    Hi all

    Just thought id ask for some feed back/ideas on a future investment that just got a little closer to being invested.

    I am on the look out, to purchase a shunter. Not to conserned on condition, wouldnt mind a project, if its running, bounus!

    Something 03/04, Sentinal RollsRoyce, etc.

    Private Railway in mind but nothing concrete.

    Something to go with the rest of the toys, that is a good investment, will give us fun and pleasure, and be practical size to fit my lowloader.

    I am looking at 2 possible locos at mo but, they are thin on the ground, little choice.

    Any advice will be much appriciated, and any engines known for sale!

    Post or e-mail me, I dont mind which :)

    Cheers!
