Fanks! (use of your word :D :lol: ) Blaqk
Yes James will be quite the oddity... He'll be re-painted in the near future to look more "scrap-ish" :twisted: eventually he'll end up at the back of a siding somwhere near the sheds.

Thanks! I really like the way it turned out too :D I was thinking 'bout re numbering it too... making it 70027 the same number as the Britannia that once carried the name, but then it wouldn't be realisitc at all. I've got a 70027 smokebox number plate that will be going on the inside of the shed as well :)

Ha ha ha ha, as stated above... James will ultimately "die" :twisted: :twisted:

I look forward to more progress as well :D

NEW THINGS: Ok so i was still looking for spares for the manor. even though i fixed it the front wheelsets were really wobbly looking... so off to ebay i went.... First i found a brand new bachmann manor chassis which i lost :( then i found a for spares Mainline manor. I figured that i could buy the manor and have a set of spares for mine :D the only thing missing is the motor, and so i won it, at £22 which isnt bad for all the parts except the motor. So now i have 7825 Lechlade Manor and 7808 Cookham Manor. Im going to try to blacken 7808s wheels and put the motor in its chassis and just switch the body shells around when one is "in service". Its always good to have a spare :D

and hopefully the B1 along with the talisman coachpack will be shipped this week :)

Mmm...hopefully! I have a good mind to email Hatton's and see how the backlog is getting on! :wink:

It might look better if you renumbered the N!

That Manor repair looks like a fun project to be getting on with! :wink:

Well I've been talking to Graeme about my order, and hes added the coaches and is trying to get them out ASAP! :D

yea but the renumbering is a pain, and i dont wanna mess up the paint job its already got :oops:

The manor will be fun because the bachmann version runs a different (much better) motor than the Mainline one does, I've found a mainline motor on ebay for 99 pence... so i'll be trying to get that as well and then i can have two manors! yay! :lol:

Good good!

The reason I was going to email Hatton's is because I'm going to move to DCC and get the Bachmann DCC System and a DCC Sound loco! :wink:

I know that renumbering would be a bit of a job, so I'd leave it as it is!

Mmm..I don't think that that Mainline motor will stay at 99 pence somehow! Two Manors that would be great!

Keep up the good work! :wink:

...so do I!

Right I'd like your input on the following!

Once I have got my Bachmann Dynamics DCC system I would like to get a DCC Sound loco.

But which one?

1) Bachmann Class 37/0 Diesel 37057 'Viking' BR Blue Large Logo Corner Indicators (DCC Sound).

2) Bachmann Class 47 Diesel 47404 'Hadrian' BR Blue Full Yellow Ends Marker Light H/Code (DCC Sound).

3) Bachmann Class 20 Diesel 20129 BR Blue With Indicator Boxes (Digital Sound).

4) Bachmann Class 66 Diesel 66022 'Lafarge Charnwood' EWS (Digital Sound).

5) Bachmann Class 66 Diesel 66522 Freightliner Shanks (Digital Sound).


I shall be posting a poll in the Bachmann section anyway but I'd like to know what you thought! :wink:

blargh! youre all off topic! :lol:

I got my spares Manor today, and as it turns out the motor was included! but there are a lot of other parts missing :| So what i ended up doing was modifying the Mainline Manor 7808 Cookham Manor body and placing it on the bachmann chassis. The body of 7825 Lechlade manor was put on the non operating mainline chassis and can serve as a dummy engine for double headers or for photos! im going to weather 7825 as well, into a semi rundown/ used state. So now i have a properly lettered and numbered GWR (with shirtbutton logo!) on my ermm.. layout :roll:

i'll get piccies when i can :)
