Membership of the TCS has advantages!
As well as the brilliant quarterly magazine, "The Collector", membership gives you access to the TCS community.
As I am sure most of you know, it is common for engines and tenders to get separated. This can be really frustrating, as it can take years to find a match.
This excellent example of a Bing Table Top OO gauge engine was purchased without a tender from a fellow member. The matching tender was sourced recently from another member who just happened to have one spare.
Now it is back to it's original state, and performs really well on the layout.
