Since the demise of Dean Goods 2322 there has been a gap in the motive power fleet that serves Little Muddle.
But no more, from Oxford Rail comes their Dean Goods 2534 and to prove it's not another one of my photo props here she is on her maiden run to Little Muddle.
Other than a spray of Dullcote it is straight out of the box.
I do have to say that I think I need to alter the shunting speed setting on the Zimo chip as she seems to be fair belting along the track.
She is also the quietest and smoothest loco in my fleet, no doubt due to the brass flywheel!
