BR (S) SOUTHERN GREEN OVERLAYS IN STOCK NOW !!!

MAY 2014 Added to the 'Stock' page are 2 sets of text and drawings to show how I convert a Lima CK coach into an RB or a SK/SO , using my Overlays .
These show where to cut and reassemble the coach sides to align, as far as possible, with the new coach .
I stress that this is just the best arrangement that I have come to , and must not be taken as the only way to do the job , i am sure somebody else has found a more efficient way of doing it , but i offer my solution as a guide .
I apologise for the poor quality of the images ( due to my lack of computer skills ).
If anybody has bought my Overlays and requires a copy of the instructions , i can email a better quality image ,so get in touch ; or see me at a show.
I will be doing the FO instructions next .


Aquitrain Lima Coach Conversion page is now updated and easier to use


IMPORTANT NOTICE January 2015.

Owing to the amount of work involved in our current barn conversion (ie; home !) , I will not have the same amount of time to allocate to Aquitrain coach production in 2015.
I envisage a maximum output of 12 RTR coaches over the year . However, I still expect to attend the usual shows and of course all other sales will continue as normal.
At the time of writing i have a stock of coaches as listed on the relevant page of the website.
I am also working on a number of new projects involving the Overlays and instruction sheets.
