Bought the new Kato ICE 4.

Nice, it's a set that's on my list.  Maybe post it in the equivalent thread for Continental stuff?

So I've been slowly collecting stock for my planned layout, set in mid-Wales. Well that's the theory anyway. In practice I keep going 'off script'!

Of course now I'm going to need a train for it to pull, which could be a challenge. Best bet is probably to look out for old Grafar 4 wheel coaches in S&D livery - but they seem to go for silly money (what were they made out of - solid gold?)

So what looks to be 2x suitable 4 wheel coaches have just gone up for sale on the Facebook N’porium group.

Here are Thomas, Diesel, and Percy, the latest additions to Deadwood's locomotive fleet. A gift from my friend, Veronica. I'm round the Moon with them.

I see those silos lurking unfinished in the background, there, Ian!  ;)

Strange that - @wookie had three similar locos from UM too.
Good news for Colin at Union Mills :)

I'm well pleased. I'm sure @wookie is as well.

The Dukedog box contained a sheet warning that the width had been reduced as far as physically possible and modellers should not try to take it any further. I haven't built any platforms yet, but will have to take that into account.

Very nice little loco stud there. As you say, watch the platforms!  :thumbsup:

A couple of new purchases, first up is DRS 66417 (seen here on a rake of GNER mkIVs)



Next up is Peak 44008, this was described as clicking, haven’t taken it apart yet but the description points to split gears.



Not sure if these two are easy or even possible to DCC, info on both road numbers on the forums seem to be thin on the ground.

The third purchase is US based and is posted in the relevant American thread.

Revolutions class 321 needs your help, let’s make it happen.
