Hi,

Thanks. It's my first Lifelike loco and its a great little runner. The couplers are attached to the bogies, which have limited movement. So when I was running it around my WPR layout you could hear it running tight when it goes around 1st radius curves. My BAR layout has 2nd radius curves, so it should be ok with those.

It certainly was. Hopefully it won't be too long before I can pick up another BL2. I'm also looking for a cheap NW2 diesel as well.

Tell you what, I'll swap you a set of handkerchiefs and some lurid coloured socks for just a couple of trucks?  :bounce:

OINVU!  Nice collection.  Regards Peter.

Excuse me Bart but did you sell the car, the dog and probably the kids as well?  :o

That's one heck of a start for 2014!

Well done that bloke.  :thumbsup:

Best regards,


Joe

Hey Newport and joe
How's things, yeh there is still some left about maybe 350 coaches and wagons and for joe it's the result of working Xmas and nye resulting in some extra play money wish it was as easy a planting a tree as with about 150 odd iron barks and gums and the back yard I'd have gold plated loco and no I would not weathering them😋
Must admit it was hard choosing with them all sitting on the mess room table at work at one stage a quick add up came to around A$1200 then reality sunk in but I'm happy with what I picked

Hey George
My wife loves the wine but I'm a twinnings fan so since I don't drink don't gamble and don't chase women I have to have something since she suggested I give up the fire engines
