That is good value. I paid about the same or even more for a pack of 3 at a recent model show.

Yes Terry, it does seem to be a good buy. I am looking forward to trying it out. Hoping it will be here by Saturday.

I like the weathered look, may be to do with how weathered Mrs Panniertank is looking now a days

My layout is a model of an imaginary part of BR in around 1957 so I am going for weathered. However if I was doing a preserved railway (which is a great way of being able to any engines you fancy) I would go for clean and shinny

If anyone is worried about spoiling a perfectly good new engine there are a fair few professional weathers out there and for around 20 will do a super job.

You have done a decent job of that and have not gone OTT.
I can go with that.
Love the wagon with the scap iron and well weathered. It fits perfectly.
I am getting the urge to give it a go with my airbrush.
I say that because when I look at the class 37 on the heading image of this forum, it is beautifully weathered and it looks real.
But what has suddenly dawned on me is that my Hornby class 37 is blue but I think that is the colour of the plastic and they have to start somewhere.
And it's too shiney!
So......I will seek out the colour that best matches the said image and start off with a blue that I am happier with.
Needs to be a darker, matter kind of blue and not " in yer face torquise "

Thanks Pete. The blackengine was done by Grimy Times. She was 100.

Don't understand.
Is that 100 to have it blackened?

Hi Pete - I think that's what the loco cost in that condition. I have been to a number of exhibitions where Grimy Times have models on display, they are very good and the prices are "reasonable" - I'm not sure whether (excuse the pun) their loco's are always brand new.

I just had a looked at TMC (The Model Centre) and they charge between 35/55 to weather your loco with 4.95 p&p. Again they are very good, and they have a very large selection of loco's ready to go - I believe most of their stock is new. They are worth a look at.

Hi Pete.

No, 100 is for the brand new engine and weathering.
