I've got a GWR Green example (re-numbered to 3205 :p ) and it is by far my smoothest running Steam Loco. Every so often the front wheels lock due to the tender drive but a little oil sorts that out. The only bad point i will make on this is that they had to make them with a large tender to fit the motor in, if they had the small version i'd give it the highest mark possible! :D

Ollie (and anyone else who might know), what's the best way to get one of these re-numbered.  Is there a source for etched number plates?

Has anyone else noticed and oddity with the DCC control of this loco?

Namely - if configured on DCC (new address assigned) and run on DCC, the loco then completely refuses to run when put back on DC? It seems fine on both after a decoder reset (CV8 to 33), but it's odd - and not isolated, having now seen it on 3 of them!

Is there a strangeness with the Lenz decoder? Or am I missing something?

Cheers,
Alan

I have a Peco Collectt Goods and I want to fit Dapol Easi Shunt couplings to it, I have seen @Caz and @PinkNosedPenguin have fitted them to the tender, but has anyone fitted them to the engine as mine will need to run around its train and go back where it came from.
