If not, black doesn't sound a diffficult livery and is probably something you could easily do yourself.

He does, it was on his last list, give him a ring and see if he still has one in stock.

He does the T9 in BR Black, but without the lining though.  Saving up for one myself

Thanks for highlighting this thread, Mr B. It's one I hadn't spotted before, and it's lovely to see the photos of UM locos.

Bumping for those interested (me, at least) in learning more about British N Gauge. These sound very interesting to me, as I'm not a huge rivet-counter, and just want my loco to run and pull.

So these all come DC and upgrading is up to the individual?

Spend as little as possible on what you need so you can spend as much as possible on what you want.

Union Mills locos are held in high regard by most of the British N gauge community. Detailing is basic but they perform very well - plus they have models of prototypes you can't get anywhere else.

They are brilliant little loco's and with a little bit of detailing like crews, lamps, some real coal in the tender and a bit of weathering they look even better. They can also be upgraded to DCC. There was an article in the N Gauge Society Journal last about how to convert them and it looked reasonably straightforward.

Great photos! Very clear and sharp.

I have a 700 myself, in SR black, and it's a lovely mover, especially at slow speed. The Adams is on my wish list, and both will gain some additional detail in time.

One point I notice in the photos af the UM T9 in SR green is that there is no lining, also the colour looks like the lighter shade used on coaches, or some locos turned out by Ashford. (T9s being ex LSWR were normally overhauled at Eastleigh)

Lining should be a 3" black border on outer edges with a half inch white line inside it. See the pic in my sig below.

The only reason I can see for the finish on the UM loco is an early wartime livery before it was plain black.

Boiler bands were white/black/white the Fox LNER lining is OK for that the rest is DIY

I think it's more of a case that UM doesn't add lining.

Repainting the entire body in a more accurate Maunsell Green should be no real problem, but I might have to wait for black/white lining to become available for everything but the boiler bands. I don't fancy painting that!
