    Which at one point in its later career was spelt 'Weymout', as the 'h' was painted out in red. Someone slipped with the brush, methinks... Spotted a second hand model of it at the Shildon gathering today. Cost in the region of £120, probably because of its rarity.

    Its on one of the TVP dvds on 'Main Line to the West', or something to that effect. Quite a good one it is, too.

    Looks as though I had the same issue as you ADB as mine finally arrived this week and was duely returned 2 days later with 1 broken buffer and the smoke box door step completely broken off. The model looks pretty good at first glance bar the damage but I may make a couple of minor improvements that were suggested on the thread from the other forum where the chap improved his Railroad version.
