Put some in the bottom of your wardrobe, and tell her you have had them for years.

 

Similar to all of her shoes & handbags !!!

Thanks, but I don't believe it when the Mrs says its been in the wardrobe for years, so doubt she would believe me either!  Anyway she won't climb ladders and they are tucked away in the loft!  Simples!

They always say there is very little difference between an idiot and a genius.  Perhaps there is little difference between heaven and .......

 

Heres a couple of views of to some, possibly of heaven on earth!  (Layout still very much a work in progress, although I did achieve my aim of running a train when the TEA's arrived!)

Thanks Paul, it is on RMweb, but shamefully has not been updated since 2017 as I have just been doing little bits when I can, to get it progressing.  Nathald St.Geran is the title, if you wish to peruse. 

 

Will have to get on and start adding some more.  I wanted to update it so my little boy could see the trials and tribulations I've had with it.  I've been at it a good 3 or 4 years now!   Maintaining the layout thread It may encourage me to get things done.  Most recent thing has been the wiring of the 6 storage sidings, so that the top level depot and sidings can be put in.  But that needed a control panel (3 attempts etc), plus a good few hours marking out the plan and adding the mimic diagram, plus cutting and drilling holes for switches......  I'll take a photo of it and put it on the thread tomorrow morning!  It shows the track layout pretty well, even if I do say so myself.

 

Regards,

 

C.

Grey ones appear to be sold out. 

 

Revolution are gauging interest for a second run of the N gauge ones, and it seems resale values of the OO gauge ones have gone the same way, so it seems conceivable.

I managed to get myself six of the VTG Grey ones for my Hornby Class 60's. They are nice models and they are about 30% heavier than the Lima ones. A long rake of them would surely test the haulage capabilities of the Class 60 from Hornby. 

 

Here's 60008 with mine :).

I have had my H60 lifting 10 Revolution TEAs + 15 Bach TEAs on a slight gradient - even managing from a standing start.  I have a few more Bach TEAs that I can try to test the limit of the beast but have not tried yet.  Last night had H56 with 10 + 13 running with no issues either.

Currently bidding on them. I would like about 10 for my Hornby Class 60. These wagons do pack some weight though ;). I would have 32 of them but I would probably get shot! :jester:.

Take a chance, and get 32 of them.

 

You might get shot, but there's always a chance they could MISS !!!

Yes I could. But another thing is that if the rumours of Revolution doing another run in 2021/2022 are true then maybe its best I just settle for about 10 for now and then pre-order 22 new ones at that time. Chances are that I won't have to pay silly money for them on eBay ;).

10 + 22, still equals 32

 

You could still get SHOT !!!

That's true but as for me, I would more likely get chewed out than shot and even then I would only get shot with a blast of nagging due to over indulgence! :jester:.

We’ve no imminent plans to rerun them - when we asked about re-running the N gauge version there wasn’t enough interest and we sold fewer OO tanks IIRC. 

 

I’m sure that we will re-run them at some point though. 
 

cheers Mike
