Just by way of information and not wishing to "do" the NGRS out of any money BUT, have you seen the article/review in the current Garden Rail concerning the publication of the Hudson catalogue by the NGRS? Full marks to the NGRS for publishing this and for GR bringing this to the wider hobby.

However this catalogue or one very similar (113pages) has been available on-line in the public domain for some time now here:-

http://www.zelmeroz.com/album_rai...dson_LightRailwayMaterials-gs.pdf

In fact the "zelmeroz" website has been around for a very long time and it is an extremely useful resource for those interested in industrial and colonial practice with particular reference to the sugar cane industry. It also has many of the Jim Fainges drawings available too.

Shocked  Very Happy
That's great O.R. - the pdf has been added to my ever growing virtual pile of reference material (mostly military history and out-of-print wargame rules) ~ many thanks Very Happy

And there's the "rub" I reckon Wink
I don't think you're "doing" the NGRS or GR, because they are offering a hard copy, facsimile of the document, and I don't think access to an electronic copy will even dent the potential market for such a thing Cool

I have saved that link before and frequently look at it. I must say though, I bought the book at Tracks To The Trenches and can safetly say that it is not a reprint of the same Hudson Catalogue. This one is a bit more comprehensive where dimensions and construction are concerned.  Very Happy

Too many times in the past, I had "saved links" that unfortunately got taken down - I'd recommend downloading the pdf and saving the actual document Cool
