Yeah, though I still think the price is a bit too high... I was lucky and nabbed the new Virgin HST with DCC-fitted from Rails when it was Â£99. There's no way I'm going to pay more than Â£110ish for any other HSTs though. If I'm honest, the old Lima mould was ok -- all I really clamoured for was a better mechanism... Are you tempted to get one of the new HSTs?
There are so many models I would be tempted to get. However, it doesn't really fit into the rest of my stock and my layout (single-track, mostly freight only). Maybe one day! I currently have one of the old Hornby HST power cars which I use for special stock movements, my layout is far too small to appreciate the power of a full HST.
