That Minitrix 9F looks really nice, @railsquid.

Might not be a perfect scale model of an actual 9F, but as a nicely made, and clearly effective, model train, it's a real gem. I keep thinking about buying one. I've got two Dapol 9Fs and they're splendid to look at, but they're noisy and delicate, so I tend to leave them in their boxes. Perhaps a Minitrix 9F is what I need when I just want to 'play trains'!

Cheers, NeMo

I'll agree completely with that, NeMo. I have one which I am very fond of, and also a black one converted to a Crosti boilered model by a friend.

In my opinion, the thing that lets them down is the small drivers, but we have to remember that this 9F is basically mounted on a chassis designed for a German locomotive.

Definitely one to watch going round and round for fun and without worrying about it. This example is a little on the noisy side and might just need to make the acquaintance of a teensy amount of lubricating material, but it runs straight with no wobble and handles the trackworkjust  fine, including the curved Tomix points which can be somewhat challenging for certain kettles.

I finally managed to track down a LSWR loco for my matching vans, it's only taken about 3 years, but it was worth the wait, only £15 for a body, swapped onto an existing BR M7 I already had.

I rather like the M7 in that livery.
Looks good
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Acquired a Dapol Swallow HST to replace a Farish one. Veritable bargain at 160 with an extra 2 coaches.

I know its not N gauge, but after a visit with the Domestic Overlord to a local box shifter, saw me walk away with amongst other things a box full of Hornby Dublo track.

140 pieces of track including 21 points and for a cost of around 28p per piece, it may be time to venture into the loft to survey my Dublo stock.

BARGAIN :)
