Spraying such a tiny thing seems like an awful waste of paint!

A new arrival.

Well, three new arrivals, actually, though so far I've only tested this lovely little 04.



Quite accidentally in a passing comment, I discovered that NewportNobby still had some of the job lot he was disposing of for a fellow member. Turns out it was this shunter, and two old Farish locos, a GWR Panier and a BR 4F, at a price too good to refuse, even with postage to Australia!

This is a gorgeous little model, decked out in my favourite livery. The level of detailing in such a tiny model is really outstanding - vacuum pipes, horn, metal hand rail.... brilliant.



It's a sweet little runner, too. Easily controllable at slow speeds. Most impressive.



I haven't tried running the older locos yet, but Mick assures me they are fine.

They only took 12 days to arrive here, which is pretty good in these times.

Will post pics of their debut on the B&CE when it happens.  :thumbsup:

Woo - hadn't realised @Newportnobby had stock left.

I have a Farish Class 03, which uses the same chassis. Lovely models.

It's a mystery to me why attractive locos like these weren't kept in production. They're popular and (usually) command premium prices second hand. If you model almost anywhere set in the UK during the last 60 years (!), a couple of either can easily be justified.
