Hopefully they have seen the light with these 0-6-0 engines. If they are well priced I can see them flying out off the shelves as fast as H can make them.

The locodrive Compound at last with a decent tender is on my buy list. They look so much better in black that crimson lake.

I dont know if it's just the Illustration but it appears as though the 2-8-2, Dick of the North, has no slide bars fitted. and the piston rod simply goes in and out of the cylinder at an angle approx 45° to what it should be doing. Tell me it's not true. But, if so, that is pathetic.

Are you looking at the Railroad, or R3207 Pre-production example?

It's a single slidebar design Phil, it is there but almost hidden behind the valve gear.

Yes thanks. I'm Aware that is 'should' have the typical LNER single Slide bar, but it's nowhere in sight on this Illustration. Also, There is no return crank linking the driving wheel coupling/connecting rod axle to the return crank gearbox which drives the cylinder valves. Looks like a bodge Job to me, or are the model builders and designers so young that they dont understand how all that 'stuff' moving around on the wheels works.

Don't think it's designers or model builders more like publicity photoshop artists trying to make it look as though the wheels are spinning. Flipping between photos I think there's a chunk of the crosshead and slidebar still "attached" to the joint between piston rod and connecting rod, which have been rotated along with the wheel detail to try to create movement blur. The Valve gear rod above has dipped at one end to follow the crank (he got that right), but its shadow on the frame is still horizontal.

Not much for the modern image modeller again, apart from new Mk2 Aircons. Wow just what we needed! :roll:

I think its a good year for preservation modellers but the prices are creeping up and up, especially if that design clever rubbish is still used
If it steam and runs on rails i like it.
If its big, red and goes 'NEE-NAW' i like it

that is true and I completely agree that prices should rise like everything else but how is the crosti 9F in the railroad range at £119.99? I thought railroad was supposed to be Hornby budget range

Looks to me as they are too dozy to realise the left hand slide bar has fallen off.

Had to smile at the fact that the A4s that were announced last year under the banner "The Great Gathering" have taken so long to arrive they've now been renamed "The Great Goodbye".

You never know, if they take much longer they may be able to rebrand them for the centenary of Mallard's world record :wink:
