DP1 Deltic Merseyside Express Train Set
« on: February 07, 2011, 03:54:26 AM »
In a shear moment of madness, I was thinking of getting one of these, but then I though, is the track 80 or 55, has any one got one of these that can let me know,I know it is a chip fat burner but I have got a soft spot for Deltics ???.
now going to chew on a bit of coal to bring me round to the real world :smiley-laughing: :thumbsup:

Hmmmm i have to admit i have one  :'( Im sure i can find space for it on WCML layout (once built!!) loosly based around Staffordshire!!! But im in the 1990's Intercity and Sectors era......Hmmmm what might have been railtour??!!  :smiley-laughing:  :smiley-laughing:

Seriously though, it is a lovely model. I was at the Stafford show yesterday and seen them going for around 75 mark, and the sets you can pick up for 100 ish.....I got mine just before xmas first released.....

The track in all the Farish sets I've seen is their own, but it's compatible with Peco settrack. Therefore it's code 80.

Don't be totally fooled by this set, the loco in mine developed a horrible grinding noise when going round a curve section. :thumbsdown:

Lucky for me I bought it from Rails of Sheffield and have replaced the loco.  :thumbsup:

Sad to hear you had a problem with yours, but I still think the set is worth looking at. Even if you don't want the track or controller (and an extra controller is always handy) you're getting the Deltic in a unique livery and 2 stanier coaches with exclusive running numbers. As the set can be had for a whisker over 100 that's a good deal I think, though buying from a good retailer is always sensible,
