Mike,

A very nice model ... I can forgive it for being G1!

A Saint (probably a "Lady" series with the original right-angled front drop end and level running plate) is in about eleventh place, behind LNWR, GCR and GNR locos to which I am already committed (as joint projects).
Taking into account my additional commitment to producing LNER/GNR/GCR coaching stock (as well as completing my garden line and sorting out Monkton Priors) I may well expire before I get to starting it!

While on the subject of coaches, what are you planning as a train for "Truro"?
My only GWR coaches are six E147 brake compos (the type sold by GRS as a 2-car "B set ).
I would like GWR "Toplight" gangwayed stock and a Dean clerestory or two and have looked at several options, both home produced and by commissioning laser cut or etched brass sides/ends.
As with everything, time is in short supply!

Regards,
John.

Mike,
Have you yet built the tender for "Truro" and , if not, is it your intention to build a Dean 3000 gallon as it appears in the photo in your earlier post?
The reason I ask is that I need a similar tender for a Collett Goods 2251 class and I am going to be cheeky and ask whether (as a commission at an agreed price) you would be willing to make a second?
After recent bad experiences with a "professional" model-maker, I am hesitant to outsource work but your work is clearly to a very high standard.
Won't be offended if you say "no" (time is precious) but thought it would be worth asking.
Regards,
John.
