Banbury Connections recently took delivery of another BR Standard 3MT Tank locomotive. The acquisition was made given the class's high level of reliability making it the third Bachmann 3MT to join the Railway. An early crest variant was procured given the advantageous prices currently available.
Following a complete replacement of the Boiler (i.e. motor) in the UK the locomotive has been airlifted back to Australia where it arrived on 11th December and is now running excellently. It is scheduled to provide motive power for Xmas Specials.
Banbury Connections were extremely pleased with the speed in which Bachmann undertook this repair.

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.
