Re: Monmouthshire Bank Locomotive Inspection & Stabling Point

Good Afternoon, Just one new arrival to report 60048 Eastern in EWS colours equipped with Sound. The weathering is a tad to heavy for my liking so will need toning down a little plus it might be renumber and back dated into a EW&S locomotive. http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/3305/dsc06225wk.jp...

Re: My Model Railway - 1990-2011 TMD (In the Making)

Funny you should say that :D a Two Tone Grey with Orange Flashers and Loadhaul brandings will arrive this year if all goes to plan. The problem is finding suitable two tone grey 60's on ebay at decent pricess ! Fresh from Hornby/Shops are near £80 !
