  1. Indeed - Whilst quite a lovely product for its time, I have a mint, run in only Wrenn "Sir Keith Park - Golden Arrow", it's past its prime when compared to the latest Hornby offerings and is still in its box!
  2. Is this for a 12" to the ft variety?!?!?! I consider my pair of 4-CEPs a steal now
  3. Just posting this as requested by Jim, haven't seen another post of the details, moderators please move/delete if there is a better/more appropriate place; "Road Accident over weekend . Elspeth and I had to drive to Aviemore last weekend, planning to be back in Ayr by Monday night, so that we could get the last of the orders sent out before the end of this week. On Monday, in deep snow and almost zero visibility, we were sitting at traffic lights in Newtonmore, almost 200 miles from home, when an out of control car 'tailgated us at speed, seiously damaging my c
  4. Those cabinets look great and what I feel is an amazing price too - can't find any way to source them or anything similar over here Plenty of shot glass and gun cabinets
  5. Hmmm, where have I heard those before??
  6. Read the Fantastic Manual (your mileage spelling may differ)
  7. I've a couple of the steam ones, and have been very happy with them. They're somewhat generic and you have to choose between several different chuffs/whistles, and depending on the class loco you're installing in they might not be "perfect", however, for me they added exactly what I wanted at a decent price. I'm sure they're still available, at least in the US the two places I regularly buy stuff from still show them in stock. Can't recall where I got the first one, was a UK dealer at a show in November two years ago, they'd just come out and he was demonstrating them and sell
  8. Richard, First problem - though likely I know the answer already - it doesn't work with IE11. Works fine with Chrome and looks nice, seems to be VERY snappy and responsive when you start filtering and I like the overall layout. Possibly the filters section could be a little smaller (font) to allow more visible at one time - caveat, I AM on a laptop right now, but I'm sure many folks will be on smaller than my usual 27" monitor Before I get a barrage of "why use that carp IE", my work requires me to use IE as the systems I install/develop for still have that as t
  9. I was very happy using XTrakCAD, producing the below layout. I'm sure there are merits to all, but the price (free) was also a draw at the time.
  10. How long have you got.... Coat, hat, etc., etc....
  11. Is that otherwise known as the PM? coat, hat... ta ta.
  12. Have you tried the Scalescenes Engine shed, it's "scaleable", made my 4 road from the kit.
  13. A good example of "why pre-order" is the debacle surrounding the Hornby "Exeter" release two years back now. Even some folks who pre-ordered found themselves NOT getting the loco. Hornby relented after that mess and created a second run to placate the populace. Answer generally is, if you really want a specific item, best to pre-order as that's the BEST chance to get it, though no guarantee <sigh>
