i thought having all preserved manors was a little too much but all 30!!! bust my buffers!!! (always wanted to say that lol) how do you have foxcote in GWR green? its non authentic and i think bachmann only did it in br green (unless you renumbered her)

you dont happen to have a spare (working chassis for a manor do you? when i bought 7820 it was just a body so i had to find a new tender and chassis. i found the tender (off a spares or repairs hinton) and now just need a chassis.

the only thing is with going for streamlined track is that your older models might not work as well as they would on normal track.
