QUOTE (Edwin @ 12 Jun 2008, 15:41) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Kettles aren't my thing, but I think I know the following:

- All the Poole-developed Farish tender locomotives re-released after the Bachmann takeover were and still are loco drive.

- The first new design of Bachmann Farish tender loco was the V2, with inauthentic skirts between boiler and running board to conceal the drive, particularly obvious on the LNER green version.

- Possibly in response to criticism, Bachmann Farish have adopted tender drive for the Jubilee, much better received I believe.

- The Dapol Q1 has a tender motor driving the loco wheels via cardan shaft through the cab, as does the Dapol 9F and the new Ixion Manor.

- The Peco Collett has tender drive.
I don't know much in N but wasn't the collett mentioned for not having driving power like the Graham Farish V2?
