I've still got my TPM/Lifelike ones. I still think the body detail on them is a little better and the running behaviour is vastly superior with the enormously heavy Lifelike chassis under it.

Hello,

The Class 60 is my favourite diesel loco and I also believe the best diesel Farish produce. 
Flounder.

It is a great model. I'd find it hard to say which is the best Farish diesel but their Warship, class 24 and DP1 are probably my favourites.

Yep, the Farish moulding has a couple of errors on it and the TPM is a little more accurate. But not so sure about the Lifelike chassis (although my TPM is on an old Farish chassis :worried:).

I built the TPM kit, it was a really easy build and the only thing I couldn't do was install glazing. when I rebuilt the farish chassis it didn't work properly for some reason but i was only a beginner. I'd never built a kit before.
I think the TPM has the edge over the farish model slightly in detail and nose shape.

I do wonder if Dapol will produce a 60 one day, to compete with the Farish model and complete their set of heavy freight diesels.
Cheers

That rather depends upon the decoder type, loco condition, livery, box, seller and a few more things !

Hi Tim,

I'm not trying to tell my grandmother how to suck eggs but my experience of e-bay is to decide what you want to bid in advance, if it goes over this amount then fine, forget it, but if not, then bid the maximum you are willing to pay (what you've previously decided) with about 5 seconds left on the listing.

Just for the record, most of today was spent correcting track related issues that kept derailing my class 67.

Various little issues like this have sprung up this week, but throughout it all, my example of "Sir Charles" just rumbles on. Its extra weight compared to most locos means it treats imperfections with quiet dignity.

Also, reading this thread made me remember I really should fit the name plates...  :-[

hi Tim  :wave:

for the nameplates on my locos i have used satin varnish
it seems to work well as none of the plates on my locos or my dads 009 locos have come adrift
and if some does come over the edge it is a lot less visible
but it is better not to use too much and make sure you get the plate very close to the correct position first time

dave  :thumbsup:
