  1. My main gripe is when people say that the Pendolino uses APT tilt technology when it only appeared on Super Voyagers. Aaaaaaargh! Cheers Colin
  2. Just tried the NR app and Cambridge North is there!
  3. Very clear and easy to understand Bob. Looking forward to upcoming videos. Cheers Colin
  4. That's a shame if that is the case. With the Shark I expressed an interest but they have no idea how many I want so I'm not sure how it could be dropped due to a lack of take up. Cheers Colin
  5. Because a two car doesn't have enough seats and there isn't enough three cars available
  6. The bay platform at Stansted is cleared for four vehicles. A three car would be sufficient on most of the Sunday services to Stansted freeing up units for the busier Local Leicester services
  7. Sunday trains to Stansted are often formed of four cars and whilst a tight fit do go on. As Joseph says extended the platform at Stansted isn't a major job. Additional HST power cars will allow use of coaching stock normally sat idle so short forming wouldn't be required.
  8. I'm in for a couple. As Littlethorpe says above the page indicates that they'll only be produced if enough EOIs are made. This doesn't seem likely if people who want to buy more than one can't communicate that. Cheers Colin
  9. I have both a 24 and a 25 in N gauge with sound. Cheers Colin
  10. I did think about this, without all the information I came to the same conclusion as you. I was hoping that someone who could answer the question might post a reply.
  11. Are these likely to arrive in time for Warley? Cheers Colin
  12. The first one has already arrived, the Fifty Fund are expecting the remainder in a few weeks.
  13. What would be a typical rake for these coaches? I've got some NGS carflats but what about the rest of the train? Cheers Colin
  14. August is looking good. There's a photo of them being tested prior to despatch. Cheers Colin
  15. Four years ago this would have probably saved me changing my DCC system. Lenz and Massoth? I wonder how many years late this will be
  16. As the tooling exists I'm hoping that the Sharks will now actually make an appearance.
  17. Now that RevolutioN have reopened the order book for the N Gauge class 92 I suspect DJM are done!
  18. Thanks for that, I'll ring them and see if I can get them to clarify the descriptions. Cheers Colin
  19. So which one of the Digitrains King George V is suitable for 1970's preserved running? I'm thinking it's the BR green with an early emblem but I thought I'd better check before ordering! Cheers Colin
  20. That looks great Grahame. I don't buy kits anymore because I haven't got the spare time to make them these days.
  21. That's a shame, I was considering renewing my membership for a while there. Cheers Colin
  22. Thanks for posting this Lindi, my wallet is safe until October but will take a battering in November and December too! Having said that I am expected a little 'slippage ' in delivery dates. The recently displayed EPs makes the MK2 coaches look worth the wait. Cheers Colin
  23. Are you looking for something like this? Not very well painted but the print is nice
  24. MX622n have been, or are in the process of being replaced by the MX617n. A six pin MX617n will coast you £20
