The modern image answer to the Q1. Looks a very nice model but not one I can currently justify.

Arrived today, on of Dapol's new Fruit D vans. This one is in BR Bauxite and after the application of some filth will join a parcels consist.



I've fitted the supplied knuckle couplings to both ends.

Sorry about the photo, iPhone with flash is just too aggressive..

Cheers

EP said it brilliantly. A Q1 in modern guise.

Good one, mate!

I wouldn't say the Q1 is ugly. Brutish maybe, but certainly functional, powerful and handsome. Not all prissy like GWR locos with their girly polished brass and nancy copper embelishments.  ;)

As the Class 70 has made one visit to Thamesport on a Leeds to Thamesport Intermodal - I could (just about) justify one however if N Gauge Bob offers a Class 465 Networker soon, I would spend me money on that...

A Dapol 9F Evening Star.   

Last year Dapol were unable to repair my Dapol 9F Evening Star and gave me a refund.  On Saturday I spotted a new one in the Bournemouth Model Railway Centre shop and got it for 99 (more than I paid for the original but good value for me).  If anyone is interested there is at least one other for sale.

Friends,
My latest requisition:-



In your opinion is a pig in a poke or does it have potential?

It will probably require a complete overhaul, if not that the dust removal should help it's looks greatly!

I bought it because I liked the shape and the colour. 

Want a giggle?  Originally I thought that when adverts had BR in them it meant British Racing green!  The BR Green is not a pleasing colour to my eyes anyway, I am colourblind so a Blue loco is great!

Regards, Peter.

Hi Peter,

Nice looking loco especially in blue - I have a King in "British Racing Green"!  ;)

By today's standards not the most detailed loco but they have a certain charm.  I am sure the new Castle will be a reality check for us though.

My King pulls well and behind a set of chocolate and cream coaches looks good.

Enjoy

Paddy

Everything has potential for improvement even if it starts as a PIAP.

It is an older Poole designed model but appears to be a Chinese produced one so should have finer profile blackened wheels and a better paint finish. You could add details (like handrails, etc) and sort out that malnorished front bogie wheelset/truck.
