Lima Class 37/5 37673 in Railfreight Distribution livery and Hornby 'Balfour Beatty' Sentinel

Two new engines for Dales Peak

As I said in my last post, I did pick up a couple of engines for Dales Peak while I was at the Peak Model Railway Exhibition. They where a Lima Class 37/5 37673 in Railfreight Distribution livery and a Hornby Sentinel in ‘Balfour Beatty’ livery.

I’m happy to trial them both as they are at the moment, but I will probably do some work to both of them in time. The Lima pancake motor will definitely need upgrading and both of them need decoders.

Happy Birthday to me… Dales Peak gets some new traction

Well, today was my birthday (Err Hum years old!) and I was lucky enough to receive two new additions to Dales Peaks’ traction, a Lima Class 47 and a Hornby Class 56 with sound.

This is it now! Anything I’ve described before on ‘Dales Peak Mk 4’ has long since gone via eBay, etc. (During the down time). Now Dales Peak is starting to come to life again it’s time to expand the fleet.

The Hornby Class 56 ‘Harworth Colliery’ was bought locally, with my birthday money, from my very friendly Loughborough Model Centre in Derby.

The Lima Class 47 my good wife bought for me online, from Classiccover Collectables on eBay, who provided a very prompt delivery for my birthday.
