Re: RAILS of Sheffield and Hornby

Perhaps it might have something to do with Rails holding back LTD ed models and selling them for inflated prices.....

I can't imagine Hornby being happy about that.

Re: LNER Articulated coach sets

@ Mahoganydog, My understanding of the Cooper Craft problem isn't that he lacks the tooling, but rather a functioning machine in which to use it, and is overly optimistic of getting one. In the meantime we can only hope that if there is any value in the tools he holds there might be a company who w...

Re: LNER Articulated coach sets

I'm sure I found a website before that offered them in kit form, though from memory they were expensive, and having never made a kit before, I'm not sure I'd be able to make them to a satisfactory standard. For my layout I think I'd manage at most 4 coaches, so 2 articulated sets. I'm hoping to hav...

Re: 2020 range EFE J94

Sorry but that motor is junk. Some may get lucky with one that is alright but I had a J94 that only ran half speed one way while sounding like a cement mixer with gravel in it. Sent back, replaced and while this one ran the same speed in both directions it also sounded the same. This was on DC too....

The lifetime warranty is still valid even if it's secondhand.

Personally I'd save up and get one new but ultimately that would be your choice.

Re: 2020 range EFE J94

If this is ex DJM it'd better not have the same b***** awful chassis. As Bachmann are involved they know that split chassis don't work....will they tool it properly?

Re: DC Controller

Gaugemaster first time every time.

Hornby only have a one year warranty so they don't stand by their quality!

Re: New Stephenson Rocket

And now the blue second class open passenger truck to go with the Rocket releases. Don't forget that Rails advertised that same blue coach for £39.99 only to pull out of the project whinging that Hornby's was too cheap and they couldn't compete with it. I smell an attempt at profiteering just like ...

Re: The Purist

Shooting down newbies is not really fair but the other way around is a little more fun. At one exhibition there was a BR steam era layout with an HO "Big Boy" (monstrous great American loco) pulling a long rake of BR wagons and vans. Well, I thought it was funny because you can bet a puris...

Re: First generation railway track...

Minor point but stone "sleepers" could be seen in use well into the last century. I believe there are pictures extant from BR days with some in use!

Re: But what warrants the vast difference in price?

I get the feeling that this is yet another forwarding scam. You buy from them and they order it from a third party at a lesser price.

Those reporting receiving nothing is perhaps due to the item not being available through any supplier at the right price for them to make money from it.
