Having seen the PWM shunter (static model) on Carl Woodward's Gloucester and Horton Road Shed layout thread on here, I just had to have one.

Here it is (a dummy chassis, as the surgery required to an 03/04 chassis is quite severe) alongside an Adams B4 0-4-0 (which is also a very small loco!).

The PWM will live hidden away in the depot somewhere, so a static model is great for that.

The PWM is a kit of about a dozen parts. There are just three (chassis, body and cab) in the photo.

I purchased another loco from the Bachmann Thomas and Friends range. Percy this time. It's a lovely loco however unfortunately it is faulty. The connecting rod to the pistons was loose on arrival and under load this has been falling out so the loco is going back for replacement.



Below is my video review.

I am looking forward to getting the replacement loco as it is so nice (for what it is).

It would have been rude not to :D



Edit:- After the specified hour or so it's still running like a bag o' nails although it will crawl along when required. Pointless returning it for replacement as they haven't got any so it's either back to Dapol to see what they can do with it or to @Dr Al
 :(

Kernow had more in from Dapol so I sent this one back requesting a replacement they'd tested.
Evidently they were all as bad ::)
As a refund is no use when I want a loco I have asked them to send me one of them and I'll send it away to be looked at by either Dapol themselves or a well known Doctor on the foum

I think all posts regarding the class 59 should be banned until I at least receive the balance invoice for my three on order  :*(

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!

Arrived today, Bachmann "Collectors Club" experimental XP64 livery Class 47 (Or Brush Type 4 as it was called back then). This is the "Sound Fitted" version.

The newly tooled 47 is a lovely model and nice to have a Collector's Club loco in a transition livery, albeit a quirky experimental one. It'll do nicely until the BR Green ones eventually arrive, and I'll definitely be having one of those too  :)

Oh, and the sound is excellent, great sound file and plenty loud enough  :thumbsup:

I already knew about yours so it doesn't count. My lesson learnt is to pay in full next time although that would have been a big chunk out of my beer kitty for all 3.
