  1. This was one I seem to remember, which is one I got around 2005/06. R1045 Night Mail Express
  2. On the older 60s that use the contact and spring between the chassis and body, I just put a piece of insulation tape over the relevant contact to put the tail light off. Not so easy on the newer wired version. Cant remember the config on the 67s.
  3. That is a brilliant photo. Wouldnt be complete without the cant.
  4. Have you put the decoder on top of the loco's PCB? Sounds to me as if its too high not allowing the body to seat properly. I place my decders on a piece of plastic that I fit into the recesses at the 'empty' end of the chassis. This stops the decoder and harness from fouling the cardan shaft below, as well as providing an ideal place to fit your decoder loose or secured.
  5. Can't wait to get my hands on my 8. Is there any updates on these?
  6. Really looking forwards to these. Got the EWS and Loadhaul on order.
  7. Exciting announcements again! Interested in the CDAs and MHAs. Maybe some coal wagons in time, also.
  8. Mine arrived today, and are spot on. Their performance on the layout, detail and weight is superb. Well pleased.
  9. An unit that would fill a big gap in my fleet would be a 175, which in theory could accompany the class 180s. As far as units went, I'd say a new 153/155 would be good also.
  10. Ordered mine today, purely an impulse buy, but too good to miss. Can't wait.
  11. Enjoyed your latest video, thought the police chase intro was fantastic.
  12. The old dockside in Caernarfon, where it seems the old track was simply burried in to create the car park. You can make out most of the point, thanks how the ground has consolidated and settled around the rails and timbers over the years. I've seen a photo of a 2mt loco stood on the sidings here, with the castle in the background.
  13. The line was just built purely as a single line, so any pathway would probably need to be built on adjacent land I would think. A lot of the lineside is drainage ditches, as well the bridges(over and under) are all single track structures. This obviously means there are locations where the pathway will have to deviate away from the line, which is an 'is what it is' situation, and to be fair isn't a bad thing.
  14. From what I understand from a statement from Rhun ap Iorwerth(the local Plaid Cymru AM) is that the Welsh Government among others are developing plans for a multi-use path to run alongside(not necessarily parallel the entire way) the line which will cater for walkers, cyclists etc. The railway itself could in theory cater for commuters and tourists. It makes sense to have a heritage railway on an island that relies heavily on the tourism industry, but nothing says a commuter service couldn't run along side the heritage.
