Hornby LSWR T9

Postby Thomas » Fri Jan 15, 2010 1:01 pm

Today my LSWR T9 has arrived. A great model it is! My example arrived in perfect condition. I have just plugged in the short coupler and did a test run. It pulled 6 Hornby Maunsell coaches (all I have at the moment) and a passenger brake van without fuss. Even on the small 490mm radius curves of my sons trainset the T9 pulled this train. The loco is smooth and silent straight out of the box. So Hornby seems to have sortet out the teething troubles of the T9. Now I am looking forward to the Imperial Airways trainpack for my 4th T9.

I used a single table lamp as light source - not ideal for this kind of photography so you have to take my word that the loco looks really very nice in this livery.

That does indeed look very beautiful - I am somewhat jealous! I do have a model of 120 in Olive Green, but I am a big fan of the pre-grouping liveries.

One of those would look good alongside my M7, which is in the same livery. Imagine them double-heading! Ooooh!

Yesterday I tested the haulage and found that it could haul a train of 6 Hornby Maunsell coaches and 2 passenger brake vans. I think thats pretty good for this model as its substantially smaller than the N15. I tested my Schools Charterhouse, too. However I found that I have not enough coaches to reach the limit of the School class, the haulage capacity seems formidable!
