Yes, unusual to get a nice shot like that  of a GWR Loco and not have Chocolate and Cream behind it, especially for a Mag.

Excellent.

247 have been a waste of space for years and the new chap has not taken to adding to the existing range except to remove the plinth on certain one's, Fox can swivel at that price  :mad:  they are p!ss takers I would sooner rename it.

I'll give Jim a call at Modelmasters to see if he will do them I'll let you know how I get on.

Buqqer it, thanks for letting me know Ian  :good:, to be honest there's no rush there is so much in the to do box it can wait.

I've had the large Prairies out on the layout for a running session they have not been out of their storage tray for 2 years or more

1 out of 5 worked OK one dropped a traction tyre another had the rim come off a pony truck wheel the other 2 protested but after cleaning they ran OK  :senile:

we really need some one to bring out a new model as long as it's not "Mr Recess"  :crazy: doing it I'd be a happy bunny.

As someone who is still at junior school, probably.


 

 

 

 

 

Or you could ask the android to do it.

I heard an ad mentioning a price of 999 Dollars over here. Either they're cheap here or expensive over there! :scratchhead:
