Yep, another eBay buy. If you pick the right battles then you can often win a good loco at a good price. This one seems to be virtually new (or very well cared-for), so I'm especially pleased with it. Once I've finished a loco kit and a few other jobs at the top of the list then I can get down to detailing the first of my second-hand locos.

Looking good, glad she's gone to a good home and will actually get some use.

Plus it really wouldn't look right on my layout infront of a rake if intercity mark3s  :confused1:

These Farish 'Warships' are lovely models. Probably the smoothest, quietest models I own (I have two).

Even if you don't weather them (which I think really helps!) the light-coloured cab interior looks much better if you stick a model train driver in there! Any old seated figure will do, if you cut his (or her???) legs off.

Cheers, NeMo

Hell Everyone I hope you have all had a good week, I am just about to take Delivery of one of these I know it is not rolling stock But It Does DC and DCC.
Electrak Clean 111
 
Miniatronics’ ELECTRAK CLEAN lll - N, HO, Z and S scale, also 2 rail O scale , We heard your requests for a unit that could be housed in a box rather than a car. The third version of the Electrak Clean is housed in a box that sits track side. The same electronic generator powering the PEC2-1 is the main power house for the PEC3-1. This unit has the same cleaning power and is completely assembled, and operates from an included 12 VDC power source. Place an engine on the tracks and begin the cleaning process. Greatest results can be achieved by cleaning tracks section by section up to a maximum of 80 feet. The unit is easily moved to the next section. Using electrostatic impulses, Miniatronics’ Electrak Clean III is the most effective and easiest way to keep your tracks clean! Plus, it will not damage tracks (it just cleans them!) The Electrak Clean is compatible with DCC. Now there is no need for abrasives, chemicals, rollers or pads. State of the art electronics are contained in the Electrak Clean lll. Our tests indicate that the residue left can be picked up by using a cloth and simply wiping the wheels down of the engine. You may prefer using an inexpensive cleaning car with a dry roller following your engine as the final step in the cleaning process. Average cleaning time is approximately 20-30 minutes for a 4 X 8 layout. Don’t let grime or dirt slow down your trains!

Best Regards

Babs

Beautiful locos Pete and NPN. I'm waiting eagerly for my Union Mills price list to arrive in the mail...and one of those Warships will be mine someday!

In the meantime...this came in the mail today. I have her B&O cousin, but needed some Chessie locos. I love these Life Like SW9/1200 Switchers. They are pretty little things and run nicely.

Great photo, was that an Ebay buy? You can't have too many UM locos.

If I'm not mistaken, the latest price list is in the new edition of the N Gauge Journal. I was drooling over it the other day...

Wot bay platform? I know me eyesight's gettin' bad, but..... oh of course! It hasn't been built yet!  :D

They are lovely locos though, even though I bust two buffers off mine getting it out of the box. I found one of them, but the other is off in Lady Gaga land somewhere. Will Farish be able to supply a replacement? On thinking again about that, getting a part that is about 2mm big shipped to Australia is probably dumb thinking. Ah well.

Farish Jinty arrives tomorrow. It's not going to be as smooth a runner nor as silent as my maroon Farish Warship - but once you have one of those other than a Farish 24 (or two in my case) and a Dapol 22 the only way is down. TOWID?

You may well be in for a shock - it's very smooth and very quiet :thumbsup:

The bay platform is actually the other side of the loco, George.
It's just a thin extension of the main platform. :D

My latest purchase is the new Dapol Pannier Tank (5764) in Great Western Green, which was purchased today. Also shown in the picture is a Dapol Pannier Tank (8762) in GWR Green, which was purchased last month. Showing both of them in these photos because I never posted when I bought the first Pannier, and it also compares the differences with the cab on each class.
The 'Great Western' one is a slightly darker shade of green than the 'GWR' one. Was noticeable as soon as I took them both out the boxes and placed them beside each other.
