Nice stuff CC but as for that key; not a clue!  :confused1:

It would be so-o very nice of Dapol if they gave some info on the goodies they supply with their locos!

Still on the 57XX, I'd like to know how they managed to get the sleeve so tight over the acrylic box!

With regards to the Pannier, theres an hexagonal alley key kinda thing in there. Any idea what this is for?

It's to undo the crank pins if you find the need. Handy on some of the tender locos that have traction tyres that will need replacing at some point but IIRC the Pannier doesn't have any.

It looks fine to me Peter and as the seller has a 100% positive feedback I don't think you will have much to worry about  ;)

cheers John.

That looks like a nice little bargain to me. I always did like the Class 45s. I remember them hanging around St Pancras back in the seventies.

At the risk of boring forum members everywhere, here are my most recent acquisitions. It's only a lowly 08 shunter and a couple of crappy wagons, but they are very special to me as I picked them up on my recent trip to the Northern hemisphere and therefore bring back fond memories.

Here is the 08. It is the first weathered model I have bought and I am very happy with it. I made a special detour to Devon and got it at Buffers - a great little shop owned and operated by two lovely crazy ladies who unfortunately were out on the day of my visit. It's a nice little runner, too. Parked in the goods yard at Kirkby Langdale:

Here it is again at Skeggles Water. As can be seen by all the holes in the front, I haven't even thought about putting all the bits on yet.
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
Those way overscale grain-of-wheat bulb signals can be seen - supposedly to be changed to LED ones in the future, but I'm a bit reluctant to do so because (a) they are automated and work well, and (b) they have a 1950s look to them that I like.

Here is the grain wagon I picked up from Hattons when I visited an old college mate who lives very close to the place. It is also a weathered model.

Next - an intruder!! I spent a wonderful morning at Miniature Wonderland in Hamburg, Germany, so I had to bring back a souvenir, didn't I. Anyway, Rule 1.....

So here are my humble purchases together on Troutbeck bridge:

Finally,here is another loco that is special to me - a Poole 08 sent to Australia as a gift from my late mother back in 1987. It is still a good little performer once it warms up. However,I have included it to show the differences between it and the latest version.

Immediately obvious is the lack of outside frames on the old model. However, I am of the opinion that the body work isn't all that bad - but I am looking at it through rose-coloured glasses, I suppose. There is some very fine white lettering on the sides of it!

Apologies if I have sent folk to sleep! Toodle loo, George.

Good pictures George and your locos look good in that setting  :thumbsup:

I think the Miniature Wonderland addition is a nice reminder of your whistle stop tour and I hope it will bring back happy memories for you  ;)

cheers John.

Really nice little collection George, and like me there is so much associated with a piece that is more important than the item.

Nice pics, George.

Glad you were able to do some proper shopping while you were 'up here'.
