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.

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.

My C-Rail KQA's arrived last week.

Here's a few pictures.







And the same wagons, but with different containers.

Minitrix coaches off ebay. The containers says "Made in West Germany", so they're probably older than me!

An impulse buy from the box shifter in my home town, at under £100 it would have been rude not to.  :D

Hi All

Class 33 Dutch, Dapol clearance at £70, seems to be good runner

I thought about that engine but if I read the left side of their site correctly, shipping to the US is like £39.99 (Rest of the World)? Little extreme.

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.

Loved the video Di and yes that does indeed sound great!

Glad your class 50 is running well. Having sent mine back to dapol due to no movement, returned at weekend to run for five minutes and once again no movement. Spoken to dcc supplies , off to them now. dcc supplies busy going to be after Christmas . I just want it to work after £250.00 spent . Steve44

Picked this up off ebay for $150. Seemed like a decent deal, but engine is a lemon it seems. Doesn't want to run too long, and only does if I have the power pack lever almost all the way over.


As much as I've bought from ebay recently, guess I was going to get burned eventually.

Another train set:


I have gotten the Class 47 from the other set running after a bit of work on it and the layout (I think some Unitrack, despite its reliability, is going to be replaced)...so maybe not all is lost.

A couple of rule 1 purchases that I have only just got round to trying together, well outside my normal era, but who cares? I used to see Sir Edward regularly in 1985 when on service crew with 5051 Drysllwyn Castle, and was lucky enough to ride the footplate of the original Evening Star from Oxford to Banbury after we had overhauled it at Didcot, as well as firing it on our site

Alex
