Bachmann Class 3200 Duke Dog. I had no kind things to say about B'mann, but Sam's Reviews has shown me that many manufacturers have
had quality control problems, and that not all products are bad because of a few bad apples. This 3200 is proving out to be a magnificent
piece with slow and smooth speed control.

An RNFE 278-007 body for my Electrotren triple BO bogied test mule chassis courtesy of Hornby.
The Electrotren chassis is a superb runner and getting hold of a boxed body for it really ices the cake.

Edit - actually turns out to be 278-018-7

Most people are shocked when they find out how bad I am as an electrician

Well, this piece I received as part of a Wrenn clockwork set in 1966 whilst living abroad in the UK. Every time I see it, or pick it up, it feels
new. It has miraculously survived 10,000's of thousands of miles of being moved about, mislaid, damaged goods, etc. and is in mint
condition. Every time I fire up Henley, I like to run the old girl. When I got into British trains, in 1991, this piece was the "seed" for Henley.
