Had me eye on acquiring one since they came out. They must be good performers. Certainly nice and smooth in the video!  :thumbsup:

Great video and superb layout.
Really good to see trains running at sensible speeds.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

What an enjoyable film!

A lovely layout and one which manages to achieve a sense of making a journey.

Seeing these particularly smooth-running diesels is very tempting (at present it's all-steam, apart from the GWR railcars, on my layout).

Thank you and best wishes.

John

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.

What a smashing film of your handiwork :claphappy:
It's great to see all the little gizmos working - points, uncoupling and signals.
Really brings everything to life.
10/10

Thanks Chris for a very entertaining video. I like watching trains roll by (like Little Aller Junction,) but this held my attention all the way through - lots of shunting, running round, scenic detail, to entertain the eye. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

So was I! I compared the speeds of all my locos and found one that went slightly faster than the 22 to put on the front. It went round very well but I don't think I will try it at an exhibition; all those trucks would take a lot of re-railing.

Another excellent film.  Thank you very much indeed.
 
You are continuing to make me take notice of diesel locomotives!

Am I the only person to think, in 1:148 scale at least, that the yellow panel on the NBLs looks more attractive than the all-over green front on the 'Warship'?

Thanks again and all best wishes.

@Train Waiting
Only 12% of my diesel fleet do not carry the small warning panel. 4 carry speed whiskers, 1 is my Blue Pullman and the small remainder have no warning panel.

I prefer yellow panels too. The Warship I used was purely based on best speed match. It's useful to have one without a yellow panel as this fits better with a full rake of chocolate and cream coaches. By the time yellow panels were coming in (1962) the chocolate and cream sets were being deliberately split up because they were too "Great Western"

Another video, this time dating back to about 1960 when Steam was still the main motive power and the new fangled diesels were only just starting to appear. I've used a filter to give it a vintage film feel.
