Latest ebay purchase and another diversion from my usual european collecting: this time a Minitrix 47. Not particularly rare or anything, but 35 years old and looks like it's almost never been run - just look at the "as new" wheels and traction tyres!  I love old Minitrix stuff, despite any inaccuracies. They work well, and that's the most important thing for me.

The latest version of Dapol Blue/Grey HST.

I've added the etch disk brakes, driver and sun visor. I've also added cab lighting which only comes on in the leading power car using F01. If the cab lighting is switched on changing direction will switch the light off in one power car and put it on in the other.

The motive power Dept have been busy with a few new allocations to the fleet, a new class 68 has arrived:



Also joining it is a DB red class 67:



And an original EWS class 66:



And for the railtour excursions, specials and stand in duty a pair of veteren 56s:



And finally an Intercity DVT:



I know they span a couple of eras, and one of the 56s needs renumbering, but rule one applies.

Running in a parallel universe to my N scale Truro, is a plan for a future O gauge layout!

The big brother was a bargain from DCC Supplies, at about 75GBP, whilst the Farish little brother was purchased out here in Auz, D3729, Farish 371-022, weathered. The 08 was purchased for the early diesel era fleet I want to create.

The Farish 08 came fitted with a DCC Concepts ZN6D decoder, which proved troublesome with an NCE Pro Cab system. I have since fitted a Digitrax DZ126, and it runs perfect. Not a fan of the ZN6D, maybe a CV issue.

@Intercity I've just watched the review of the new 68 on Simon's Shed's latest channel offering. Although I am not a fan of modern traction, it does indeed look like an exquisite model.  :thumbsup:

When Colin Heard released the Dean Goods, I bought a green Great Western 2576 and mentioned to Colin that it was a shame he had settled on BR black for the 2516 as it had been allocated to Carmarthen before the war and would have run on my Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line.
Today the postman brought a package from the IoM containing a Great Western 2516!  :claphappy: :bounce: :claphappy:

How's that for personal service!



Lovely looking loco David.

Lovely looking loco David.

They look do good, thanks to Colin, and all my UM models are crying out for loco crew as the footplates (feetplate?) are so open.  I've painted six sets of crew, and put them safely away when I had to clear the modelling stuff for family coming for Christmas... Spring is here and I still can't find them!
Perhaps the proof that there is intelligent life in outer space is that they haven't contacted us.

My first Union Mills loco, and very chuffed with it I am too.

Though it really needs a grimy urban setting.

I was in our neighbouring town, Burgess Hill, a couple of days ago, and walked past a shop I have seen many times before but never thought it worth looking in. It is called Rocking Horse Emporium and I've always assumed it was a charity shop, but this time I happened to spot through the window a display of Dinky Toys and Hornby trains among the bric-a-brac. I decided to investigate and found a shelf of N gauge!!  :D There wasn't much to interest me, but I found, and bought, this Powderham Castle for the princely sum of£40:



This may be a complete waste of money! I don't know whether it runs, although it looks well looked after, and I don't even model GWR. However, I bought it on the presumption of using the chassis to build a LNER Thompson A2 using a whitemetal kit of an A1. It may not be do-able, in which case it will probably appear on the Nporium in due course!

Nevertheless, I shall keep an eye on this shop in future.

Cheers,

Chris

Maybe you've discovered the best source of Rocking Horse poo as well, Chris! ;)

For £40 you can't really go wrong. I doubt there could be much that can't be fixed on Powderham Castle. I've got one which will be fitted with scale front bogie and other details. It won't be as good as the new one (of which I have 2) but at least I'll have the satisfaction of doing the modification myself.
