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.
 :)
Hey Ho!! - Just received phone call from Cheltenham Model Centre saying Deltic has buffer missing. So cancelled order. What a disappointment. Still, I know where I can get another 'nearly new' Deltic for a little more cash. Or maybe I'll just save the cash for a pre-ordered item (if any eventually materialise that is!!)
 :(
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

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

No problems at all, did remove the DCC chip to run the loco in then put it back in as I do with any DCC fitted loco I get. Running numbers for the Mk1 coaches are:

SO W3791
BCK W21080

Cheers ...

Same here, although I opted for the 'Seaside Excursion' set which I can collect from the post office this very afternoon. :claphappy:
Now waiting for the 'Cumbrian Mountain' set to arrive...

Peedie Models new chimney pots !!

Decided that the vast array of card kits need something different to the cocktail stick chimleys.  Next I will be buying the soundtrack from Mary Poppins, cue Dick van Dyke......
