If I'm lucky my CoT will arrive just in time for my birthday.  :)

...There will be another run of  the G2,  3F, Cauliflower, 2P and D11 in the New Year.

And the T9 too, as confirmed in conversation with Colin just a few weeks ago.

Good choice!

Here's mine. Lovely runner and handsome too especially after some expert fettling by @Ozymandias of this parish:

A lot depends where that 2mm is, I would suggest 2mm (1') difference in wheel diameter (5'7" v 6'7") does matter it's about 18% nearly 1/5th, whereas 2mm difference in wheel spacing 9' as against 10' is about 10%.

If that wheel spacing is on a 6 coupled loco then in most cases the spacing between front and centre and between centre and rear are often different in which case the difference between say 7'+7' and 7'+8' is glaringly obvious.

Out of interest, what are the wheel sizes and spacing on the Farish 4P like in terms of re-using a chassis for a Drummond 4-4-0?

Could a UM tender drive be fitted to drive it so that the Farish motor can be removed entirely and free up space for 3D LSWR bodies?

4P should be OK for L12 and D15 which had 6'7" drivers spaced 10', L11 and S11 had 6' wheels and 10' spacing. The UM T9 tender/drive would be OK for the 6 wheel tenders but not the watercarts unless you add a pair of wheels and add spoke overlays N brass lorry wheels, not perfect but treated top some dirty black paint passable;

 for watercart body Worsley works still list a 2mm kit for one, also lists a D15 body kit for 2mm and N

I have built a 2mm Drummond 6 wheel tender on a UM chassis, so should be no problem with the watercart.
