I have to admit the BR Type 2 (Class 24) looks very good indeed but, to me, a Brush Type 2 (Class 31, later, after re-engining) is the epitome of BR ER in the transition era.

Like the weathered Jinty very nice,I must have a go at weathering mine. The only trouble is the paint would be dry in seconds in this loft,its 90f now has I write this. The fans have been on for ages with the window open so you can guess what it was earlier.

I've been wondering how loft layouts and their owners have been coping with the heat! I've got a loft conversion and that room (not Wrenton's home) is always a bit warmer than the rest of the house. Not 90F at 11pm though.

You're welcome to that! I went down the garden this morning to find soil all over the path and an additional hole dug, presumably by foxes, under some large shrubs. I filled it, and a couple of earlier ones, and put some heavy paving slabs over the area. And then needed a cold shower... I really don't like the heat.

We frequently have 47 degrees in January. Trouble is it's Fahrenheit :doh: :cold:

I certainly don't like the heat either.

Amazingly, I can still run trains over my decrepit layout which endures 47 in summer and 0 in winter!

Maybe Peco Code 80 ain't so bad after all!  ;D

Well I had a job fitting the small bits and pieces to the Class 24, so I think I'll give scratchbuilding locos a miss!

Another pic of the Class 24. The Jinty is still at work in the goods yard.

Wow.

That is an absolute stunner.

There are many, many superb photos in this thread, but there's something about the lighting and composition of this one that sets it apart.

Seconded!  I think the gentle reverse curve might have something to do with it.

It's an interesting headlamp code - a Class 10 train (unless, perhaps, there is a Regional variation on the ER).  The '3F' 0-6-0T in middle distance looks perfect.

A tremendous photograph; thank you very much.

That last pic is fantastic, I agree with previous comments that reverse curve really adds to the pic. Keep up the good work Roger, the standards you set are very high, only wish I could do half has well.
