  1. eBay are offering a 20% discount code - PNY2018 - today until 6pm. Maximum discount is £75, but you can use it on multiple purchases from multiple sellers, providing you purchase all in a single transaction (please see eBay t&c's).I hope this is helpful.
  2. In trying to ascertain whether Hornby were correct in their livery I learnt a lot more, which is always good (and one of the great things about this hobby), and so very much appreciate your query. Another, much better photo of "8900" can be found here: https://railway-photography.smugmug.com/LNERSteam/Holden-Locomotives/James-Holden-Tender-engines/Holden-Claud-Hamilton-Class-D1/i-j7k5Kqn/A I think "62614" is a highly likely choice for Hornby and would, I think, be very popular in that livery. I was shown a lovely (if weather-beaten) 0-gauge model of it (or very similar) at the Mode
  3. In reply to the livery query, the link below contains an image of "Claud Hamilton" in 1937. https://chasewaterstuff.wordpress.com/2012/12/27/steam-locomotives-of-a-more-leisurely-era-1900-claud-hamiltons-great-eastern-railway/ Though not the best quality, it shows the loco in much the same state as Hornby's model, complete with shaded numerals and lettering, albeit maybe a little finer. As for my model, I ran it with a train of (anachronistic) Thompson suburban "teaks" for about 2 hours on the Model Railway Club's test track last night. It performed beautifully and I am very please
  4. My tablet does not take fantastic pictures, but here is my newly-arrived apple-green "Claud Hamilton" (and my first post here).
