Just a quick update. Crew fitted to the T9 and smoke box plate fitted from Fox. I also found the screw coupling and am quite happy with the end results as per the photos. It hauls 2 coaches just... I'll need to make sure layout is absolutely level though!

 

Have put Wheal Elizabeth up and tested it ready for Scaleforum next weekend. There were a couple of running repairs but these have been fixed. Do come and say hello if you're at the show.

 

Now, I can start to think about the next loco for construction. Definitely ex GWR and suitable for a Somerset branch line!

Nice looking T9 there mate!  Out of interest do Fox have smokebox numberplates by Class or did you get them made specially?  I renumber nearly all my stock to situate actual locos in my period with photos I have in books etc and the cabside changes are fine with Pressfix- havent found smokebox numbers yet.

 

regards

Hi Dave

Yes, Fox list them on their website as standard.

You can also try 247 Developments or Modelmaster.

Best of luck.
