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

Love that class 60  :heart2:

Might have to look into the custom avenue as I want a petroleum sector loco and can't find one to suit.

@gavin_t

Did you have a specific number in mind? Or just a petroleum livery 60?

Farish did 60054 “Charles Babbage” in these colours as part of their first batch (which means it’s DCC solder tabs rather than sockets).

Farish code 371-354.

I got lucky on Monday, managed to back this lovely model - DRS Pride of Crewe Class 57 for a mere £62 delivered. :)

Just a petroleum 60 really as that would fit with my theme. As there is a refinery local to the area I am basing my early 90's layout on.
Have seen that one on ebay. Need to get in contact with someone to quote on a conversion as I don't trust my soldering skills for anything that delicate!  :-[ :NGF: Was wondering if anyone did a DCC ready one but I don't think they do.
What generation is your 60?

Hi Gavin

So of my four class 60, it seems I have two “first generation” ones (DCC solder tabs), these being the previously mentioned Charles Babbage and a Load Haul (“Swindon Dalesman”) black / orange one.

The other two are re-numbers of Farish Coal sector  371-357 Class 60 60057 'Adam Smith' locos (one kept as coal, one now 60001 as shown above). According to Hattons, these are both DCC socket locos.

I don’t use DCC so haven’t even had the bodies off these!

Useful info thanks
If easy to convert I am happy with either if the bodies and details all match the one you posted.

My Class 50 has eventually arrived it was well worth the wait, it is a smooth runner, highly detailed, probably the best loco put out by Dapol in n.

New arrivals:



Learned that Dapol coaches don't like to stay coupled to Graham Farish locomotives...think coupler height might have something to do with it?

Yes, sometimes I end up putting a farish coach between them!

A tiny bit of TACKYWAX from Deluxe Materials is very good at stopping uncoupling problems .

My new acquisition is the new Atlas SD60E in the Norfolk Southern "Veterans" livery.  It's a great loco, nice and quiet, very detailed.  Only thing I find is that it has very dim lights at the cab end.

I would probably try to find a set of Farish coaches today if I could get them here fast enough. Thinking of going back on to Hattons and seeing what Dapol offerings they have that might go with those coaches. It all sounds a little crazy, I know, but I'm trying to have a passenger train/freight train on the two mains on my layout when family will most likely see it next Thursday. Hattons is the only one that could get something here before Thursday if I order it today or tomorrow.
