The new year has heralded in the annual roll call of PRPS motive power to assess what maintenance will be required in order to keep everything running smoothly, especially with the prospect of some loco's making a long haul south this year to Cant Cove and beyond

1st up is the 3 class 47's - running numbers 47594 in Rail Freight Red, D1505 in 2 tone Green & 47710 "Sir Walter Scott" in Scotrail livery (only this one is DCC so far)

Here we have (from L to R): B17 "Barnsley"; V2 "Coldstreamer"; A1 "Tornado" - PRPS have been lucky enough to house this cracker over the winter ahead of her 2016 mainline steam schedule :)  The only one not yet DCC is the V2 as I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the body off!

Some of the stars of the collection - the A4's Mallard & Sir Nigel Gresley (on loan from the national collection and the Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive Trust Ltd) as well as A2 532 "Blue Peter" (in need of a good clean!).  Only the A4's are DCC at the moment (the A2 runs with a bit of a limp)

Completing the "A" line up, A3 4472 is also making an appearance here alongside the J39 & 8F 3107 (only the J39 is DCC)

That is indeed a very fine collection with plenty of candidates to haul through enthusiasts' specials at various time periods. D1505 could take over from my D1662 (which is a priority for DCC fitting this Spring) on a special from Cornwall. (Two portions will be combined at Wadebridge.)

Next up your coaches? 8-)

Lovely photos, as always :) What are he engines sitting on? They look like the DelPrado display bases. I'd love to have some of whatever those are kicking around for when I've got several locos out to play ;)

Morning, you are correct, they are the Del Prado bases, I have amassed a few of those over the years and am using a few of the british outline ones to form a Barry-esque scrap yard scene on the layout - so I had a few spare bases.

Thanks. I look forward to that. Next month, D1662 will go to the head of the queue for DCC fitting.

Caledonian Railway is represented by 375, 4-4-0 tender loco & a kit built N2 & a rescued NCB pug (found languishing in a siding at the Kinneil Colliery when it closed in the mid 1980's) - none of these are DCC & a bit of journalistic licence on the NCB pug back story :)
