Absolutely fantastic work on the Pannier Tank, love it! I'm really impressed with your 3D design and printing, quite amazing how much detail you've done. Pannier Tanks are great, I've also made one and am using the motor of a Thomas on a new build too - it certainly runs quieter with all the extra gears removed... It's also interesting to note that the gearbox can be sawn in half....

The 57xx had a quick chance to stretch its legs today. I still need to load a whistle sound to it but the computer is tied up at the moment with other tasks!

57xx first run

Fantastic, looks and sounds great. Every railway needs a pannier tank!
