Obviously there are likely to be detail differences that 37 aficionado's will point out, but that model would make a good basis for renumbering to 37087, which stayed in that livery/headcode box combination until 2012. 

Not really the place to discuss on this thread, but from the top of my head the differences are markerlight lense positions and cantrail grilles are the main differences between the 2

My DJ Models 1361 arrived today, gave it a good two hours running in but it stalls frequently at low speeds... needless to say I’m returning it, but wanted to ask if anyone else experienced this?

 

Trying to work out whether I’ve just got a dud and to ask for a replacement or save my cash for a different small engine bargain...

I would suggest asking the the DJM section.  Though given the demise of that vendor i would expect return.

 

 

 

In other news some bargains:

 

cheap parcels vans:

Rails also seem to have quite a few sub £25 quid  Bachmann Mk1s in various shades...

I know it's a long thread but the last few pages of this thread are probably the best place to ask/find answers:-

Yes thx a Mk1 GUV for 25 notes looks good,

 

I know they're a bit niche if one is in rivet counter mode; but these Grain Wagons are nice and cheap at under 16 quid :

Depending exactly what you're wanting Hereford Models and The Model Centre also have similar offers;

 

http://herefordmodels.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=369_370_377_387_390&sort=3a&page=1

 

https://www.themodelcentre.com/oo-gauge?cat=688&manufacturer=852&p=1&product_list_order=price

 

Start at the bottom of P1 on the model centre link.

 

Between the various suppliers you can pick up a few different types at a good price so it's worth shopping around.

don't get me started on that bag of nails (i'm on about the 1361). returned mine to Kernow, after some snotty emails regarding noise, grease etc. I did get a full refund though.

Another shout-out for Bure Valley Models (no connection). Just bought a pair of Maunsell ex-LSWR coaches in sunshine green at £27.50 each (generally £40+, best I'd seen elsewhere was £33).

http://www.burevalleymodels.com/s/maunsell/name/2

Also available in crimson+cream at the same price. Olive a bit more but still cheap.

Also seeing Maunsell push-pull sets at £55.

 

Secondly, if you're after a Peckett W4 (specifically, the blue PLA or green Forest Colliery ones), Derails (no connection) appear to be your best bet, at £77 (and £0 postage!). Over the last couple of months I've had one of each.

https://www.derails.co.uk/index.php?route=product/search&filter_name=peckett

Rails have them at at £80, but then you've got £4 postage on top.

If this has been mentioned before, I apologise.

 

Browsing, I've noticed that the LYR tank in lined BR is a 'bargain' at Rails. It appears substantially cheaper than other outlets, and appears also to be generally low in stock (or sold out) elsewhere.

 

Hopefully, this is helpful to someone?

Whilst it's only 20% off RRP I do think these look good value

 

https://www.collettsmodelshop.co.uk/product/Hornby-r3813-class-395-javelin-4-car-emu-395013-Hornby-visitor-centre-in-southeastern-livery/

 

£128 for a 4 car EMU that whilst not amazing doesn't look bad. And about £10 cheaper than I can find it anywhere else

 

https://www.collettsmodelshop.co.uk/product/Hornby-r4999-pack-of-two-centre-coaches-for-class-395-javelin-in-southeastern-livery/

 

Or when combined with this is £192 for a 6 car prototypical train.

"31-627B Bachmann Class 3F Steam Locomotive number 3520 in LMS Black livery with Deeley Tender ERA 3"

 

http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/51180/31-627B-Bachmann-Class-3F-Steam-Locomotive-number-3520-LMS

 

Seems a bargain at £64 unless I'm missing something?

 

Wrong livery for me.
