Hello all, Yesterday, 19/05, the UK's oldest passenger diesel multiple units retired. Chiltern Railways had been running 2 class 121 dmu's on the Princes Risborough to Aylesbury line at peak times. These railcars date from the late 1950's, and were the UK's only vacuum braked trains to run on the national network. I took a ride on the nearly 60 year old train a few days back.
plarailfan posted a topic in Japanese: Other Gauges & ScalesHope this is ok to post on here and apologies, if it's not ! Here's a first, for Plarail - I've started a cloudfunding project, to pay for the design work, of a 3D printed class 60 body shell, which will be produced by Shapeways. 3D printing is quite expensive, so to try and keep the cost down, I'm looking at being able to fit the body onto a Tomy EF65 chassis. https://www.flickr.com/photos/41294071@N02/15603388907/ Shapeways may charge anything up to, or maybe, around £100 to print a body shell, but until they have the design work, it's hard to be prescise at this stage. I'm hoping they could do a print, for nearer to £40 and in order to gauge the cost quickly, the cloudfunding, for the body design work, expires in a month's time, https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/design-cost-of-a-plarail-compatible-class-60-train/x/9529593
