It did cross my mind Sunday morning to order a weathered Ivatt but as it turns out there were none left and I had to order a class 17 this morning. Synchronicity or what? :D

Glad I could do my bit to help :P

Unfortunately I'm now all spent out so a class 17 will have to wait :'(

A very clear photo of the two locos Steve. They look great but actually I really wanted to comment on the excellent ballasting of the Kato track.  :)

Although my modelling is focussing more and more on 1950s Western Region, I do permit myself the occasional off-piste lest my R1 licence be revoked :-[

Iím putting together a small selection of late 1980s trains representative of things I used to see when I was out and about with my camera.  These superbly detailed PCAs from Realtrack Models are for a Speedlink freight :thumbsup:

Those are nice looking wagons, was tempted myself.

In a small world; I have been messing around with speed link trains on my test loop yesterday / today.

Got to the point when my 03 struggled to move the train, swooped for 37, 47 and 73 examples  :thumbsup:

Steve the PCAís look rather nice, but not for me.

Well this will save you some money as you don't need to buy a Clayton as they didnít exist until 1962 and were up North not on Godís Woeful Railway region.

Hard hat on as I wait the abuse  :no:

Hurrah!  Digitrax DS64s have been in short supply for well over a month in the UK, Covid related or whatever.  In the end I backordered a couple with Coastal DCC before sitting back and waiting for the world to catch up :unimpressed:

Now I can press on with the DCC and wiring side of things which had previously ground to a screeching halt :claphappy:

Steve,

And the toys keep arriving.
Enjoy having fun with the spaghetti

I have only one track by Golden Earring and thatís Radar Love, which was from around 1970, 71 at a guess, your post just made me go and listen too it.

@Ian Morton of this republic parish paid a flying (in a socially distanced way) visit this morning, dropping off a few bits for my train set.

He'd got his Molly with him, who got on famously (in a not socially distanced way) with our Molly :thumbsup:

The dogs enjoyed themselves a great deal.

Though why mine seems to be blowing a raspberry at Steve's is beyond human comprehension.
