Gents,

Even if this modification is not part of the "3J&G Collection", I thought that it was worth posting it(*) here, as we never see such rigs on "this side of the pond":



Note (*): the Conrad Freightliner was stretched to 28' long by Steve ("Exkvate 3140"). He apparently built a similar one for Craig ("Quinella"), but with a 34' stretch.

Happy Easter to all members of this forum and... keep safe!

Guy great dirt shots, I love that the Conrad International 560B but those handrails fall off every time I look at it.

The Albion Reiver was normally sold by Corgi with what British Railways called a "demountable non-wheeled tank":



The problem I have is that, should the tank be in a 1/50 scale, then it would have an approx. capacity of 16.33m3 (or 3250 gal): this does not seem in line, neither with the load value indicated on the model (8 tons), nor with the maximum volume transported in those tanks (up to approx. 1000 gal), as per the B.R. advert below:



Any information on that type of BR mobile tank container is therefore welcome in order to finally decide on its real scale.

Regards.

Steve,

Both dropside tipper and skate body versions were produced by Corgi Toys:



As far as I remember, the skate model carried, either pigs (farming version) or an elephant (as part of a TV series "Daktari" gift set).

I hope this helps.
