Love the photos ;)

Out of interest how many carriages can you fit in your station in one hit?

Cracking shots as always Gavin. This viaduct you are planning sounds like a rather interesting project. I'll keep my eyes peeled for a potential green beasty and its rake on it should you manage to get it completed!

Cheers,

Stuart

Your awesome pictures of Tornado have just made me spend all my birthday money on the Hornby special edition version. :D

Ah yes... Gavin can be quite dangerous when it comes to buying locomotives. On a few occasions I have had my arm tweaked ending up slightly worse off, but with additional locomotives! You know which ones I'm referring to Gav. :wink:

The LNER ROD looks great with those Lowmacs. You ever seen the MOD WGC Tank Carrier at Bo'ness at all? Rather interesting wagons. The SVR has one too but not as good as Bo'ness.

5 comfortably; 6 at a push. Although I regularly run 8-or-9-coach expresses, they tend to hustle right on through!

The special edition - is that in apple green or is it the brunswick version? Either way, with Hornby's 5-pole motor inside it's sure to be a lovely loco to run, and with plenty of potential for little superdetailing touches.

Hi Gareth. I'm afraid, being born and raised in Northern Ireland, my knowledge of, and visits to, the British railway infrastructure is pretty limited. Those are interesting photos though - might have to see about some kit-building... :wink:

Cheers all,
Gavin

The special edition is the more elaborately finished apple green one, the Brunswick green/early crest version comes in a train pack. Also, all versions come with a 3 pole motor with flywheel according to Hornbys site

Yes, the motor is a three pole one, but it still runs very well. I have posted some images of my thread, but since then I have added all the detail parts so Tornado now looks like this:

I happen to have realised from the images on your thread that you have formed some kind of deep affection for Tornado, so I thought you might like these pictures. :D

Hi Hoots.

Yes, I do like Tornado a great deal. Partly I like the engine itself - the A1s were handsome by anyone's standards - and partly I like the enthusiasm that got it built in the first place! There's something very pleasing about seeing such determination rewarded.

You know it's the way to go...there are 15 LNER locos in that pic of mine: an A1, two A3s, two A4s, a B12, a B17, a D49, a J39, a J94, a K3, an L1, an N2, an O6, and a V3. Bliss :D - I do love being able to replicate the days of green and gold on Starlingford.

But, lest anyone think I am overly obsessed:

Still doing turns on Pullmans, as you can see!

And since we seem to be in the mood for late-crest photos, how about these?
