So do you use the "stay alive" part of it Di?
Did you buy one with the thingamebob on the end or did you wire one yourself?
It looks a bit big to fit into my 0-6-0's
I used the standard 6 pin decoder just plugged it in and played, no stay alive.

A little more work on the left-hand end of Snoozebury. My new Warship in the back ground.

Keep up the good work Di I am also infected by the desease ,of all diesels the class 52s are my favourites they really do look big and powerful I remember when I had a visit to the Severn Valley and I was in the first coach behind a train  headed by two Westerns they stopped in the tunnel turned of their engines then both started up together ,the sound of those four Maybach engines will be with me forever along with the taste and smell of the diesel .
Something I will never forget and don't think I will ever hear again I think the drivers got a severe reprimand for doing it but it was appreciated by every one on board.

As a trainspotter in my yoof when I first clapped eyes on a Hymek I instantly thought it was the best diesel appearance wise. I have 3 green ones, one of which is a dummy.

As a spotter I saw all of the Hymeks.
To me, green suits them best.
Excellent video Di. Looks very very good.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Second best livery, IMHO, was BR Chromatic blue with light grey window surrounds and small yellow warning panels. Eventually, I will commission one in this livery.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Another new loco has arrived this one is a bargain from the mystery supplier from Taiwan,who features quite often on e bay selling new Grafar locos at a mark down price this time 45 for a loco even the that box shifter in Liverpool can only do for 104,as the locos come in generic boxes with no paperwork or small accessories bag I think they may have fallen off the Kader production line into a convenient pocket, but I don't care at these prices for a new loco I can turn a blind eye to suspect sources of supply,  ;) BTW it is a green class 31.

Nice pic and I really do like the refinery but I'm glad I don't live next door to it!  :thumbsup:

I lived 8 miles from Buncefield when it went bang and that was close enough.
