  1. My sympathies to Kerry and the children. Blue skies Vern Sam
  2. GBRf 50's - as a long term member of the Fifty Fund I can't wait to get my hands on those two. Some great (and unexpected) models across the range - exciting times. Excellent summary - thanks Andy Sam
  3. Thanks for the photos - I've now successfully extracted the coal load from mine Sam
  4. I picked up my E1 yesterday and have just had a chance to give it a run. Very noisy out of the box which is unusual for Bachmann locos, particularly in reverse. A quick oil round of the gear train though and now runs smoothly. Does anyone know if the coal load comes out though ? - it looks like a diecast mound of coal but seems reluctant to move.
  5. As far as I can remember, you have to take the NEM housing off the front end which reveals another screw underneath. So one screw to release the housing - the bit with the 'V' shape in it, then another underneath. Two screws under the cab / back of tanks and one at the back I think.
  6. Me too - breakdown cranes, 'Unknown Warrior' and BR large logo 66 all cancelled.
  7. The instructions talk about a V2 PCB. There is also a list of various switches to control the headcodes and cab lighting. I haven't got a 73 from the original release so can't compare with this version.
  8. Well these two look great to me. Paint finish is excellent, all parts present and correct and smooth runners. There's a bag of extra detailing parts that I haven't fitted yet.
  9. A view of the other side (Bluebell railway model exhibition)
  10. While still on tour, this time at the Bluebell Railway model show - here's a couple of views with SR bogie wagons,
  11. And here's the full view of the Express Dairy van .........
  12. Thanks for posting the photo Mike
  13. Livery sample of Southern 'Sid' at the GCR model railway event. Quite tempted to add a 009 branch to the layout for this one ............
  14. Livery sample of the BR red version on the stand at the GCR model railway event. Looks great. A question though - would these have run with the departmental yellow coaches that have been available over the last few years ?
  15. Quick question for those that already have a J36. Is the coal load in the tender removable ? Thanks Sam
