    Having just started with 0 Gauge these are my Dapol locos. They all ran perfectly straight from the box and handle 2nd rad curves with ease. The Jinty was puchased as new but second hand and had been changed from LMS to BR before I got it.

    Imhave a couple of their 08 shunters and a couple of their Jinties. The 08's were a breeze to chip.

    Very nice

    There is something very solid about it. I am missing a couple of the grill covers but they are not available as spares.
    Very pleased with it.

    Thanks Andy but looking at the picture the grill covers are missing from there. They are the four in front of the cab. I need to get some very fine mesh from somewhere and cut them out.

    I have all of the above as well in different liveries except for the sentinel Shunter, I did make up a brass kit version but sold it on last year as I was tempted to buy the Dapol version. (The brass kit version was very heavy and noisy, hence the reason I sold it).

    You have a very nice collection there. :thumbs:

    Thanks Kimbo. When I had my 00 layout I had about 150 locos. Sold a batch that I didn’t run very often then bought more so up it crept again. Sold the whole lot early this year and started 0 gauge. Already have 7 locos in about 4 months so it looks like things are slowly building up again. Have to hide my wallet :giggle:

    Ah yes, how many times I’ve said or heard modellers say, “I’m only going to buy a couple of locos and a few wagons to shunt around” :avatar: it’s a very addictive hobby in any scale !
