  1. Thanks Ian. I thought that perhaps it was an LSWR A12. And having checked Loco No. 555 was indeed an A12. Cheers, Chris
  2. Sorry to resurrect this topic but a photo on FB recently has sparked my interest. The photo shows a LBSC Atlantic No. 39 on a Royal train at Portsmouth docks that was wrongly captioned as being as being Queen Victoria's funeral train. Upon researching Queen Victoria's funeral train I found that it was taken by a LSWR loco from Gosport to Fareham wherupon it was then taken by a LBSC B4 loco to Victoria station. So my question is this, does anyone know what LSWR loco took the train from Gosport to Fareham? Cheers, Chris
  3. So an update after a reply from Rails. This is in fact a DCC fitted version. Not a sound fitted. It was my mistake thinking it was supposed to be sound fitted. Rails removed the speaker to allow more room for the decoder. Cheers, Chris
  4. So it looks like the speaker is stuck to the blanking plug then ? Sorry I'm a bit of a numpty when it comes to DCC things. Would I be correct in saying that the decoder is fitted to the loco. And will it run without the speaker installed ? I'm not sure if I missed it in previous posts but can somebody give detailed instructions as to how the speaker should be fitted please ? Cheers, Chris
  5. Just received my SECR Terrier. And noticed this thing loose in the plastic bubble. Could somebody please tell me what it is.
  6. Hi Phil, Any chance of posting a photo here of this loco please? Cheers, Chris
  7. On the subject of fictional liveries for Leader class, what if nationalization had not occurred until much later. Therefore one could assume that they would have have received Bulleid's malachite green as the Merchant Navy were painted. I think it would look awesome in malachite with SR sunshine lettering. Cheers, Chris
  8. Yes I would also like to see the LSWR Adams T3 follow after the D class, especially as the sole survivor loco number 563 is currently undergoing restoration to steam on the Swanage Railway. Another very useful Victorian LSWR loco would be the Adams A12 Class Jubilee 0-4-2 tender loco, one of which was not withdrawn from service until Dec.1948. Heres hoping. Chris
  9. Actually I had a reply from KMRC today on Facebook that the LSWR Road Vans will be the next item after the GWR Railmotors are done. So sounds hopeful to me. Cheers, Chris
  10. Does anyone know which of the four cranes that Oxford Rail are producing would be the most suitable for LSWR / SR ? Cheers, Chris
  11. Now that the Hornby ex LSWR brake vans have been released I am wondering what the situation is with Kernow's LSWR Road Vans as I have pre-ordered and pre-paid the full price for six of these. I hope they are still on for production as I am sure they will be better than the Hornby ones. Cheers and Happy New Year to all. Chris
  12. Hi All, Due to unforeseen circumstances the open day at The Flour Mill has been cancelled. No other explanation was given. Cheers, Chris
  13. Latest news is that restoration of the T3 is progressing well. There is to be an open day at The Flour Mill on the 16th. Nov. for those interested in viewing first hand the work done thus far. Donations would be greatly appreciated to assist in completing this loco to steam. Owners are the Swanage Railway Trust. Cheers, Chris
  14. Engineering samples are depicted in Hornby's latest edition of The Engine Shed ! Cheers, Chris
  15. Recent news from the Swanage Railway Trust 563 Locomotive Group. The drive is on to return her to steam. You can read all about it at this website : www.563locomotivegroup.co.uk The order has been placed for the copper for a new firebox. Exciting news indeed. Cheers, Chris
