As someone returning to the N gauge scene after 6-7 years out, I was keen to see what engines were out there and the internet was the place to look. How disappointing was the steam loco range from Backmann Graham Farish, not a lot is there, the big four are very poorly represented if at all and most GWR engines seem to be BR era.

On an up note Dapol was not around last time I was modelling as far as I know, so refreshing to see some nice steam locos there with good detail.

Thoughts?

Hi Swingcats,

Don't forget to look at the new Peco Collett. It's a bit pricy but has good detail and is already DCC chipped.

I too was a little disappointed with the GF Range but, in additiion to the RTR GWR locos have bought a GF King & Castle in BR Green which I intend to re-livery courtesy of Fox Transfers. Altogether with GF, Dapol and Peco I have put together a stable of 12 locos so far and GF are promising a Hall in 3 liveries later this year. I'll probabaly get 2 and re-number/re-name one of them.

The table below gives a full list of my current stable + plans for expansion.

King 4-6-0 BR Green - To be re-liveried Graham Farish GF\372551 Hattons King James II - BR Green
