Next Union Mills Model will be...
« on: May 06, 2015, 07:05:37 pm »
Hi All

I was on the phone to Colin Heard today to obtain a replacement tender drive for my D16/3.

I happened to ask if he had decided what his next loco would be and he advised that it is likely to be a Dean Goods. A great choice of loco and finally a GW type from the UM stable, so I'm thinking a lot of people will be very happy....

Hope this is of interest.

Roy

It is over 10 years since I sold Abersoch and all the ex GWR stock I had to run the Cambrian half of the service.  I would have liked a Dean Goods at that time as they were part of the Cambrian scene into early 50s.  So a few years too late but I am delighted for GWR fans.

Great to hear that an ex GW type is finally likely to come from Union Mills.
Not a type associated with Cornwall but I might be tempted...............
Let's wait and see?? :-\

I will be interested to see how he gets his tender drive to fit with a loco which had such a low sided tender.  Perhaps a "preserved" one on specials down the Port Road to Portpatrick Town?

Don't forget there's already 2 locos in Southern livery plus a S&DJR loco.
However a new UM loco is always good news, no fancy detailing or bag of
add ons just a solid reliable product. All the GWR geezers  will be drooling.

I make it 3, T9, 700 & 0395.

If modelling SR the S&DJR one only counts if you model Templecombe, or the Bournemouth/Poole area; if you model S&DJR then an occasional visit by a T9 is OK for BR days;  during WW2 there were a couple on loan, however they would all have been the narrow cab & watercart tender series.

OOAARR, cider must be scrumpy though, plenty of body in it, - if enough rats don't fall in the vat they chuck in a side of beef!

Ha ha, you guys are really bringing back memories.... a young Bealman  spent his 21st birthday on a camping holiday with his mates in Cheddar, on srcumpi,  thank you very much. Mix with Guiness  and it was, of course, a mess.

Anyway, off topic.  ;)
