I have a cunning plan for a custom based on the LGB Toy Train stake truck:


which would be greatly assisted if anyone had any of the side stakes from one which they no longer want (or even a whole truck with them at a reasonable price). I need 10 or 12 (12 gives me two spares in case of breakages).

Do they all need to be the same colour Gordon?

No, Mike, any colour will do. The idea is to make some detachable truck bodies which could then be slotted onto the Toy Train stake waggon.

Thanks for the info. I'll have a look anyway as I am also after Toy Train box van doors.

I'll have a look. I made some up out of plasticard when I built my custom ammunition wagon for the rail gun.

Nice work, Mike. I've various odds and ends of plasticard and similar, but none suitable. I can get some from Monk Bar Models in York, but when I'll get there next is I don't know.

If I can't find some for you Gordon, I'll happily knock a few up for you. What maximum length would you need? B the way, the book arrived a few minutes ago, thanks.
