Now that they have been around for a while has anyone any experience of running teh Dean Goods. Thinking of getting one as it would be ideal for my proposed GWR branch line. I know it got a ggod review when launched but haven't actually seens one in use anywhere.

I'm very happy with mine. I've also ordered a Dukedog.

You will be able to see mine running on Southbridge but sadly that won't be until the Birchington show at the end of November.

I've only test run mine so far due to my in-limbo layout, but there was one running on one of the smaller layouts at TINGS pulling a fairly decent goods train (it had also been detailed with a crew).

What are they like for slow running ?? - my older U/Mills loco's do not run all that slow - I have a small shunting/industrial layout that does not suit the unrealistic low end speeds of the loco's for this layout - otherwise the loco's are great - reliable - and they always look good on the layout - I am a bit spoilt by the "sleeper to sleeper" slow running of my Kato and Microace steamers !

They are now fitted with a different motor with better slow running capabilities and a lower "top speed".

Having been following the thread on fitting Mashima motors to replace the Union Mills originals that news that the Dean Goods has a new type motor has come at a good time. Must get an order for one, very tempted by the Dukedog too when it appears.

"previously logging in as buxton" Many thanks for slow running info - have tried fitting Mashima motors in my old UM's -works okay and better slow running but this sort of "engineering" is getting a bit too much for my 79 year old fingers !!!

Thought I might post a brief video of my own UM Dean Goods passing through Trepol Bay (North Cornwall) at the head of a GW Demonstration Goods Train.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

The Dean does seem to run very nicely.  I may have to invest in one for the times when I want to set a 1940s or '50s scene.
