Thank you. I suppose I could pretend I had a third rail. In fact I could add a third rail.

Great aren't they? I got the Express Parcels version and fitted running lights to it. R-

certainly very happy with it and runs very well for an ebay purchase,

What lights did you use? as I think lights will be the next step it would certainly make it look very smart

I used to have one of those when I used to model the GWR. Is a rare case when the model will haul more then the real thing. Mine was a Lima example like the one in the picture which looks the same.

I have treated myself to a Gaugemaster 'Q' four track controller. It takes up a lot less space than the HM Duette plus HM 2000 side by side, and I can arrange the control knobs to all twiddle in the same direction, very helpful when passing a train from one section to another. Saves a little bit of thinking!! It is also a lot quieter.

Hi Chris, sorry for delay, I've been away for a few days and it's taken me all morning to remember where the light kit came from. I used this product from Express Models. They are very helpful if you get stuck. R-
