Hereís my latest purchase second hand on eBay- a weathered Class47 from Graham Farish.  We ran it on Bob Tidburyís Stonehouse layout. It ran fine for 2 yards and suddenly stopped! After some investigation Bob finally pulled out a 1 cm length of carpet fluff from the gears on one bogie, and now itís running like a dream! Thank you Bob! @Bob Tidbury

A couple more purchases, a VT DVT body (this may get transferred to an IC chassis, depends if I can transfer the lights etc), next one back is the Hobbytrain Tamper, and behind that two Railtrack Autoballasters (just need 2 generator wagons to complete the rake (12 non-gen and 3 gen).

Support crowdfunding - itís the way forward

Revolutions class 321 needs your help, letís make it happen.

These arrived yesterday:

Also got the structure in the background, though I'm not sure 100% if it's what I need. I do like these Graham Farish 3-car sets...I think this is my fourth different one.

Yes, I like them too. I like the wagons having different numbers.

I got my "C" class a couple of weeks ago, but this is the first opportunity I have had to take a photo



I have added real coal and a crew, which just sets off a truly exquisite model that runs as good as it looks. topped off with a Birdcage set, the result is beyond words

Regards,

Alex

Here's another one knocked off my childhood list of OO locos I really wanted but couldn't afford so am now catching up, albeit in N gauge:


Dapol Class-58 (58012) by Rail Squid, on Flickr

I have a soft spot for the 58s because I had my one and only cab ride on one (I believe on March 30th 1985). Hard to find in the "red stripe" Railfreight livery, which is one of my favourites.

More like the chameleon livery - kinda blends in with the background!  :thumbsup:

Looking good. All you need are original freightliners or a rake of haa 's for your 58 to haul
