vintage vehicles

Post by graymac on Mon Mar 17, 2014 3:45 pm

I'm wondering about road vehicles for older routes - the "British Railways" days when the Class 117 DMUs were really modern kit!!
I've been collaborating with mobile1 and so far there's a "new" Vauxhall to show for it.

Those old bangers are a lot harder to build than some of the newer stuff, there's too many curves and faces to allow for simplicity, so a few compromises have to be made in practice. It's a pity it is so difficult to get models made with some of the 3D apps to work with BVE.

This took a while to put together, fortunately I didn't need to go to London to do it, as I can't stand the ****** place!

Great!

Since you don't like London, I guess Gray's Inn Street isn't owned by you? =D

 Very Happy  If gray had enough money to own Gray's Inn Street then gray might like London a little more! Even ONE property in that location would be worth a LOT of money.
As it is, I haven't been in London now for at least twenty years and if I ever see it again before they pack me off to meet Satan then it will still be too soon. To be honest, I'm not keen on Dublin either - I'm just too long in the countryside and wide open spaces to want to go back to city life.

Although gray wouldn't mind the "Inn" part of the address  jocolor

Well, the hotel I slept in during my two and a half days in London was near that street. Though I was wrong, it's a road and not a street. Whatever...^^

A variation on the Bristol bus I made the other week. This is  a Red&White version, the company had extensive operations throughout Gloucestershire, Monmouthshire and Herefordshire and a big depot at Chepstow just over the English-Welsh border.



Obviously, this will be useable in the "Cwm Twypsn" Welsh route. The extension of which is rather overdue - must start the "headology"  afro
