Thanks guys, 5619 is a personal favorite due to it being an GWSR resident for a few years before moving onto the NNR. It is missing the smokebox door numberplate (when i bought it there was no sign of it!) so i need to try and find a replacement. Just for the 56xx fans, here are a few more photos:
Image
5619 and 5526 await departure while the out of use and soon to be sold 6606 sits next to them.
Image
5619 takes a turn on the Cambrian Coast Express, covering for the failed 3205.
Image
Passing 5526 with the snowplough.
Image
Back on shed while 13 shunts the dead 6606.
now some general play shots:
Image
5526 departs the current terminus with a milk and parcels train.
Image
and is seen arriving at Broadham.
Image
13 is seen shunting my first ever diesel, a Class 06 that used to have 'HORNBY RAILWAYS' plastered across the sides of the nose.
Image
5619 shares shed space with 9600, LT95 and the 06.

General view of the shed area.

I really do want a 56XX, one of the models of 5619 would be nice, but i wouldn't mind any 56XX really :P

that is a lovely class 06 :D

You might want to renumber Bachmann's current 6658 like I did.The existing smokebox plate may need smoothing down to apply the 5619 replacement successfully,but a full set of plates are obtainable from MJE.
Kenny-I'll have a dig around to see if I have a spare smokebox plate :)

I have to say a 56xx is well worth your money, they have amazing detail, smooth and powerful chassis and just captures South Wales in one! I really do recommend one to anyone!
That would be great Phipps if you do have a spare! :D

Definetly great Photos Kenny. I think I'm going to get a 56XX, and this thread has just reminded me about it.

Apologies,but you'll have to take my word for it that it's 5619.Happened to be a chance moment,cos we'd been to Sheringham & visit my Dad for his birthday on C'mas Eve.Heading out over the Church St bridge,the steam billowing from under & it was the lunchtime Santa run,so we nipped ahead & parked up by the A149 bridge to film it heading past.Quite a rake for the old girl,but it doesn't have to tackle Kelling bank when only chufffing to Weybourne & back a few times.
Felt quite Christmassy for the kids,as we'd been on it ourselves a year or two back.

Thanks Phipps :D

That was awesome :mrgreen:

When on holiday I cycled from up on the Kelling Heath campsite place where i was staying on a lovely august day in 2007, it was a scorcher and we cycled to Sherringham and back, we had a short rest and a drink at the station and watched Black Prince pull in and run round its train. I wish I could live in Sherringham :(

Great video Phipps!
Now i am planning my Spring Steam Gala. This years theme will be 'small and ferocious' featuring only tank engines. The home fleet will consist of the following:
5526
LT95
9600
5619
13
There will be at least 3 more locos 'visiting' for the gala. This gala will take place around March time.
Before March however i will be holding a Hauling the Freight weekend, featuring the latest purchase (which i have yet to receive) Turkish 8F 45161. Also taking part will be Super D 49395, 56xx 5619, Collett Goods 3205 and 9f 92221. As the name suggests the gala will be mainly to do with freight, up to 3 different trains will be operation, along with one passenger set. This event will hopefully take place at the end of January.
February is one of my favorite months of the year, mainly because its my birthday! :D so of course i hope to have an event to celebrate my 18th! Locos TBA.
Other events are being planned, including a Cambrian/GWR 177 event, featuring new locos due to arrive this year including Dukedog 9017, King 6023 and Grange 6880!
Kenny over and out!

The Turkish 8F should be landing in the next week, which means this coming weekend will feature the Moving the freight gala. The gala will hopefully also see the arrival of visiting celebrity Norma V, the NRMF Tour 5 coach, i did only say hopefully though ;)
