A two-for-one here! Firstly, one of the limited edition Dapol rail blue 86s from C&M Models in Carlisle. Not put the plates on yet, but this one is 'City of Carlisle'. It's a lovely model, and really sends me back to weekend visits to the shed at Willesden (back in the day when the only health & safety was the depot manager telling me not to walk onto the mainline!).

Second purchase was a group of four weathered 'Silver Bullet' china clay wagons from NGF member Matt-P. Good price, prompt delivery, and if anyone is tempted, he tells me he still has two wagons left!

Cheers, NeMo

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.

Here we go. A 'how to' on replacing split gears. It might take a while to complete as I'm clueless myself at the moment.  :D

Newest arrival on depot at Thornbridge. TMC limited edition 37027 at a bargain 75 quid posted.  :D

Beautiful model, livery very well applied and runs very well out of the box.

Will be even better once run in.

Unboxed today: Four Staniers and ten iron ore tipplers.  The coaches mean I've now got a rake of ten, which should look nice behind my prototype Deltic.  The tipplers, on the other hand, mean I'd better get a move on as that makes a 40 wagon rake to go behind a Farish WD 2-8-0 - but only two are weathered so far!

As one magazine said, it's a black tube on wheels:



Haulage is superb, 5.4m of train without a slip from standstill!

I went to my first show on Saturday, and all I came back with was this (and a nice load of photos of some great N Gauge layouts):

It's not often that I buy a brand new locomotive, but given that my layout is set in the 1960s WR I couldn't resist the Farish Westerns on sale for 49 at Hattons recently! It's a totally flawless runner and though not as accurate as the Dapol Western should still look decent after some weathering and detail painting. I'm also intending to rename/renumber it to D1069 Western Vanguard using the etched plates from an old Fleetline kit.




This LNER Sentinel steam railcar (Langley metal kit on an Atlas US chassis) is definitely a case of "Rule 1" but it's a prototype I really like, and I paid less (about 25 on eBay) for the complete model than a new kit would cost from Langley. It's actually a very nicely detailed model especially compared to other Langley loco kits - the moulding is very sharp and fine and it even has seperately moulded roof vents. It will eventually get a full repaint and some light weathering, but the existing paint job is not too bad so this isn't a priority.
It's not exactly at home on ex-GWR and LSWR rails and I've had serious thoughts of building a LNER branch line micro-layout to give me something to run it on!

A kato EH500 loco - a bargain (67) new at Wheels of Steel ( bond st ) - C.London's last train shop! ( also has Ebay shop - not so many bargains,)





I've fitted a rapido coupler on one end  - the background wagon demonstrates that this is a rule 1 layout!

A few more additions, I really should stop buying trains  :goggleeyes:.



Class 08 in BR Green and a Dapol Pannier in BR Black. I've also got an 03 in BR Green but he's camera shy  :camera:.

and a few wagons that need to be weathered.....



With regards to the Pannier, theres an hexagonal alley key kinda thing in there. Any idea what this is for?
