  1. Yes, I enjoyed this review video - interesting variety of scenes, nice views of the loco running on a 'real' model railway, pleasant commentary, not boring, not opinionated. Good first review - more of the same I hope.
  2. ...and there is a film of him here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQ9DrerydpM&ab_channel=BritishPathé
  3. Also without venturing into the DJM part of the forum, isn't it nice to see 'Model Rail' today describing the EFE J94 as a 'commendable offering'. Must have been just the motor then...
  4. Yet another vote for Lendons! Very helpful. They never used to have real time stock updates and I am pretty sure it has not changed, so it is well worth dropping them an email before ordering. I really like their online search facility - it seems to rumble along at its own pace - either they have huge stocks or it is run by clockwork or some such...
  5. Whoops - didn't see the extra 't' (just got back from the opticians...!) Romulans for me - see 'Balance of Terror' in the original series...
  6. A starship is an interstellar spacecraft . Starship filth are the Romulans...
  7. Probably a bit late now, but Hattons have both small and large code 75 y points
  8. Although only recently retired from a career in nursing, and well able to keep up with medical technology, my wife applies the well known technique of 'If in trouble, if in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout' to the iphone that our oldest son bought her for her birthday. I mention this only because the presence of the phone in the house is doing wonders for progress on my little branch line layout... in the shed....
  9. I see sir that you are a fellow connoisseur! I believe only 16 of the original 38 episodes still exist - somewhere.
  10. Details here: http://www.rubovia.org/history.htm The dragon was called Pongo, and the queen would contiually call out 'Pongo, Pong, Pongo' in a sort of posh voice...
  11. Am I the only one who found Twizzle seriously disturbing? And am I the only one who remembers Rubovia... but that was by Gordon Murray of course....
  12. Virtually zero chance of a re-run I reckon - but Hornby must be considering a new model, given the relative success of their new Terrier. For the record, I have two of the DJM version - they both ran well on DC from the very start, and are continuing to do so....
  13. For me Hornby have already dipped the toe into GE/LNER East Anglian branchlines with their super little J15, and I think a Buckjumper or an E4 would continue the theme nicely! Hornby are getting quite good at the smaller engine...
  14. Late version arrived here - all good and no issues. I am particularly pleased with the slow running (DC). I think that constant flickering could get a bit annoying though. I also have the Hornby late version - one of the first to come out. As time has gone on the running has become increasingly erratic. I finally got round to tackling the pickups, and big improvement, though I think they may turn out to be the 'Achilles Heel' for the Hornby one. If I get a third terrier it will probably be the Rails version - but lets see how that goes....
