Robin,
Excellent work and further proof that a straight conversion can work in P4 and haul a decent load ( in this case 8 coaches).

That looks great, we need one of those for Slattocks, I have one in the cupboard to convert one day.

Ralph, If you want any help or advice on the conversion just let me know. I'm getting a dab hand at them now.

Ralph,
For my next visit to Slattocks with NAG I can bring 2 Bachmann Jubilees and a Bachmann Patriot to show you how good they can be.

Royal Signals with the other Bachmann Conversions I have completed; 4 Jubilees and 2 Patriots.
Just need a bit of weathering.

Thanks Robin and Dave. Would be most interested in learning more but right now I am working on this tender.

I am sure we will host another get together like the last one Dave once all this is over. It was a year last March when we had the last one, time flies. Our group enjoyed playing host and it would be nice to do it a bit more often but as you know right now the club is shut, I can't even get in to test my locos.
