  2. If any one is seeking Hornby Coronation Coaches Tim at Arcadiarail Shaw, Oldham 01706882900 has plenty of stock currently ,2nd delivery received today, Best to telephone, Closed Tuesdays. I have no connection other than being a satisfied customer
  3. I was reading on here about increased pricing etc for the things we need for our hobby, but there are bargains around.........Arcadiarail had 3 Bachmann 0-6-0 BR (late crest) J11s in stock DCC on board, £92, now he only has 2! There are some other bargains listed also.
  4. Quick query re the C Class......... Does the latest release have tender pickups and are there Solder pads available for Sound loudspeaker use? Thanks
  5. To Be quite honest although we have purchased several SLW 24s, we have never seen the need for supercaps, ( should point out that the SLW 24s already have a smaller capacitor fitted as standard (info given to my from SLW in the early days), I have been digital since 1997 long before the concept of using capacitors to overcome power collection problems (and Bus Bars for that matter) I have built several ;layouts from Z thro to G in that time and providing track is kept reasonably clean extremely few power collections have occured Did t
  6. That is very good and welcome news Well done SLW
  7. Yes my returned Green one was rather similar but the cab windows were almost total obscured and its yellow panels were much more messy BUT the buffer heads were totally untouched!!
  8. My contact at the supplying retailer (Big H) seemed fully aware of the situation! They are OK and very efficient, I have dealt with them since the late '60s I used to have many a chat on a wet Liverpool afternoon with Norman Hatton, my job used to take me to Liverpool quite frequently!!
  9. The most recent SLW 24 I bought was FEB 21 fully fitted with sound on board total cost inc shipping was £305, it must be considered though that when the SLW 25s are released the price will most likely be higher, very nice people to deal with though. I cannot answer your query though but there would possibly not much in it!
  10. I have to agree as the purchaser of more SLW 24s than I should have, I have to add that in my opinion SLW 25s will probably be hard to beat or even equal.
  11. I received a WEATHERED GREEN Ref 2531 class 25 today, it is now packed up and awaiting ROYAL MAIL Collection service tomorrow for its return to the supplying retailer ( Not a long journey for it from our North Wales address!!) I was apalled when I opened the box the weathering is the worst factory applied I have ever seen on a RTR Loco, vertical brush marks are apparent on the body sides (vertically) the roof appears to have been randomly daubed with weathering paint and even the cab windows have had the t
  12. Ah yes I remember now £69, at one time we had 11 4-CEPs , but not so many now!
  13. I seem to remember buying 4 CEPs for around £80ish around 12 months after original launch or am I just dreaming
  14. Yes agreed I have made a few claims for faulty , damaged or 'badly described' items ALL accepted, including postage refund for the returns and not all were small amounts of £££££S either!!
  15. Have you tried Ffestiniog Rly shop Porthmadog. Arcadiarail Shaw Oldham Or try a Wanted ad on BRM OR NGRM forum Steve
