If they're all going to be like this one from now on (the new Farish Steamers) then I can see me buying a few more. There isn't the slightest hint of movement in the body, it just glides along with just the sound of the rails the only thing you can here.

Hopefully my replacement 5MT will be similat, as the first one turned out to be a bit of a mare.

I'm just happy I've got three perfect loco's now as my 37 was begining to feel lonely.

You won't regret it, it's comparable to the WD for running quality and like the WD I haven't had to touch it out of the box.

It's run in now so tomorrow I'll test haulage from what I've read I won't be disappointed.

It's certainly looking good now.  After a couple of episode's I now have 4 perfectly functional loco's that are as Farish intended, they run right, look right and sound right, 3 of these 4 were shop purchases which helped end the endless game of parcel tennis.

I would like to thank one member on here (sorry can't remember who) who said that it would pay to go to a shop and view loco's in the flesh before purchasing.  This advice has been invaluable.  It especially helps when it comes to little things that an email or phone call wont cover. 

For example when I returned my Class 24 due to light failure, I picked up the new one, got it home and run it in.  About 3 days later I noticed that there was a blemish in the paintwork.  So, fearing i'd be labelled as a nutter, I went back to the shop and asked if the body could be swapped over from the one I had previously.  This wasn't an issue and I went home happy and with my dignity/sanity intact!

Great to hear your faith has been fully restored in N Gauge Steve after such a bad run of luck. :thumbsup:
Sounds like you have found a shop were the proprietor seems willing to help if things aren't as they should be :thumbsup:

Yeah, it helps.

It work's both ways too as I came away with a Maroon Mk1 BSK due to my satisfaction at the good service I had received over the CL24.

Now you're gettin' the hang of it, stevieboy!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Nothing wrong with posting comparison pics, either. It's good to see how things have improved. When I get the time I'll post some of my old blood and custard Mk 1s - they're not even the right colour!!!

Keep up the good work -Green is Go!
I know they're not latest purchases, but in relation to the my quote above, here are my ancient Mk1s - some are crimson & cream, others maroon & cream!!
