Hi Doug.
I have started design and build on a new 'T' gauge London based layout around the 1980s/90s period featuring 3rd rail BR slam door stock and a section of LT surface line operation.
I would like to ask if it would be possible for you to add some London Transport buses to your selection of road vehicles, such as Routemasters and possibly an RT or RTL and maybe also an RF coach please.
They would certainly be helpful to me for my layout.
I look forward to hearing you views on my request, after all you did ask for ideas.
Best regards, Noel Dollimore.

Sounds an interesting layout...you'll have to document progress on it here. And I'll take a look at doing a few double deckers, etc.

I have to admit I'm not geeky enough to instantly recognise what a RT, RLT or RF looks like. :oops: Well, that's what Google is for! And that's even after having seen one or two of the London Bus Museum's buses on an away day at Crich at their London special event.

Hi Doug.
Thank you very much for your prompt reply, I'll post some pictures of the buses to help you identify them.
For info An RT was The Standard 1940s/1960s AEC double decker and an RTL was the Leyland engined version, (only visible difference is a Leyland style radiator rather than an an AEC one).
On second thoughts, probably the RF is a little out of period for what I'm doing so an AEC merlin would be more in keeping, if at all possible please.
Whatever you can achieve will be great as no one does any LT buses in 'T'.
Many thanks Doug, I'll look forward to seeing some results whenever you get time to 'play', Hope these pics are of some use.
Best regards, Noel.

Hi Doug, the pictures you messaged me are the sort of thing I was thinking of.

That's good Mike. They should be straight forward to do.

Just for completeness, here's the pics I sent Mike:

I'm also looking at a cinema...based on an art deco design of a local closed cinema:

They're in the development stage at present....but will appear in the shop very soon.

I think I need to adapt the run around loops for the bridge into a test track assembly....should be simple to do.

Its based on the now closed Galaxy cinema in Long Eaton, Nottingham.

Next will be a Norman church, followed by some rows of 1960s and 1970s shops.

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.

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 :

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