It's a great loco. Looks good in its fictional livery too!

Would anyone having a J series (pref a J27, but any J :)) UM in LNER livery post a picture, please ?

I'm interested in buying one, but would like to see how he does them ...

No chance - he does not do anything with complex outside valve gear.

Cheers,
Alan

Below are some pictures of my T9 that arrived a few weeks ago. I love it and will make a short video at some point of it running on my layout :)

Shortly after receiving it I phoned Mr Heard regarding the type of oil / frequency of oiling to keep it in good running order and I have to say he was enormously friendly and helpful - well over-and-above the level of 'customer support' you are used to from most suppliers.   















I really don't mind about the lack of detail in comparison to more recent offerings from the big manufacturers. The model captures the essence of the original and from what I've read it will give me years of reliable and robust service. And I can always add detailing myself in the future if I want to.

Thank you Agrippa, the coaches are the Farish generics.

I'm looking forward to the release of the new N gauge Maunsell's (can't remember when they're due).

But Maunsell's stock was introduced from 1926, so I'm sure for many years later there was still a large proportion of ex LSWR carriages in service - at some point I'd like to model examples of these too :)

She looks a beauty Southernboy and fits right in on your layout. Thanks for the pics  :thumbsup: I know I am going to have to get a Union Mills but with a Deltic, a 50, a 4mt tank and a Western on pre-order it will just have to wait.

I couldn't give a hoot about super detail, from what I have heard Union Mills locos run great and that is 10 times more important, a lovely little T9 and it looks A1  :thumbsup:
Keep on Smiling

As the recent models such as the Farish WD and 5MT show there is absolutely no reason why we cannot have both.

However I too have a soft spot for UM locos, have about 10, got my first in about 1997. Without too much work they can be made to look even more presentable. In particular,shortening the wire improves the look in the cab area.

I recently changed a J39's identity to represent Carlisle Canal's 64877, often used on the Langholm Branch train.

A not very good pic in my Media Folder.
