Just received this lovely bran new Bachmann GWR Type 64xx 0-6-0PT. Runs beautifully and was 25% off the usual price out here. Just a lucky buy on EBAY is all I can say.

Hello Malcolm......Nice Pannier but one question. I have never seen one which has been lined before except for the London Transport ones used for maintenance work and taking rubbish to the tip. I am interested if you can confirm if some did have lining.
This is a type 64XX which while similar in appearance to the type 57xx is actually a smaller beast. It sort of supports the cliche that all GWR locomotives look the same.

Got this one out of Canada. Always a gamble on these vintage pieces, but this charming Triang stuttered to life and soon ran like a charm.

Finally bagged me a DMU, a beautiful Lima set that runs splendidly. Courtesy of Mountain Goat. Featured in "Where's Nessie," under "Henley."

Nice one John - I was after Hornby 222 Squadron on ebay this week - it was a light hearted effort though - I put a bid in with a few seconds to go, and was outbid by £2 - there will be others. Barry

Treat to myself for Christmas...…..a Heljan Class 23 Baby Deltic……..first Green Diesel to join my fleet and destined to operate out of the forthcoming Railway Heritage Centre on my layout...…….nice little loco, which showed a rapid turn of pace when I gave it a quick test on the track earlier...….doesn't seem to have working lights so will need to look into that, but it might be to do with the cheap 8 pin decoder I had kicking around.

Should have working lights. Mine has a lit headcode at one end and red lights at the other on DC.

I am not laughing at you. I have two of them on my Sovereign Street layout.. They are great runners.
