They're all made by Intermountain. Remiss of me not to mention this on both my CP Rail and my BCR posts.

Sorry about that.

Yours is an F unit if my feeble memory serves me OK? I've an Intermountain FP7 with B unit. Both wonderful locos.

Yup
Itís the F7 A+B in Santa Fe blue war bonnet- which just kind of matches the colours of the fictitious Portobello and Joppa North Sea Coastal Railroad.
Every time I gear myself up to reveal the purchase to the family accountant, Intermountain delay the arrival another month or three.  I was most recently due to announce that I had my Christmas sorted, as arrival was due December, but itís now moved out to February, which rather uncomfortably coincides with the accountants birthday!
Iím sure sheíll be thrilled for me though. 😎😳🙏

I've found that if I admit to ordering something 2-3 years ago, I'm less accountable for stuff all of a sudden denting the bank account by reason of diminished responsibility for decisions taken in times past. This softened the reaction to the purchase of the two CP Rail SD40-2s. With my BCR SD40-2s, I was able to pay PWRS for the first one when it was due to be released 3 years ago. So, when the two of them eventually became available a month ago, the recent bill was for the second one 'only'.

I drive around in a car that is 20+ years old. The truth is that if I were like a normal person and updated it every 5 years, I would be spending far more money than I do on my N scale hobby.

It's all "Train Waiting's" fault, my father in law was never quite sure whether I went to their house to see his daughter or drink his McEwans!  :pint: that was over 40 years ago  :'(



to add to my collection of beer themed wagons

Lovely detail on the end of the S&N tank

Latest addition is SWT 73109, it was an EBay purchase, listed as buffer missing, coupler missing and shell loose.

The shell just needed a little extra help clipping into the frame and now sits as it should, the buffers I need to source new ones (pretty sure I have other engines that need some although I donít know what sizes any of them take), the coupler should be an easy fix as it looks like the hook piece has just gone missing (the spring is there and no signs of broken plastic)

Support crowdfunding - itís the way forward

Revolutions class 321 needs your help, letís make it happen.

There is a nice video of SWT 73109 on YouTube. In a rather different livery though!

There was quite a bit of money leaving the Trainfish account last week.

Starting with these 2 little fellas. 2 new and 1 second hand.



Then there was a 12-car formation on the left of this picture.


Here it is again running past its older brother.



And finally this 'little' fella. I don't have an O gauge layout but I liked this and just had to buy it. The one at the front is for comparison only, I've had that one ages.

Postie dropped another package off this morning, 90019 Penny Black in RES livery, will go perfectly with the Mk3s dropped off earlier this week or the Pretendolino thatís been needing something to provide power.

I wish the tooling was updated as compared to todayís standards it is very dated, but I have a soft spot for the AC traction so it will make do.

I totally agree re the 90 (glad you got one though).

I have said this afternoon on the Facebook group that Bachmannís new tool 00 version had an EP on display at Warley, can only hope it gets shrunk soon!
