Re: Poor quality control

It's pretty much accepted that there is little QC on just about everything (not just model trains) these days - it's often cheaper to simply replace the few defective ones that slip through rather than the cost of a massive QC 100% operation. And, of course, such physical damage (as pictured) could ...

Re: New Standard in N Gauge

I'm not so sure it represents a new standard, many of today's models include a plethora of added fine details and many British locos don't have quite so many warty bits hanging off them, although the motion on the wheels does look commendably fine. I particularly like the slim connecting rods and th...

Re: Revolution Trains propose Class 320 & 321 EMU in N

Is there anyway to check what items one has registered for? I'm sure I expressed interest for a NSE class 321 but can't remember how many and would like to confirm what I entered.

Cheers.

Re: Peco Collett
