You're making me consider trading in my new Royal Scot for another Jubilee (technically the RS is the wrong livery as it's in Crimson, as preserved)
I also have two black 5's with the same running number, to re-number or trade in...

Well my latest Evilbay sourced Jubilee has finally been unpacked with the help of the girls, its a good job I don't collect Mint boxed examples

On closer inspection the loco seems to be as described on the listing, un-run as the wheels are spotless

All I need to decide now is which Jubilee I will change here into, and if I keep the Crimson livery or repaint her into Post War lined black???  :confused2: :confused2: :confused2: :confused2:

Well a little more time was spent on my stock take tonight, and the Duchess fleet has increased by 1 locomotive I sort of forgot I had.

I could sort of remember buying a bargain black one a while ago but I was sure I repainted it and turned it into a Semi version in post war black, apparently not though.

The question is what to do with her? Should I take the easy option and just paint her in unlined wartime black? I guess though I should look at the other LMS pacific type and build a Princess? I mean can you actually have too many Pacifics?

I'd keep the Jubilee in crimson personally Paul. It is a lovely livery (yes, I really just said that!) and Farish applies it very well.  :)

It is a lovely livery. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that it is almost a as good as apple green, garter blue, silver, Maunsell green, Prussian blue, and varnished teak! :)

No I'm fine and not talking broken biscuits. In a way, I wish I was as I'd be rich selling them to various cheesecake manufacturers!  :smiley-laughing:

Hmmmm, cheesecake!  :D :D

Dorsetmike has the right idea about colour (if being slightly off the rails regarding the company!  :P ). Still prewar Southern liveries suited their locomotives very well - I'm not sold on the later yellow lining though...

I don't know how I managed to do it this weekend but I seemed to have found some modelling time, and managed to make a little progress on some of my list of projects.

I have a few GEM Fowler tender kits in stock which I have had for more years than I care to remember, originally I thought that I would use them on my 4F fleet but I have never got round to it. One by one I have been using them on various other projects so now I have more 4Fs than I have tenders in stock.

Anyway today I have nearly completed one, which will be towed around by a PRINCESS. Despite them not really being one of my favourite LMS loco's (a little to GWR looking to my eyes) I thought at some point I better add one to my fleet. Being the crafty little bugger that I am, I have been managing to get the odd construction period in without the Domestic Overlord and this is the result so far.

Yes I know there is still a hell of a lot of work still to do, but my initial test fit over one of the Std 4 chassis I have in stock is promising. I know the wheelbase and wheels are not exactly right, but I am not trying to build a scale model, more a model than can take up some of the passenger duties on Foster Street if I ever take it to another exhibition, or for use on my next proper layout. Unlike my Duchess collection, she will remain the only member of the class in my collection.

As the Domestic Overlord, had no idea of my secret modelling sessions, I thought I would become a true master of secrets and try to make a little more progress on a second project. I have a liking for dirty freight engines, and in the past I have constructed a pair of 7F's which I kind of like to see plodding around the layout pulling various freight trains.

A few months ago I managed to source an eight coupled chassis to initially go under a kit for a round firebox G2, but to cut a long story short its no good, so what to do with it? Taking my favourite easy route out I decided to construct another 7F, but to try and add some interest I thought a "water heater" variant would be a good idea.

So as with the Princess there is a long way to go but its progress in trying to reduce the number of projects on the workbench of DOOM.

So with progress like this its a bit like a fairy tale, with me of course like the poor downtrodden "Buttons" type character, but with locomotives like these, its more like Beauty buggered of and left me with two beasts :)
