Re: Caley 7mm Group

Hopefully not stating the obvious, but there is a Caledonian Railway Goup on Facebook, as well as O Gauge and Scottish Modellers groups.If folk are adverse to more technology,these might work?

Re: ModelRail Glasgow this past weekend

This may be a redundant question, but are the poems to be published? That was a fine example !

Re: Callander - what is going on here?

If it is not an Excursion of some sort, could it be a scene from Mobilization in August 1914?

Re: Carlisle on Tuesday August 21 1928

I ordered this issue from the U.K. While the February issue contains the Pullman article, it does not have the Carlisle article mentioned here. Could anyone clarify which issue of Steam Days has the Carlisle article?

Many thanks

Re: Where is this, please?

Gents,

Are we sure it is Beattock? No.60 was a Balornock Loco (Glasgow-Perth) in Pre-Grouping days. Not to say she could not travel further afield- but is it possible it is closer to home?

Re: CR 72 Class Replica New-build project

Chris, The 72/113 were the final flowering of Caley Express Passenger 4-4-0 development.Despite some serious issues- they were the most numerous, long lived-and one missed preservation by the slightest margin. I would happily contribute to such a venture.However; I would also happily support a Super...

Re: The Caledonian at the movies.

The name of the firm with footage of Cardean (and River 4-6-0s etc) in LMS days is the Hillside Publishing Company. I believe these are the actual Royal Train vehicles- not regular W.C.J.S .

Re: Caledonian 123 reboilered

Jim,

To my knowledge it was a spare "Jumbo " boiler that was fitted? There were suggestions made in the Railway Magazine that MacIntosh had earlier considered fitting a larger Dunalastair 1 boiler in Caley days.

Although I could not comment on the "sound" of Cardean's whistle, as luck would have it, I was thumbing thru' a copy of the January 1932 edition of Railway Magazine. There was a contribution by our late President, Alan Dunbar on the subject of 903's whistle and that of No.147 also. "M...
