Hello all

So a bit late as I couldn’t get the forum to accept photos direct from my phone (I am sure it was related to the recent upgrade and covered elsewhere on the forum), but here are my latest bits:

Firstly, a Farish “Minimodal” 33, which was smuggled under my nose by my in-laws.

It arrived having had its last two digits removed by a previous owner, but otherwise in good nick and a great runner.

I thus took the opportunity to undertake my first ever re-number. This, with the aid of some T-cut and some Fox numbers was partially completed at the Calne MRS:



I had to take all the remaining white numbers off to start with as the replacement DRS set I obtained was a fraction smaller.

I need to do the very small repeaters on the nose ends now  :worried:, but have this very evening won somthing on eBay that should provide motivation....

Also, purchased at Calne itself, where a rather nice Farish lorry and the correct BDA to get me nearer finishing a recreation of a Welsh Nuke train I found a photo of a few years back. Just need another example of the same BDA and Farish to hurry up with their refurbished 31s!

And many more of them, (I meant birthdays not carriages!).

Thank you. Got to get Thetford Road started again now that we have moved. Also got to get some brave pills to have a go at fitting a sound chip to the class 40

Ay up there Dickydcc. Have just seen this thread. How've you got on with your 40 and the sound decoder?
I'm dipping a toe in the same water before long so your experiences awaited with interest.

I'm thinking about sending it to TMC, as they can get name plates made up.I was thinking of having it named in honour of my dad. Along with yellow warning panels, detailing & a bit of weathering. Happy to let you know how it works out though.
