A blog about making model trains, little boats and both real and model automobiles. Typed by someone with painty hands, oil under his fingernails and the smell of solder in his nostrils.
Beatties vanished about twenty years ago- I still miss their shops.
I seem to recall Beatties also doing some badge-engineered controllers.I think they might actually have been Gaugemaster, behind the labels.
A controller is on my wish-list. There were at least 2 versions too.
Congratulations on finishing the set. The question now is, do you have them on display or wrap them up with the beatties bag and hide them away somewhere safe?
At the moment, they live in a Beatties bag with the rest of the collection. I have more than 1 GF van though and have a fancy that some finer wheels and a bit of weathering, it could appear on the layout. Long term, I'd love a train of each to run properly.
