    well,

    I think we have been going a bit O gauge crazy lately, so to address the balance ..... here is some news of a few OO scale prizes that will be there for the taking shortly. ( just as soon as Hattons deliver them :avatar:)

    I class 43xxx Rod ( early crest and weathered )
    1 class 05 Diesel ( BR green yellow ends and wasps )
    1 class 16 Diesel ( BR green large yellow ends )

    these come courtesy of Platform 1

    keep your eyes open for the competitions as they have to be won. The only thing between you and the prizes ...... is entering ..... so get your fingers out.

    cheers

    The Locos arrived from Hattons on Wednesday. I'll try and get some photos up later tonight. Hopefully there will be a competition being announced soon.

    Cheers

    A picture or three of the above ....

    First up its the Class 3000 BR Rod .....


    and a wee sneak peak ........


    it comes weathered and DCC Ready so you will need a decoder if you are not operating it DC.


    and the next up is Loco D8407 which is a class 16 in BR green with full yellow ends ......


    and here it is ......


    Tension couplings come in the box.


    and last for now is loco 2502 which is a neat little Hunslet ...


    again, tension lock couplers come supplied in the box. little pockets just pop out ....


    The cab lifts off very easily so go easy when you lift it out of the box.


    and that concludes our OO gauge loco prizes for the time being.

    Now ....... if you want to be in with a chance of winning any of the above ...... keep your eyes open for our competitions. they all need to be won ......... and ...... its free to enter as always.

    cheers

    We'll the class 16 has been won by redpiperbob, well done Bob. However the Rod and the Hunslet are still in the mix. The Rod currently features in our Xmas 2018 Christmas competition so if you want it ( and also a OO scale rolling road ) then look up the competition in the competition section.

    Also ...... I can confirm that there will be another NCE powercab control system to be won on the lead up to Christmas courtesy of Platform1 so stay tuned.

    Cheers for now.

    The Powercab arrived today in the post. Pretty quick as I only ordered it a few days ago.

    Pictures later and it will be out via some sort of competition on the run up to Christmas so keep your eyes open.

    Cheers

    Ok,

    The Rod has been won by Timbersurf along with an OO scale rolling road in the 2018 OO Xmas competition.

    Coming up next is the Hunslet Class 05 in BR green. The competition rules will be published shortly so keep an eye open. Just as a heads up, it will be based around John Wiffens latest kit ....... the layout in a box file ........ more on this later.

    Cheers

    Toto

    Ignore last. Found it. End of March.

    I may be struggling with finance to progress enough to contribute so may have to sit it out.
