A few photos of my running session tonight, video to come later. As you can see, it is all LNER themed.

LNER 2-6-0 K3 No.1992 on the 9-coach Teak train.

Image

Image

Image

LNER 4-6-2 A4 No.4468 'Mallard'.

Image

Image

Image

And finally LNER 4-6-2 A3 No.4472 'Flying Scotsman'.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Hey-ho what's this? A stranger in the camp! Tis infact my new LMS 4-6-2 Princess Royal 6201 'Princess Elizabeth'.

Image

Image

Unfortunately she is a terrible runner, I reckon I'll just send her to Hornby for repairs.

Not brand new is it ? Looks like good setup in your club and better choice in loco's

That's funny mine runs sweet as a nut. I see you haven't fitted the steps or the other detailing bits, but then neither have I.

Low level with a touch of over exposure!

I wanted to get her working well before I popped them on. It is a shame since it is such an excellent model - and prototype for that matter. I bought a book called 'Heading North', a picture book of locations from Euston to Carlisle. I knew when I got it that it'd prove to be an expensive buy, since my interests would require acquisition of LMS types... So it has been. I'll send 6201 back to Hornby to look at; they ought to know what I am doing better than I!

Here are a few photos of my new Beattie Well running on the Test Track, she would have been most welcome on Sunday at the exhibition at Banbury, but sadly it didn't arrive in time. Video to come later.

One or two photos of Tedburn. We won Best Visiting Layout for the Milton Keynes MRE a few weeks ago!

I ran my LNER black N2 on a 6-coach train of those teak Gresley Subs, to say they looked fabulous is an understatement.

I went to Railfest yesterday with my cousin who has kindly been working on my part-complete LNWR Improved Precendent. Below are the photos of 790 'Hardwicke' being run/tested on the test track.

790 'Hardwicke' on a Pullman train. The loco doesn't have great haulage due to its size, three coaches is its maximum on our test track.

'Hardwicke' now on 3x Stanier LMS coaches.

Image

Midland Compound No.1000 and 790 'Hardwicke' side-by-side.

'Hardwicke' and 1000 operate a railtour.
