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

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?

ModelMaster etched brass plates are available the NGS. I believe they have several to suit the Peco Collett.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Toss up for me, correct tender or sound fitted, afraid sound won.   :)

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.

Couple of Peco Collets on E-bay at the moment:

BR Black 3208

GWR Green 2238

I fear they will go for really silly money...
Still planning a layout...

Very true - the Peco model is more detailed and is DCC fitted, but it will be fascinating to see - so far the BR Black is at 33 plus change and the GWR Green is at 67.

There has been quite a few of these popping up on EvilBay over the last couple of weeks with most not going for silly money.

Will keep an eye on the latest batch.

What is the problem ? They are not being produced any more, so if you want one and have the spare cash (taking into account other responsibilities in consultation with significant other ) where's the grief ? It is seller delimited by def.!

No! Further to the above !!

I have been retired for several decades, she has recently done so (after keeping me in a certain style to which I had become accustomed ! )

So, why should I not indulge a prezzie to her * ?
 I did not in this recent ebay bid, but I could have ! easily
who are y'all  to judge !

*coz we both liked it but were not in position to keep it then
