Well I missed the postman yesterday but I’ve managed to pick them up from the sorting office this morning. I’ve managed to get all of my shipments from the States without any stinging handling fees this end which I’m pretty chuffed about.

Anyway my Boley fridge vans have arrived, hopefully I can get some more of these including a flat bed or two. However Boley have stopped licensing them so their supply if very limited so if you get a chance to get hold of some then go for it before its too late!

I have photos of these not great quality but taken this morning.

These will become the Domingo produce vans, i haven’t decided if I’m going to repaint the cabs yet, maybe but again not before the show.

I’m hopefully going to be able to recreate the Ford cargo reefer out of a Herpa/Reitze model, I can get hold of an add on fridge unit for above the cab a nice little repaint and that should compliment the Boley quite well.

Well happy trucking…

  1. Dave,

    Sorry I cannot Email you via Big Blue, or RMWeb, I’m not a member.

    I’ve been a modeller of American outline since visiting TVNAM on 11th June !

    When I was there, you kindly let me have a look at your “Bullfrogs”, and I think you told me where they came from, but I’ve forgotten.

    Can you tell me again, please?




    1. Hi John
      Thanks for getting in touch and it was nice to meet you at Tvnam glad we were able to inspire you to model US railroads. The Bullfrogs are from Fasttracks, Click here
      Its a very good website, full of videos and tutorials on how to build them, and they are really a good price. There are as you will see, plenty of accessories to help you get the best out of the bullfrogs! One good thing is that they are different handed you can build them 2 ways round, depending on which side of the layout or which way round the turnouts are if you know what I mean.

      Hope that helps, let me know if you need any further help with them.


  2. Thanks Dave,

    That was a fast reply!

    I have been in touch with their maker, but I was hoping to get some in the UK.

    Ah well, I’ll send for a few extras; I may use ’em myself, or sell them on.
