I know you're searching for an LMS version so I say go for it.
Once you have just give me enough time to pack a bag before your Domestic Overlord sets out :laugh:

In my opinion, the Farish class 2MT 2-6-0 is one of the finest steam locos they've made.
Exquisite looker and a very smooth, quiet runner.
Blame me - I can take it :D
I just took a look in my copy of Britain's Model Trains 2015 and it got an excellent write up. It was their 2013 model of the year.

I'm off to Tasmania (again) at Easter so I'll keep an eye out for it down there.

Most folk bring back tea towels as souvenirs of their trips.....  :whistle:

I'm thinking like making them useful and covering them with plaster and scenic stuff  ;)

Are you saying I should buy one?

I have three of them, they are, as Newportnobby says exquisite. They look amazing and the coreless motor loco drive is ultra smooth quiet and controllable. Not only that it will pull a pretty reasonable load too.

Amazingly (to me) the design of the mechanism has meant almost no compromises to the body - the loco even has cab and backhead detail!

I say go for it too!

Regards

Roy

It's certainly feasible the town is shrouded in rain while the goods yard etc is bathed in sunlight but, I agree, it could do with some 'dirtying up' perhaps :hmmm:

I'll go with that Nobby. The rooves could certainly do with a tad of weathering and perhaps the odd bird and associated droppings!!
Cheers

...the problem is the new Bachman 4F is stunning are my old ones good enough???

If you don't get the new one then your old ones are more than good enough. I have a bit of a thing for 4Fs myself. It's hard to stop collecting them.

Hear hear Pete. I too have a fleet of them. Mine are being modified with BHE tenders. It's amazing how many different types there were...covered for snow duty, self weighing varieties,coal rails, etc., etc..

Am I the only one who misses the glaringly obvious until its photographed and there for all the world to see  ???

You're not alone in that, Paul :no:
In fact, taking pics/vids is a great way of then spotting if anything is wonky/amiss and fault finding in general.

The very reason I don't do selfies  :D

Hi Paul
Just to say a belated Hi and welcome.
I have been exhibiting layouts for some time so if you need any advice I'll try and help. PM me
If you look at the bottom of this, you'll see the latest one I have been involved with.
Yours is a great layout and certainly different from the run of the mill layout. Have you thought of the N Gauge annual Show at the AGM if one appears near you?
Cheers
N Gauge Bob
