Went down to the local shop for some spare coupling springs, and hidden in the bottom of the display cabinet were these:



Ooh, you've got Dogfish! I said.  :bounce: It's not catching is it? was the reply...

Apparently he has some more 'in the back room' - when I find how many more I can fit in, I'll go back for more...

That's a nice looking rake of coaches.

I have a rake of maroon Minitrix Gresleys myself, they really are lovely models and were so far ahead of anything else when by Minitrix introduced them in the late 80s.

In several areas they are considerably better than the Dapol ones - like having the bogies in the right place.

I've been getting on modifying my class 45 peak & couldn't resist buying a couple more to add to the fleet :-[


They will also be modified as some point when they've been run in  >:D
also bought 4 Dapol unpainted 21T wagons to have a go at.

cheers, Stu. :)

Just checking back... I think I omitted to post my rolling stock purchases at the Weston-super-Mare show.



The Mark 1 Pullmans will tide me over until *someone* does some decent 1924- or 1951-style ones...

Shouldn't it be resting on a pile of bricks? ;)  Joking aside, it looks good so far.

I'm as bad as you, Stu, but for me it's Fowler 4Fs. I seem to have collected five of them already, but they do look great when running double headers, so I think it's worth it. ;)

All the very best

Picked these beasts up today, only half run in but pretty good so far. As long as they run ok on DCC I may allow them to join my perfect WD and J39. 5MT is excellent. Fairburn is a superb model, just needs to loosen up a touch I think. Special thanks to Ollie for picking them out for me, and for almost tempting me with a Dapol Pannier!
