Freight grey does seem to dominate the collection!

Many thanks for the latest updates, Andrew, with the GWR and LMS demonstration goods trains both of which are very impressive indeed. I see that like John (Claverdon) and Martin (Port Perran) you're one of the lucky few who has a Peco Collett 0-6-0. (I want a BR Black one as, after the WR took over Exmouth Junction shed from the SR they moved one there for snowplough duties before its final withdrawal.)

Bob at BRLines is a National Treasure. A lot of my early eBay GF loco. purchases were made as good as new by Bob and made ready for DCC fitting (by Douglas at Wickness Models, Scotland) where necessary.

Thanks Chris, do you think it is a Peco one?  I had been thinking it was a well built Langley kit one as it is on a grafar chassis ... I got it in an auction job lot last December and not really looking to keep it as I am very much an LNER man when it comes to loco's (though having said that, have just bought a Bachmann Fairburn 2-6-4T in Caledonian Blue) so the PRPS are looking for a good home for it - plan is to sell it when I get home in a few weeks time.  Have ran it on my test track and it runs really well.

Agree with you on Bob, I had 4 GWR coal bogie wagon bodies and enough sets of bogies to complete them, but no plastic pins to keep them in place, he gave me a tip on how to get round that which worked a treat.  Before I left for work, I sent off 3 DMU power cars for his attention (after he had patiently explained all the parts I would need to do it myself) - will take a look at getting them converted to DCC once they come back, as it will be a while before the layout is running, I have time to send them off to Wickness models (it is where I buy my decoders anyway) for that, I had been using another guy for my conversions (he was 55 including the decoder), but am open to suggestions on better options

Cheers,
Andrew

I don't think it's a Peco one.
Lovely locos though and I do like your demonstration goods trains.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I have the Langley Collett in a yet to be finished state. Applying the 3 foot rule it's a very nice model. Could be interested in it if you want to sell.

On closer inspection, no, it's not a Peco Collett 0-6-0. I have to admit that I did not know that there had been a Langley kit for this loco. (but they used to have a very wide range of metal body kits). I'm sure that you could still sell it for a reasonable price. I'll wait for a BR Black Peco one as I have plenty of other locos. which ran in North Cornwall awaiting DCC-firring.

In some months, there will be more PO wagons and vans heading to Perthshire in the liveries of other businesses in North and West Cornwall. (At present both Martin and I are pretty busy but with different work.) Sooner, I hope, the single-bolster timber wagons will be despatched.

Thanks Brian, it is definitely up for grabs, no feel for what a reasonable price is, will PM you, I have some other photos I can post too.

Cheers,
Andrew

Will need to get my finger out and start ordering up the paint and the electrics instead of buying Fairburn 2-6-4T loco's  :-[

Meanwhile, back on the tracks, I embarked on trying some transfer applications from Robbie to some spare kits I had



these kits started out a nice white plastic... it was only after I had carefully applied the nice matt black paint (very proud I was of how well they turned out!) you see here and tried to put on one of the transfers that I realised that the white lettering is actually transparent and it needs a white undercoat!

I was torn, the Guinness logo actually looked really good with a the lettering in black.... might try that in the future, but wanted to stay true to the transfer this time around



I did manage to retrieve the one I applied onto black undercoat & salvaged it
