    UTA UG Class 0-6-0 No. 49 (Ex GN No. 149) at Omagh 1963. The ‘Up Platform’ on the right was the longest 
on the whole GNR system so carriages were parked in a siding as the curve of the platform was too sharp 
to allow safe boarding.

    So I managed to repair the drawbar of my OO Works UG, following advice from Roderick. She runs very well - was able to bring her to Colm Flanagan's layout this morning and Colm put her through her paces and she impressed his expert eye although the 'straw' lining was apparent to him immediately!

    Yes, pity about the lining but looks a superb model otherwise. Glad its injuries are better!

    I have not yet received my model from him, so I am unable to comment,on the colours of the Locomotive and his interpretation of straw!

    Having received my OO Works model of the Great Northern Railway of Ireland - (UG) in UTA Livery, I have to say the lining on my locomotive is more of a cream colour with a very slight tint of yellow in it. I looked at the colour in good natural light and against a white background. When viewed in artificial light the colour changes to a slightly deeper shade of straw yellow.

    I suppose the final arbiter is what's on the RPSIs "Jeep" No. 4, which is correct.

    Technically, "straw" is a very pale yellow brown; beige even. Cream or whitish cream is way too light.

    As for you guys who didn't order, as Stevie says, they're sold out -

    BUT, I know from talking to Roderick himself the other day, he would do another batch if he gets about ten orders, so hopefully when you steam men get reports on the loco you'll get your name down.

    The UG was arguably a more useful loco than the U itself - just about capable of mile a minute on a passenger, but good for a decent length goods train - I've just brought a few dozen of my wagons out of store to see how many it can move!!!

    Reports next week, but by the sound of it, the first photos will be from Patrick!
    PM sent, Leslie. I would definitely be interested in one. Can't believe I missed it! I suppose my appreciation of the GNR has also grown over the last few years hence the new interest in the UG

    See you guys at the Bangor Show.

    Just about to drive up from Dublin after a fruitful day in The Archives and eyeing up my next project which was in the yard at Heuston!

    I obviously didn't make myself clear. I WILL have mine on display.

    If someone has a convenient DC 00 layout, we can give it a run.
