Here's the eBay-sourced DP1 on the layout now that I've fixed the split gear problem (for now). This was from the same guy who sold @Intercity the Class 70 then sent him a message telling him how cheap he was for buying it.

The long awaited Dapol Class 86 in BR blue:

and for balance a teensy little GWR kettle and sort-of-matching coach:


Dapol 14xx class (1420) by Rail Squid, on Flickr

Needs a bit of attention (I already fixed a moderate case of carpet fibrosis) but luckily appears to be from a "good" 14xx batch and basically runs fine, and moreover copes with my inclines.

However one buffer is missing (I didn't notice until after it arrived), anyone know if and where replacements can be sourced?

that looks great, I have to get one of those, as you say ready for the Revolution MK5's albeit the whole train will be a rule 1.

I got the TPE 68 last week from the Bure Valley Railway shop for a very good price. Beautiful loco, and now 68014 (my other one) has some company :)

My eldest is particularly taken with 68014 as it hauled us back from TINGS last year, after he had driven the model on one of the layouts.

I have been very naughty and bought this on e-bay. Minitrix 9F Evening Star. Runs well. My first attempt at "make an offer" and worked out well!

Just received this used item from Hattons along with 4 DJM Dutch-livery Mermaids which will be repainted. I was hoping that Farish would re-introduce the Crab to their range but doesn't seem to feature in their plans at present.

I, too, would like to see a re-tooled version

The later Farish model with the blackened running gear (like yours) was a huge improvement.

These came in the mail today:


Won them off ebay last week, paid $120 (about 96 pounds) for the lot. There was another lot I tried to win but didn't get.
