The middle of last year my wife and her friends went on a NENTA tour to Crich Tram museum. When I dropped her off at the station, I noticed that most of the stock was Air Conditioned Mk2’s.
I then decided I would like to build up a small rake, I thought five coaches topped and tailed would be nice. I purchased three, that’s all I could find at the local swap-meet and proceeded to strip them and paint them. This had to be another cheap project, this time I had to pay an average of £6 per coach for Mainline/Dapol unboxed ones. Not as cheap as the DRS donor coaches!!!
Transfers this time were Railtec, and very good they are. Three down, two more to do.
Bachmann Collectors Club have just done a 37/7 – come on Bachmann how about a 47, or two!!!!!!!
