  1. An nice s15 would go down a real treat for my own layout or a 43xx also a 9f, yes I know there is the Dapol one but farish seem to the standards very very well All the best matt
  2. All change on Malcolms Way! Having had a play with the layout in its current form I have made a decision... Yup I'm starting afresh. A little more storage room at home has allowed me two four foot by 3 foot boards. This opens up the opportunity to really grow this layout. Gone are the tight curves, hello 4th raduis. I noticed on the orginal layout some locos were struggling, well I did have first raduis at certain points. So with the added length and width I can have more realistic curves, slightly longer trains and just have something I can really get my teeth into. The track plan will mainly be staying the same, just less cramped and have a slightly more open feel Shall be making a start on the new baseboards in the new year, so hopefully I can have some track down and wired by early next year. But for now I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New year All the best Matt
  3. Thank you for this, Christmas present ordered, I think we all remember opening our first trainset on Christmas morning Matt
  4. Will see how the gt3 comes out but at the moment having been burnt by djm models I'll be giving this a miss for now Matt
  5. Saw these running on Sunday and they look like superb little models. Also hats off to the guys demonstrating as they answered lots of questions. Won't be getting one of these but look forward to anymore steam you guys plan, Southern would be nice Matt
  6. Andy I've spent some down time on my Guildford to Farnham shuttles this evening reading through this thread, my man what an lovely layout. Truly inspired me to get cracking back on with mine if I can get it anywhere near this standard, I'll be a very happy man. Superb effort mate All the best Matt
  7. Have my British railways livered C class currently running around the test loop as I type, what a sublime little model. Captures the prototype beautifully, yes the coupling rods may be a tad on the chunky side, but in motion it really doesn't make that much difference. Livery application is superb, simple livery but the numbers and the logo on the tender are superb. With some subtle weathering it will look even better. Running is very quiet, after 20 minutes each way light engine I currently have it on 8 loaded with coal minerals and its not even batting an eyelid and this is on train set curves. Very very impressed. I will be adding the zimo chip as seen from Tom's video. All in all, farish have raised the bar with this model, for me the benchmark is the n class and this will look just at home with this as a shed mate. Congratulations Farish this is one hell of a model!! Now how about a T9 haha All the best Matt
  8. Just thought I'd update this, Paul at alton models is going to take a look with so I can watch him do one and I'll do the other superb customer service, can't ask for much more then that, I'll be sure to buy something like a loco while in there as a way to say thank you Matt

  10. I'll have another go tonight gents thank you for all the advice these little sods will run again Matt
  11. Oh Tom why did you have to add a video haha, looks and sounds great. Looks like a phone call is in order to youchoos on payday from my br one Matt
  12. I get that Grahame, but I just can't physically push the shaft in anymore then it already is, and when trying to reconnect the tender the loco and tender sit as if they are on the pyramids, it's baffling me. I'll give it another go after tomorrow but if I can then they'll be sent off Matt
  13. I've tried again this morning and all I've managed to do is bend one the drive ends of the drive shaft, ah well time to give dcc supplies a call when they open, I'd rather pay to have them do it, then do anymore damage, roll on the new motors from Dapol when the bulleids come out Thanks all Matt
  14. Hello all I've recently acquired a pair of the Dapol manors, lovely little locos but I cannot for the life of me seem to get the drive shafts back in place, they seem to long once in place and then cannot get the loco to sit flat. Is it a case of pushing the side on the loco in more? I don't want to force it and do damage. Any assistance would be superb, a confused matt!
