My Maunsell coaches arrived today and very nice they are too. A couple of them are not free running because of the contact strips. I assume that if you're not going to fit lights then you could remove the contact strips or bend them out of the way?

Mine run fine, Bob but I guess you can adjust the contacts if you don't need them.

It's taken a while, this one, but I hope the wait will have been worth it - very pleased with the latest T9!:
Just a quick run round the test track to make sure I've re-assembled her properly and she'll be on her way back to her (very patient!) owner... :)

I promised Gideon I'd post a few pictures of the T9 when I received it - and here they are.
You might also recognise a couple of other locos I've posted here.,.,.,  :) :)












Enjoy     :beers:

 :greatpicturessign: :thankyousign:

The 'T9' is stunning; simply stunning.  As is the brace of tank engines.

I love your layout; do you have more pictures or a thread devoted to it, please?

With all good wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

I bought the layout from ebay for not a lot of money. Its main purpose was/is to act as a test track for my locos and rolling stock while I work on my main layout.
It looks much better than it actually is as it has many faults and unreliabilities which prevent it working as a  usable layout without much repair and replacement work.
However it is quite scenic and lends itself well to photo assignments as well as the outside loop acting as a reasonable test track.
I posted some pics on a previous thread

Bob

Many thanks for this.  A very attractive layout and clearly the work of a skilled builder.

The pictures and your description will be of great help to me with my project.

 :thankyousign:

All the very best.

Rumours of my disappearance into thin ether are greatly exaggerated.... ;)

Work and holidays and (admittedly very wonderful) times with my boys have rather curtailed loco time of late, but I'm back... :)

I managed to get some lining done on the M7 and the Turbomotive Princess. Not finished by any stretch, but getting there:













Loads more on the workbench - will get some pics soon!
