'Fraid I've got to agree with CaptainElectra - this class 86 was also my latest purchase and the livery is superb. Far, far better than dull old grass stain green;

Must admit, that is a lovely looking model, even though it ain't green.... :P

It coincides with the worrying news that the real 86401 is to be sold, as its owner, ETL, is pulling out of main line operations due to lack of work for 86101 and 87002. Really hope it stays in one piece in the UK.

A lovely model and livery, I like watching videos of these locos from back in the 1990s and am very impressed at the cracking speed they go at.
Keep on Smiling

Sounds like it is you who is green, 'cos it's never been painted such a dull colour  :P  :D

In fairness, although 86401 was never green, a few of its classmates are...

Having only had this delivered from Gaugemaster last week, thought it was about time that I started posting some pics here!

This is my latest purchase - made by Minitrix, it is an East German DR V200 -



These locos were originally made in the USSR and were the M62 - and, like everything else in the Communist Bloc, were sold to other Communist countries.

I bought this as I want to eventually get it resprayed as a PKP (Polish State Railways) class ST44 - a very popular heavy freight diesel loco, which is still in use in Poland today, and still goes by the nickname of 'Gagarin'! I will try and find a pic of what I eventually want it to look like and will post it here soon!

Edit - just found a link that I posted elsewhere - this is what I would like this loco to look like eventually!

All lovely looking models, folks. I particularly like the green one - as I insist on insisting, the ONLY colour for a diesel!!!  :D

Can't really have green diesels without black or maroon ones though 8)

Yeah, Ok EP - especially black ones (and more so if they are numbered 1000). But go for it, Paul B -

My Fleet is now up to 3 thanks to the purchase of 2 new engines from a fellow forum member.  I guess I should get some more track laid. ;)
