IP Engineering Jessie rebuild

So I've recently acquired an IP Jessie diesel from the interweb, seems complete although it's apparently got glued wheels (45mm) which will need modifying and the general finish is a bit rough but will do for now. Haven't had a chance to test it yet but the wiring seems to be all connected up, will ...

Millie is the best option.
Except direction can't be controlled via R/C which is what OP is looking for. Excellent loco though :D
Billie, Katie or Lady Anne are definitely the best if you have the money to spare!

Re: First Steam Loco

Millie is the best option. We've had several and a few members have started with Millie's and they are still their favourites. You get a basic engine which can be very customisable with various bits from Roundhouse (cab, some/GWR bonnet). Edrigs are also a good option although they are much bigger t...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

My 23 has the opposite problem; tips over everything in front of it (annoyingly including the Toastrack). As promised, pictures of some of the freight wagons: IMG_20190629_200750_resize_43~2.jpg IMG_20190629_200742_resize_48~2.jpg Yes Beddgelert has arrived! The overhang is incredible, no bogie carr...

FR locomotive red code

Hi all,

Looking for a reference to the FR locomotive "Indian red" livery as carried by Taliesin and Merddin Emerys currently. Does any FR buffs have any close match codes?

Re: Mark 2 Baby Garratt

Hi all,

Just to inform you that no. 17 is no longer available.

A K1 and a 7/8ths version will have pictures soon (these have been already sold but may appear in the future).

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Looking great Andrew.
I promise to do a historic NWNGR/WHR photoshoot tomorrow for everyone on this forum!
What red are you using for the waggons? I'm using the light grey for some WHR wagons but I want to do some in the red as a difference.

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

So what's the green used on the Colonel Stephens livery? Nobody seems to know what the actual colour is used on the Ffestiniog railway today. John I'm using Humbrol 76 and 100 for the Col. Stephens livery. This seems to be roughly correct, the carriages seem to weather pretty quick in the Welsh Sun...
