Recently managed to double the size of the "fleet" with this :



settrack points + 08 + shunting + uncoupling = trouble or challenge ?

Ah well I wanted to start small and learn before attempting something bigger.

I don't think its appropriate to mention "minimuum curve radius" at this point. So I won't.   :)

SWMBO has added to her Wagon collection today with the two red ones being the latest additions.



My replacement 5MT arrived too and is part run in. Lots more rail noise than the WD but just as smooth running.

Very nice. They Farish, or Dapol? I see the Firestone-liveried one in my copy of Britain's Model Trains, so I assume Farish? Nice.

All Dapol.  4 x NCB 4 x BR and a few oddments like the Weavers, British Steel etc.  Duplicating numbers unfortunately but I wanted to get the look of a nice long rake.  I am quite pleased with the results I must say  :D

Yeah, I've just found it in my Britain's Model Trains book. Like an imbecile, I realised that I actually own one, and wrote a review of it last year under rolling stock reviews on this forum!  :doh: It was the weathering that threw me off, honest.  ::) Interesting that the couplings have been weathered, too. Makes them look less obtrusive, I reckon.  :thumbsup:

Yes, they're Farish.  I think one day my OCD will allow me to get a Dapol loco/wagon/coach, especially if Farish don't do an A4 in Blue!  But for now i'm a bit of a Farish fanboy!
