  1. More great work Jerry! Reminds me, I need to get my 57 and DVT booked in. Work has been rather manic!
  2. More great work Jerry, I'm very envious of that LM 150, looks superb!
  3. Have you considered using something like Velcro for the signs? It makes life easier to swap them over then for each era.
  4. The rear 57 with 5601 was 57313, now named Scarborough Castle.
  5. Looks great! Must admit, when funds allow I'm hoping to expand my unit collection. There's something really nice about these work worn DMUs ferrying people around the north. That exhaust looks superb also!
  6. You're doing amazingly well Jim, brilliant to see and for a great cause too! Always nice to see your photos and accompanying information too.
  7. This looks superb, looking forward to seeing this progress further!
  8. I think there’ll be a shopping list at this rate! I was going to have a bid on 90021 but forgot about it. Doh! Just found it on this video rather conveniently, not the best shots but does show it.
  9. I don't have any pics unfortunately but it was on a layout called Foxhampton which was at Stafford show last year: https://www.staffordrailwaycircle.org.uk/layouts/members-layouts-2/foxhampton/ I'd quite fancy one in debranded LM, as per when they transferred to Northern so when the pennies allow I think I know where I'll be coming for one!
  10. More great work! Has the LM 150 got a home or is it coming up for sale? Only the second one I've seen done.
  11. Thanks very much, I had wondered whether it was something along those lines as to why it couldn't move itself.
  12. Nice selection of images as always! Out of interest, why can't the milling machine move under its own power between sites instead of being chaperoned by sheds?
  13. Thanks very much Jerry! They're all fairly similar at the moment but hopefully will be able to get further afield soon. Fingers crossed Revolution releases their Drax wagons in OO.
  14. More great work! These look excellent! Looking forward to seeing how the LM 150 turns out too. Always been tempted by one in that livery.
  15. This is the path for the 69 for anyone in the locality of it: https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/R07745/2021-02-11/detailed?fbclid=IwAR1NYBbCF9Tbl7q9k80WSExNeHDE8DYaiVCfAVrNMbyaVZ3efKwR-bEcsrY
  16. Looking good! I doubt it on the 90s, I was surprised not to see any or 158s in the last round of releases!
  17. Top drawer! Superb job on the 50s. The GB ones are how they should have looked from Hornby if they'd done their homework properly.
  18. Royal train arrived back at Wolverton around 17.30. That's it for this time folks! As PerthBox says, I've been fortunate enough to see the royal on several occasions and it has always been a 1Zxx. My notes have a variety of previous head codes: 1Z20/21, 1Z39/40, 1Z60 and 1Z88. As a result, unless you knew it was running or made an educated guess, it's not that easy to get a shot of it. I had seen in the press it was due to visit Cardiff so having seen it had left Manchester Victoria heading westbound I gambled on a Warrington routing and it paid off but that's not always the case. You can view royal engagements on the website but for obvious reasons it doesn't show how they will arrive. When we had a Royal visit in Warrington I was hopeful of the train but unfortunately not, helicopter. It was a long wait at Winwick Jn put it that way!
  19. I managed to catch up with it yesterday on its way to Cardiff. I took a punt having seen it leave Manchester Victoria westbound on the diagrams which luckily came up trumps.

  20. New nose cone, believe they get done every so often or if they’re damaged. There’s an Avanti livery one running round with a grey nose as well.
  21. It doesn't fill you with confidence when even the Pendolino's aren't wearing their face covering properly...
  22. A real shame that it lost the livery, it looked superb! Intercity 43185 hasn't been quite so lucky. Whilst it still has its IC livery, (albeit weather battered!) it's now at Haymarket being stripped for spares for Scotrail.
