More proof that GWR Castles might not be the fastest or most powerful but they are the prettiest


Strong claim, I have a feeling City of Truro will be a contender for the crown of 'prettiest at Wenchford'

Great video, you've certainly got an impressive collection! I spot a single car DMU in the background, sitting on a siding. It'll be great to see it running too when you get round to do another video!

Indeed you do spot one, a Derby Lightweight single car, it belongs to a friend who has no layout so has asked for it to live on mine for a while, I shall try and get it into the next video. :D

Ahhh! My wallet isn't safe! But then again, I don't need a star because I have a castle, just bought a city that is being painted at the moment, but a dukedog, that may burn a hole in my pocket, but after the city, and the 57xx and 30xx which are under construction I am tempted to get a loco that is not GWR for varietys sake.

Very enjoyable video which shows off the good length of run that you have.

Will you be going to the GOG Spring meet at Kettering?

I'm not sure, I've heard it's only a small show, what's it like and when is it? I only have plans to attend Guildex in Sept and maybe Reading in Dec at present.

Kettering 3rd March - Kettering Leisure Village, Thurston Drive, Kettering, NN15 6GN

Not as big as Guildex with minimal (if any) layouts but certainly worth the trip for the technical services and 80+ traders present if you can't wait until Telford :wink:

this is dangerous, it's within easy driving distance, on a day i have off work, which happens to be a day after pay day. I can hear my wallet quivering already!

Just got 4965 Rood Ashton Hall back after some tidy up of the paintwork on the smokebox, it now no longer has a smoke unit to take away the chance of smoke oil damaging the paint again, here are some photos of it along side 5043 Earl of Mount Edgecumbe.
