  1. Some one posted earlier that the deal in WHS only started on the Friday. Similarly in Tesco it started on the Thursday. They also said it was for a limited period. Computerised tills in Tesco and WHS are normally updated centrally, so be polite to staff, it's probably not within their control. From my own experience the offer was not available in Tesco at about 9pm on the Wednesday (January edition of Hornby mag on display), but was available early on Thursday morning with the Febuary mag. Regards Roddy
  2. Sorry about that, the perils of responding to something to quickly. I've also had a look but can only find the normal door release buttons (9075) but not the emergency door releases. I am wondering if I got mixed up and was thinking of someone else's decals at the time. Precision Labels do door release labels (ref L91A) which you might be able to use. I didn't end up using decals as I realised the Hornby Scotrail Mk2fs had then already printed, it was just difficult to see them in that livery. Sorry once again about the confusion. Best wishes Roddy
  3. They are item no. 9076. The 3D versions look a lot better than the usual flat ones. Best wishes Roddy
  4. Thanks for that heads up Signaller, I've never seen that version of the grain wagon before. I do wonder if those wagons were taken over by LGW, as when looking at a train of wagons, one or two are sometimes noticeably not as high as the others, are they perhaps the old Distiller's ones which have been added to the LGW fleet? It would seem odd that LGW would build two different sizes of wagon for their own fleet and the photo you highlight might explain the difference. Thanks once again. Roddy
  5. On the grain wagons, you might be getting these mixed up with the Leith General Warehousing (LGW) or the Robert Hutchison grain wagons. As far as I am aware, Distillers did not have any of these type of grain wagons themselves. Roddy
  6. Thanks to everyone that has replied so far, but if anyone has any information on what drivers would have worn post dieselisation/electrification that would be appreciated. Best wishes Roddy
  7. How about this for a series of articles? There are a number of topics focused around adding train crew to various locomotives but the discussion seems to be based mainly around where can I get suitable steam or diesel train crew. Would it be a good idea for one of the magazines to do a series of articles about what clothes/uniforms would have been worn by train crew and when? During steam days, did everyone just wear filthy overalls, did a BR driver of a class 31 wear a jacket and tie, when did hi-visibility aids become the fashion and are they worn when actually driving, what is the normal dress code of Scotrail, DB, GBRF, DRS etc crew over time? We seem to spend a lot of time focusing on the detail of individual locomotives, but are we prepared to just dump any old figure in the cab? Perhaps one of the magazines could pick up on this idea, or if others on this forum have knowledge of what was worn by whom when, then perhaps they might be willing to share it with others. For instance Big Jim, what do you normally wear when driving, do you wear a tie and jacket, fleece, jumper? If so what colours? I know there are other train crew that are members as well, no offence meant by highlighting Big Jim. I for one would like to know that if I am adding a driver to my GBRF Class 66, what would the driver be wearing. I know nothing of this subject and can't provide any information but perhaps others can? Best wishes to everyone for the new year when it comes. Roddy
  8. Hi I have just received notification from Harburn Hobbies in Edinburgh that are hosting a Peco and Bachmann pre-Christmas promotional event on Friday 8th & Saturday 9th November 2019 (9.30am - 6.00pm both days). Steve Haynes, Peco's Sales Manager, will be available to answer any questions and he will have a working example of the new Peco turntable motor and the new Peco twist lock point motor for inspection. There will also be up to 20% off most Peco, Parkside, Bachmann and Graham Farish products (in shop purchases only). Normally the 20% does not apply to newer models which are still covered by manufacturers’ restrictions on discounts. There will also be a free prize draw to win Harburn Hobbies Gift Vouchers. Regards Roddy

  10. Hi Charlie Could you let us know when all the provincial 156s have been dispatched, so that anyone who has not received theirs can get in touch with you. Thanks Roddy
  11. They've been talking about it for years and nothing has ever come of the various schemes. I'll believe it when I see it (from the top). Roddy
