If it doesn't have a face it doesn't get on my layout.

Rub what you like when you like just have fun and thumb your nose at the rivet counters ;)

Remember this one and you'll will be fine to run whatever you want.

Uh wow, I laughed at that one too.

Innocent typo ("n" and "b" are right next to each other), but still.

I run what ever I want. Although I'm partial to green diesel, many classes not found in the same areas can be found running on my layout sometimes at the same time. It's the same with my steam stock, a mix of big four and BR. You'll quite often find a Rebuilt Royal Scot in BR lined black at the head of some Gresley teaks. :D

My planned layout will be set in 1950s - 60s Ireland as there was still steam about. I have managed to accumulate three Jintys, one of which was cobbled together from bits and is now respendent in Northern Ireland NCC livery. I plan to paint one of the others in a similar way but with an Ulster Transport Authority crest on the tanks. The third I'll leave alone - it's in LMS weathered livery and will do as it is. The Jintys never made it south of the Border but they'll be shunting the yard in my layout whilst the Sunday excursion to Rosslare sits waiting for the Dublin train to enter the up line. The Dublin train will be a rake of Triang carriages repainted in brown and black drawn by two 141 locos which will bear identical numbers as I don't want to mess about with them.

When both trains have departed a train of LMS coaches hauled by a Duchess will put in an appearance; this will be followed by a GWR Saint with a train for Fishguard. This train will have to wait in the down side of the platform for an Arriva Trains 150 to make its way from Rosslare to Dublin.

The fat controller would soon be a very thin one if he spent a few days on my railway...

Thats nothing, I have ran my Heljan Class 23 Baby Deltic with LNER Teaks ;). Surprisingly though, it seems to fit in well with them.

Well my layout will be SR based but i be running 70's through to modern DMU's and EMU's with a few diseles thrown in. Now i am pretty sure you never see a Arriva Wales class 150 in Kent but i am running one on my layout and i dont care. If it looks good and fits in my era i get it, as the title says "it's my railway".

IN PROGRESS
"Daunton" oo gauge end to end Branchline, using DMU's and EMU's in different eras and regions. But general theme would be Kent area with some stations with the SR era colour. Be Starting Board 1 this week I at a time.

I think the word "preserved line" or "heritage railway" comes into mind. That or running steam/diesel specials when you get the urge.

I said 'a little bit of what you like' to the missus, she used it against me in court.......

Absolutely and a word of advice don't let the purists get you down with their belittling opinions and comments which so often get thrown in my direction.

Show last year, guy in the crowd louldly told one of our operators the engine could not go from the headshunt into the yard as there was no signalling allowing this. The operator pointed to the ground signal next to the signal box giving it permission. He quickly disappeared off quietly.
