Not sure if anyone else has posted it but found a photo of the forthcoming J11 from Kernows site.

Kenny! I didn't even realise this was coming out and I thought I'd decided on the railway stuuf I wanted to get in the near future (Hornby sentinel, hornby ota wagons and hornby network rail coaches) When does it come out? :lol: :lol:

I expect it would be a colectors club model, in which case I'd joint up lickerty split! It would look great with the GCR 8K the NRM did a couple of years ago.

LOL bit of post confusion there! Expect the J11 model to arrive for the end of the year, if it comes earlier that will be a bonus. Now you do know about the lovley L&Y 2-4-2 tank dont you?......... :lol:

Yes, my thoughts exactly. Bachmann have started doing a few bits of pre-grouping liveried locos now so I expect it is inevitable, same with the L&Y 2-4-2T.

I've got a 6-wheel GCR brake van to build (and the GCR 8k), so a 9J would look lovely as a banker on a long PO goods train methinks!

Talking of PO wagons Robbies Rolling Stock does nearly all the collieries around the Woodhead route, plus many coal merchants based in Manchester so a fairly authentic rake can be made up. How hard is it do run a banker without causing a catastrophy?

Very easy with DCC control, by speed and acceleration matching any locos that are to be used in this way. (The stability of the speed control in the Lenz decoders I major on is impressive, with the locos staying almost in lock step despite changes in gradient and curves varying the imposed drag from the train.) If the train engine has enough traction to pull whatever train is behind it up the hill, then the banker doesn't need to do any real pushing, just stays buffered up on the brake van, pushing the last two or three vehicles of the train only. That is safest, as it avoids the train ever getting compressed between a faster moving banker and a slower train engine. Mismanage things and get the train compressed, then you may expect a derailment.

The J11 is on my christmas list too. Bachmann will I am sure run this loco in every feasible livery, but I will have mine in BR black, and cover it in rust and filth. Cleanest thing on it will be the coal, replacing the cast metal heap that Bachmann have shown it with...

I've 2 BEC J11s in LNER livery, just my luck that Bachmann annouced their J11 just after I finished restoring and rewheeling them. If the do do a GCR one, I'll buy one or two..... I wasn't planning to go DCC, but I'm not commiting to anything yet. Thanks for the detailed info BTW.
Cheers

I've always had positive results with banking (using DC). Don't know why, I just have! Running at the Test Track down the club, banking is sometimes quite prototypical considering the tight curve on a gradient at one end of the circuit.
