New Class 37

Here is my first ever new N gauge loco - its a Bachmann/Farish class 37 in large logo BR blue - 37417 "Highland Region".

Gilly treated me for my forthcoming birthday (thanks! ;-) ) during a visit to Hatton's "new" shop out in Liverpool.

Initial impressions are very good - the loco pulled 2 old coaches along our "test track" at a very slow crawl straight out of the box - probably helped by having drive and pickup to all 12 wheels. The track has laid in the garage for 18 months and my 45+ year old Marshal III power control unit is not the best power supply ever, so this is even more impressive.

Great things are expected - there's Kato Unitrack on its way and who knows what next?
