Re: RH Double Fairlie

That makes sense, since Taliesin was also non-adjustable. Do we have any ideas about pricing?

Re: Archangel Range

What a wonderful job you've done! Does it work now? Have you tested it?

Re: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step...

Wow, what a great coincidence about that Caradoc! I look forward to seeing more about it. Millie was my first choice and has been for a number of years, but the slip-eccentric valve gear has put me off somewhat, since I really like a little more realism when I play with trains. That and it basically...

Re: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step...

Sounds good to me! For the George\Mildred you may have no choice but to go down the kit route, since RH stopped producing finished locos last year (or the year before, don't remember). Caradoc is rather handsome, I do agree. I now somewhat regret that I never got hold of a John Sutton Meeting while ...

It's good to hear that I am not the only one who takes their time with these things! May I ask, what are you considering for your next purchase?

Re: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step...

Thank you, Ian.

I still have time to give it some thought, of course. Your advice is always welcome.

Re: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step...

Sorry, Ian, I completely misread your previous message (serves me right for reading on the bus), I thought that you had only seen the L&M loco. While Lady Anne does fulfil this theme, I am not so keen on her simply because she's so... "generic"; it seems as if everyone has one, I would like somethin...

Re: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step...

Thank you for your advice! I agree with all of Andrew's comments. The Silver Lady has a more Victorian appearance for me than the Lady Anne. Why not go along to some local Association meetings and see if others are operating some of your possible loco's? The only one on your list I've not seen "in t...

Re: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step...

More thoughts regarding my railway: I had earlier decided on purchasing an Accucraft IoM Mona for my first loco since it fits the theme of late Victorian/early Edwardian that I am going for. However, after reading a rather encouraging post about the quality of customer service from Roundhouse, I hav...

Re: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step...

Hello everyone! Things have been a bit quiet around here of late, and I have decided that this needs to change. I don't have any more drawings to show off, but I have some more ideas, this time pertaining to rolling stock liveries. The obvious choice for the carriages would be the typical Great West...

Re: IP Coach Kits

I have to admit, I like the sound of real glass, although I would be quite worried about their fragility... I had a look at the Timpdon coaches and they seem to be a very good choice, mostly because of their length; it would help me to make the most of the space I have available to me.

There's, of course, nothing stopping me from getting a set of both now that I think about it... ;) Thanks for your help!

Re: IP Coach Kits

The reason I am umming and ahhing about this is because of these things.I am considering the IP coaches simply because they are 13 cm shorter than the Swift Sixteen coaches. It's a big difference when you really want to maximise the space available.

IP Coach Kits

Hello all! I've been looking at the IP Engineering kits for freelance coaches and they seem to be of a much more reasonable length compared with the Swift Sixteen Classic Bogie coaches. Does anyone have any experience with these kits? Do they go together easily? How easy are they to paint and colour...
