GWR Prairie Tank - a bargain!
« on: Apr 14 2018 11:20 »
Just posted this for a member on the G3S Websites 'Buy & Sell' page.

Thought about repeating the details here but why not go and have a look at the G3S website if you haven't done so recently. Be pleased to publicise any other Buy & Sells too - just let me know via the contacts area...

No reason to be sorry....... it was your message here which sold it!

I didn't buy it but recommended it to a friend with the offer to convert it to R/C.

Ashley,
What email address did you use to submit your enquiry?
All @gauge3.org.uk addresses are (as per request of Liz) forwarded to webmaster.gaugethree@yahoo.co.uk (it is a "catchall" setting).

Ian,
When I retired as webmaster, the email handling was never transferred from my server to WIX (I got the impression Liz didn't know how to set it up) and at her request the setting referred to above was put in place.

Regards,
John.

Sure, it's easy Ashley - just contact me via the Website (use the contacts page).

Just as a broad comment about this - I'll certainly post any "reasonable" Buy & Sells from G3S members but will also extend this service to anyone who is also (shall we say) a known member of the G3 community - but of course it's up to everyone using this service to exercise the normal cautions (caveat emptor etc) when doing so.

I'm also going to date-tag any posts in this area and will remove ads after what I deem to be a "reasonable" period (unless you contact me to withdraw/amend/extend it beforehand).

Hope this is useful.

Regards,

IanT

I've no idea how the emails work John and I'm afraid I probably know a good deal less than Liz in this area.

However, stuff posted on the Website seems to find it's way to me and I try to make sure it finds anyone else it needs to. Pretty sure this is not too high tech - but it seems to work OK for now...    :)

Ian,

The *@gauge3.org.uk addresses appear in various places (certainly older published material even if not in current usage) and may be "lost" if not picked up from the "catchall" redirection.

I can easily reset my server to its previous settings where individual @gauge3.org.uk messages are sent to intended recipients (e.g. chairman@gauge3.org.uk would redirect to Roy's personal email address).

Regards,
John.

As you were talking about the website, I went across and had a look, very good.
In the section marked Gallery, there is a picture of what looks like a LBSCR 0-4-2 but it doesn't appear in the actual gallery, if that makes sense.  Do you know who's it is and if there are any other photos?

Hi Jon,

It was taken at Barling in July 2014 by Ted (who else?) and I think that's the Tiptree layout it's running on - so a few clues there. A very nice model though...here's a slightly better side view.
