I am in the early 70's after a quick count up with most of my stuff from the Poole era Farish range although I have started adding to it again lately including 3 class 60's of which I am trying to get the full set that Farish have produced (4 remaining I think).

I still need
60059 Swinden Dalesman in Load Haul
60 061 Alexander Graham Bell in Transrail
60 084 Cross Fell in Transrail
60 081 I.K.B in GWR
These are all available at the moment so will be easy enough to get.
60006 in British Steel Blue was the hard one to get as no body had it in stock, but i managed to get a new one from Glasgow yesterday  :)

Nothing wrong with 8....I got my first train over 15 years ago, and it's only the last 4 years I've gone mad on buying them.  I've slowed down a lot since I realised I'd have to DCC them all in the future.   ;D

As Tank says, I too have been collecting mine for over 20 years. It's frightening to think how much I have spent, but as they were bought bit by bit you don't notice it.

Depending on who you talk to, either too few (me!) or too many (Mrs Dreyfus!)... ;D

I have been collecting my 40-odd for over 15 years and I have steam, BR Blue and modern image.  Most of mine are off eBay.  But it's not quantity - it's quality that counts!

True Mustermark.

A loco that doesn't run well isn't a loco. I've had a few in my time, and I don't tolerate them. I "score" everything out of ten, and don't tolerate anything less than 8 (runs OK, might need an initial push, or might be noisy).

As I am totally rubbish at all but the most basic repairs, they either get a new chassis, or get a few cogs removed to convert them into dummies for double-heading or siding fillers. Failing that, they go on eBay as spares/repairs, where they are invariably bought by a very nice chap in Paisley who fixes and resells them.
Two rails good. Three better.

When the postie makes it over here from the UK with my parcel from Trains_4U :thumbsup: I will have a total of 14 :GraFar: Westerns :-[.  That will be about a third of my collection.  Some are still waiting to be renamed ::).  I promised my wife I would stop now :angel:, but secretly I would love to get the set of 74!!! :evil:

Can't wait to see the new Dapol Western Venturer.  I will be getting that for my birthday, I hope! ;D

I do have a soft spot for Japanese trains, thanks to PC games which feature them, but having waaaay too much stock already, I really can't add yet another country to my fleet.

I do, however, use Japanese chassis to replace knackered British ones under my DMU/EMUs.
