My haul from TINGS...


Images © Mark Adedeji, on Flickr

The pocket-wagon was a total fluke. I'd intended to buy some bulktainers from the RevolutioN stand, but they were busy on my first stop. When I got to the C=Rail stand, there was a buy ten get the cheapest free offer on, so I had to take advantage. As I was about to leave, I asked when the pocket-wagons might be available. "What these(!)?" came the reply. I think 50 were express freighted over, ahead of the bulk of production. Well it would've been rude not to take one. I did leave some for everybody else. :D

I picked up this lovely Black 5 at TINGS at the weekend. It was a great piece of luck - I was hoping to find an early Crest Black 5 but the only ones I could find were a heavy-weathered one at TMC for £140 or a dodgy Glasgow Highlander at the Brass parts stand. I went and had a coffee and then decided to brave Anoraks Anonymous, which had been absolutely mobbed earlier. After patiently waiting to get to the front I had a rummage and there it was, priced at £79! I snapped it up instantly. I assume it's second hand but it's as new, all spare parts still in the bag.

Pleased to say it runs beautifully too.

4 x Blue Spot fish vans from Hattons



Huge thanks to @exmouthcraig who supplied the last 2 vans I needed so I now have 6 with differing running numbers. Apologies for slightly out of focus camera work but my eyes don't function too well first thing :-[

I'm also embarrassed by the layout needing a good vacuum. Hookey fur gets everywhere :-[

Expensive time for me, Bought 2 of the new Class 50's...



As they run so nicely I then decided to buy another one to re-number, and treated myself to a small rake of the new VEA Vanwides  :help: My excuse is I haven't bought any trains for quite a while  ;)







Cheers, Stu

Nowt wrong with your eyes. :goggleeyes: There's no visible brand on the front - Bob's missing an obvious marketing trick there!

They are N-Train 3D printed kits. I got an arctic-tanker (top) and a Mercedes Citaro single-decker bus (bottom).
