The problem is, if it says N-Train on the front of the pack then all everyone sees is that at a show. The packaging is there to say what the contents are. :)

My latest purchase, couldn't resist a class 27 to accompany my class 25.

Then there's Merlin, which I think looks pretty cool.

And the massive class 60, how long?



They're far too clean, I'll fix that! :D

If you’re my wife and you’re reading then; look darling, remember that lovely red shunter I had? Well I painted it black using things I already owned and it didn’t cost me a penny!



That’s all. No need to read any further...


















Psst. If anyone else is reading then look what I bought;





It’s not running too well but that’s for another day! I’ve also got my eye on a maroon coloured one. Soon I’ll have a fleet  8)

They are very cute though. I've got a project at the back of my mind that involves bashing one in to something else.

It's not often one gets to purchase a locomotive named after a gentleman whose pickled brain one has previously encountered (in the Science Museum in London if anyone is taking notes, the pickled brain that is):

Moreover I might be related to the bloke in question, probably via his father or grandfather, though evidence is circumstantial - my great grandmother was a Babbage and records via her father (a street sweeper!) go back to a street in London which is also associated with the more famous Babbage line.
