Future Plans and Dreams

The sort of things that I am pretty certain will appear in the future (see development pictures) are:

  • Water Columns, both the Highland Standard type (type B) and the one with a tourie (type A).
  • A Highland Railway yard crane, based on the one on at Aviemore.
  • A Highland Railway diagram 25, twin swivel bolster.
  • Window etches for Wick Station Building and Kyle of Lochalsh engine shed (these will definitely be special order)

There are a few other more dream type items, that I will not specifically mention now (to save making a rod for my own back).  This includes a Highland loco that has presently not been covered by anybody, at least a couple more items of rolling stock, a bridge and if I can get things to work, a building too.

If you follow my blog, you may well see some of the development work on some of these things.

    Will you be producing transfer names for Highland Small Ben’s as they appeared in LMS days ? Ian Ford suggested I ask for your advice on this query at the Perth show. Thanks in advance for your reply, Peter.

      Hi Peter,

      I have been exploring this as a possibility as I had the need for a number of names for my own interests. If you go to this post http://highlandmiscellany.com/2013/11/10/chequebook-modelling-a-wee-ben/ you will see that I have done some artwork (and in fact this has moved on from this – I will do another posting on Highland Miscellany soon). At the moment, we are trying to get a manufacturer to produce them and are in discussions with a couple of people; with a couple not being interested. I am not clear on what they might cost, I doubt that many would buy them so I do foresee that the unit cost will be somewhat higher than your standard sheets from Modelmaster or the like. Keep your eyes on the Highland Miscellany site (there is a facility to put your email address into this and thus get notifications of when I post things) – details will follow at some point.

      Which of the Bens were you interested in by the way – I can look up whether this was a name I did in full or whether it needs to be assembled from the alphabet?
