Tank Engines are getting the better of me I'm afraid. Never have enough of them on your layout.......

That's got to be a bargain Mike, £6.50 cheaper than that shop in Liverpool exclam:

Got to agree Alan, there's something about tank engines.

Quite agree with you Alan, there is just something about them I like watching running around on the layout.

Thanks guys,

Yes Tank Engines have an mystique of their own, (Pannier Tank Engines rule)
Have always liked them but for some reason they are really getting to me.

Stepney, (not a Thomas edition) has always been a favorite and on the shopping list)

Always of the belief that you can get two or three English style goods wagons in the same length as one US Box Car,

Two Tank Engines fit into the same length as one mainline Engine.

So bigger not necessarily Better er, just down to personal preference

I have two, both fitted with TCS Z2 decoders, which allow them to crawl at very slow speeds and to accelrate and brake very smoothly. 

My black BR one is an original Dapol production, while the LBSC one is Hornby. I love the LBSC "improved engine green" livery but I feel Hornby have used much too brown a shade for the yellow ochre. It is much too difficult to repaint it though and the finish is much better than anything I could achieve, so that's the way it is staying!

Like the real ones, the models are surprisingly powerful for their size and weight.

Will be interested to see how it runs. I have two Dapol Class 45xx tank engines and they are awful runners with no pulling power at all.
