Now available. Very good too overall, looks well, runs sweetly, well short of the dreaded £100 mark. Bachmann have - we must assume - heard the complaints about the gear tower being visible under the boiler in some of the earlier small goods loco releases, and have hidden it away neatly out of sight on this one.

Good example of the common 'maid of all work' machines that were so common in the steam railway. Let's hope for a lot more, one for the GNR, one for the LNWR, one for the NER, one for the L&Y, one for the NBR, One for the CR etc.

Looks like the collectors club edition of this will be in WW1 R.O.D. grey.

Is that not the C-Class they are doing in grey?

I only caught a glimpse of it so I've just took another look. Yeah it is a C class.

They have done it already a some pop up on eBay but the prices are rather inflated due to the popularity of the SECR version
For example £200

Ooh very nice

you don't need one

but I really like 0-6-0 tenders

Your railway is SOUTHERN based

but it's a preserved railway

You've just spent all your money


d'oh...


Think I prefer the GCR liveried one, but both look very nice, I must get some more 0-6-0 tender locos, I think in general they perhaps my favourite wheel arrangement, as they almost always tend to have nice proportions above the running plate (Q1 excepted of course)

I can't match a GCR lineup, but how about a pair of Robinsons?

Wait until you see the J15. I hope Hornby have rebuilt their production capacity by the time it comes out to deal with the demand. Has the same appeal as the Terrier, improbably small for a mainline loco, and was a very good performer that punched way over its weight. Offer it in GER Royal Blue, and everyone except the 'D&E only' group is likely to want one. http://www.lner.info/locos/J/j15.shtml
