Some very good photos there; nice to see the point motors installed! Especially that one just out of reach.

That's no good, you need a rebuilt one, the Hornby rebuilt light pacifics are the best model of the lot, even though they are the most expensive.

Quality is better than quantity, I only have 2, Blackmoor Vale, and Battle of Britain, Sir Archibald Sinclair, with 5,250 gallon tender, but they are unique appart from Blackmoor vale which of course there are quite a few of.

Dan's are unique to many renamed, and changed so they also have a unique value too.

I know this guy two, if he is the chap i think Matt's on about, and tbh i think it's overkill, as Matt said quality, not quantity, my plan was to have 4 working bullieds to represent 4 different types, (rebuilt MN, rebuilt WC, WC with cut down tender, BoB with high sided tender) as my 35028 is old it is now on static display and 35027 takes over that role and the 2 new ones were gifts so thats how I have them. If I had 30 of them I know I'd get sick of them, I'd rather have 30 locos of different types.

Yes its the guy who done my tender, think hes got over 60 bullied pacifics... hes just started a T9 fetish.. so see how many he ends up with of those, does a good job on all of his locos, mainly all heavily weathered.

Hello Pedantic,
Loved the video and pleased to inform you that my hearing is "top-notch" :shock: :lol: You keep sending "steamers" around your Lay-out and I'll keep watching. Many Thanks,
Kind Regards,
Michael Thornberry.
