    No pictures im afraid, but I had a jolly time with the model engineers this afternoon running trains in a local garden :D I was able to give the Hymek a good run (its still OF) and we were running out of wagons to put on the back :lol: that loco could pull a house down, very impressive.
    Mind you its not good for me, as each time i go there, i want a garden railway. its a great antidote to 'worrying' about little details nobody can see :lol: :lol:

    My local model shop had one of those Class 22s in a while back, all built and painted and just SOOOOO tempting... except the price of course; if I could've persuaded SWMBO that going into arrears on the mortgage was worth it just to own such a model... :shock: :oops: :lol:

    Shame the Fred Phipps stuff is a different scale to gauge one though :?
    The Bachmann G1 brass stuff is also tempting & not that much more expensive than the O gauge stuff............according to Towers sight, Bachmann appear to be dropping the brassworks stuff though :(

    it is 1/32 as opposed to 10mm to the ft there isnt much visible difference and 1/32 is the way ahead, all Slaters new stuff is 1/32, yes, :D I have done all the research.
    when I costed it up the model ends up about the same as JLTRT, what stopped me is the lack of kits, for example there is no decent 16t mineral, and financial commitment to 7mm.
