OO Works J15 arriving at Woodvale junction hauling the 17:45 express from Kingsbridge.

I love the Absolutely beautiful J15 and she is a super smooth runner well able to crawl at low speed over insulfrog points and yet haul six 62ft coaches with ease. Will convert to DCC, apply transfers and weather in due course. Hope this photo doesn't cause @jhb171achill to faint. B&T + J15 in one photo may be too much nostalgia. Now I'll have to kit bash some six wheelers from the Tri-Ang era.

I’ve got through half of my months’ supply of smelling salts looking at that picture!

As a result, I will be voluntarily returning to the Home for the Bewildered, Insane, and Imbecilic.

When my own package arrives from 00 Works, I’m afraid I’ll need more medication......!

Congrats to Roderick & Co at 00 Works!

Much dribble over the J15- ruined two jumpers already! It certainly looks a great model.

I could PM you a bib :) This 0-6-0 proves a very reliable and smooth runner with excellent power pickup running slowly over insulfrog Peco points without any hesitation nor jerking. I suspected 0-6-0 would be a safer bet for a good running steam model. Very happy and fortunate to have one of these.

@jhb171achill this has to be boxed up wrapped and put under the tree before I’m allowed do any work on it. :( doh.
