I bought one of these today for Porlock my OO9 layout, so I have a collection of various OO9 locos and this is the latest. In fact I was at the big show in Shepton Mallet and talked with the Peco sales manager Steve and he mentioned how good he thought this model is. I said I had never seen one and he pointed across the way and a stand did indeed have such a thing, so I coffed up the necessary £135 for the item.

OK it is red not green so I did ask they produce a green one - well maybe next year.

So I got it home and unpacked it and promptly lost the front coupling, no idea where that went - it's an escape artist, any way it went on the track and was very quiet, the Bachman double Fairlie hums a bit but this was mouse like without any eek eek!, it also ran quite quickly and towed a decent load straight from the box.

Steve was obviously pleased with the model and told me it was worth a punt.

Anyway that was a good steer so it joins the Double Fairlee and the Baldwin RODs as really useful engines. Just a shame about the Heljans.

Photo to follow soon

I did find the front coupling it had landed and then hidden itself under a tiny tree - the cheeky chappie, anyway has been pulling loads as well in reverse now (chimney's must always point uphill.

Well the coupling rods and crank fell off on one side being evident there is a tiny, very tiny plastic pin holding it in place, as I looked at it the other side then fell out, bit poor this bit of engineering, and it was not roughly handled
