What sort of printed items would you like me to take a look at producing?

All suggestions and ideas will be considered...so over to you all!


Please can you do class 158 DMU and class 101 DMU if poss? :P

In the meantime, here's a hot off the press....well printer:

Hi
Could extend the range by having a various types of warehouses /factorys/cars modern and pre war/Double decker buses as only single heights being done/container wagon loads in the 40ft and 45ft long.......in the rolling stock class 37 /class 47 / class 20 / class 33....mk2 and mk4 coaches for the 80's and modern layouts.
Extended range in the railway scenes such as pre and post war railway station building types/engine sheds/stairs and esculators.

With Kind Regards
Graham

I've just added a couple of new items to the Talking T Gauge Shop.....a 102 tonne bogie tanker, and a church. Both of these were suggested by Nutter.

Needs some tweaks and some detail adding...but not far off!

Looking good!

With the all freight stock that is becoming available now it is getting easier and easier to plan a T gauge layout with long trains, but still dwarfed by the scenery. Although may still need to hide so extra power chassis under some wagon bodies - not sure what the haulage capacity of the current power chassis is.

I'm intending to put together a rake of half a dozen of both these cement wagons and the gas tankers to see how they run on The Bridge in a week or so when it's at Crich. My wagons are printed solid so as to try and give then sufficient weight to run without bouncing off the rails...and not too heavy so they produce too much drag....something I think is a fine balance!

Doug, just had the old brain working again and wondered how the road tankers were coming on?
Been looking at bo bo locos and was thinking 19m chassis under a class 67 body shell, brings everything into 21st century.

In the pre-storm calm...or should I say the pre-show wait, I've been taking a look at things I've started but not finished! :oops:

And I've found three things ready to put in the shop:

Left to right......a Routemaster RM, a Routemaster RML, and a road tanker.

I also have the Class 170 "Turbostar" DMU shell set...an early version of the set shown here with a transfer applied Scotrail livery, but the shop version will have a downloadable generic transfer pattern that can be changed to your favourite livery :

The same will be for the Class 180 "Adelante"...shown here in First GWR livery:

I'll start adding these to the shop after I get things put away after the Warley show.....
