Sorry if this has been mentioned already, but is the Rail Road Schools in Malachite or Olive Southern green? With or without smoke deflectors?

It says Southern Green, so I guess that means Olive Southern green, it looks a olive colour anyway. It's with smoke deflectors

TBH the O1 has only had a fairly luke warm welcome over there, just one very vocal gent whos happy as larry about them. Unless they are very competetively priced, I cannot see many been sold. I have no interest in one at all, yet I have at least 1 of every RTR LNER loco available and quite a few kit built ones that are not.

I am looking forward to the O1. For me it is one of the best looking freight engines.

If it is true about the 42xx 2-8-0t
Count me in, however I do need another job to pay for this

My Bachmann Dukedog has also gone on the backburner as well frustrating times ahead
Both would look good on my MPD Layout

Probably because most of the members of that forum are Gresley fans to whom Thompson was an anathema. I for one will be having an O1 as they were more commonly seen on inter-regional freights than the early O4's from the mid-50's on.

I should think Hornby's sales team would be turning somersaults if that purchase intent reflected a typical customer. As I understand it the average customer might just allow him or herself a loco a year and a few vehicles or other bits and pieces.

The first two are ones I'd be quite happy to get hold of,maybe the third & the Tornado/Class 31 are mere possibilities,not definates.There's a few from Bachmann that interest me in the meantime & all but one are currently available.......

That could be a possibilty Kenny, Maybe it is just the main range. I have had that thought before now, but someone on the Hornby Forums metioned no thomas this year, I think they said something along the lines of that they thought Hornby were not discontinuing the Thomas range but just not releasing any this year.
I suppose we will just have to January 3rd to see if it is the full range or not.

Didn't look like there was a huge amount on offer 12 months ago,but then again,are they genuinely thinking of the possibility that Thomas fans young or old might want a year to catch up on stock(?).I doubt Hornby think this way(cynic that I am),but it would be handy for some of us who still need the odd character or two.
