Been testing out the pair of new Class 50's on Porthkerry today.








Lovely smooth runners, although I did have a couple of random derailment/uncoupling issues on the inside mainline.

Cheers, Stu

Hi all, a few more photos of trains on the layout for those who are interested. Unfortunately I haven't had much time lately to either use or do anything on the layout. Hopefully during the winter I will be able to.

Excellent photos, particularly the B&W one.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
