They look beautiful Paul. So you're gonna be looking for some paw operated controllers soon...
 :)
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Well 2 Terriers have been added to the fleet, thankfully they are not of the SR variety. Introducing Pickle and Pudding


Will you be repainting them maroon?

Managed to get one of these finally the other day, £70 on ebay. Been looking for a while, and the last one I saw was at an exhibition for over £80 and it had a missing coupling. This one is mint :)

Added 2 more class 86s to the growing fleet, 86 631 (out of service pending repairs, another one), and 86 637 in the newer freightliner livery.

631 has a messed up PCB and the lighting board with the white connectors have both been removed.

637 runs, the lights all work although it seems a little hesitant when power first applied, will clean up the wheels and contacts to see if it helps, also needs replacement buffers.





Support crowdfunding - it’s the way forward

Revolutions class 321 needs your help, let’s make it happen.

I treated myself to a few things at TINGS yesterday.

Two Dapol Network Rail wagons (2 for £30 on the Dapol stand) and a Graham Farish 30 Ton Bogie Bolster wagon in Departmental red (£15, second hadn from Cheltenham Model Centre).


Three more tank wagons, I assume these would look ok for trains running in the 1960s?


The N gauge Society stand had some limited edition TTA wagons by Graham Farish, I'm a bit of a sucker for the TTA.


For some time I've been after an N Gauge version for LMS 6115 Scots Guardsman, I have an OO model of that engine inherited from a late friend.  I braved the cruch at Anorack's Anonymous and found this example for a very reasonable £69.



Little and large together.

Been to TINGS.
I've got a touch of the blues at the moment.

Here's my latest courtesy of Atso of this parish.



A fantastic job done, based around his superb 3D print.

When did the N Gauge Society limited edition TTA tanker come out as I have seen no mention of this model?

Stealth purchase:



It would have been rude not to, while visiting the NGS stand.

(Not yet even announced on the website, apparently)

Those are the donor wagons provided in the NGS kit for the TTA chlorine, molasses and sulphuric acid tanks that has been available for some time. As such, I don't think they are new wagons being produced and are probably surplus stock. I always thought they would make good bitumen tanks without too much effort required.

That makes sense. The date inside the box is 101105, and they are labelled as Blue Riband, which I thought a little strange.
