Since their release in December 2009, Banbury Connections has been impressed at the reliability and performance of Bachmann's 3MT Tank locomotives. Following an initial purchase of a BR Lined Green model, a BR Lined Late Crest Black and BR Lined Early Crest Black version were purchased second hand. Through a fortunate turn of events, Banbury Connections has managed to acquire a fourth 3MT in BR Green (unlined and weathered) for an extremely advantageous price from Cheltenham Shed (Cheltenham Model Centre). The new addition can be seen below on its running in trials around Wrexham General.

The rolling stock update is produced by BRED and looks at changes and repairs of notable interest to the Banbury Connections fleet. Some past projects can be found under the resources section of the website. If you are curious about the performance of a particular locomotive feel free to contact us and I will endeavour to provide a fair assessment of any models we own.
