    I don't know if one you you can help - at the weekend I snapped this new Gauge 1 GWR railcar on my mini-studio on the Model Rail stand at Warley.

    It is due to be released as a kit or RTR, but in the hysterics of The Warley Show I never got the details from the supplier :oops: . I think they were going to get back to me, but press day waits for nobody sadly.

    It's very pretty I'm sure you'll agree if nothing else :)

    I managed to miss that, very nice.

    It is being done by Peter Smith in Exeter I think, he showed me the start of it at Shepshed back in October.

    His contact details aren't to hand but if you need them I think can probably dig them out.

    Thanks Simon - I'm not normally so disorganised, but running the mini-studio on the Model Rail stand goes from sublime peace to total chaos. The busiest bit is Sunday pm around 4pm when the main manufactures allow their displays to be ransacked by the magazines!

    I'm no expert on bigger stuff, it was around 2ft 3 long I recall.

    Although his website doesn't show the railcar I am pretty certain it will be Peter, the website with contact details is here

    Thanks Simon - I've issued the office instructions to give them a buzz. One would look great on your garden railway, I wonder if they loan it out for shake down testing? ;)

    I'm sure I could persuade the engineers to clear it for running on the Wenbridge line:))
