Wanted: GRS W and U coaches
« on: May 01, 2017, 12:51:32 PM »
I need a couple of GRS Wisbech and Upwell Coaches, either the standard or narrow gauge versions, pereferably unbuilt but will consider part built.
I need these coaches urgently to help expand my gauge 3 'cameo' exhibition layout Lea Siding for the Swindon show in September.
Please contact me on 07790 439722 or geoffreynicholls@btinternet.com

Geoff,

I am not willing to part with my two bogie tramcars (I have 3 GER/LNER Y6 W&U tram locos.) but, if nobody offers you the GRS kits, I can offer parts (sides/ends/solebars/end platforms/buffers/ironwork and gate sets/Slaters wheels) for the 4-wheel cars (nos. 1 to 6). I also have the appropriate GER period transfers from a custom sheet ordered from GRS.

The sides/ends/platforms are cast in resin....the solebars are cast in whitemetal.

The buffers and gates/ironwork are the standard GRS whitemetal parts.

You would need to supply the roof (roll from aluminium sheet) and the floor (plywood) and the other bits and pieces to complete.

Regards,
John.
My fellow Members, ask not what your Society can do for you, ask what you can do for your Society.
