Christmas acquisition (present)

My present to myself was an Charles Collett designed 0-6-2T for the GWR. This model is by Trix Twin and is a 3 rail version modified to run on HD track. It is in BR(W) green. Its a nice little model, reasonably well detailed which looks strange with the boiler being a long way forward of the driving wheels. I looked up the prototype and this is a true representation. For more information on the prototype try Great Western Archive which does have a picture of one
It runs reasonably well and has good pulling power, but does have some trouble over some of the points.
The first Trix Twin on the Layout. So now I have HD, Wrenn, Lilliput Trix, Dapol and Gaiety an interesting variety.
