Tank - those 159's will probably look like bananas now! They have a tendency to bow. You might be shocked once you dust them off after eight years!

Martyn - thanks for the info. I have seen neodymium magnets of the same dimensions as the Farish magnets, although the ones I saw were quite expensive relative to the cylinders. The cylinders cost GBP16.54 for 200. At 4 cylinders per loco, that's 50 equivalent Farish magnets.

I agree though that once magnet would look nice and be in keeping with the original. Do you have an example of the neodymium single magnet? If you'd care to take a picture and post it on here for us all to see, and also send me a copy, then I'd happily include it on the site, since it's a valid option.

Brail - funny you should mention oddballs! I was thinking about the Thai Railways 158 or 159 (can't remember which it is) and I wasn't aware they made a class 08 for the Dutch Railways. Again, if you have an example, or know someone who does, then it would be great to get hold of a picture. Since I'm using this forum to discuss my site, then any pics would, I'm sure, be gratefully received on here, and I could also include them in an oddball section.

I have a few resprays, some from a member on here, and they are going to be included in a respray section. That's to come though - once step at a time.

Kindest

That would be the one Al.

A picture on a chassis to add to the photo catalogue, preferably on some track would be much appreciated. Happy to lend credit to anything contributed.

I don’t have one myself but I do see them fairly often at Dutch swapmeets (although at pretty hefty prices (about 80€/£60). If I would need one I would buy the recent Bachmann Farish version and repaint it.

Here are some pictures from a Dutch online auction site: http://auction.catawiki.com/kavels/2802703-graham-farish-n-100d-serie-500-600-hippel-van-de-ns

The reason why the Dutch have these is that the War Department left/sold a couple of class 11’s (predecessor of class 08) to the NS after world war 2 and they were so impressed that they ended up buying 100 or so from English Electric in the 40’s & 50’s. Similar Victorian Railways bought a handful of them too (and renamed them F class) and I’m a bit surprised that Farish didn’t do an Aussie version of the class 08 too.

Thanks Brail - that's most helpful. I shall get it listed on the site tomorrow.

Hi Daniel,
Not sure if you’re going to include steamengines at one stage on your site.
But Farish also produced a Dutch steam loco Class 8800 based on their J94 with ref number 8811 & runningnumber was also 8811.
By pure coincidence I found some pictures of it on the same website as for the serie 500/600: http://auction.catawiki.com/kavels/3748525-graham-farish-stoomlocomotief-8811-van-de-ns

Rare, but that one's not the ideal example - smokebox is on wrong, front coupling is upside down, as are the wheelsets - someone's had that apart at some point and not put it back together right!

Alan

I'm afraid I have no chassis for this - I got it as shown, similar to the Stobart stuff. Is a tidy undamaged example though.

Brail - that's fantastic, thanks. Any other info you have regarding Farish in the Netherlands will be welcomed and I'll work on getting the pictures on the site when I get home tomorrow - I'll have to think into which category I should place them.

Al - no problem about the picture, but thanks all the same. Anomalies notes re the J94 pic and agree it's been tinkered with. I guess it will do (with annotations) until something better comes up.

Cheers

Daniel

Thanks Dr Al – I hadn’t noticed this but then my knowledge of steam engines stops at Thomas The Tank engine  ::)

But I was intrigued enough to search the net for a better picture which I didn’t find but instead I discovered that Farish made a Swedish version of the 08 too: http://swen.nmodell.se/diesellok.html
Strange that they mention as refnumber 100F which is also used for the EWS limited edition livery.

Sorry Daniel – that’s the limit of my knowledge of Dutch Farish models.
But I would love to know who started those initiatives. Was it Farish trying to find some alternative markets or was it a local Dutch/ Swedish shop ordering a special edition?

It may simply have been in the wrong box - with secondhand it's difficult to know. Of course, it may have originally been shipped in that box - only someone who assembled these in the factory could definitively say.

Was it Farish trying to find some alternative markets or was it a local Dutch/ Swedish shop ordering a special edition?


Definitely - Farish were going down many routes I think, including the Thai 158s, MacDonalds liveried 'Shredded wheat' dummy 0-6-0 tank locos, Eddie Stobart liveried class 37s and containers, and maybe others. They also did a fair bit of experimentation, e.g. with nicely spoked steam loco wheels. None of it got to market it seems.

Cheers,
Alan

I have the Farish J94 in Dutch livery, and will attempt to send a picture or two if interested.

Good Evening All

Firstly, Brail, I haven't forgotten about the overseas specials, I will make a section for those.

In the meantime, I have been doing some cataloguing. Visit http://thefarishshed.com/the-turntable-2/ to see what's been added today ... classes 25/31/40/55/56/57 and, oh yes, some resprays. See if you can spot Ozymandias' resprays on the site. Click on the pictures when you get to the site and you'll eventually get to slideshows. Below are a couple of pictures to whet your appetite. I hope you enjoy them ...

I like the new "old-style Farish catalogue" look  :thumbsup:

One slight quibble - "the class 57 is derived from the class 56" - do you mean the Farish version? The prototypes are of course reengined 47s (albeit with class 56 traction motors).
