Another J39 in lner lined livery. To be renumbered and sound equipped.  Total now in this livery 2.  Along with two other very special Loco's which I can't say to much about at the moment but are Loco types used on the prototype of my up coming layout. 'SILLOTH BAY'

Now I really think I should pass on my other J39's in br livery especially the late crest ones.

I told myself firmly for many years that there would never be any steamers on my layout. But a cheap second hand J39 in weathered BR livery fits so nicely into my modelling framework that I eventually succumbed. Very nice it is too, but there will never be another steam train on my layout!!!!

The J39 is a handsome thing and mine runs very well but the weathering (as many from Farish) is too uniform really, unlike the Dapol weathered stuff based on a Mercig template :hmmm:

The Dapol weathering is complete and can look samey on multiple vehicles, the Farish weathering is a useful base to put your own final weathering on... IMHO

A visit to the model shop yesterday intending on getting a few scenic bits ended up with me walking out of the shop with the new Farish 370-070 Cornish Riviera Express set  :o

I suppose if you really wanted one the set could be bought. The loco blanking plug put back (it was included), keep the coaches and sell off the DCC controller, track and the now redundant decoder and you wouldn't be far out of pocket if at all !

The Graham Farish Class 57 in Network Rail livery.  I saw it in my local shop two weeks ago and simply fell in love with it.  Last week Monday I returned to the shop and purchased it.  It's a great model - now it needs a little track to get it to take a spin.  I also need some cars / wagons to go with it.  Oh well, at least I've got it!

Hi Westbury  :),

Hope you've had no problems with the set. 

Can you tell me the running numbers of the coaches, please?  I'm wondering if I should succumb or not, and whether the set would fit in with my ideas.   :hmmm:

Thanks in advance,

Tennoji

Does not fit in with my time period but then again nor does a 1934 Brighton Belle...

Just bought a second hand prototype Deltic from Cheltenham model centre - near new for 80 and a 3 month warranty. - Couldn't resist.
In my trainspotting days I remember seeing this good looking diesel (strong words from a steam buff!!) thundering through Hornsey station on the way to or from Kings Cross - just had to have it for my in progress preserved railway.

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!
