Being the superstitious type I now dare not show a loco on here until it's been owned a few days, but anyway, here it is 5MT Mk4. Special thanks to Ollie for his patience!

They are very good. I have never heard of Minimetals. Is it an American firm?

It is, I have a few of their models and they are all excellent.

Oooh, yes. They are nice. And that's a lovely loco, stevieboy, lovely colour, too! After your bad experiences with the Class 14, I don't blame you for holding off a few days!

Hi Bealman   as John  says they are great models  i   have several   of their turcks similar to the ones John has with  some of  the same era but with trailers if i  can find them  i'll take a couple of snaps   ;)   

Also  nice if you can finds  them  are Ertl's Dick  Tracy cars i  managed to get a set of four for  around  4.50  although they can command a premium  at times.

The Queen Mary's are 19.95.  They're lovely runners!  I have a bauxite which will be repainted, plus a CE Dutch and BR Olive.

As Tank says, 19.95 plus 4.00 p&p.

Hoping to test the running tonight but an initial roll showed that they go forever!

Picked up these two nice little locos today for $50au - 35GBP each, I was told that they are old bodies on newer mechanisms, regardless they came with a 3 month refund repair or replace warranty  :thumbsup:

Very quiet and smooth running with good slow speed control  :thumbsup:

Keep on Smiling
Dave.

I'll say you have, Dave! Top buy. Impeccable photography too, as usual. Green is the colour! I notice you've changed your profile picture too.  :thumbsup:

Four intermodal wagons for 40 at huntingdon show, not a bad price to run behind my newly repaired 66

Bit modern for me, but looks like you got a good deal. What make are they, please? Good pic, too - the camera angle gives an impression of power. I can quite imagine that train powering on through there.  :thumbsup:
