Re: Bachmann 32-850NRM 9F comments sought

I probably won't do that unless it irks me enough to be honest Bigmet. I'm not one for 'cutting bits off' :shock: :lol: The loco arrived today, although ordered last Tuesday, it wasn't sent until yesterday. Bit naff for the £7.50 delivery charge. :roll: Anywho... I've already done the checks you men...

Re: Bachmann 32-850NRM 9F comments sought

Thanks Bigmet. All good suggestions there. :) It hasn't arrived as yet and my running in circle is 2nd and 3rd radius but I usually use just the 3rd radius to run new locos in. I will definitely give it a good inspection before running, even if it is just to gaze at the amazing engineering. :D Off t...

Re: Renovaters Gallery...Steam NG

I've never really looked into narrow gauge railways. There's some very interesting and characterful loco's. :)
Thanks for posting them.

Re: Bachmann 32-850NRM 9F comments sought

Many thanks to all for the responses. :) After much contemplation, pontification and deliberation I have chosen the NRM version and it is on it's way to me as a birthday gift. As all the first releases of the Hornby versions are sold out on pre-order I'd have to wait even longer for another batch to...

Re: Bachmann 32-850NRM 9F comments sought

Funny enough Bigmet, none of the above. The only reason is because I'm modelling the Western region (with broad artistic license :D ) and it would be nice to see it as a decorated model beyond the CAD drawings. To be honest I wasn't even aware of different tender designs on loco's until recently. :l...

Re: Electrical connections between coaches

I am aware of couplings with built in electrical connections, but the cost is prohibitive for the number of coaches involved If your running DCC you can pick up power direct from the track using DCC Concepts axle mounted pick-up springs, eliminating the connections between coaches. They do work on ...

Re: Bachmann 32-850NRM 9F comments sought

I'd be interested to see the BR1G tender painted as it states – the preferred tender of the western region. I wonder how long it will be to see painted samples? One thing that could seal the deal is something like smokebox lighting but I cannot see it mentioned on either of the models nor any mentio...

Re: Bachmann 32-850NRM 9F comments sought

Many thanks members for the replies so far. :) Hmmm decisions decisions. I definitely want a green version but I am a ways off from buying it yet so the Hornby versions may be released at time of purchase as they are still more than a year away. I'd like to see a painted version to see how it stands...

Re: Bachmann 32-850NRM 9F comments sought

Are these the Hornby ones you mention Bigmet, specifically R3821?
https://www.hattons.co.uk/newsdetail.aspx?id=682

"R3821 Sold out on pre-order"
Are they Larger flanged wheels as it is marked as Triang-Hornby?
Thanks

Bachmann 32-850NRM 9F comments sought

The final loco I'd like to add to my fleet is a 9F I've seen the Bachmann 32-850NRM BR Standard Class 9F and wondered if any members own or have comments on it. http://www.locomotionmodels.com/exclusive-models/steam-locomotives/class-9f-evening-star-92220.htm I think the model looks superb with the ...
