Well its been well over a year since my last st eam buy, nothing new was brought in during 2017 but just now l pulled the trigger and bagged a Mamod SL1, it needs a good clean and a couple of new front buffers  but l am right pleased to have caught the bug again and look forward to its arrival😀

Mick, give me a few days to look through my spares box, I may have a couple of buffers you could have 😀

I'm also looking to make some upgrades for my loco I bought, give me a shout if your interested in anything.

Looks sweet as a nut mate 😁

Nice one, Mick. Aside from the missing buffers, looks to be a very nice example indeed. Well done on bagging another bargain. 
Keep calm & steam on
