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.
