This last 4 or 5 weeks I've bought (for Xmas??)
Farish J39
Farish green Class 26
Dapol green Class 22 milk tank set
Dapol 45xx
Farish City of Birmingham

and... a few wagons

I am now rapidly approaching financial ruin and have DEFINITELY run out of pocket money.

I really must start laying track on my baseboards so I can start using this stuff in earnest!!


So if I see someone down the shops with a board saying Layout and Locos to support I will know it is Bob.  :D

You mean you haven't already seen me outside Asda begging for Jubilee tyres and the odd NEM coupling!

That squeaky-clean 37 is crying out to be weathered !

How long long will you resist the temptation ?

Best regards,


Joe

That's your fault... :)

My Christmas present to me this year will be either :

Dapol Schools loco "Malvern" in Bulleid green livery

or

Dapol A4 loco with valances "Empire of India" in garter blue livery.

I will choose whichever is LEAST likely to be discounted by the major retailers after Christmas.

My feeling is that the A4s are selling better than the Bulleid liveried Schools so I think there is more likelihood that the Schools will be discounted before the A4s.

What are your views ?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,


Joe

It's Xmas 🎅. I'd get both - then the discount issue doesn't matter so much.
 :)
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

I've got 3 weeks off over Christmas so my present to myself is more timber, another sheet of ply and track, lots of track. Time to start stage 2 of the railway room even though stage 1 is far from complete. I have the modelling bug big time  :D :ngauge:

4 Bottles of Highland Park Viking Honour, :)
4 Bottles of Highland Park Dragon legend, :)
Already purchased... (and one opened).

N gauge? depends on what I can find next week, I've taken a couple of days off, of which, one will have to be donated to SWMBO for shopping.
