    Great going, Steve - you obviously have great affection for the MRC . . .
    (and a lovely shot of 20048 in there <sigh> :thumbs:)

    The fourth photo that you posted was of a tank wagon - it looked like a 14ton RCH tank wagon, but stretched and with bogies. Any chance of more pix of that one, please? And any more info on it?

    TIA

    Hi Steve,

    many thanks for the thought, but the coach show is an ex GWR (or possibly BR) Autocoach.

    Like the 47 & 52 pictures.

    cheers
