Probably in the wrong thread here, but in relation to my post above, does anyone know what a suitable locomotive would be to pair with my new maroon inspection coach? I thought it would look really cool with my green Class 14, but as Etched Pixels has pointed out, the 14's didn't really work anywhere. Indeed, (and I'll dig it out and scan it, if I can find it).... I came across a Class 14 sitting in an NCB yard (as EP says) way back in 1972 as I was wondering around taking pictures for my college dissertation about the decline of coal mining in the North East.

So any suggestions appreciated.

In relation to my new maroon Stove R, same thing..... what do I run it with? Apparently they ceased being connected to passenger trains in 1959?

Britains Model Trains 2014 suggests Ivatt 2 MT, Fairburn Tank, Black 5, class 24/25/26/27, Class 31, and Class 37, as "locos it should work with".

They're cute. What vintage would they be, then?

According to the seller he bought them in Germany in 1982  :goggleeyes:

I have not had time to give them a run yet but when I took each out of the box they are as new.
I did try the loco on some track and it will benefit from a sparse drop of oil and a good running in  :thumbsup:

The seller also included an oval of track and the Minitrix controller which was not in the sale, so I was given those free of charge which was very generous of him.

cheers John.

Cool. Looking at them, I would have guessed early Eighties. Canny buy!

That IS nice. Like the road name, too. One of my favourite American lines.  :thumbsup:

The BN set looks great and is such a striking livery, I have the same set but with the E8 but I think I prefer the F3's.

I actually sold my E8 about a year ago as I couldn't seem to find a B unit or reasonably priced cars to go with it. Had given up hope and bingo. The price was good too - $220 inc P&P which for full DCC through out I can't fault.
