I note that Roundhouse have released a new slip eccentric locomotive to the basic range.
It is a 0-4-2 locomotive with tender. It comes with manual control as standard but, radio control and other enhancements are available.
I have ordered one with radio control fitted and painted in Deep Brunswick Green.

Bad for you having all this time off Casey :devil::devil: but if you can hit the button to place the order, you must be feeling a bit better.

It is a rather nice looking loco, certainly has a different look.

It does give me time to catch up on my reading. It also means I have three Roundhouse locomotives on order which will be picked as they become available from Doncaster. Lots to look forward too.

To me, it almost looks 'mamod-esque'.. Though in an upmarket version. :)

<pedant>
Should the Thread title not read "Roundhouse.." :think:
<pedant off>

Nice colour! :):nod::nod:

It should and did when I typed it out. I've corrected it now. Thanks Phil.

I've seen something similar in 1:1 land, but can't think where - senior moment :confused:

Perhaps the cab reminds me of the Llanberis Lake locos

I was going to order the Roundhouse Jennie but I decided to order the new Accucraft Sabrina saddle tank due out about June next year.

I had a trip to Doncaster today to pick up my “Jennie” from the good people at Roundhouse Engineering.
I had specified a number of extras including pressure gauge and radio control.

Here she is in the morning sunshine. Unfortunately running in cannot take place at the CFR until I reinstate the missing track. However she might get an outing at the Abberton Valley Railway next week.

Nice looking basic loco, tender also crying out for a coating of Real Coal.

My “Jennie” class locomotive Himalayan Bird has been on the rolling road for the last couple of days.

Here she is with a full head of steam, 30lbs of pressure going nowhere fast.

It's an attractive looking loco - but that tender does need a little something. The coal rails are a little bit too simplistic, but I'm sure Casey can work a bit of detailing magic ;););)

Gosh!
They are enormous! :)

Do they have (to be said in a Welsh accent..) "The power of a million candles!"? :giggle::giggle:
