Of course you do George.

Deep down you have impeccable taste!

I can explain it to you...

Been at the Urine Recyc again? :hmmm:

Actually it was mainly this last night in The Southgate whilst watching Ruzz Guitar yet again.



I did have a cheeky one of these when I got home though which I was probably drinking at the time of posting:

In April 2024 I will be raising money for Cancer Research UK by doing at least 100 press-ups every day.  Feel free to click on the picture to go to the donations page if you would like to help me to reach my target.



To follow the construction of my layout "Longcroft" from day 1, you'll have to catch the fish below first by clicking on it which isn't difficult right now as it's frozen!

I feel we are starting to be understood in N gauge. These are the 1940s gap fillers between the older Peco and Farish strapped tank wagons and the Revolution Class A and Class B tanks of the late 1950s. After that came the monobloc TTAs.

Nice to see a new wagon. I appreciate that they're early samples but I hope the three segments of the tank fit better on the production models.

Ah I did wonder how close they were to stepping on Revolution's toes. Nice to see it's something that potentially compliments them.

Would these still be hanging around in rakes with the 1950s Revolution A & B tanks?

Definitely around at the same time - the last ones of these were built in 1963, and I've seen photos up to around 1970.
I'm not sure whether they would be in the same rake - the Revolution A & B tanks are vacuum braked, but I think these are handbrake only.

Yeah, the Revolution ones were built for block train movements (see below pic at Fawley). The Farish ones are more suited to smaller rakes.

I've been informed Rails now have them too, so I could have something new to play with come this weekend :claphappy:

Has anyone managed to get the body off the new Dance Hall brake van yet?  Try as I might (without damaging it) I can't get into it!!!

One of my fellow SW Herts members brought his 10000 to the club last week.  Lovely model.  What with that and my new release Saltire 158 we were well away!  Now do I splash out on a green 10001?  I have already "built" one of the AEM resin version in that guise.  Hmmm!  Rule 1 is getting expensive.

Just finished running in my no. 10 000.

It's a beautiful model of an ugly loco.

For me the speed is just how it should be.

Looking forward to watching it haul a rake of blood & custard Stanier coaches this afternoon.

Sorry, but I disagree about it being ugly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, though, so we all feel differently :)
