Given the reliability of Bachmann 9Fs and the tired motor in our original Hornby tender drive Silver seal 9F (which has been running over 40 years), another Bachmann 9F was obtained when the opportunity arose. Whilst it was delivered in pristine condition with an early crest, it was weathered and changed to late crest before being put into service. A picture of the new locomotive is below.

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.
