R2660m NORFOLKMAN Coaches

Postby bonnetmoth » Tue Oct 14, 2014 4:08 pm

Hi all,

Have just had a look in the R2660M Norfolkman pack I Inherited and have seen what looks like brass posts at either end of the coaches, is this normal for Hornby Coaching stock?

Thanks for any info

If the posts are inside the coaches, yes it's perfectly normal. I think (although I've never done it) you have to undo a screw which passes through them to remove the roof.

Looking at pictures on Hatton's site:

http://www.ehattons.com/25256/Hornby_R2 ... etail.aspx

The question I would have is whether the coaches are Hornby's latest Mk 1 (which I have read are quite good) or the earlier generation. The glazing doesn't look too brilliant from what I can see.

They are the old ones as they have the large coupling - I'm pretty sure the new ones have a slimline coupling.

So, Hornby continue their practise of giving us a good loco but second rate coaches. It get's my hackles up.

So. You're moaning that a pack released in 2007 doesn't contain coaches released in 2014.

There's no pleasing some people.

OK, I goofed. There's no indication in the OP or Hatton's link that these are that old.

Normally, Hattons will show older released stock as 'not in stock' and the images refer to preowned stock instore available on ehattons, with a 'preowned' price under the images when they are expanded.
