  1. Have suggested a twin magnet version is considered for OO which would then be a power connector between vehicles.
  2. My GN 4 wheeler has been deGNised, the GNR lettering comes off using the Sharpie marker trick with minimal damage but removing the crests on the doors also takes off a fair amount of the teak finish. Looking at photos of the Bluebells LCDR brake 4 wheeler the doors are generally different to the body work so having tried a Citadel wash on the doors that could be passable at a pinch but hoping WHS will have the requisites to do an oil colour treatment of them.
  3. If they did survive beyond their production use no doubt they were destroyed in the "new management cull" of tooling a few years ago. Pat Hammond in his story of Rovex series is uncertain of the number made but does refer to a quarter of a million from the quantities of a few train sets that records existed of so hopefully a fair number did not end in landfill.
  4. Vertically above works with the reed switching once.
  5. As a Youtube "expert" the horrible thought occurs that he could turn up on TV on Celebrity what ever; probably The Wheel where no doubt he would be the one "expert "the finalist could double their money with.
  6. Received my 4 wheel one from Derails - answer to either of the above seems to be no; the reed swith triggers twice as the vehicle passes under the magnet held above it.
  7. Thanks - yes it seems so looking at this info on LBSC coaches. So a pair of brake vehicles from Hattons instead.
  8. A LBSCR design; the only vehicles which are at all appropriate in that respect in the current offerings are the SR ones,
  9. Matching the body colour being the issue; it would be useful if the appropriate colour codes could be given together with application specifications like what colour is the plastic and undercoat, how many layers of undercoat, how many of the body colour; what varnish and again how many layers
  10. Hopefully Hornby will do something to address the "damaged Rockets"by improving the connection between the loco and tender as the vast majority will be broken wiring.
  11. His reviews are sheer bad practice;take it apart, put it back together and then find it does not work well
  12. The "why have they not produced x and y yet" overlooks the sheer amount of releases that have confirmed in the last four quarters where loco / units have versions of 32xx, 57xx, 8750, 94xx, SECR C, 1P 0-4-4T, D11/1, LMS Co-Co, 20/3, 24/1, 37/7, 40, 45/0, 55, 57/3, 57/6, 66/0, 66/4, 66/7 85, 108, 117, 121, 159 and 414.
  13. Wonder if there is time for Hattons to change the LBSC 4 compartment lavatory Composite to either 250 or 251 and the third class lettering to second as per Nick Hollidays comments in the Brighton Circles Christmas 2020 Modellers Digest www.lbscr.org/Models/Digest/LBSCR-Modellers-Digest-12.pdf. It's a pity the duckets are not separate as that would have allowed different styles to be offered, the flat roof type being provided being wrong for most of these LBSC offering and from a normal viewing distance shape is one of the key issues. Have earmarked a Hornby SR brake 3rd 6 wheeler for on
  14. Seems the 4 compartment lavatory Composite is the most accurate for a LBSC vehicle albeit needs the third class lettering changed to second and the running number as 250 or 251 not 271. Might there be time for Hattons to make the change? It's a pity the duckets are not separate as that would have allowed different styles to be offered, the flat roof type being provided being wrong for most of these LBSC offering and from a normal viewing distance shape is one of the key issues. Have earmarked a Hornby SR brake 3rd 6 wheeler for one end of the vintage train for my layouts preserved mode a
  15. The **** really needs to grow up, not every model will be perfect and to return for replacement faulty ones.
