Just a selection of a few locos on the Towcaster roster, mostly recent photos, hope you enjoy.

A slightly scruffy looking 72xx 7229 hauls a coal train, this Hornby loco runs nicely and not a bad hill climber is a bit slow.


Another scruffy loco is Black 5 44781 waits for the road in Ashby station on a loop


A surpisingly good hauler is the little Bachmann Ivatt 2MT 46521 now with DCC Concepts nano decoder, in this shot passing Adolphus Square Station with a fitted mixed freight.


B17 61650 Grimsby Town descends the bank down to Towcaster (New) past Adolphus Square station, this 1 in 33 is easy meat for the Hornby B17 both up and down.

Congratulations, the pictures are an improvement over the battles with the Z21.

I'm sure you could take an action against Roco under some obscure EU rule or regulation, they seem to pop up everywhere.

Right MMD but that would be pointless, I know that firms will spend huge amounts to protect themselves in law suits as it opens pandoras box regardless that fixing the problem would be cheaper, small guys like me would be crushed just not worth the risk, its cheaper to right the thing off and then try something else. Now anyway I'm not trying to trash Roco simply trying to get the best out of my hobby with the pious hope that the items I buy do what they should do.

OK so another steamer

Lanky 2-4-2tank often called 'Old faithful' finds work in the twilight of its career at Towcaster, here on a local train it passes the out road from Towcaster loco.

Thanks David nice to get some feedback.

So today we see austerity/O7 90448 climbing past Adolphus Square station with a coal train, this is not a bad climber and is proving to be sure footed.

Another view near to Adolphus Square as K1 62027 passes on an unfitted train, a very nice loco indeed, very pleased with it so far.
