Real coal loads

A very popular enhancement to any steam locomotive is to add a real coal load to the bunker or tender. Using genuine Nottinghamshire coal which is ground to an authentic scale, say goodbye to the plastic offering supplied with most ready-to-run models. Coal wagons can also benefit from real coal loads too...MGR wagons can be loaded to reflect the colliery loading method with a choice of 2/3 humps or a single heaped load.

Footplate crew fitting

Why not add footplate crew to bring your locomotives to life? Hopefully none of us will see a train passing by unattended, similarly an empty cab on the model network looks out of place. Using crews from several manufacturers posed in animated positions and weathered, a new level of realism can be achieved realatively simply.

Lamps and disks

Lamps and disks played a vital role in the day to day running of the railway network until the introduction of train reporting codes displayed on the headcodes of diesel locomotives. The number of lamps and their position on the front of the locomotive identified the type of train it was hauling, which greatly assisted signalmen to set the appropriate path. When diesel locomotives were introduced, the correct lights could be switched on from the cab. Each light had a disk mounted over it, and when not in use, the disk was folded in half to determine that the light was off, rather than a failed bulb etc. The visible side of the folded disk was painted the same colour as the front of the locomotive to help it blend in. For all illuminated lights, the disk was latched open to reveal a white painted disk and a clear lens to allow light through for added visibility and night time operation. These can be fitted to your choice permanently, or attached with grab and grip for total flexibility.
