Once I get the new layout up and running I fancy running a "Breakdown train" and whilst I'm waiting for planning permission on the layout from SWHTBO (she wants to convert the garage to a new bedroom!) I thought I could put the necessary models together.
Before I start reaching for the sticky backed plastic though I thought it'd be a good idea to make sure I'm on the right track (little pun there ).
I'm assuming the following make-up - working from the engine ... carriage for the breakdown crew, tool van, match trucks/crane, goods brake. With the carriage, tool van and brake van braked and the crane/match trucks through piped ... or would everything be braked ... or have I got the make up wrong, for instance wold the brake van be in reality some form of passenger/coaching stock brake van?
The period I *try* to model is around the time of grouping L&Y/L&NW very early LMS
