Hi lads,

 

Went into Marks on Hawkins street for a DCC chip and a chinwag and came out with the new Bachmann 4F. Beautiful loco with great detail and I'm sure she'll be a sweet runner. I couldn't leave it there for the price as it was only €90 which was around €7 cheaper than Hattons when you factor in postage (and there's no week long wait!)

 

Well done Marks, great value and service as per usual! :D

The Bachmann 3F is also worth looking at very close to the NCC 0-6-0s and a good basis for the more modern GSWR & DSER types & 461.

The main draw back with a rtr conversion is that apart from the Northern Companies and DSER few locos had a straight running plate like the 3 or 4F, most Southern locos either had squiggly or raised running plates which are difficult to model and a major part of the character of the Irish locos.
