Newton Broadway seems to have fallen through a worm hole and ended up in the Sydney (Australia) area, sometime in the late 1970s or early 1980s, at a guess!

Interurban V set V4 in original 'blue goose' livery passes one of the first batch of Mercedes 0305 buses in original livery. The V sets were built in batches over nearly 20 years, with the first sets, to a slightly different pattern, entering service in 1970, while the last build went into service in 1989. Early ones have been withdrawn, but quite a few of the later ones are still in service. The model is from Auscision, and was a little bit of an extravagance on my part (tax refund!).

Moving back to southern England, and just after the end of steam on the Southern Region, around 1967/8. A class 33 D6520 hauls 4TC set 416, probably heading for Weymouth. For the return journey, the set will be driven from the 4TC cab with the 33 pushing. At Bournemouth, the TC will be attached to a 4 REP EMU at the London end, probably with another 4TC at the Weymouth end. The 33 will uncouple and the REP will take the TCs on to London. The 33 will wait at Bournemouth for the next incoming REP/TC/TC combination, and pull one or both TCs to Weymouth ... and so on. This went on until the mod 1980s, when the class 442 5-WES units took over the services, by then electrified all the way to Weymouth.

The 4TC units were versatile and, while their main reason for being was the London - Bournemouth-Weymouth service, they did pop up elsewhere, with a couple of (re-formed) units even finding their way into London Underground Limited's ownership for special services after BR had finished with them.

A very nice collection of rolling stock... I remember the red EFEs from my childhood and I’ve ridden the V4 sets from Sydney to the Blue Mountains and back I think?

Here we go again, this time with some more modern diesels and an electric. All of the named examples have etched plates fitted, either as supplied by the manufacturer, or bought as third party add-ons.

Listing them in numerical class order, class 58 is represented by three Heljan locos:

58 017 is in the class' original "red stripe" railfreight grey livery.

58 004 is in the pre-privatisation Mainline livery adapted from the previous Railfreight 'triple grey' livery.

58 024 is in the privatisation era EW&S livery, which was later simplified slightly to just EWS.

P_20190117_215559_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Next is my solitary class 59, 59 005 Kenneth J Painter, which has a Lima body on a newer Hornby chassis. I have fitted head and white marker lights at this end only. I will try to do a neater installation at the other end in the future, but I don't see the need to waste my efforts on working tail lights.


P_20190117_212230_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Class 60 is next, with three Hornby examples in my collection:

60 077 Canisp is in the intermediate triple grey Mainline livery.

60 078 is in the 'proper' Mainline aircraft blue, and is heavily weathered.

60 048 is in EWS maroon, with the later branding style than 58 024.

P_20190117_215407_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Class 66 is well represented, with all being Bachmann examples.

EWS 66 089 came to me as a very heavily weathered example - a bit too heavily weathered for my liking. I de-weathered it a little and renumbered it while I was in the process of repainting sections.

66 701 Whitemoor is in the attractive GBRf blue and orange livery.

66 522 is in the very distinctive Freightliner/Shanks livery.

66 610 is in standard Freightliner livery and has the later style headlamps.

66 407 and 66 412 are in DRS 'compass' livery. 66 412 is a little bit of a hybrid with a later body style but an earlier chassis fitted - bought like that with sound fitted so worth the asking price.

66 425 Sunderland is in First GBRf livery.

The new Vossloh class 68s from Dapol are attractive models. 68 002 Intrepid and 68 003 Astute feature next, with both in DRS livery.

P_20190117_214422_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


The GEC Class 70 can not be called attractive by any stretch of the imagination, although Bachmann's model is superb. The real ones earned the nickname "Ugly Bettys". 70 003 shown here is in Freightliner Powerhaul livery.


P_20190117_213624_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Based on the class 60 styling, but with more rounded contours, class 92 dual voltage electric locomotives were slightly more attractive. 92 022 Charles Dickens is in Railfreight Distribution livery. This is a Hornby body with a modified Hornby class 60 chassis and modified lighting. I do have more accurate 3D-printed pantographs to fit when I get around to it.


P_20190117_215816_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Finally, and on a completely different tack, a new addition which cost as much as a locomotive is the CMX track cleaner from the USA.

Nice group of locos there Jeff Those Shanks/freightliner KMRC 66's where going for a stupid price a few years back for some reason.

That CMX cleaner was a good buy i have had one for many years and works really well mind you they require a good diesel to pull them.

The CMX Track Cleaner wagon had its first test run this evening. I top-and-tailed it with two Heljan class 33/1 locos, although one was more than capable of shifting it, as the second half of this video demonstrates.

Just spent a very enjoyable half hour or so catching up Jeff - what a lot you've been up to !!

The first thing that grabbed me was just how much stock you have  :shock:   Several pages back, Max asked if you'd changed rooms because he'd noticed you have a fair old collection there.  Have you any idea how many locos/power cars you have ?

Some fabulous sound files too - very authentic and, IMHO, add a massive amount to the realism (provided you don't try to run them all together).

The CMX is a brilliant addition.  I've got one too and it's an absolute life-saver on any sizeable layout where you can't easily reach all the track for cleaning.  Not only is it easy to use, it's fun and very efficient too.  You won't regret the investment.  :thumbs   Because I model (or was modelling) steam to diesel change-over, I don't have any diesels with the umph to pull it solo so I either use 2 locos or a US outline GP40 on mine.  I need to buy a green Class 37 for the purpose but  they're either like hen's teeth or stupidly priced....................

Looking forward to the next installment. :cheers
