I do like the liveries they have Mike, so colourful. This one came DCC fitted for 48 off eBay.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Oops posted this to general ... But should post here too

CN Point St Charles Caboose.. From Prairie Shadows, made by Rapido Trains

This cost me an arm and a leg to import from Canada, but well worth it, I just need more of them ack!  Amazing quality can't wait to see it on the end of a train :)

Yes, they're a lovely model. I've got one, to sit in a siding somewhere - once the layout is ready enough!
I am not a complete lunatic - there are pieces missing!

Wow Phil, I thought I'd be the only one... Are you modelling Canadian?  Or just couldn't resist a rule 1 purchase :)

Hi,
Yes, they're a lovely model. I've got one, to sit in a siding somewhere - once the layout is ready enough!
Yup, My layout build still awaiting a restart  :-[ but my pair can be viewed on page 1 of this very topic and page 11 on the Pendolino one - posting the same image three times might be considered a little self-indulgent  :D

At the moment, I am modelling Canadian - or as much as one can in a typical English house (=tiny!) shared with three other people. I mostly model Japanese, but I have long had a 'thing' about CN, and have collected a number of locos and a selection of rolling stock over the years. I felt as though the time had come to do something with them, so I'm building a little 'loco service facility'.  Boards are built, track is laid and I'm just starting on the wiring.

My own latest purchases:

SD-40-2Ws. Now I am jealous :). Tell me how do they run?  They're on my list as I could do with some 6 axle power, (at the mo I just have a CP Trainmaster and a CN m636)

I mostly run 4 axle stuff, C424s, Rs18/10s Gp9RMs etc

They run really well, from an imperceptible crawl up to top speed (which is too fast, but you can't have everything). Lights are nice and bright. The one downside is that the handrails are a bit brittle.
