Cheers Kev its a model of the R&D electrical test coach Prometheus. The real one was used in the late 70's to test the new BW pantograph. For this roll it was usualy attached to the back of a normal service train. The coach was later used for testing the third generation electric locos classes 89,90,91. :thumbs

Quite an unusual prototype and nicely made Dave.
I presume the windows in the roof were to allow visual observations of the pantograph when on the move?

Yes thats right Frank there was a raised platform inside so the engineers could look out through the windows and see the pan in action. For further info on the coach have a look here..

Thats great Dave . I do like the music..

I am currently gathering information and assembling the rakes of rolling stock that made up most of the regular service trains to use the branch. I think I have identified all the different locomotive classes  to use the branch in the period 1954 to 1964 and in most cases the individual engines from those classes.A programme of renumbering the stock and locomotives to to reflect this information is now underway and when the other platform sections are completed the sight of a ten coach rake of suburbans topped and tailed by a couple of Green Standard Class 3 Tanks will make a fine sight coming to a stop beneath the canopy.

I still need to do some research on the first green dmus to work the branch, to identify which of the  ex GWR twin sets of  diesel railcars were used on the line  as opposed to the single units , to establish whether any of the Private Owners locomotives  from firms on the dock system or the PBA  Dock system  locomotives ever worked into the station and to find details of some of the specialist freight vehicles  used on the Albright & Wilson traffic.
