Some fine bargains there Steven. The 141 in as preserved livery is a steal at that price. Thanks for the heads up.

Have bought plenty from Modelfair and they're really good. Mind you, I went to buy off them recently and postage to the Republic has skyrocketed. Check the postage price before you confirm your order!

Gent, will keep that in mind. Their 2nd hand section sometimes has some nice gear.

Please note it is Summer sale from Modelfair.

 

I know but what a great deal on 141 RPSI at that price you would be tempted to buy 2 and renumber one into 142. You would even be saving on postage

I've moved the retailers and pricing conversation to a seperate thread as it had dragged this one completely off topic.

Just looking on the murphymodels site and it says that a 201 of each livery will be released but I don't see a revised old Enterprise full yellow end 201 listed. Why no 207 or 233? I know the next 201s due are 209 in NIR blue and 230 in the old Enterprise yellow panel livery. We got 201 and 210 in the new IE and 203 and 220 in the old IE but left out the second best looking 201 livery.:confused:

 

I know I can get any mm 201 repainted but I'd like to get one out of the box.

Just looking at the two locos side by side highlights how much better the correct yellow front looks. It's a pity this mistake happened. :(

I think he means the incorrect yellow 'smiley face' on the MM model, its not quite smiley enough :)

 

207 looks fantastic, I really like this livery with the full yellow face.

Hi everyone,

 

First of all, I do like 207 and I wouldn't mind 233 in the same livery/condition. Lovely models these are and I currently have five of them in my fleet in the form of 201, 8208, 210, 222 and my beast 229. As much as I love the weathering, I think I would prefer to have 233 in pristine condition as my excuse for this is that I can park it near my old decrepid Lima train washer on the access track. Although thanks to ModelFair having a sale, I can buy a couple of donor locomotives as I would like to have 221 in the same livery as my 222 and 229 but weathered to make it look more realistic ;). Without going too off-topic, I have a question regarding the real GM Class 201's. Would anyone know if these locomotives have a loud turbo howl when in Notch 8? I ask this because the MP40PH's that Go Transit use have the same EMD 710 prime mover and they make a nice howl in Notch 8. So I was just wondering if the GM Class 201's made a similar noise.

 

Thanks

Ash.

Great picture I've only ever seen one other picture and that's the one with 208 and 209 on the lagan bridge

So whats the story with the two 201's ? Did one fail and need to be hailed back?
