Loving the new look Andy especially the EMU's and the video was great - loved the clickity click of the units.

 

I think you'll need a 4-VEP too once in funds!

Thanks Paul, I missed a 4VEP in NSE when debating over an extra tenner.:cry:

 

So I bought the Blue Grey CEP instead, love it.:dancer:

It will be nice to get some more Liveries later on Paul.

 

How many 47's are you having and what Liveries?

Just the 1970's blue version Andy

 

I have one of the original Heljan green versions so it will be interesting to compare the differences. I suspect there wll be a number of these available on the second hand market (and probably for ridiculous sums if Hattons prices are to be believed!). I got mine from Tower back in the day when they were selling them off for £295!

And £295 was expensive compared to OO at the time. My 47 was an original Blue, and I took a motor out and used an OO chip in it, as could be heard on the videos, and it was a great runner as well.

Been out and weathered the Track.

 

I made a start on Monday afternoon and finished it off today, then a GOOD RUNNING SESSION purely for testing purposes you understand, NOT for pleasure.

You would have heard the mind the gap man if you travelled on the London Underground ,when you stopped at a curved platform .His voice boomed out round the station whenever a train stopped  perhaps an annoucement when your units stop in the platform.

Had I know I was having Passenger stuff, I would have gone for a Different Station Layout, probably along the almost strait bit, or even hiding it under a bridge.

Looking good - although I’d be inclined to head back to the 90s and stay there as the freight was way more interesting , and were the locos, than anything 2005 plus .

Totally agree, the end of the 90;s with Sector, Mainline, Transrail,  Loadhaul still lingering on, on some Locos and the beginning of EW&S 66's.  But I do also love the DB Shenker Red and the Colas of today, again its an area I may ADD to when funds permit. I must admit to keep looking at pics of Ian, @TemeraireTidworth, and  @class"66" and @saxokid  various threads and thinking, so it is a possibility long term. 

 

The Passenger would be the same as I currently have, so no change there at all.

Again, not sure if its just me, but over the last few days I have a NEW Boots and other Adds that appears as a strip, top right of the screen and COVERING the Contents I follow link, and there is, NO "X" to get rid of it, so I now have to go to the bottom of the page and use that Contents I follow link, once I've KILLED OFF the rolling Add from the right hand side, that is usually hiding that one. :angry:

 

I may have some time out of here, as I'm finding it very frustrating at the moment.
