Each and every one of those loco's is a bargain, the 0-8-0's are the best of the bunch - smooth, powerful and trundle round a 9" curve like it isn't there. Detail is a bit basic, but even the manufacturer suggests you should detail and weather it... could you imagine Farish or Dapol saying that ? 

Highly recommended !  :thumbsup:
If it's got rails... you have my full, undivided attention - Steam, diesel and electric, 'tis all good !

For most UM I renumber (or ask Colin for un-numbered ones) I also add vac pipes, lamp irons and in some cases remove the coupling rods and file to slim them down a bit. I've now got some SR head code discs awaiting painting  I don't normally go as far as handrails though.

The 0395 has the same tender as the T9 and 700 which are Drummond type, so a few tweaks needed there, not a perfect Adams one, but recognisable.

For the T9 I asked for a loco in primer as I intended a major hack with a milling machine and Colin obliged giving a slight reduction even. I also use his tender drives to power some kit and scratch built locos.

I saw some UM locos in action at TINGS and was impressed by how well they ran.  I'd like to add a Union Mills engine to my collection but my main interest is BR Western Region.  Maybe I could sneak in a 2P or 7F?

Does anyone know if it is easy/possible to fit Dapol magnetic couplings to these locos?

Keep a lookout for a non runner GWR 4-6-0 with dead motor or split gears, a PD Marsh  kit and a UM tender drive, strip the Farish motor off leaving just the chassis to put under the Marsh loco body kit, put the UM tender drive into the Marsh tender body. Marsh do a few  GWR loco kits

Moguls, Grange, Manor, Star and County

http://www.pdmarshmodels.com/product_list.php?gauge=%27N%27&cat2=%2710%27

Alternatively retain the Farish loco body and just get a P D Marsh tender 3,500 or 4,000 gallon to suit the loco and fit the UM drive. You probably need to use the Farish tender underframe/axle boxes as the P D Marsh body expects to fit on a Farish tender chassis. pick up the electrical feed from the wheels on the same side of the loco as the tender has tyres.

Reason for using the Marsh kit tender is for the weight, you may be  able to fit it in the Farish tender body, but pulling power would be reduced

To reduce friction on the loco wheels to a minimum remove the now unused pick ups.

???????????

Acording to Bradley in "The Drummond Greyhounds of the LSWR" (Page 89) Bournemouth shed between 1925 and 1930 rostered T9s for cross country turns to GWR territory via Reading "this regularly took one of Bournemouth's engines as far north as Birmingham Show Hill with loads between 8 and 11 bogie coaches" On Saturday July 28 1926 288 had the main 10 coach train, followed by 118 with a further 7 coaches of GWR stock. Also  for some years 285 713/27/9 daily worked between Salisbury and Bristol,  and up to WW2 T9s frequently took Excursions to Weston Super Mud.

That I didn't know about - but the case I was referring to was in BR days. I didn't know it occurred pre BR and to timetable.

I didn't realise they are metal die cast models, good value. Their advert in the Railway Modeller magazine advertises 2 of them on page 52a. I think you can only buy them by phone though.

I think I might get one 1 of these days.

I bought mine by phone , sent a cheque. very straightforward and quick service, I think you can also  do it
by credit card, proprietor is most friendly and efficient. You can't have too many UM locos!
