They are about the same, both are decent dealers. A shop can look small but can be very long and have lots of space, don't just go on looks, go into the shop and have a look if you are near.

I got a relative to pop in for an item I wanted. Apparently the shop was full of postal boxes, the staff member had to rummage around for the item (Advertsied on their web site) then had to phone someone up to find out what price to charge :roll:

Edit: Just rembered, also they would not take a debit/credit card apparently

Bachmann have the edge over Hornby now. For the Southern modeller their new box EMU thingys(they all look the same) are superb. Hornby are still stuck in the traction tyre age, even the new Javelin has traction tyres and has a nasty habit of shreding them or making them come off when running, it also has a punny motor, nothing like the beefed up multi motored version used in the record attempt.

They cancelled my order after 8 days of waiting. The website advertises stock that they do not have ie City Of Leicester. He does not check his internet orders regularly and knew nothing of my order despite placing it a week before hand.
