NPN,

The block of flats up top looks like it is going to topple over!
What are your tracks laid on?

Cheers
Phil

What business does the Deltic prototype have with a fictitious Western Region branch line in 1960? No clue, but if it works we can figure out a story.

Here's mine working a 'soccer special' near Oxford c. 1960

Nicely done!

Now I know who I lost that auction to!!!, I did get the class 70 that ended right before it though for a whooping $34, thatís a whole 26 pounds!!!

@Intercity - the Deltic arrived today, and appears to be all it could be. I hope you have the same good experience with your class 70. I'll post a couple of pictures when I've got the light right on the layout, but I'm very pleased.

Got the new Deltic running on the railway. Need to play around with some CVs so that it accelerates and decelerates realistically, but here's a few pics. What a bargain for $60!

Hi Chris

I haven't really done much running in, I wanted to get the loco on the layout and take some pictures. It does seem a little erratic in one direction, I'll probably need to strip it down and see if I can see what the problem is. It does look great though, I'm really pleased with it.
