Nice, and that sounds like a good price!

One thing worth checking with a noisy Dapol loco with a drive shaft is that the plastic collar that the drive shaft fits into on the tender end is sometimes pushed too far on and fouls the tender body creating noise, just ease it out along the motor shaft a tad and it will quieten down hopefully.

Looks like we have a rat infestation at Nodinson Hills.



Poole era class 25 back from its repair and service, with a class 25 dummy unit to double head.

Managed to find a green Buffet coach that was still in stock, now just to find myself a Green Mk1 CK to go with the rest of my Green Mk1s.

Edit to add:
Have now just noticed that the day the old version arrives at my house, the new version is now on sale...

Another addition to the fleet, Farish Class 66 101, DCC decoder fitted, very quiet runner and brilliant at low speed. Thrilled to bits with this one.

I think my layout might be 50 shades of RF grey and a random red 08!  :D

The 08 is running just fine now, I jigged the wiring and wheels a little to make sure all pickups were good. Also running in seems to have smoothed her out a touch, so she crawls at speed 2 and upwards... 1 is just too much to ask. :)

Another new loco on my layout.



Br Black late crest 0-6-0 Pannier tank.
N0. 8759

She needs a bit of tlc but once the service is given she should run like a little trooper, not bad for £25.

I have a poole era farish flying scotsman in LNER green 4472 coming in the post at some point and then for now I'm done buying locos, unless a bargain early DMU comes up.

The final (for now) new loco at the sheds of Nodinson Hills



Poole era 4472 Flying Scotsman in LNER Apple Green.
I love this locomotive, I just had to have one in N gauge, I did recently sell my 00 gauge one which actually funded this purchase.
Now just time to find some LNER teak coaches to match.

Saw the GF 66 'Evening Star' advertised on the KMRC web site this morning and it immediately caught my eye.  Saw it in the flesh when I popped in on the way home this afternoon to buy some tree armatures and couldn't resist!  Very definitely a Rule 1 impulse buy
Just finished running it in iaw the instructions and am extremely impressed with it :claphappy: :claphappy:

Some new wagons this time, no locos for a while all spent up.





I'm not sure what classification or types of wagons and I'm certain with one being arrows of indecision it is out of era for me but what era are they all from?
