Thats a nice looking loco even though its a Southern of some sort. I like loco's like that, I might invoke Rule 1 on my layout, or a heritage railway instead.

If it were in preservation, a few BR Mk1s would be a typical train..

Seeing discussion about the GraFar Castle hereabouts reminded me of this shot from the archive.

Thank you, Roger, for a splendid photograph of a gorgeous locomotive type.  Much more elegant than a 'King', I think.

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

Yes what a superb loco and a superb pic, another reason for me to go for a heritage railway myself. Just watched a guy on Youtube last night with a N-gauge Castle fitted with sound, it makes me want one too.

A Castle is more functional than a King in both real life and chess :D

What spoils the looks of the King for me is the ugly bogie.

But I can't imaging a Castle pulling 25 coaches at 100mph (albeit with a Hall as pilot and descending Hatton Bank).  It was an amazing experience, but the 15:00 from Snow Hill (11:45 ex- Birkenhead) did it every day, always with a King and a Hall.  Since those days, I have had a soft spot for the Kings.
With kind regards

I’ve just been ‘running in’ my SECR Green C class and birdcage coaches. Very nice indeed :thumbsup:

I also have a green C class on my LMS layout.

Bravo to Farish for taking the risk of doing it in pre-grouping livery.

It is getting to the point where I struggle to tell N gauge from OO.  Are N gauge manufacturers are artists.
