Re: Bachmann V2

Bachmann had an EP sample of the new V2 on show at Warley according to visitors, so progress - at last... Bachmanns Europe's production runs have reduced to such a point that they get very low priority for each level though to production now, and this is really showing in how long it's taking from ...

Re: Hornby 2020 Speculation Thread - 100 years of Hornby

I'm always looking at railroad range items that I want and that got me thinking, it'd be nice to see the old terrier in the range in a colourful livery or named lbsc livery (I know, highly unlikely), also the old B12 with chuff chuff tender (still trying to get a BR blue one to replace the one I ha...

Re: 48DS first impressions

Have to say I'm super impressed with mine. I run it without the supplied conflat.. It seems to run without any stuttering even over an insulfrog long crossing. I just don't know how it does it to be honest. I do wish Hornby would give you the option of buying without the match truck for a reduced pr...

Re: Kernow D600 Warship

I must say I'm super impressed with the model as a whole, it looks exactly like the prototype and runs great too. However for the price, I do think the added detail is of rather poor quality. Compare the pipework to those that come with the latest Bachmann 40, or Hornby 87 for example. They are more...

Re: Kernow D600 Warship

Still waiting on mine arriving. I noticed that they have correctly modelled the non driven center wheel a smaller diameter that the driven ones. Nice touch I thought.

Re: Hornby 2019 Range Speculation Thread

We've all seen the new Terrier that will eventually hit the shelves but I wonder if Hornby will do a GER brake van to go with it? Confused and wondering what this has to do with a Terrier? Look up the Edge Hill Light Railway! Jim Did the Edge Hill Light Railway actually get as far as running a trai...

Re: Return or not return...this is the question!

It was sold as brand new. No mention of any damage. They have lots of them in stock still, probably due to it being in pre grouping livery. I think in retrospect I will contact Rails on Monday as it looks to me that it might be a return. I think I can see a fine finger mark on its boiler.

Yes it does! One side on the power bogie, and the other side on the trailing bogie. :D Why Lima thought in necessary to fit traction tyres to this I'll never know!

Return or not return...this is the question!

Rails used their vast powers of persuasion on me with their super bargains and sold me 4 locos. One of the locos I bought was a Midland liveried 4F. I've not opened the box , but it looks fine. However I can't say the same about the box. Unlike the other 3 locos I bought it isn't wrapped in tissue p...

Re: Hornsby railroad r4873 coronation Scot coaches

I thought it was a bit funny that Hornby have been blowing their trumpet about the new Coronation loco about how super wonderful it is, yet the only coaches they can be bothered to make to go with it are some rubbish from the dark days of Margate penny pinching. Even with the 2001 release of the Cor...
