Sadly my Merchant Navy loco's arrive at Wykeham just to be turned on the shed turntable, before heading back to Bournemouth, and then back to London Waterloo - well that's my story. I currently have twenty four M/N Class - only six to go! I really am envious of the space you have. BB
Thanks for the comments!
Space also means more expense unfortunately, Peco has had quite a big slice of cash whilst I have been building this, and I haven't finished yet, I have just started building a representation of Seaton Station, although it will be condensed down quite a lot in length, so that my Push Pull branch train has somewhere to go.
I have had a look at your layout, it looks great btw, there's nothing wrong with having the Bulleid's on shed, you can sit and admire them. Mine just pause briefly at the station, or just flash past.
I haven't got as many MN pacifics as you, I currently have 5 of them, covering 5 different tender types.
35002 Union Castle (5000 gallon cut down tender)
35003 Royal Mail (5250 gallon BR rebodied tender)
35016 Elders Fyffes (5100 gallon cut down tender with full width vacuum cylinder cover)
35018 British India Line (6000 gallon cut down tender)
35026 Lamport and Holt Line (5100 gallon tender with narrow vacuum cylinder cover).
It is a bit unbalanced to be fair, as I have only got 2 rebuilt West Countries, and 1 original condition BOB.
