Hornby runner wagon

A while ago I thought that a runner wagon to go with the 'bitsa' 03 would be a smart purchase as many of the photos of the class in the 1970s include one. This got as far as looking in the Peco catalogue for the Parkside conflat kit and no further.

Fast forward to a few days ago and at the bottom of the 'scenic bits' box I found a Hornby GW lettered conflat. I think this came with a box of things from my father. It was examined and after some rubbing down and the addition of tie bars and vac pipes it was repainted using a photo in Robert Hendry's wagon book as reference.

  1. Looks good. Memories of 03's on a summer saturday pulling ex London trains out of Norwich station, all wheels slipping like mad, or slithering to a stop at the signals. Not that many 03's could have had flats!
