    Dynamo pulleys for the bogie wheelsets - apart from the very nice casting in the MMP kits, which manufacturer supplies 7mm dynamo pulleys for Mk.1 carriages? Alternatively, has anyone devised a method of making such items? I have a need for around ten of these items so resin casting may be an option.

    Interiors for compartment carriages - what is the WT experience with or opinion of the Easybuild interior parts, particularly the etch corridor screen?

    thank you, Graham

    Hi D S,

    My Easybuild corridor stock has a lasered one cut by the "guv" (RIP) . The Easybuild etch (although i hav'nt used myself) has been used by people i know and is ok.

    Personally, I think the Cavalier/ABS LMS coach dynamo is a good match for the Mk1.

    Might I also recommend the CPL passenger communication gear brass castings? One of them is a good match for the BR style.

    Thank you Heather. The Easybuild kit includes a dynamo, I am after the pulley for the bogie wheelset - do you think that item is in the ABS range?
    You can... those parts are way down the line as yet, past the starter and beyond the bridge.

    You know what? I don't think anyone has ever considered anyone would want to model such a thing. I don't think I've seen any manufacturer supplying the pulley.

    I misread your original post - too early on a Sunday morning, I think.
