That Queen Mary looks great.

I'm presuming the Britannia is Minitrix - glad to hear it goes. Wish my old Minitrix stuff would.

My NGS EWS Queen Mary Brake arrived today, it looks so regal!



Can't wait to hook it up (probably incorrectly) to my Seacow & OCA mixed rake.


Always liked the look  of these Queen   Mary  wagons but think they wont fit in with my era  (steam   transition  late  60's) though  the Bauxite ones may ? 


I bought a DVD at the Preston Exhibition at the weekend


It shows a QM Brakevan, in bauxite,......in the late 60's,........In Lancashire  :claphappy:

Look out wallet  >:D  :D

I'd love to show my latest purchase that arrived today but hit a bit of a problem. Ordered a green Class 08, the box came and label said Class 08, but inside was a 03. Maybe next time!

Nevertheless the 03 is a nice little loco. Are you keeping it, or sending it back?

Do these count as rolling stock?

Whether they do or not, they arrived this morning.  They are Minimetals and I am very happy with them  ;)



cheers John.

Here's mine...



Dapol Eastern Region Blue/Grey HST. Don't ever remember them being this clean, though the ER sets were better kept than their Western counterparts.

If you are meaning my Minimetal cars, then yes they are n scale more than likely 1:160.
They are very small but just like the bus, the wheels go round and round  :D
