Is the Arnold 2-8-2 the version with a smoke unit fitted?  They're fun but you need to run them quite fast to get the unit to work.

It is! I don't have any smoke generating oil so I can't play with it, sadly... ;)

This one (and in fact most of this lot) will be up for sale fairly soon. Now they're fixed they need new and appreciative homes (I might keep one or two, though!).

Chris, the 4-4-0 is a little belter - good condition and runs really well - it will also be up for sale... :)

The Minitrix dock tank will fit an ABS Beaver GWR 1366  and with that white metal body it'll pull anything.
(assuming you can find the kit)

...after a few happy hours of tinkering, cleaning and fettling, ten of them are running like new...

A couple of hours? :o I tinker with locos for a couple of years and still can't get them working smoothly!

Ah yes, but you are not 'The Great One'.

All hail Ozymandia, all hail Ozymandia...

Cracking work Gideon, like others have said, good to see your updates flowing again and that Britannia looks superb!

It is of course the ex M7 that is evolving into a new guise that catches my eye, that is coming along a treat
