A very good purchase on both parts. I got them both recently, but

with hindsight, and having watched the Class 205 on YouTube, I should have gone for the version with sound.

Just checked with my local model shop. I had one on order but they haven't turned up there yet. Thanks for the good news, though, BB.

My shop rang about an hour ago to say they had just arrived. I will have a Happy Easter now after all. Better than just hanging around.

Brighton Evening Argus, slight disappointment with no lights as it is pulling coaches that do have them! No worries will have to take a look on how to fit cabin

and direction light.

Hornby Sandringham, Butler Henderson, some old GF LNER stock new in box (not actually prototypical but they have something about them), bits and pièces to upgrade older models (such as smoke box handles) and C....d slow point motors with polarity switching

that are the easiest to fit, well thought out and the cheapest. They are also reliable according to people I know who installed them a while ago. The forthcoming Hush-Hush in its more detailed version is high on my list (impressive machine and LNER....)

Just had to get the Scaledale City Dry Cleaners - it is so like a building I was trying to scratch build it will save me the difficulty (particularly as its on the far side of the layout with another house in front!

All I have to do is add a window,

a chimney, repaint the roof Change the shop type and possibly render the walls!

Modelling the GWR in the Welsh Borders, and the Glyn Valley Tramway with quite a few bits from elsewhere!
