Lovely train. I've been tempted close to breaking point myself.

Well here is the traditional Warley purchase photo.



Despite the KFAs being pre-paid for this is still my new spend record.

Strange to think that it was Warley 2015(?) @red_death and @Ben A were running around handing out leaflets for the Pendo project. At the time I wanted it to succeed but didnít seriously think I would own one. Now here I am with one of the very last to be sold (from the original run anyway).

Not only that but I now have (or have on order), examples of many of the subsequent models Revolution have produced. Amazing the difference a few years make.

Further piccys to appear on the relevant threads in due course, plus Warley discussions as they happen.

I'm now waiting for my pack of PFA/KFAs through the post.
Which version of the Pendolino have you got? 9-car? 11-car?

I will be, the layout is taking longer to actually get going than would be liked, I rode up and down the east and west coasts on rovers for years when we had real trains, then spent 10yrs commuting to London from Milton Keynes, Welham Green and Peterborough.

I have the track, baseboards, points all Iím missing is MoJo....

Wow, that's some collection!

Many of those aren't easily available secondhand nowadays especially the 87s and 90s. The "Dutch" 31 as made in Poole is also fairly rare.

Just hope they run OK because Poole-built locos have a tendency to split plastic gears but wheelsets can be replaced from BR Lines and/or Bachmann.

That has to be one of the nicest colour schemes that adorned any rolling stock.  :thumbsup:

I've got one of those Belle's on pre-order, but may to be diplomatic and postpone with it being this time of year. It does look rather lovely though  :hmmm:

I received a Dapol Gresley Buffet from the wife recently for my birthday. Modelling the Southern/Western region, anything LNER usually passes me by, but the Southern Region did draft in a few Gresley Buffets in the 1960s to cover a shortage of their own Buffet stock being converted for BEP/BIG use. Noticing this in an email from Rails I thought it would make an ideal little present. I don't think it's quite the right "diagram" that came down South but it's a smart model non the less and good enough for me to represent this little bit of history on the region.



Being turned on our smaller test layout Watson Lane.



Being put to work on a Waterloo - Exeter passing through Upperton a few hours later. After a few more running session it should be weathered in nicely.

The Gresleys were drafted in to cover for the loss of RB stock being converted for 4REP use.

The Southern Region sucked in quite a bit of stock that other regions were only to glad to get rid of in the form of TSO, BSK, FK and CK types, and even swapped Bulleid SOs for TSOs from the ER and ScR when those regions had ones they wanted but couldn't spare them. The TSO (as DTSO), BSK and FK went to 4TCs and the CK and RB were the centre cars of the 4REPs, the CK being converted to BFK, the guard/brake area in place of the second class compartments. The DMSOs for the REPs were new-builds.
