  1. Well I'm afraid I'll have to ask you to cut me some slack when it comes to not sitting down and reading the instructions that were posted on here, as I have never had any intention of buying the loco due to it not having visited my preferred area of the country
  2. Well the missing spring details were there to be seen on the model that Hornby Magazine showed in their short video. I also query the loco having a compressed air whistle sound, when if you look at pictures of the front of the loco, two diesel type horn trumpets can be seen hiding just behind / below the front buffer beam.

  3. Well it can't be Yeovil Pen Mill, way too many tracks
  4. Had been wondering who was going to step up & do a model of this, well done Rails & Heljan Order placed
  5. From Hattons Facebook site, confirming their price
  6. What colour actually is a newly produced wooden sleeper? Currently the ones sat by my workshop appear to be a very dark black / brown through to a very dark brown. But were sleepers of old when best quality original, 'evil' creosote was used any different in colour? I have certainly seen some, that on a very hot day almost ooze jet black tar. But having said that, a lot of sleepers soon seem to weather to a silver / grey colour. So should most sleepers be made from silver / grey plastic, with the odd one here & there dark brown or black, to represent a bit of spot re-sleepering? Mike C
  7. So just out of interest, what happens if you have a derailment & you're using stone age DC? You turn the power off, but does the loco just plough on until the capacitors drain? Does this equally apply to when trying to bring the loco to a controlled stop or are the capacitors only in circuit / functioning when operating in DCC mode?
  8. Was just wondering (& if it's already been asked / answered in the thread previously, I apologise for not scouring the thread more closely), but does anyone know in what quantities the warwells were originally allocated to the big four? We are always told that the LMS had the biggest fleet of freight wagons, followed by the LNER, GWR & finally SR. So did the LMS get the biggest allocation of warwells? I originally purchased the three initial warwells that Hattons produced, but I'm toying with getting a fourth & hence I wondering which of the three company warwells might be best to get? Cheers, Mike C
  9. This might be of interest to some:
  10. As everyone is querying the logo on the cab side, here's a link to a pic that popped up on Facebook, showing the logo in place
  11. Is it an optical illusion (or it could just be my eyes) but is the chimney of Westminster a fraction taller than on Sherwood?
  12. Now that's interesting, that the roofs of your 10201 & 10202 are different. Now I knew that 10203 was different but always thought that 10201 & 10202 were identical to each other. But looking at Kernow's website, I now see that both 10201 & 10202 are available with the two large exhaust openings (like 10203) where as when the first batch were produced, they had four small circulars exhaust openings. So does this mean that 10201 & 10202 were modified to match 10203? Does anyone know? Surprised if Kernow have modelled them in a later form, that they haven't shouted this from the roof tops as a selling point, rather than just mentioning the additional head boards that you now get. I quite fancy 10201 or 10202 to keep my black 10203 company, but if their roof has accidently been modelled wrong, then 10203 will have to stay single
