I thought they were sold out so thank you for this link.
I get where 34C is coming from and I also appreciate Babs point of view. I wasn't going to buy one as I only ever saw Deltics on the GN main line and as I have so often boringly reminded folks I model BR fifties/early sixties Great Eastern. I can have a variety of large LNER steam engines as I spotted A3s, A1s, A2s and A4s at Cambridge. Top Shed had a running in turn to Cambridge and back for locos that had been serviced or repaired ............ oh and diversions via Ely when the GN main line north of Hitchin was closed for any reason. What I never saw in Cambridge was a Deltic. I presume that Finsbury Park had no requirement for such a running in turn (fitters supplied on East Coast services perhaps).
I also have a Bachmann 55 and DP1. What a livery .......... the excitement of seeing the original Deltic growling at speed through Sandy can never be forgotten; a B16/3 wheezing up the incline to take it over the mainline with Deltic speeding south under that very bridge; etched in my memory.
So all that means that I do not need the Accurascale model ............... but then I followed the link and there it was ........... Pinza . with full sound. Yes it was 34C with his Woooommmm .......... voooooom ........... wooooompa etc that did it for me. Happy memories ........... brings me right back to my pimply youth. So I ordered one just a few minutes ago. Now I have to imagine that Pinza was rostered to haul a Newmarket Races special from Kings Cross to .. well Newmarket. No room to stable or service the train at Newmarket so it ran through to Bury St.Edmunds where it would run round, wait a few hours then ease back to Newmarket to pick up the winners/losers/drunks and take them back to London. S'my railway but I would like to know if that did ever happen.
