Liking the Deltic too. Looks the part.

Oh and if anyone comes across one of those NSE liveried 50's for sale, give me a nod :lol:



Theres one on Ebay at the moment. Likely to go for a high sum though.

Good skills - how, pray do you intend to get it past the long haired Colonel without it being spotted?...especially as you bought another one at the same time!! :D :D

Hey,

Where did you get the name Long Newton from? That's the next village along from us... And there is a Hartburn not far away...

Coincidence?!

Cool stuff, nice layout.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone. A bit more work has been done but nothing really worth showing.

I grew up in Stockton - moved to Sheffield 10 years ago. My family still live there so I go back every month or so. When growing up, I used to go riding around Long Newton, Elton, Teeside Airport etc and thought I'd name the layout after the places I grew up in.

Hi Mike how good is your Mercig Deltic any chance of some close up pics as i am trying to decide wether i should go for the Deltic and renumber The Green Howards to Royal Scots Grey or the new Duff Titan and to renumber to NORTH STAR. As Westside is now a preserved line i am leaning towards the Deltic which most people say is CRAP.However the one you have looks fantastic and i bet is the pride of your fleet? Are the horns modelled in brass? As i said on another thread my heart says Deltic and my head says duff.
cheers

Hello,

Apologies for the late reply - I was off getting married and going on my honeymoon. The Mercig Deltic is excellent and highly recommended. As mb1982 says, the Mercig website (http://www.mercigstudios.com/Index.htm) has better photos than any I could take on it. The horns are indeed brass.
