    John, the cut of minerals... are they all the same? I ask because one looks like a Chas Rbts slope side and that would be a nice wee beastie in any scale.

    Hi Graham I think it's just the photo that makes it look that way although a couple of slope sided ones will shortly be on their way to me I need two trains of 25 wagons

    Excellent John,

    I had a drawing for one of these and I planned to scratch build one many moons ago but then I realised that Gladiator did a kit so there much point in scratch building one.

    Hi John I like most Brassmasters kits (i'm building two 4mm kits now) but I could never build any-thing in 2mm I would never see them:)). I hope you can come to the S7 meet in Sotwell in April so I can say hello again:thumbs:.

    John,

    Don't you build your 2mm locos with split frames. These days it seems the way to go.
