Picture please!

If you mean the 2-6-2 there’s only one someone lifted from Facebook and posted on NGRMonline, easy to find the thread if you sign up, can’t repost here due to copyright and the official announcement is  on Saturday.

OK, got it, 2 sand domes....  I presume the overall dimensions are very similar to the 4-6-0.  I wonder how one would look against a 7mm 4-6-0?

This beastie, although there are two very similar Davenport & Vulcan and I struggle to tell them apart. 

This is the HO ish Minitrains one next to the Bachmann 4-6-0 so probably gives a good idea of O vs On30

Bachmann 009 Baldwin

We've received the following - you should see them at your local shop super soon!

Cool. Must confess that the milk can does look very fetching in person, particularly behind the SR Green ‘Baldwin’

All very picturesque, but hardly representative of the British narrow gauge prototype.

 

Which national trader was going to pay for their own PO wagons, or to have their livery painted on a tiny company goods wagon, carrying a tiny proportion of their total goods sales?

 

..... and yes, I am aware of those very few POs who did so; (notably NOT national brands, but local traders).

But also what's the harm of a bit of what if? ;) The dairy traffic on the L&M could well have done something similar as a bit of local traffic. It makes a bit more for operations on our modules at a meet but equally we can run totally realistically at home where ops can be minimal. It just adds to the variety.

No harm whatsoever - so long as future generations are not mislead by present-day RTR.

I don’t think they are selling this as anything but a general model and with the plethora of info available on the UK ng lines and serious replies in prototype topics accurate representation is fairly easy to research.

Equally posing what if part of a large company concern like the SR day’s L&B had extended PO liveried wagons to the NG as a marketing campaign isn’t totally unreasonable. I created a fictional branch of the L&B for my modules to justify extra traffic and some of these rather nice special wagons. I operate sometimes as a totally accurate small branch with one engine in steam, pure L&B stock, and two to three trains in a whole real day and sometimes with a more intensive freelance service for a couple of hours with friends. One friend is far more rigorous in his adherence to prototype modelling at home but also enjoys this while we all know it’s not fully prototypical but just fun to dream sometimes with the rose tinted specs on ;)

Yes, I was aware of them; MOY were based at Colchester - fairly local to Southwold.

 

PEATE had some on the Welshpool and Llanfair; but, again, a local trader.

No - it's not; merely an observation.

 

As a list member, I understand that I am entitled to post my views; (as, apparently, you are entitled to post sarcasm).
