Yeah, those 37s are just beautiful. I want them all. I have children, though.  :)

The plan...is coming.  :D It's in my head and now I just have to be brave enough to start the wood work.

Spend as little as possible on what you need so you can spend as much as possible on what you want.

I think the 37 is the best looking UK diesel shapewise. My one and only UK diesel is Pinza (class 55) which I agree looks gorgeous in its livery. Out of the box, Pinza #1 ran beautifully until it suddenly stopped forever after 1/2 hour of running in. Pinza #2, its replacement, also runs beautifully and there are no problems on the horizon with it.

Like you, I'm not at all worried about running UK equipment on my dominantly North American layout. Looking forward to seeing your stuff in action.

I too fell prey to the recent discounts! I wanted to buy so much more, as is this was too much. Currently running in the Dutch livery Class 37...wow...so good looking and is smooth and quiet. So far, so good!

The Class 55 is gorgeous. Haven't run it in, but can't wait.

The Bachmann NW2s below are all slightly older purchases. DCC fitted, they are going to be a part of my first step into repainting. I've had decals of a local switching company made. The local company has three 1939 former Navy NW2s in service. The Southern Switching Company. I plan to do a wacky split-scene where about 1/3 or 1/4 of the layout will be a modern local scene, and then I want to segue the rest of layout into a British Countryside scene, heavily employing Rule 1. Since I didn't grow up in the UK, but am simply fascinated with it, I decided to run what looks cool on a given day.

















Some very nice locos and i love the 37.   :thumbsup:

Pinza.

Thought it would be rude not to at only 67.50, brand spanking new from Rails.


Got mine from Hattons for less, new has well, they did me a deal because of what i had bought of them.

Some really great prices at the moment if you are prepared to look.     :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Finally got some DJM Mermaid ballast wagons.  They are superb but really benefit from different couplings as this picture should illustrate (same wagons but straight out of the box).



Now fitted with shorter couplings (and one Dapol Easi-Shunt).

Well a chance visit to a local "box shifter" resulted in me walking away with these for 6 each.

All I have to do now is find the box with the other dozen or so I have and get them weathered :)

That's a really nice scene you've modelled there, @paulprice. We don't see a lot of nicely done  steam-era layouts, and when they're done, they're more often than not quaint branch lines. Seeing something a bit more gritty makes a pleasant change. Do you have some more photos of your layout? On a thread of its own maybe?

Cheers, NeMo

Another 'Pinza' bargain... and in common with everyone else, photo'd on unitrack ...




and a Dutch liveried 37 to go with it...





Went on a trip to Peterborough on Saturday. I left there 25 years ago and never went back but thought trains4u would be worth a visit if only because they're the only vendor I've found with supplies of Javis N scale hedges. Browsing their second hand cabinets I found this for the princely sum of 5.

My favourite Tokyo basement purveyor of overseas 2nd hand N gauge has recently re-evaluated some of its overpriced stock, and this very battered pantograph-less and immobile Dapol 86 was had for a tenner or so...

It will serve as a test bed for Dapol loco restoration techniques, or at worst as a parts donor.
