ahhhh i want a dutch class 37, you got one for 40 right???

anyway...

i did get a class 58 (58 023, railfreight) and that was 50 which was a good deal

i also got a Mk1 FK, a GUV, a TEA, and an HEA... also got wires, paints, a decoder etc. etc...

i guess i should've saved up more money to blow, especially on the much reduced stock at the dapol and farish stands... there's always next year...

Luck of the draw really ! That farish stand was complete chaos.... at one point i asked a nice gentleman to pass me a handfull of boxes so i could have a look, they couldn't take the money fast enough ! What made me laugh was when one guy asked to pay by card and at least a dozen people groaned  (me included !) :smiley-laughing:

I pre ordered a class 60 from CJM for 450. I feel really sick now :thumbsdown:

On the bright side I get the 'Rolls Royce' of British N to my spec in little more than 5 weeks :thumbsup:

I must look really guilty because she has vetted my megre 30 purchase and deemed it acceptable spend BUT she keeps giving me the look of 'knowing i have done something daft with money'.............

oh well come Oct she will never remember, and I get a CJM class 60 :evil:

mm ok..

Farish Class 37 , in BR Blue (new DCC version) 40
Dapol Class 58, in Coal Sector 40
Dapol Brit Robin Hood 80
Dapol Class 156 Dummy Pair, in Regional 15

Farish Freightliner Bogie Wagon 9
Extra Containers for above 3 a pack x 2

Detailing parts for my Farish 4P (dome, chimney) from N Brass Locos 3

I had the Railfreight 58023 too but swapped it for the Coal Sector version as I have 58012 already. May well be the one bluedepot picked up later as I only saw one and was there on the dot.

From your pic, you got an eclectic collection (or should that be electric ???) I'm too tired - left home at 6 am and the M6 home was sh**e, to say nothing of some pillock in a Freelander who tried to get into my boot. Everyone brakes apart from him, you hear the screech of tires, look in your rear view mirror and see him fishtailing towards you. I assumed the crash position i.e tucked my jeans into my socks so the car wouldn't fill up.  :-[

The EWS liveried one, much like the one on the extreme top right of his fine stand. I got a picture of it which i will post tomorrow when im feeling less sick. He does them in batches of five so he tells me. ive ordered the same livery and weathered as disply but numbered 60035, which i receive end of Oct. Im gonna pay him this week. I cant wait to own one of his masterpieces :beers: :music: :thumbsup:

As long as it's N gauge and I like it, i'll buy it  ;D  Used to follow the old ' can't have that, it won't fit in my period' thing, but now I just buy what I want...

As for the ride home... one hell of a heavy shower slowed everybody down except for the jerk in a merc (sprinter, obviously !) who decided to tail gate some poor bloke when you couldn't see 10ft in front of you... crazy  >:(

Stil, it was a great show, was well worth the trip and good to put some faces to some of these strange names ! Good to see you folks  :thumbsup:
