  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
  4. On the Isle of Wight, Newport to Ventnor trains were 6 coaches
  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?

  16. thanks, which number did you call?
  17. Dont seem to be responding to calls or contact form at moment. Ordered 2 items nearly 3 weeks ago, no notice of delivery or sign of items. Main contact number is disconnected and secondary goes to not available.
  18. So signed up to new payment method, sold my first items and over 24 hours later despite saying I have been paid, payments havn't been processed into bank. Couple of things I have noticed, cant find how to do a partial refund for postage,which was easy on paypal. The new selling hub view is awful and you spend loads of time trying to find your listings. I dont think we have saved that much on fees,if anything but there really isnt any other alternative to quickly sell items
  19. To be honest, the real 45106 in this livery never looked right

  24. You would certainly think that Heljan would have addressed this by now. The class 31 thread, had the same issues raised with packing and transit damage, there Ben from Heljan said they had sorted the packing issues out for all future models.
