Overscale lump that it may be, but I just had to try and track down one of these for completeness of the can-motor British Lima fleet!

Not quite complete ;) - there was a large logo 31 246 with a can motor too - rarer I think as that livery wasn't produced with the original runs with the pancake drive.

Cheers,
Alan

Thanks Al.  I confess I'd moved to European N (due to much better quality) long before these came out, so lost track of British N models.

It’s a New Year so that means New Trains, the postie didn’t disappoint today with two reasonable sized boxes, Grampian Voyager in one and (another) Pretendolino in the other, also shown is a Reggie Railways 101 that arrived last week.

I know there was only one Pretendolino in real life but as I like loco-hauled, especially west coast, I have decided a large helping of rule one and we can see what it would have looked like had more rakes been splashed with the paint of the Pretendolino.

Support crowdfunding - it’s the way forward

A small parcel has just been retrieved from my neighbour and this was inside:



This was bought on Ebays recent 20% off day and adds to my Gronk Farm  :-*

Very good service from eBay seller and included free Dapol magnetic couplings as well as the standard ones.

Have you succeeded in breeding Gronks on your farm ?

Well, every time I go to the stock box recently I wonder if there will be one more, and there are two more being watched on eBay  :D

Unfortunately of the three more I like, two are limited / collectors editions and one is rare as the hen’s dentures so commands big cash.

Oh well, no rush as I already have way more than I can justify!

Ta-da!   I now have one to go with the other 31.  Slightly playworn and not boxed, but running ok.  I've yet to find any photographic evidence of this loco in this livery style though? Lima fantasy?


I thought would take longer to track one of these down. I also notice another of the "small logo" can-motor 31s appeared on ebay a day or so ago.  Just like buses; you wait for ages and then 3 come along at (almost) the same time  :D

These beauties, along with a further green one, complete my 'needs' as far as locos go. From now on, I'm on 'wants'  ;)



I've just spent a pleasant evening running in the sound version, and I'm impressed with it, except for the sound, which, let's be honest, doesn't really sound anything like a monster diesel loco.

Never say never, But I don't remember any blue 31s with large logo and certainly not with giant numbers. A Flickr search only brings up 31s in Railfreight Grey with large logo - except for one 31101 https://flic.kr/p/r7CbUM which looks more like a later celebrity 'repaint'

Yes seen "preserved" 31101 with large logo


... and quite large numbers on this one


.. but not the two styles together.  Those on the Lima are massive!  Perhaps they used the tampo prints from the OO model.

A Minitrix Evening Star basks in the midday sunshine:



Obviously not up to to the latest visual standards but runs perfectly out of the box (which it just bounced around around the world in as the box wasn't original and it wasn't properly padded) and is a nice solid little (well big) "layout locomotive"
