I thought it was a 2800, as its got a different sort of cab, and also its 2891, if it was a 2884, wouldn't it be a 38xx? And also I think it was an older hornby model which was only ever a 2800, although I might be wrong :?

Nah its a 2884 due to the fact it has windows in the cab. if its 2891 then it is definantly a 2884 as it is over 2884, which is where they got the class number from. it is also a new one. most people think there called 38xx due to most of them being numbered 3800 onwards.

Yeah, on the second glance, the biggest give away was the coal in the tender, its not stacked 7 feet high! as with the older versions!!

I wish I had some of my trains from england over here, then i would have a little more improved line ups on my layout, not that there is anywhere to put them on 'Siddiston'. :L

You may have noticed that Dinmore Manor has a different chassis in the later pictures. This is because dinmore's old chassis is dead, the centre axel where it joins the cog is split, but that will be a simple glue job. But, also sometimes when it runs the motion muckes up and goes the opposite direction to the others wheel's motion. I have swapped the chassis, bogie and tender with 7825 Lechlade Manor, as it's my layout's 10th anniversary, I wanted 7820 operational, so I sacrificed 7825 till I get a new chassis to go on 7820. Then 7825 can have it's chassis back. :)
I forgot to put this yesterday.

Hi chap, if when you post you want pics from your facebook, or anywhere else where there is a link just like the one you have used there, click on 'Img' which is one of the tools, in the line with bold, italic, quote, code, list etc (little grey boxes) ..this will plant two image enabling thingy's into your post, and then simply past the link between the two ... and hey presto.


..ahh, and make sure the image is under 800 pixels wide ...which is odd, as facebook generally have a 700 pixel limit??


hope this helps. :D

Ah yes nicely pointed out Terrier, some of us can be a bit lazy on here and don't always click on a link. You have to help us if you want to show your layout off!! :P

Cheers,

I did this, but it says that it is impossible to determine the image's dimensions.
I also forgot to say earlier that I staged a royal wedding themed day with 6201, 6002 and 6024 all appropriately named: Princess Elizabeth, King William IV and King Edward I. And I also forgot to say that I have nearly finished laying my first fiddle yard, of which there is also pictures.
