  1. Something seems a bit off about that site to me... Why would a shop stock so much Hornby (relatively high value compared to their other items) and only list them under "Model Kits"?
  2. Yes! Thank you for reminding me and just ordered one myself!! https://www.modelrailwaysdirect.co.uk/digital-and-analogue-control/Hornby-r8121-tts-sound-decoder-class-66/
  3. Oh, that makes sense! That's from last years announcements
  4. Tempted by rocket, probably won't get. Tempted by Avanti pendolino, probably will get but seems extremely expensive for such an old/undetailed tooling without even an interior! Tempted by APT, probably won't get. Tempted by Network Rail NMT HST, probably won't get. Don't understand why 395 coaches are being made but not a 395 loco pack. Rather disappointed the class 67 TTS decoder hasn't been reintroduced after being discontinued. If the Eurostar 4 pack costs £109.99, and the extra coaches cost £80.99, that means the value of the dummy and motor car must only be £29... hummmmm Amazed at the detailing on the GS62617 "Centenary Year Collectables: Hornby Pen". Biggest must for me, even if a bit pricey at £9.99.
  5. Wow, so sorry, my inability to fully read (facepalm) - just skimmed last bit and saw "coming soon" so asked, so sorry!!!
  6. Website seems to suggest it's open now, anyone been?
  7. Didn't they do the HST last year, just sold out really quickly? https://www.Hornby.com/uk-en/network-rail-mk3-new-measurement-train-conference-coach-975814.html So wish one of the companies would make the electrostar/turbostar range....
  8. Is anyone else having problems with the lifeguards catching on points/ballast causing derailing all the time? (Using code-75 track) Edit: Had another looked, It appears quite a few wheels had come dislodged. Is now running like a dream!!
  9. 4-TC has quite a significant discount for toadies Kernow offer: http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/54988/32-642Z-Bachmann-Class-438-4-TC-Unit-number-8022-BR-Blue---Grey (£199.99)
  10. Haven't Hattons stopped stocking Bachmann though? Kernow's Christmas Countdown has seemed to have yielded some quite good prices, doesn't seem many really got mentioned on here, ones still discounted: http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/58740/R3622-Hornby-J36-Class-Steam-Locomotive-number-65311 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/61898/R3782-Hornby-Terrier-0-6-0T-Steam-Locomotive-number-751-in-SECR http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/58743/R3631-Hornby-H-Class-Steam-Locomotive-number-31265-in-BR-Black http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/60178/NIZA-2103-Revolution-Trains-IZA-CargoWaggon-Twin-Set http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/31966/K2104-DJ-Models-0-4-4T-O2-Steam-Locomotive-number-30225 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/32950/16226-Exclusive-First-Editions-Bristol-MW-LS-Coach http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/55156/1322-Heljan-1366-Steam-Locomotive-number-1370-in-GWR-Green http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/58757/R3600TTS-Hornby-NBR-J36-Class-Steam-Locomotive-0-6-0-number-673 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/53615/GV2012-WSL-Golden-Valley-Hobbies-Janus-0-6-0-Industrial-Diesel http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/64284/32-775NF-Bachmann-Class-37-0-Diesel-Locomotive-number-37-104 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/61937/R3784-Hornby-Class-66-Co-Co-Diesel-Locomotive-number-66-705 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/59837/31-655TL-Bachmann-Class-47-4-Diesel-Locomotive-number-47-625 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/57598/GV2013XS-Golden-Valley-Hobbies-Janus-Industrial-Diesel-Loco http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/59392/31-910-Bachmann-H1-Class-Atlantic-4-4-2-No-39-La-France-LBSCR http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/60652/38-125Y-WSL-Bachmann-35-Ton-RTC-Trib-Train-Van-ZXR-RDB-999900 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/55154/1320-Heljan-1366-Steam-Locomotive-number-1366-in-GWR-Green http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/61891/R3768-Hornby-Terrier-0-6-0T-Steam-Locomotive-number-32636 http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/p/55024/K2201A-DJ-Models-0-6-0-1361-Steam-Locomotive-number-1361-Grey Best one seems to have been a barbie Scotrail RealTrack 156 for £150 but sadly out of stock
  11. I would have imagined the exchange of B'Ham Int -> B'Ham New & B'Ham New -> Wolvs+ would have made loading rather equal. Never seems busy to me, but come for 9 and usually done by 12/1 so maybe that's why? I was referring to this year because the reduction of LNR/WMR services is bound to have an impact on all other services (I think 2 less per hour based on this weekend?). You can claim delay repay if the train was too busy to board, and I'd imagine it would come under that category. I've never seen a non-standing/rammed London Midland/LNR service in the direction of Birmingham when coming back from Warley, so not sure it is an "easy option". XC would be less appropriate than ATW, Virgin, as long as not a Scotland one, might be ok but I'd have thought about equivalent to ATW. I always choose the ATW/TfW service because it's the one which I think will be least crowded, which seems a fair reason!
  12. Is that allowed...? At least there'd be delay repay if more than 15 mins... Usually use the ATW services myself, and with WMR/LNR strikes on, is a bit concerning. My local line is only on 1tph vice 3. Hope it doesn't effect attendance too much.
  13. Does their UK website still exist? Struggling to find it... everything points to Rails of Sheffield?
  14. Think it's just come out! Can't find a link to it but it's in my inbox!!
  15. After googling the word victimised, I disagree, you defiantly did that. It's not really a polite thing to do to anyone, quoting a post with reply in a negative way for structural purposes without commenting on why. If people are to learn - they need to know, and I understand now. So thank you very much for that expansion (and that is serious/non-sarcastic).
