5043 does look very smart indeed - is it standing up to your expectation, and justifying your excited anticipation of it?

Oh she is standing up to expectation, a good runner, very well built, just looks exactly the part, it's nice to have an express passenger engine instead of all these goods and mixed traffic ones.

Just added more buttons to the panel, and put 'collars' over the buttons currently wired but not in use.

Couldn't resist taking a couple more photos after dark.

A brilliant few photos, 5043 looks smashing. Can't wait to see it in the flesh.

I thought you might find this interesting,

2x 1:43 cars for £2.99

And it's not a con either, by Atlas editions, (of whom I've had deals with before) and mine arrived today and they both look smashing.
