I have just completed the initial running in of my D9007 and it is a real beauty - haulage testing to be done later but I suspect it will walk away with a prototypical 12 coach train just like DP1 did.
I put my existing Farish Deltic alongside it and was quickly aware of how horrifyingly crude it looked against the new one - well done Graham Farish for another outstanding diesel loco, How about retooling the class 40 next?

Just been running Pinza round with 12 x Mk1's on the back (it's all I had to hand without unpacking loads of stuff) - no problems :thumbsup:

9 BR mk1 & 12 dapol Gresleys and still no observable slip from a standing start! - the most I run on the club's modular layout is usually 12 and 8 on my own - outstanding!!

Hailstone - was that the max it would run with, or had you run out of coaches ?  :D

Pretty good, but have had one of My Farish B1s pull 22 coaches no problem!

Do we not have a "what's your longest coach rake" thread? Surely there must be one! I'm out for now ... my layout's probably shorter than Hailstone's 20 coach rake (and it's only end to end) so I'll have to wait until my 36ft + kato ledge layout  :D

No shortage of coaches guys, I have plenty more, but I couldn't see the point in going any further

Due to being on holiday abroad I am behind the curve with my review of my new BR blue class 55.

I have run it in and chipped it and must say I am delighted with this loco.

It pulls a rake of 7 Mk 1s with ease and positively glides through points, a triple point and double slips with ease.

I really like the detailing. It's been a bit of a wait for this loco, but hats off to Bachmann, a success on the lines of the Deltic prototype (for me that's excellent).  :beers:

I picked up my D9002 at the Wigan show on my recent latest UK adventure. Here it is back in Australia on the Beal & Castle Eden:

I have problems with many opinions expressed in the NGS journal, but I do agree with the reviewer of this loco in respect to the day-glo colouring along the bottom. It's way too bright. Here it is alongside the old Poole version (which, oddly enough, I also purchased in England during a trip in 1990):

The day-glo nature of the latest version is very evident when compared to the old model. Personally, I think the old model doesn't hold up too badly, even when alongside the newer version, as it is here!

A helicopter shot shows the roof details and the slight length discrepancy:

To me, the main improvements are the lighting and running quality, although my old Argyle & Sutherland Highlander (isn't that a great name?) was a smooth runner in it's day. Unfortunately it's suffering from some disease at the moment - probably the old split gear thing. Of course, the new one is DCC ready if you're into that sort of stuff.

Anyway, I am exceptionally pleased with it. Five stars from me.
