From time to time, strange things turn up in the yard at Steinheim am Main. But then again, when it has to double up as Peterhampton Junction, perhaps it's to be expected. Having discovered that SR "Bogie B" vans lasted in traffic until the mid 1980's, it was inevitable that one would join the already substantial parcels fleet. And surely any layout with Southern Region leanings would be incomplete without a class 73...

Just returned from a local exhibition with this little bundle.



Star of the show for me is this little fella;



I’ve wanted one since I started thinking about building a layout so safe to say I am “well chuffed”!  :D

Arriving at the last week, i bought this Beauty from Rails of Sheffield,
it need five days from Britain to Germany. Today i fit a Kühn 045 DCC Decoder in it.
She runs very smooth, no noise and with the matt varnish weathering outfit she looks very elegant.




This is the first photo i have uploaded here.

That Royal Scot looks good Michael. :thumbsup:

I model Swiss railways, and buy most from German retailers. The postal time is usually about the same - 4 or 5 days, cost of postage varies from €3.90 to €14.99, depending on order values. How do Rails compare?

I do not normally post in this thread, but I had to show my latest purchase, which arrived from the Netherlands today. It is a Kato Class 66 in the livery of Opel/GM, second hand and DCC ready. A nice looking engine which runs superb. From what I can find out, the engine was released in 2008 and then withdrawn. I am very pleased with the purchase, as I did not know this version existed until last week and it can now haul my two Opel/GM wagons, (hence the request for more under 'Wanted'!). One very happy ' n gauger'.  :thumbsup:

Probably should be posted under show your latest continental purchase?    I do like the Kato 66s, very smooth and reliable. The scale difference compared to Farish and Dapol is very evident!

 :sorrysign: no :greatpicturessign: but 68s arrived today - wow all round and feel and run the part.
Packaging includes a 26 page booklet - good read and DCC information really useful. 
like the real thing big, powerful, smooth and great beasts !!  However unlike the real thing quiet. - DCC sound required !!

The feel quality and build quality puts paid to old school era at Dapol.

When Colin Heard released the Dean Goods, I bought a green Great Western 2576 and mentioned to Colin that it was a shame he had settled on BR black for the 2516 as it had been allocated to Carmarthen before the war and would have run on my Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line.
Today the postman brought a package from the IoM containing a Great Western 2516!  :claphappy: :bounce: :claphappy:

How's that for personal service!

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

A lucky day for me today, someone I know offered me a job lot of N gauge bits from a layout that has been broken up & I got the lot for a very good price. Sadly some things are broken or damaged as they were all just chucked in a box but some can be repaired hopefully, if not will be useful for something. No locos but a few good wagons & buildings & loads of detailing bits of use for my layout build.  :claphappy:

Will be sorting through it all to see what I need/don't need soon  :)

Yeah, I bought the lot as it was cheap & there were some useful bits in there I will need for the layout. The wagons are all in good condition & fit in the era I'm modelling & some of the buildings I will use on the layout. Whatever's left that I don't need can always go in the spares box or be sold/passed on to someone. I don't often come across bargain job lots like this.
