That is extremely nice platelayer. I would definitely have bought one of those but am restricting myself to goods wagons.

Have a soft spot for those, used to travel between Slough and Windsor on them.

I just had to have Number 22. It used to be on the Severn Valley Railway along time ago, when i was a very young P-way volunteer :lol: .My late father
used to travel on these often in his younger days. I quite fancy the Dapol art deco one, so i will have to start saving up for that one, although t`s a lot cheaper than the Heljan version.

It’s nice to get something that you have a link with.

I recently got a Minerva Pannier tank with a shed plate and number from Slough. Used to get the occasional ride in the sidings so it may have been one I had been on. Then again it may not. :D

I have a Minerva pannier an 8750, looking a while back to getting a rivetted tank pannier. But a Railcar made me buy it instead😄
