Thankyou Mr Postman…
Had a bumper month so far, this weeks arrivals include:
RfD New 08 for a bargain 42 from my LMS
Pair of ex set TEA tanks for 15 inc post
4x New styke Mk2 aircons and a running class 47/57 chassis for 60 inc post

The 08 and tanks will fit nicely on to Apa Park, the 57 Chassis will be acquiring a 47 body when I can get hold of one and will have a soundchip fitted and I’m not quite sure what to do with the aircons yet, They are too nice to put overlays on (my initial plan) so might have to build a layout set in the 80s to run them on…

I've added a Dapol Class 22 to my collection.  I wasn't that bothered until I discovered a photo of one of the class at Warwick station; meaning they ran in the area where my layout is set.

The model came from a forum member, Chris in Prague, and was exactly as described and turned up exactly when expected.



Also shown is my other recent purchase, a GWR Autocoach number 195.  Normally the coach would run with my GWR Pannier, but I thought I'd exercise Rule 1 for the photo.

In theory for unscrewing the hexagonal bolts holding on the coupling rods, but on mine the heads were too small (or the tool was slightly too big!) so a pair of small pliers worked instead (if you ever need to)

Be careful to lubricate very very very sparingly...

2 packages to come home to today

Super Voyager


Centro Class 150/1
Planning to re-livery the 150 either London Midland or FGW at some point and remove the rapidos from the front and replace with the snow plough/dummy coupling.

Both seem good runners and are in good condition. Just need my XC 170 to turn up tomorrow and I'll be delighted.

First three of a new rake, the two older ones have been really nicely weathered, not too much

Looks great!
Spend as little as possible on what you need so you can spend as much as possible on what you want.
