I agree, 37s are growing on me since I got the Bachmann EWS City of Worcester. Since added a ViTrains in intercity mainline and was going to get another in Civ Eng Dutch but when I got to the shop yesterday it had gone :(

Trying to decide which one to get instead so that I don't appear to be copying you & Gavin! :| :D

Hi Darren,

Like the new pics :D

I'm also copying you (sort of) I just purchased a vi-trains triple Grey class 37 in trainload metals. Its markings are very similar to the petroleum one you have. I already had a vi trains class 37 and I am very impressed with them. But it is a bit fiddly fitting all those extra bits - I have fingers like bananas! I had to make some of the holes a little bigger (very carefully) to accept some of the bits.

I also recently purchased the Bachmann large logo class 47 (which I believe was released at the same time as the intercity one). As much as I like the vi-trains examples I have, the Baccy is a really smooth runner, probably worth the extra few quid.

cheers,
James

Thanks James, yeah the fittings are the only thing that lets the vi train model down a bit as for the 47 thanks for the tip still haven't decided on one yet maybe at next payday :D :D

also seen as it's Lordsbridge first birthday i wondered if anyone had requests for pics for the big day?

cheers

Darren

Right I know I’m a bit late but thought i'd celebrate Lordsbridges first birthday

So Lordsbridge is now a year old it has come along way from a southern steam era layout to one now based in the mid 1980’s up till 1990’s mainly focusing on the Network Southeast area, the layout it self is a fictional village on the Medway Valley Line somewhere between Strood and Maidstone West (still needs the third rail to be added but I’m waiting till I get the hornby 4 vep in NSE livery) also the Medway valley line connects to the Kent Line and on to London in my model world as in real life the Medway line stops at Strood.

Lordsbridge Station

Lovely!

(Though you may wish to check the N15's front bogie before you run it, judging from that last pic! :wink: )

I love the low-level pics, by the way - they highlight how good a job you did with the ballasting.

Regards,
Gavin

A layout is never finished, it's just a shortage of ideas.

yeah i had almost forgot what a great model the T9 is i think i might have to order another decoder so i can have it running again, also this is the first picture of the schools class running without its smoke deflectors i removed them ages ago as i think that the loco looks better with out them, not sure what other people think thou?
