[RW] Request for reference material

Fire up your 3D modelling tool and start building some rolling stock, or find out what others are previewing here. If you have questions about how to make the blueprints work or what names mean what in models, here's the place to find out your answers.

I'm looking for any reference material for the GCR's Robinson 04.
There is an 04 drawing available to purchase here:

Rest assured that money spent on good drawings will be money well spent!

Post by numnutz »

Lots of diagrams here for rolling stock including MPVs, Wagons, passenger carrying and others, mainly BR but others included in PDF format: http://www.barrowmoremrg.co.uk/Prototype.html. Not quite as detailed as a plan but enough to get you started.

Hope its Useful

Has anyone got any more info/drawings/anything on LU works stock like the ones in this pic? http://geoff-plumb.fotopic.net/p47963131.html . The brakevans look ex-mainline although I don't know where from, but the bogie opens are definitely LU - and there's some pics of similar flats around. Thanks!

I'll definitely second that as a request for someone to build the wagons! And if anyone can make either the RSC or the freeware Pannier tank look like that then I'd love them forever... :D

The pannier is in progress :) the dirtier the better, even ( more dirt is less work ). The wagons look fun and relatively easy to do, I just can't find anything about them.

Ooh I say! In that case it looks like I'm going to love you forever! :wink: :lol:

I'll have a look around to see if I can find anything out about the wagons; I'm sure I've seen something somewhere.

The bogie 3-plank is apparently called "Elk", which doesn't help google searches at all. I guess the flats are just 3planks with the body removed.

This looks interesting:

Hmm. Anyone got a shot of a LT standard BR pattern 16t steel wagon? just want the lettering. The shots I've found are delightfully dirty ones but that doesn't help read anything :P

This would be useful to me as well.

Add LT 20t ( BR type ) brakevans to that list of photos-for-lettering too, the ones I can find are either too small or the paint is so faded you can't read anything - sadly they were actually reasonably looked after in service, unlike the pannier tanks.

Hi,

Anyone know where I can get some detailed class 395 'javelin' plans? I've found a good one here:

http://www.railalliance.co.uk/docs/rsl10hitachi.pdf

but the resolution is poor, if anyone knows this image in a higher resolution it would really help!

Thanks.

Hi,

Has anyone got any idea of some dimensions of the cab of a Class 73,

I started off like so:

http://i42.tinypic.com/549dsh.jpg

However, Picture evidence showed that the desk structure came up to the top of the window like so:

http://i44.tinypic.com/6o2zjk.png

But it still doesn't look right. So any measurements will do, even if its the diameter of the speedo :D

Many Thanks
