How does it run? Quirky looking, but could find its way into my layout!

Hmmm,as I have only seen a class 70 once in the flesh,or metal,when it came through Doncaster whilst I was parked up,I thought at that time,what a truely,monstrously,catastrophically ugly thing it was.

Funny thing is,that when I saw it at a show,York I think,my mind started to change a bit.I'm now thinking its ugliness is charming.I once owned an MG Maestro so I know ugliness and that car was charm personified,well,it was to me anyway.

Anyway,as with the class 66's,I'm now thinking that perhaps I may at some point buy one and a 66.At this moment in time though,I'm going to continue buying sound decoders and DCC soundamabobbing the loco's,dmu's and hst's that I already have.I'm doing my class 47 at the moment,its much easier than the class 24,then a class 20 is up next.

With Wigan only a few weeks away,I have no new loco's on my to buy list so I guess a little bit of pcb with some bits on and wires attached is what I'll be coming home with,or two!!

Certain kinds of more dangerous nuclear waste (eg from the submarine reactor cores) would be accompanied by other vehicles too - DRS have support vehicles for this when moving sone MOD flasks.

Which I hadn't realised was the DRS Mark 2 vehicle Farish were doing. Picture at

From a month ago:



From a couple of weeks ago:

Graham Farish Class 42 Warship and two Mk1 coaches (Second Open in Carmine/Cream and First Open Chocolate/Cream) - I do love the Mk1 coaches - both with "W" prefix running numbers.







I also picked up two more Chocolate and Cream Mk1 coaches at Railex, which I need to photograph.
