Here’s my latest acquisition... definitely a “Rule 1” purchase but I love Panniers and have happy memories of seeing LT-liveried versions operating on both the South Devon and Paignton & Dartmouth railways last summer!




Would be VERY rule 1 for me, but I do very much approve. I have been captivated by LT Panniers ever since I was allowed onto the footplate of one as a boy at (I think) the Bluebell.

Which is still very odd, given that the wheelbase of a bogie is the same or less than a typical 0-6-0 loco.   Maybe a twist in the track and not enough slack in the bogie pivots?
Definitely not a twist in the track - it will do it on any of the four corners of my running in oval, which is laid on a completely flat board.

I can't find any minimum radius spec for this loco, so I've written to Dapol.

That's a lovely model. And there is something attractive about the LT livery.

A very good rule 1 purchase!  :thumbsup:

A couple of new purchases recently.

A nice BR green Class 04 diesel


A 20 Ton BR Bauxite brake van




I have a couple of others still on their way, a BR green class 08, a class 25 which went away for repair in BR green also, and a BR black early crest (invoking Rule 1 a little) 9F
Will post others as they arrive.

From the angle of that front coupling I thought it had Arnold Simplex auto-couplings for a moment  :D

The new girl on the layout.
Dapol 9F in early crest br black.

It turns out 92100 worked the line that runs through my town. Hauling mostly iron ore and steel to and from the steel mill in flint.

At the Leyland Show today I managed to snaffle an almost new Dapol 57xx pannier tank for £40 (less than the price of a Farish coach :P). It runs OK although with a bit of a limp and somehow Dapol have managed to create an 0-6-0 with a whining engine like nearly all my other Dapol locos. It may possibly quieten with running in but I have my doubts :hmmm:

I wonder if I will be allowed to go, and if there will be any bargains left?

At the Leyland Show today

I do envy some of you back home in the UK. About the only show I get to is the one in Enniskillen, (September). Unless of course I can wangle myself a holiday back home when there is a show on.  ;)

A recent raid on Eilbay has resulted in the capture of these two terrible poor BR locomotives, soon however the chassis of one may find its way into a decent LMS large tank.

Who knows what the other one will end up under, now I wonder if the bodies can be used to create a decent locomotive?

I love the 4mt, one of my favourite classes.
