Saw this on ebay and it was located in the U.S. , so I threw a bid on it for the hell of it and ended up winning it. Was about £80 after shipping.


I really, really need to start buying cars/wagons for the locos I have.

Awesome, you can't beat a Jubilee, I know I've got eight! Funny how location affects price. If that was in the UK it would have been around the £100 Mark.

My first GraFar loco is a 4MT I picked up for about $50 from someone on the other side of the Ohio River from Louisville in Indiana. They didn't know much about the value of N scale stuff. Sadly it's now the engine I need to fix a step on.

@emjaybee Sorry, Mike, but it's a Royal Scot

Didn't know it came to the U.S...that's pretty interesting. Wonder if it passed through Kentucky at any point.


*EDIT* Upon further research, it came to Louisville via the LH&STL, the "Texas" (check my railfanning thread) on October 13th, 1933...though sadly it struck and killed someone at Reed, about 15 miles west of Owensboro.

Got me glasses on now...

...yup, smoke deflectors.

Oh yes, and the number...

 :smackedface:

Same thing applies, if it's lined crimson it costs more than BR  green. That's why I got four Jubilees repainted by yer man Ozymandia's!

 :D

Lovely looking loco.

Ohhhh I am excited tonight.

My first commission from West Coast has arrived back in the fleet.

@37058 (Mr Sutton) has delivered what is suspect is a new Farish model that he has secretly set up an exclusive for.....nah its just his superb skill on display in the form of 60001.





What better way to show it off than “on test”  :D

Have gotten a bunch of things recently, might just be easier to do a list of them instead.
Expanding into three eras so have gotten a mix of things, been selling my OO Gauge stuff to fund it all.
Spoiler: show

Union Mills Adams 0395 Class in BR Black
Union Mills Drummond 700 Class in BR Black
Dapol Class 50 in Network SouthEast (not pictured... forgot)
Farish Capital Connection Pack (also not pictured)

BR MK2A TSO Tourist Second Open Network SouthEast
BR MK1 FK First Corridor Network SouthEast
BR MK1 BSK Brake Second Corridor Network SouthEast
Maunsell Coach SR Brake Van Lined Green
SR 25 Ton 'Pill Box' Brake Van SR Brown
Maunsell Coach Set 394 Lined Green
Peco 5 Plank Wagon SR Brown (not pictured)
Peco Conflat SR Load (not pictured)


This was spread over a couple of months, hoping to make my new layout multi-era to allow more options for running things.

Latest order from Hatton's arrived today. Scamp inspects pretty much anything that comes into the house, which is why he's laying on the free catalog.


I'd only planned on buying scenic details...

I have the Train Formations handbook, it's a useful and interesting reference.  :thumbsup:
Just call me Ted, or Edward... or Ed.

Not at all Paddy

Formally West Coast Resprays, but Anthony has stopped doing full resprays due to it taking up too much time.

He now offers re-numbers and detailing work.

Look for West Coast Models on Facebook / Google

I had new version 100T TEA arrive from Sheffield today, I intend to get a nice long rake of them but wanted to test the water first. I also dug out from the loft my Poole era ones from my Era 8 days to compare them. Obviously the newer version is a much better detailed model, has a little more weight and even the factory weathering isn't too bad.
