Just bought a Class 60 Ben Nevis Railfreight Metals, as new looks mint complete with DCC chip fitted at 63, a beautiful model and excellent runner. May have to look for another Class 60, they are well detailed.
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

So after seeing one available new for 53 at collets I decided to buy "Ben Nevis." I was a little apprehensive if the loco would run aswell as everyone says as it never looked quite right for me. Anyways, once she arrived and was tested I was most impressed and she has become one of my favourait models. The detail and performance is superb! Get them whilst they are still cheap folks!

Just a quick question regarding the directional lighting...  I have 4 Class 60's; The kernow limited edition in pseudo GWR Green livery which is spot on and directional lighting functions correctly.  The most recent purchase Adam Smith also works correctly.  The other two are the mainline blue one bought as a bargain from Kernow a good few years ago and also the Buffers of Axminster limited edition (Alexander Graham Bell) bought from them at a reduced rate (ironically people were paying way over the odds for this model on ebay around the time!).  When I purchased these two all my railway stuff was boxed up due to a pending house move and I was unable to easily test them.  I have since had them out on a temporary test circuit and at one end on each the head light does not illuminate.  However when the bodies are removed the white light is working on both ends of each when running in the appropriate direction.  It would appear that there is an issue with the built in light feed from the led to the appropriate headlamp in the cab interior moulding or the led is simply not lining up with that light feed.  Has anybody else experienced this and is there a simple cure?  Are the cab interior mouldings removable?  I've not been able to remove them, but am not brave enough to exert to much pressure in fear of causing damage.  Both are now conveniently outside of their respective warranty periods due to the length of time that my stuff has been in storage.
