 :Carriage:



I have been lucky enough to find three rakes of 4 wheeled coaches, British N is not really popular here, most model American and most people didn't know about what would be considered rare items in the UK.

This has started to change recently with the event of eBay, now it is used to check prices, sometimes resulting in some absolutely outrageous ones!

My best buy was a Peco Jubilee for the equivalent of 15 pounds, it had a missing chimney but I got a spare one of those from Peco.

It is some compensation for the difficulty of getting locos posted here and the problem of what to do when you get a duff one.

Regards

 :thumbsup:

My Terrier (Martello) runs really well, Currently got it running on a loop of peco set track Radius 1 curves and 1 double straight, pulling 2x 4 wheeled  LBSCR coach kits at a  snails pace using my Marklin Z Gauge controller. Speed setting 25%
Each lap takes 45 seconds.
Modelling stupid small scale using T gauge track and IDl induction track. Still have  N gauge but not the space( Japanese Trams) Excuse spelling errors please, posting on mobile phone

A little late but I've only just discovered this thread.

I have the following Terriers-
one BR livery
one repainted blue with a nameplate as an industrial (orig SR black)
one SR W8
seven LBSCR liveried including the Brighton Works.

Of these all run superbly, though about half needed a good deal of running-in to get them smooth.  Only once have I rejected one at the shop (as wobbly).  In addition Trevor Webster has an LBSCR pair, both brilliant runners. 

When Parnhams goes out on exhibition Trevor's pair of Terriers goes out, as do my blue one and a random selection of the LBSCR or SR locos.  At the end of the day we often substitute the B17 on the 6-coach train of bogie teaks with a Terrier, which turns a few heads when we do it.  Any Terrier out of the box will do, all are good enough for the train. 

At the moment the BR-liveried one has an uncertain future.  I'm currently grinding out the inside of an old Farish J67 and will probably shoehorn the Terrier chassis into it if I can get enough metal out from the right places.

There you are, TWELVE  "mine runs well" reports.....

All the very best
Les

As a matter of interest is the Terrier the smallest British rtr steamer ?
I have the  Dapol 14xx and that is pretty small.

That is minute! There is  a Fleischmann 0-4-0 tank , I
wonder if that is the smallest n gauge steamer
from any maker.

Also there are various european diesel shunters
which are v small.

I find the Dapol 14xx to be the quietest smoothest running small loco I have ever owned, I am looking foe another one.
Keep on Smiling

There are certainly smaller non UK diesels but the terrier is very small. It's smaller than the Fleischmann little 0-4-0 for example.

Both of mine are excellent but one may need the pickups adjusted as it doesn't traverse points as smoothly as the other one. Pretty good pulling power for its size!

Pulling power isn't bad at all at the size! :)
