@Warbonnet - Yesterday you said; Look out for more pics in the coming days... [sic] - is today not one of those days?

PS. Not being impatient or anything like that but I am in the twilight years of my life and I've little else to get up for.

Gorgeous!!! I can't remember if I ordered A36 or A54 but either way both of them look gorgeous, cant wait to see what those day-glo panels are like :)

Hate to ask this before the current models even arrive but... 

Will there be a possibility of the two A classes that ran preserved on the mainline being released in model form? (A3r and A39).

I think that the IRM model of A39R is in her current preserved livery?

Although, yes, it would be lovely to see her in her nineties silver livery when IRM do a re-run!

Well, of course, he is - MUCH better locos - Class 37s still flying past my local station taking younger electric friends off to be scrapped!

It’s a heavily disguised A class for a late 60s movie contract - Darling Lili - starring a very poorly J15, No 184, which could manage enough steam to make an impression but not move very much. The A was disguised to provide starting and stopping power. I understand it worked some service trains in this guise in between takes.

An a class is in there somewhere! tis on the film thread on this forum, Darling Lilli, pushed a steamer whilst under cover.

Page 34 of Barry Carse's Metro Vicks book has a colour picture of it

Think the loco was A16.

Even the far cab on this side of that photo was still in IR livery. It's a real pity it never ran in service like that. It would make a great model.

The amazing thing is that even after seeing that hideous paint scheme full size, the management ordered it for the 201s anyway. They would have looked a million times better in tippex.
