Just running in a fifth GF class 350.
Credit where credit is due to Graham Farish - they have all been superb runners straight out of the box.
Three of them have become doner chassis for my class 365s that operate on Neely.
Two of them will run on the club’s layout Westgate Park.
All have been converted to Dcc.

I bought one of these c 3 years ago - they were going for decent prices even then.  Agreed, lovely looking model and great runner.  Totally unlikely either for Portpatrick Town or the emerging Allanbrae.  But I had a masochistic liking for them as I commuted from Watford to London on them for the last few years of my life in employment.  I think this qualifies as Reason 1?   when running it on the club layout at shows I put a dummy 66 on the front - the story being it is being moved from works to London. 

As a passenger I admit I preferred the 321s which preceded them.

This is a good idea!   I once found a video of this happening in real life, wish I could find it again!  :(.  I think the train was passing King's Langley.

From memory the train formation was EWS Class 66, container flat with 20' Kuhn and Nagel container, 350 train, another container flat with a K&N container, then four four-wheeled open wagons.  The extra wagons presumably are for braking.

I follow the spirit of this on Lofthole:



I use ZZAs for the wagons at the end.  I use a 67 on the front as it is a rare reason to use it.

Cheers Jon  :)
