As posted in the happy thread , two ordered for Christmas from my family would have liked one of the B R early crest locos as well but didnt want to push my luck otherwise I might not be getting two maybe a B R one for my birthday if Colin  has got any left in March.
Of course when they arrive I WILL have to test them as soon as I can just in case they dont  work .even though I know they will work testing has to be done before they get hidden and wrapped up till Christmas.

I can see one or two 2251s joining my collection, the picture certainly looks promising. Can't wait to see pictures of them on people's layouts.

Very nice indeed and in this day and age 75 is a very affordable price for what will no doubt be a solid if basic workhorse. Just one plea, can one of the Mods turn the pic through 90 degrees, I'm getting a crick in my neck trying to look at it!!

Very many thanks, NPN, I tried and failed to get the photograph to go this way.

Sorry for any discomfort I caused, Roy.

All the best.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

Unlike most, the great thing about Union Mills is that Colin meets his projected delivery dates!

Thanks for turning the pic Mick. Very nice indeed. It seems pretty clear that the three most recent GW prototypes have proven very popular which is great news for GW/WR modellers. Sadly I have it from the Horse's mouth that there will be no Scottish prototypes on the horizon - I asked not so long ago. I would love a Glen or J35 but it won't happen via Union Mills.

My two Collett Goods locos ordered at twelve oclock midday yesterday arrived 1st class post at half past eleven this morning,  again superb service from Colin how does he do it ? .
They wlli be tested this evening and then unfortunately wrapped up untill Christmas.As usual they look good and even better when Snowwolflair has painted the copper chimney and brass safety dome and whistles and Ive put the vacuum pipe on the front.

 :drool: This is beginning to whet my appetite! 

Does anyone know if these models can run on a Finetrax layout without any problems, please?

I've got the 2P, and 3F, they arrived in this area via the S&DJR. Also got 4 of his ex LSWRs, 0395, 2x700 and a T9, and I've used his tender drives for a few other projects.

As I need to see how the station building will fit before I can shape the next section of scenery, I had to start making it.  Then Colin Heard's latest model arrived, and I had to see how they would look together....
from track level

and side on

Perhaps the proof that there is intelligent life in outer space is that they haven't contacted us.

That "baby castle" looks great.  If I was still into the joint LMR/WR Cambrian scene, I would have one, or more.  And would have had  the Dean goods and Dukedog as well.  But I moved my interests to beyond the northern border some years ago.  So pass on this..
