I got an 8F for my super prototypical 70s/80s layout

A most excellent 30th birthday present from Mrs d-a-n, along with some easi-shunts, some tacky wax and a Peco Butterley Steel wagon kit to have an experiment with (add NEM pocket, try my wagon/weathing skills out and maybe refit it temporarily with metal wheels from another wagon.)

OINVU!

Just what I would like!

Added another Dapol Pannier to the fleet.  This time an 87xx in GWR green.  Bit of a Rule 1 purchase but I 'needed' something to run with the GWR wagons I've acquired.  Although some locos towards the end of steam (my usual era) were repainted into pre-nationalisation liveries I think, so it isn't necessarily out of place for a 1960s layout.

With that name on them, I couldn't resist.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

I agree. I model the same period, but when the train looks that good, bring on Rule 1.

Yep, they've all had their compulsory round-and-round-in-circles-for-twenty-minutes railway baptism  :D

My two latest additions, a repainted Mintrix Britannia which is the chassis donor for my Streamlined Duchess of Hamilton
And a 90 in Distribution livery.

Whoever did the repaint did a pretty good job on it - that's a good shade for the green. However you were after it for the chassis, it seems. Like to see the Duchess when finished!  :thumbsup:

Indeed, I just wish he/she hadn't painted the wheels and rods etc that interesting shade of... I'm not sure what it is to be honest...

I think it's supposed to be rust? Strangely enough, from your photo I don't think it looks too bad. You'll have to do something about it for your streamliner, though! Can't have rusty wheels on that!  ;D

In the May 2005 issue of "Steam World" there is a photo of ex-GWR pannier tank no. 7428 still in GWR livery in March 1959.

The photo was taken at Trawsfynndd (?) which means "the valley that time forgot" in Welsh.

Picked up a lovely little Southern Railway runner. She goes like a dream, so a typical Union Mills loco. It needs a bit more detailing, but I'll get around to that in time:

Great photo, was that an Ebay buy? You can't have too many UM locos.
