Future Plans

Scale drawing of D99

D99 50' Saloon

With the Grampians complete and the Edinburgh and Glasgow stock underway thoughts turn to what to do next. Leafing through Mike William's excellent new book on Caledonian Railway Carriages (or even glancing at the cover) suggests the contemporary 50' stock such as the saloon drawn above and/or the semi-corridor stock designed for the Callander and Oban or even the earlier version of the full brake with a fully panelled body and 8' wheelbase bogies (below).

Scale drawing of CL8

Pickersgill's (the Caledonian's last CME) take on the classic Caley 0-6-0. Introducced in 1918, with a higher set boiler than the Class 812 and 'teardrop' cab windows they were quite distinctive among the various classes of Caley 0-6-0. Most were superheated by the LMS and many lasted into the early 1960s.

Currently no new 7mm scale items are proposed.

Caledonian Railway Coat of Arms

"Wha dare meddle wi' me" - a loose translation of the Scottish motto (nemo me impune lacessit, litterly meaning "no-one provokes me with impunity") which was appropriated along with the Scottish coat of arms (without any sanction from the Lord Lyon, King of Arms) by the Caledonian Railway Co.
