Re: Old Triang Princess Royal

I would still drop them a message explaining the issue, with any luck it will help them improve so it does not happen again.

Good luck with the fix :)

If the others can’t find them let me know, I think I might have some but can’t rememer without digging about :lol:

Re: Hattons Pre-owned - whats your experience?

Thanks guys, really appreciate the input. I might give Hattons another look, they are more expensive then ebay but if the returns is easier might be worth paying a little more. My main worry is not wanting to get stuck with something thats more hassle then its worth and by the time i get it sorted I...

Hattons Pre-owned - whats your experience?

Hey guys, Thought i would pick your brains a bit, I had a few bad experiences in a row buying second hand locos (not from hattons but from ebay, shows etc) which really put me off - my thought process was to buy less overall but get something new i knew would be OK. I still buy rolling stock etc sec...

Re: Lots to learn!

Your right the set track has different radius curves, the R605's you refer to are first radius with each one getting larger (taking up more room) from there The big issue/warning with this is most locos need a minimum of 2nd radius curves to run, if you go to tight the wheels wedge and the loco deta...

Re: Oxford Rail offer the J27 NER/LNER/BR 0-6-0

Hatton's have announced a price - a reasonable £104 for the basic model, becoming even more tempting! Jim Apparently it’s an estimated price & people who place orders will be updated with the actual price once it’s known with option to cancel order I’m hoping it accurate as it’s much more reaso...

Re: 2019 Catalogue Announcement

With the new SECR C class on its way there has been an influx onto eBay of people trying to cash in on the high going rate :lol:

I say influx, there are 3 or 4, but normally it’s one every few months

I don't think that the DCC equipment is covered by their normal lifetime warranty, but defiantly contact them to see what they say

Re: 2019 Catalogue Announcement

I was debating something similar to be honest, maybe finding another loco that’s similar but cheaper and repainting it in a similar livery - it’s the shade of blue that makes it.

Just have to add it to a very long to do list :lol:

Re: 2019 Catalogue Announcement

It would be very optimistic to hope that the fully lined C class would return on sale at £69 or whatever it was when it regularly fetches £300+ on eBay regardless of pressures from Kader! No but the £150 mark would be fairer price point compared to the other locos on the market. The prices on eBay ...

Re: 2019 Catalogue Announcement

OK, that ideas gone out of the window - Hattons have it listed at £191.21 :shock: I don't know if thats just inflation or if they are cashing in on the livery, knowing it went nuts second hand on eBay last time around so they can get away with it. Fair enough the livery is complex, but Hornby have T...

Re: 2019 Catalogue Announcement

They are redoing the SECR C class in fully lined livery, it will be interesting to see what the RRP is and what effect it has on stupid second hand prices

i am hoping its another running number so i can justify grabbing one on preorder

You forgot the other type: cheap nasty - that refuses to peel off correctly and can’t stick anything down at all :evil: :lol: On a more helpful note, we got some tape to stick down flooring in the bathrooms- I massively over estimated how much we would need :wink: and it’s been super useful for the ...

Re: Decision time - the sale of the century

There seems to be a thing where a brake or composite coach from a rake of coaches from Hornby is for sale at a reduced price, but the corresponding brake or composite coach for that rake is twice the price of the sale item. Alex. Yes that caught me out as well :roll: I’ve had to order a preowned al...
