Re: They don't make them like they used to....

I chased Duchess around on saturday up Shap & down the S&C, i also followed her earlier this year on the north Wales coastline & that wartime black with maroon lining on the footplate is awsome i really like that livery although Br brunswick green would just do it for me :D

Re: Bachmann 2011 Products wishlist

Looking at the current releases forth coming from Bachmann i think personally the class 185 transpennie dmu isnt far away because it is seen on both the east 7 west coast & is fairly widespread in the northern part of the country which is a likely candidate & it certainly gets my vote :lol: ...
