Re: My DCC Journey

i would never consider repainting any of my locos, as to my mind, it would make them no longer original, and worth less. There is nothing to stop you having visiting locos on your layout. I have visiting ones from America and Germany. I have zero interest in any region or colour of locos. If hornby,...
