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

Finally - finally - after work trips abroad, deadlines, general life manic-ness and brouhaha, I have been able to get back to my workbench...!

My "to do" list is a long one, but here's just some of what's current:



Sooooo nearly done - "Hood" is now nearly fully lined, then just awaiting final varnish and putting back together...







Princess - loco finished, tender lining almost complete:






Lining the other side of the D11 - this is going to be lovely when it's done, but it's been a fiddle!!






A trio of Warships mid decal-ing:






The paint shop - a dock tank, a Hall, a Black Five, a 9F and a couple of pugs...:





So much more on the go besides - more pics to follow when it's photo-worthy! :)

Blimey bloke, judging by the locos that've just hit EBay you must have an empty workshop.

I'll have to find something else to send you.

 ;D

Happiness is a completed loco (two, in fact)!



Jubilee "Hood", re-assembled and nameplates added:







And the Princess (although that rear pony truck could do with a lick of paint, I think):





More as they file across the workbench! :)
