Great stuff

Should the 47 become 47 807 (sorry I am a broken record), you have a customer for her right here, the Skyline home for Duffs  :D

Funnily enough - that's the very one I was going for! :)

Not repaints, these, but restorations nonetheless.

I bought these three locos as non-runners/spare or repair. Taken apart, given a damned good clean, a lot of love and the odd decal/buffer/sundry stray part here and there, and they're running pretty much good as new and looking none too shabby.

I don't know what it is about taking something seemingly broken and redundant and breathing new life into it, but I find it incredibly rewarding.

I'm still on the hunt for a reasonably priced Duchess for you to work your magic on, you're not getting off that lightly.

Well when my next two Minitrix warships arrive they will join the other three to keep you busy...also talking of Peco jubilees I have a very weathered one that could do with a visit to the paint shop. it could sail with the rest of the fleet.
Don't want you to get out of practice and fail to achieve perfection like you usually do :smiley-laughing: :smiley-laughing:

PS Green or maroon Jubilee fans?

Or, if you ask him nicely he does an awesome lined black LMS.

Green or maroon... hmmmm…  :hmmm:  maroon LMS is lovelier, but BR green would get it closer to the era of your Warships... (except the blue Zenith!)
