Very nice, those bethgons are really nice, but a full rake will be very very expensive!!( 110 cars plus depending on where in the country)

Yep, 3 boxes of eight at 110 a box, not good for the wallet but hopefully they will look pretty good once they are running  :D

In an earlier post, I mentioned that 'VRC Hobbies' had some decent prices on twin pack USA locomotives -

Ten days after placing my order for two 'Burlington Northern' engines - look what arrived today -



The picture does not do them justice due to the artificial light. I have brought them to work to test but could not bring my test track as I think somebody might have said something if I had set up a 4' x 2' board!  :). I have tried the loco's on my rolling road and I have to say that they are very smooth and quiet runners. They are DCC Ready and, for 103 including post, I think I got a good deal. As you may be able to tell from the photo', the handrails have come adrift in a couple of places, but nothing that a spot of glue, (and magnifier), will not sort out.   :thumbsup:

Hi David

Those Arnold U25C locos are a mighty fine deal. My friend has one (Northern Pacific) and I noted how smoothly and quietly it ran and how good it looked. Unfortunately, I'm already stretching rule 1 to breaking point and the road names available won't fit for me.

I'm wondering about your layout and whether you have a thread for it? I remember your previous layout which was UK outline, but you have mentioned several times on recent posts that you have US locos as well as at least two Japanese coaches. I have North American stock mainly with a bit of UK as well, but the Japanese equipment shown by railsquid and others looks pretty good and I'm tempted.

I have to admit I am very pleased with the engines - and VCR Hobbies. I have bought a couple of engines from them in the past and never had a problem.
I have not got round to starting a thread for the latest layout, even though the first piece of wood was cut in January 2016!  :-[ mainly/partly, because, although I always had a basic idea for the layout, I keep changing aspects and, as we do, I do a bit, then a couple of weeks later think that it would look better if ..................... Plus, I am using Kato Unitrack for the new layout and if it has one drawback, Unitrack makes it so easy to change ones mind about a curve or the position of a point  :). However, the new layout is totally Rule 1, with mainly Diesel stock, but from the early days up to the present.  Having said that, because I keep getting tempted, (who allowed access to eBay  :doh:), I have over the last 12 months or so, bought some US and Japanese stock, if only because, if the mood takes me, I can have a day or two running just the US or Japanese stock. I promise I will not look at European stuff ...... honest!  :worried: There will also be a tramway! However, I am getting off the thread subject here, so maybe it is time I started a thread, as some of the layout is now fixed and I have just finished a tunnel that has 2 rail tracks and a roadway, (for the Faller bit), and is nearly 3 foot long!  :goggleeyes:

The train looks super behind the 'Schools', Alex.

Birthday greetings!

All my buys from the  Lancashire & Yorkshire DCC MRG - MRX 2018 Model Rail Exhibition today.

The first is a Minitrix N gauge BR MK1 Maroon 1st class I think it's FO (not sure if it should have any more suffix or prefix)


Next is a rake of lovely little wagons, Sportman chewing gum is Graham Farish UK, Tate n Lyle is Lima, ICI Salt is Peco, Gibbs SR is Graham Farish UK.

The 5 plank wagon is Graham Farish UK, The Tarmacadam 7 plank is Bachmann, The mineral wagon is Graham Farish Made in china.



The next two are unpainted but not stricktly from the exhibition, they just arrived in the post that's all from an N Gauge trading group seller.


I got some nifty tweezers too and some liquid poly for the final photo is...

A Ratio Coaling Stage in 00 for my shunting layout, bargain price too.

The Minitrix coach is a Mk1 CK. They went a bit overboard on the non-1st Class lining.
