Appendum:

Just in case Webbo gets annoyed by my last post, his layout is nearly finished, and the scenic sections are awesome.

Saw with me own eyes.  :beers:

Obviously a bit of weathering is required  :)

George

Any Australian stuff I acquire will be running on the same rails as my Canadian stuff, but as when running my UK rolling stock, I'll need to shift my cars to the other side of the street. Progress towards scenery completion has been slowed by the arrival of flying ants in my train room.

Chris, the SRA class 44 is an ALCo world export model DL-500B. Your RENFE Alco1800 is a DL-500C so the similarity in appearance is not coincidental. A very limited selection of passenger cars are available from Gopher Models.

Bingley Hall, thanks for the photo. My class 44 has just been through the paint shop.

Oh no! Those flying ants are horrible. Don't let them get at your lovely new loco!

Really pleased to have managed to bag a triple pack of Class B Esso by RevolutioN - I missed out on the original project and have been trying to track down some at a reasonable price for months.
Seen a few UM ones at +80 but really wanted the early Esso... finally bagged the pack on The Bay... AND at a really great price 64.50 including postage so only a tad above the original issue price, very, very happy  :bounce:

I don't think there is a thread on Ebay good buys just madness though...

Two of the "new" additions to the rosters for Hawthorn Dene and its successor Croft Spa.


60907 is a recent purchase from Dr Al via eBay.  It WAS a Green Arrow.  Since acquisition I've tested its pulling power (10 coaches forwards, 9 tender-first), first restoring the front coupling.  It then went to DCC Supplies for fitting with a decoder in the tender as they can't get hold of any very small decoders at the moment so couldn't put the chip inside the cab roof.  I may add a storm sheet to cover the wires.  Renumbered as 60907, which was a York loco that retained its inside steampipes.  York V2s were heavily used on relief passenger along the whole of the East Coast Main Line, plus workings that took them on to the Great Central and London Midland regions. It still needs coal, crew and weathering.


This one will make its debut on passenger (probably) at Warley at the end of this month.  Hawthorn Dene is stand C31, two places along from the N Gauge Society stand.  60907's eventual duty is the King's Cross to  Catterick Camp troop train on Croft Spa, a signature train as it was an eight-coach rake hauled by a tender-first V2. It had worked chimney-first North to Darlington where it reversed, hauling the train tender-first to Catterick Bridge where it reversed again to take the steep branch to Catterick Camp.  the train passed through Croft Spa twice, once with the loco chimney first and once tender-first.  A train that has been waiting for me to find a strong V2...



One of three recently purchased Dapol B1s, all via eBay. This one had hardly any track time and runs perfectly- one of the others had a circuit board issue and the third had been dropped.  All are now renumbered, DCC fitted, and available for front line service.  The one with the circuit board issue I hard wired a chip into. This one will share the explosives train on both Hawthorn Dene and Croft Spa.  Again it still needs weathering, coal and crew.


Why Dapol rather than Farish B1s?  Quite simply there are two duties (a coal train run tender-first and a big fast goods) that the Farish B1 I had wouldn't look at pulling.  As it wasn't up to the job I sold the Farish one on.

The V2 is a beauty, Les, and being in possession of one of Dr Al's locos I know just how good they are.

The new locos which I've got recently, on my very much unfinished layout.
A Farish 3MT (slightly damaged valve gear, but still runs fine, will need to get it fixed at some point)
A Dapol Class 33
and also...
Spoiler: show

Farish 5MT Standard Arthur "Camelot" Which is sadly, only a model...
Which I might get renamed/numbered at some point, will be after the new years anyway.

As for rolling stock, managed to get an older Farish BR(S) Green Bulleid three pack coaches, a 50' Bogie B (slightly damaged but bodged fixed it) and also another BR Mk.1 BSK in BR(S) Green.
There might of been other rolling stock recently bought, though I can't remember which ones at the moment.

After years of looking for one at a reasonable price, I found a BR160 in pristine condition for a very reasonable price at Central Hobbies in Vancouver
Very very happy 😃
