My unusually successfull attempt to hide the join marks in my scenic underlay (turns out most of the landscape between Wadebridge and Bodmin is actually farmland).

New arrival at Wadebridge.

It may be 22 years old, but the detail is pretty impressive considering.

And it was all mine for £15! 8)

It is indeed. 8)

I toyed with the idea of getting the 22, but in the end I decided not to bother. £125 is quite a lot for a diesel.

Hi mate i quite agree unless it has sound 8) I have the 205 DEMU on pre order wqhich is £149.99 and am now thinking of canceling.The 25 as you say does look well detailed considering.Is it the one where the headcode panel lights up? As when i was a kid a mate of mine had the blue 25 247 if memory serves and the headcode lit up.I was well impressed.
cheers.

Headcode panels don't light up unfortunatley, but it wouldn't take much to fix that - There's a ton of room under the body for both LED's and a decoder.

D5200 arrives at Wadebridge with a short demonstration freight.

Can't believe how quiet it is for such an old model.

They do look a little on the high side now that you mention it.

I'll have to compare it with some of my other rolling stock.

They don't look to bad. but yeah it could be a good idea to check them against your other rolling stock.

Couple of video's taken today.

This one looks a little Thomas the Tank, but when you have an 0-4-0 powered by a Eurostar motor, controlling it can be difficult. :lol:
