I'm a big fan of the BR Standard 4MT 2-6-4Ts so it's very nice to see you have one, also. I  have one DCC-fitted, here, one (non-DCC fitted) on loan to Trepol Bay (for DCC fitting later this year) and another awaiting DCC-fitting (it will be a long time). I need a few to run the last pre-dieselisation working timetable.

A hard working class 5 in BR black, shown here with a duplicate LNER shunter (maybe a candidate for a conversion/repaint & Re-number) + an Ivatt 2F in need of some repair!

The PRPS has a humble, but growing collection of DMU's, the current stock are these three, which includes one in Strathclyde Passenger Transport livery.  More are on the way though following some successful bidding :)

Bringing up the rear of the collection is a couple more 4F's (I think) and an LMS shunter which is a non-runner & may find itself "scrapped"

Wholeheartedly agree, lovely loco - are they relatively straightforward to convert?

I think the 6 figure SKU numbers (as opposed to the earlier four figure SKU ones) are easier to convert (from what Douglas at Wickness Models has told me). The one that I had DCC-converted is one of those later versions, as is the second one on loan to Trepol Bay. (I sold a four-figure one which it replaced.)

A nice collection of DMUs. I saw the ex-Glasgow orange Class 101s at Manchester Piccadilly shortly before their withdrawal.

To round off the motive power inspections, the HST's are last through the hands of the inspection team
