    During one of my brief escapes from the demo stand over the weekend I passed by Jim's stand.

    On the outside of the stand he had a sample of a forthcoming bogie brick wagon built up.

    It looks superb and since I have wanted a bogie brick wagon since never managing to find a 4mm kit for one. I had contemplating building one using my cutter but since Jim has done the deed I have my name down for a couple.

    As soon as Jim puts images on his site I will update this thread.

    Sounds interesting. Don't have a clue what they look like. I'll look forward to seeing it.

    Cheers

    :scratchchin: I'm sure I need one of these. :avatar:It'll be nice to see the level of detail that Jim puts into his. How much were they ?

    I am sure that I need several;). Jim said that they would be less than £100 each and that they would be equivalent to a couple of normal sized wagons. I can see me twisting my son's arm for some for birthday/christmas next year...last year he got me a couple of Jims new (at the time) grain wagons.

    Sorry Toto,

    I completely missed your question, Jim was hoping that they would come in at under £100 but in reality you are getting the equivalent etches of a couple of four wheeled wagons for the money so it does represent good value.

    No worries Rob.

    I will more than likely have myself down for one. They look an interesting wagon.

    No mention of it on his website as yet. :scratchchin: You would have thought that there would have been a bit of a pre-release promotion of it. :(

    Even in 4mm that's a nice looking wagon. So I guess O gauge should be a ripper ! :thumbs:

    Cheers, Gary.

    Years ago Triang or Hornby Dublo did one in 4mm. Might be some around on the Bay.

    Yes, and Trix did one as well.

    I have two of the Dublo ones, one in LNER livery (with a small NE in the corner, not the lettering as shown above) and a later BR example. The Tri-ang one was moulded plastic (if I recall correctly, done in a rather bright red) and the Dublo one was printed tinplate on a cast metal chassis. I'm not sure what the Trix one was made from, but I think it was one of the wagons from their tinplate era.

    This is the one on Jim's site (photo copyright Jim McGeown) - I hope that a couple will wing there way to me as birthday/Christmas pressies from my son this year.

    In between the move and builders I completely forgot to update this thread. I did manage to twist my son's arm and I now have a pair of these awaiting my return to modelling. Once I recall which box they reside in I will take some photos.
