Following on from the post pointing out Hatton's bargains last week, I've been invaded by Class 47s this morning. (Admittedly, the large logo one came from Tings last month). I won't need to buy any 47s for a while...

I've also started a BR Mark 1 coach collection. The first of a few no doubt. Also related to the next layout project are the steel wagon collection that showed up this week. I'm very happy with them!  :)

I got two locos in two days!  The first one was the new Kato SD70ACe in Erie colours, and the second is a Kato AC4400CW in Operation Lifesaver colours.

They both look good Andy but the Erie has the edge for me  :thumbsup:

However I would be happy to have either running round  :D

cheers John.

Nice ones, Andy. I must admit that being a fan of BR Brunswick green livery, that the Erie paint scheme appeals to me. Being Kato, I expect that they will run beautifully too.

They run superbly, as all Katos seem to do.  I also like Brunswick Green and that's what attracted me to the Erie.  Not only that, but the colours are also similar to the livery carried by the Nottingham buses, when I was growing up!

A couple of odd purchases for me, as I plan to model the S&D c.1930 with LMS and SR locos.

The first is a British Railways-era Fowler 4F 0-6-0. As it's a Bachmann China loco, the price was a bargain at 30. I hope to renumber and reletter this, either into its earlier LMS appearance or perhaps as a late S&D 0-6-0, as long as it's the right model for the S&D. I'm sure there's an expert here to tell me if it's not:



The other is a Class 20 with split gears. I plan to fix the gears ( :worried: ) and use the chassis for the Parkwood Models Diesel 10800:



The fact that I've never relettered or replaced split gears before is something that I'm trying not to dwell on for the moment!

I am sure you will get all the help you need here Pete, it would be good if you could do a photo tutorial of replacing the split gears for posterity  ;)

cheers John.

I certainly will, John. It can include all my 'what on earth am I supposed to do next' questions.  :D

I for one, would be very grateful if you'd do a photo "How to" on fixing split gears.  I still haven't plucked up the courage to tackle my Graham Farish scrap yard of locos awaiting repairs.

I didn't even have a scrap yard. I bought this one already crippled. I guess I've been encouraged (egged-on?) by all the more proficient tinkerers and fixers on the forum. Plus I really want to model LMS Diesel 10800, given that there's a perfectly good Parkwood Models body for it. This seemed like the best way. I guess I could start the thread off with a 'what do I need?' question.
