  1. Thanks for sharing the video here. It's much appreciated.
  2. I have a mate 'on the inside', as it were. The way he put it to me, there seems to be a constant, repetitive disagreement between the Management Team and the Permanent Way department. In that, in blunt terms, the Management throw money at the loco department for repairs and overhauls, while depriving the P-Way department of funds. The P-Way department argues (or maybe it was just my mate), the reason the locos keep needing money thrown at them, is the fact the trackwork is shaking them to bits. But they don't have the money to do anything about it. Regards, Matt
  3. That title goes to this beastie: http://www.furnessrailwaytrust.org.uk/fr20.htm Regards, Matt
  4. U Class: Problem with the U Class is the number of variants within just a 50 strong class. Would love to see it happen though. Rebuilt 'Battle of Britain' Class: Would require a brand new tooling for the tender. The 5250g tender hasn't been seen in model form since the days of Hornby Dublo. P Class: Wasn't there a thread on here not too long ago, detailing the differences between all 8 members of the class?
  5. That's interesting. I have three. One will easily manage 5 around tight curves, the others struggle with 4... Regards, Matt
  6. People don't take the risks seriously, due to it being a 3rd of the size. Failing to see, it is just as dangerous.
  7. D9004 "Queens Own Highlander" had a similar crest, mounted above a single line nameplate.
  8. N15 Class 777 "Sir Lamiel" 'Lord Nelson' Class 850 "Lord Nelson" When Sir Lamiel was down at Swanage, I asked if I could go up into the cab. When in there, I asked the locos representative if it would ever go mainline again, the response was "After it's next overhaul."
  9. Spotted at this years Great Dorset Steam Fair... Regards, Matt

  11. ...or D213 "Andania", given its recent return to service in preservation.

  13. Chances of Hornby doing this... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10208031305515508&set=gm.542465962621150&type=3&theater Regards, Matt
  14. Noted from the computer renderings, Hornby have shrunk the diameter of the bogie wheels on 21C1, to accommodate the fairings in-front of the cylinder. Regards, Matt
