Photos fine now....

The Bogie Well Wagon is NOT German....it is an Ex GWR wagon, with Boiler Load....Mainline probably!



Looks very much like a Mainline Crocodile, seen here on my railway:





Quite versatile, based on my Christmas train!

It might look like a train set to you but it gives The Small Controller & me a lot of pleasure!

Mineral wagon today is an unknown body (again) but the Wakefield address would be just what father would like, this is a coke wagon, what a name Crigglestone! anyway makes a nice alternative.

Kris
While that's true about the Brighton electric loco's being converted into bogie brake vans,this lovely model is not one of them.
This is a later built 'Queen Mary'-is it a kit?
