They arrived - I am sure many other IRM members know the feeling that I experienced today when these beauties arrived from OO Works.

The GNRi U Class 4-4-0 and the all black UG Class 0-6-0.

Well worth waiting for.

I thought that they had sold out. I know that Leslie of Provincial Wagons has been trying to get a rerun of the UG, so what’s your secret?

Was that top of their list for ones found unsold or returned? As far as I know they have not produced any more.

Well done Tony securing a U class.  Lovely loco.  If I had one I would have needed to add power pickups to the pony truck to get over my points, or alternatively fit 'keep-alive' capacitors to something like a Lenz Gold decoder.  4-4-0 will look great on Omagh junction.

ooooh.   Very sharp intake of breath there.     The UG class is a fine looking little model.  Well wear sir.

I was told that the UG was actually assembled from parts they had in stock which is why it was unlined and available in black only. Something of a rarity.

Congrats Tony on the acquisitions - I guess like me, most would have received their U & UG a year apart, so you've probably experienced double the exhilaration!!!  The UG looks well in the unlined black too.  Looking forward to seeing the locos in action and to seeing the layout develop.

Thanks Des, I'm cutting the ply back scenes at the moment so won't bring the locos into the shed until the dust settles!

Yes, indeed and I had a quick run with them tonight, excuse the poor quality video

Great to have a fully authentic GNR(I) train!!  Looks like a good job on the baseboard joints too, very smooth!
