Hi All,

I'm modelling GWR (and beyond) based on Cornish China Clay branchlines. I'm looking for a straightforward kit for a 45xx 2-6-2T or a small Prairie. Is anyone aware of the available kits for these locos? The plan is to build at least 3 with the worst result going onto eBay!! (sad isn't it!)

For those specialising in Clay and its transport, there is a newish Yahoo eGroup too.

Just to explain more about my layout plans - I have designed a 2 level layout with two Cornish Clay dries on an upper level branchline above a seven bay fiddle yard. There is a GWR station planned at the (exposed) junction and a second halt on the upper level. Based on Burngullow West and Crugwallins and foreshortened due to lack of space, the halt and station are fictitious so I can use a collection of GWR railcars!

The plan is to build modern clay dries as well as linhays for each siding on the same foot-print. This will enable me to switch eras very quickly. Half the fiddle yard will have GWR and the other half a selection of diesels from Warships through to EWS 37's. Naturally the BR blue William Cookworthy is included!

Looking forward to hearing about the 45xx kits....
