Hi Guys
             Interesting thing I've just noticed reading through this thread, Page 1 Reply 10, Hurricane Titch shows Foxhound in Maroon with SYP, a google search picks up Hattons thread wich says the same but----N Gauge Resource says FYE!!  so I'd like to ask are the other Maroon loco's right on Ngauge Resource, 371-600A Hermes--603 Druid--603A Magpie all FYE??

Chris

Well spotted Chris.. I have corrected now - think i got trigger happy when I split out the FYE from SYP... I a sure there are other errors.. do need to run another check against the locos.

Regards

Tony

My Warship fetish continues I'm afraid.

I will have to stop, but 3 came along at the right price, which included 1 with dcc fitted sound too.

Mercig will get all 3 as I really fancy a totally distressed and dirty maroon full yellow end, be blue small yellow end and maybe I'll let Ian indulge himself with the third.

Seriously though, still a benchmark model, runs like a dream, and I am going to stop now at 14 models. Way too many of them, but soooooooooooo nice! :-)

Hi DJM Dave
                   Noting your modest ? Comment, I would like to ask a couple of questions:- just how many Hydraulics of WR types have you got in total???     and what you gonna do when somebody shrinks a class41 for RTR (nudge nudge)????

Hi Dave
             I wont press the point, coz I know you're busy with a  rather tasty steamer!!  but suffice to say a 41 would be on the top of my wish list to go with the other hydraulics we've got (nudge/wink).   My best wishes for all your endeavours.

Hi Tony,
           I hope you don't think I was having a go at you, I had found a mis-match in my information and I wanted to make alterations if required, once I got answers, I was going to send you a mail from your site in the morning giving you the info.(honest).

One class of loco I like so much I actually did build my own rather than wait for RTR. Not that this baby would stop me getting one if the big Warships did come out in N gauge.  8)

Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Hi Matt
            it never fails to impress every time I see that picture,  however it also reminds me I have a question to ask (when don't I), do you know if there is an illustrated guide to headcodes and the train types they cover for 50's to 60's

Hi Guys
            Does anybody know if there exists on the web or in print,  a list/Chart of type 42/43 Warship Liveries, as I'm particularly in the Green/Maroon Era-------- or any other Hydraulic Loco (I have an excellent list from RMWeb For class 52).  MTIA

Thanks to the instant and wonderful joys of Kato Unitrack I am able to enjoy my two Warships at long last.  I couldn't resist one of each of the blue and green ones in the sale a whle back.  What gorgeous models they are.  So quiet and so cute.  The only thing I am not keen on is the bright white lighting, especially on the headcodes.  I think I may be able to tame that by using some yellow decals on the headcodes - unless anyone has a better idea?

Now I find myself wishing that Farish would make some more maroon ones...
I get a bit delayed in the Waiting Room
