That lined version looks good.

Collected mine from the Delivery Office today. Seems to have lost a front buffer somewhere though and I can't see it in the packaging anywhere.



May have to buy a second one if there's another production run in the future.
Give Colin a shout. You shouldn't have to accept that. I'm sure he wont have sold all of the run.

I'll give Colin a ring when I get chance. I didn't mean the comment about buying a second to sound related to the missing buffer, but it does sound like that's what I meant.
Apart from the missing buffer, it's a nice model, so I wouldn't mind owning a second at some point in the future with a different name and number.

Edit: For those still waiting for theirs, just thought I'd add that I ordered mine Thursday the 18th and it would have arrived Thursday 25th if I'd been home when the Postie came. I paid the extra for next day delivery as I'd bought a Dean Goods and Dukedog at the same time, these three being my first UM locos and if there are any more GWR ones in the future, they won't be my last.

Some one was asking earlier if City of Truro could have been seen with a B set. The November edition of Steam Days has an article on the Didcot Newbury and Southampton Railway. The photograph at the heading has a GWR Mogal with what appears to be a B set, so its not beyond the realms of imagination that CoT could have run with a B set in tow whilst on this line.

I might eventually do the entire side but I want to confirm the curves and fit with the current sheet which has 3 loco types on it.

If there is demand I will do a custom sheet.

should you decide to print the decal's , please add my name to your list ...

I'm going to sort this out tomorrow, just trying to get acceptable buffer beam numbers.

There will be a small charge for materials and postage and there will be enough for two models to allow for mistakes  :D

Only joking - need all the spares i can get with my eyesight.
Well done and thank you in advance.
Decal design and production is something magical to me.

The transfers to line the City of Truro with the Garter Badge are available at £6 to cover materials and postage. 

Each strip has enough to do two models if your careful.

Anyone who wants them please PM me with their real name and postal address and I will send them an email address to make a PayPal payment.

Three punters did the high bidding, One is satisfied and with two left there is a chance for one more big price ticket.

Spoke to Colin today, City of Truro is sold out. Arrgghh!! Too slow.
Next run 2019 in second half of year. I am not bidding up to £300 on eBay though should one appear.

When I asked Colin to do City of Truro he said he didnít think there would be enough interest in it ,But after pestering him over and over again and allso reminding him that even modern era Modellers would buy it as it ran Rail Tours he gave in and look what happened itís sold out and he will do a second run next year ,I doubt if he will do the ellaberate version BUT Snowwolflair has allready produced some transfers for the version released and being a very clever chap could be persuaded to do the original version transfers and Iím sure there are lots of you as well as our Ozy who will be able to do a re paint. I will be going through my stock in the new year to thin out locos that donít get a lot of use ,there is so much new stuff coming out that would get a lot of use and the only way I can afford them is to have a good sort out and sell the IMPULSE  buys that I donít use ,I will have at least two 66s and other locos once Iíve made up my mind .
So MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL
