Looks stunning. Think I’d need a pristine and weathered version.

It can be arranged. ;)

I’m not usually a diesel fan but this one runs so well I picked one up for myself to run as an occasional visitor to Low Ghyll.

Wow - how good does that look ! ...... great job Steve as always.

Looking forward to seeing it slightly weathered and coupled to the associated DBSO....... push-pull services will soon be the order of the day on Montgreenan.

Thanks - Richard

Ps - For those not familiar - attached is the prototype image I asked Steve to try to recreate - I think we can all agree that he nailed it perfectly.

That’s a wrap. Class 47 and DBSO finished.
Thanks to Railtec Transfers (again).

Steve,

That looks amazing and I am looking forward to getting it on the layout with a full rake of coaches....... thanks for your usual attention to detail and pursuit of perfection - I think this will be a stand-out on the layout for sometime to come.

Cheers Richard

Ps - I am amazed by what appears to be a slight haze in the first photo just above the exhaust port - it looks so real.

That’s the shadow of the signals on the backscene - happy accident. :D

It’s on its way.
