    Hi all

    The J10 now has all its bits on- vacuum pipes fixed into the buffer beam with brass split pins, period coupler irons at the front, and then to cap it all- a nut on the dome....

    and for the driver to block out the motor in the cab! He will be leaning with arm up on the cab door so decided to mould up a guy, cut his arm off and make a new one out of styrene to lean on the door. He will be cut off at chest height and wedged between cab side and the motor!

    Hi All,

    Here's the question- On a steam loco was there a rule in CIE as to which side a red light was displayed front and back over the buffer beams?

    There is nothing in the 1967 handbook. Looks like the actually revised the book after steam ended c. 1963. I don't have an older copy
    "Where Seventeen Railroads Meet the Sea"

    There definitely lamp codes in steam days, though I can't recall offhand the details. Must look about...
    “An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support”

    Never argue with an idiot. He will bring you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

    Hi Guys

    Great to get some input, thanks

    I've done some searching and can only find stuff on British Lamp Codes, they discuss and display in diagrams the arrangement of lamps on the front of locos to signify types of trains, the goods they carry, and even if empty!- all white. But no mention of red lamps!

    I found on a forum thread the same question being asked about red lamps on a station pilot, a lengthy discussion ensued but no one could inform the asker as to which side, all that was confirmed was a loco should display a red lamp on the rear.

    I'm going for the right hand side facing the direction of travel....

    I have an old DSER appendix somewhere and some MGWR stuff. Will look.
