  2. Hi All s After 35 years the owner of Granary Model shop Swineshead has decided to retire and is having a closing down is closing down sale. A number of items are reduced Looking to close by December latest Opening Times vary, so might be worth calling before travelling
  3. If we are back into flagging Amazon offers, this Hornby A2 Steady Aim is a great price at £140 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hornby-R3834-Thompson-Class-Steady/dp/B08485J163/ref=sr_1_34?_encoding=UTF8&c=ts&dchild=1&keywords=Model+Train+Locomotives&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&qid=1630776089&refinements=p_6%3AA3P5ROKL5A1OLE%2Cp_36%3A146174031&rnid=389075011&s=kids&sr=1-34&ts_id=364181031

  5. But doesn't that contradict what a review is. In any field a review is carried out of the item you have purchased straight out of the box, not of the replacement. If it was of a replacement and we found out after the review that they had swapped it, would we not then loose confidence in the reviewer, especially if we bought it and then found the faults seen with the first one. As I mentioned in an earlier thread these from a distance look fab, its just let down by the issues with the front bow and more importantly the issue that it cant pull prototypical length formations.
  6. I think Sams video hits on the nail, the pulling power is not good,as previous pages have already pointed out in this thread. Must admit I am seriously contemplating sending mine back.
  7. TTCDiecast have these on special offer for £399.95 https://www.ttcdiecast.com/o-gauge-38-c.asp
  8. So my Locos arrived and from a distance they look fab. Its when you get close tge issues show up. So basically both are suffering from the fronts bowing upwards very slightly. If put close together as per photos 31 is not as bad but can see buffers are slightly above 34 back buffers. Other way round and it's worst on 34 front buffers as not only is both buffers above but the left side looking at the boiler door is higher than the right. Photos hopefully show this.
  9. Some good bargains in the updated TMC sale, weathered new locos for less than the cost of new, e.g. EFE Hymek £113 https://www.themodelcentre.com/sale
  10. If thats the case, wouldn't this issue have flagged up on the Kernow original DJ models version?
  11. Not sure but Hobby Shop Faversham have a couple of each at the moment free post £127.45 listed here in Aug arrivals https://hobb-e-mail.com/aug212-1244-c.asp
  12. Ordered the 2 IoW ones from Model railways direct, seem to be selling out in a number of shops Will check them when they arrive and see if they have the same issue.
