No chance of that as I didn't order one! Await your report with interest. I think this is the first NER coach ever to get a RTR OO model, and also the first pregroup coach of any type for the LNER group.

(Since the GNR Stirling single for the NRM by Rapido is also reported as just arrived at the NRM and imminently going out to customers, it looks rather likely that these products came in the same shipment.)

Well it arrived today as expected,nicely packed and in perfect condition,,the rail exclusive package/ box isn't as good as i expected but it is suffice ,,anyway the Dynomometer car itself is superb in every way ,,the level of detail is stunning ,very delicate,,you really do have to watch where you put your fingers ,,it has internal lighting that represents the lighting of the period ,and the on/off switch is a magnetic type ,you switch it on/off with a wand ,supplied ,,,,,it now sits coupled up to the gold plated mallard on the top shelf of the cabinet ,where it will stay ,forever,,,,,,,mjb
