I had a reward in mind for myself if I made the planned progress on Saturday, and since I did, here it is:
Showing up all the flaws
A Bachmann 45XX , so that at long last I actually have a GWR loco. The last one I had was a Triang "Albert Hall" back in 1968. The small catch is that as far as I know this class never ran on the Tanat Valley and really a 2MT 2-6-0 would be more appropriate, or a 58xx. On the other hand I've lusted after one ever since the original Lima version came out.
The coach is equally unlikely to have seen service on the TVR, being a Bachmann suburban Mk1. You'll be glad to hear I have flush glazing on order for it.
