  1. https://www.minervamodelrailways.co.uk/news/syphon-g-from-minerva-model-railways/
  2. And HEAs too! https://www.Dapol.co.uk/O-Gauge-HBA-HEA-Update?fbclid=IwAR2Y_kv8b7QuRJML3qY-9ww9Jujw0y4CkCI_tR8K9u2TUZb3VvuCFCOE05Y
  3. This is making it much harder to wait for my blood and custard versions... How are you all finding the corridor connection on curves/through points?
  4. Thanks for these, they really do look excellent.
  5. They look very impressive. Can you take pictures with the lights on? Surprised they're in Lionel boxes, are you sure it's not Lionheart, which is now part of Dapol?
  6. A few updates from over the Christmas period, the biggest one being the V14 version pushed back and an additional later version of the V12 in its place. Test sample photos below Personally I think these look great and seem to be progressing very quickly in typical Minerva fashion.
  7. Fantastic! I can only hope these get the same 7mm treatment as the brilliant HUOs.
  8. Such a good idea. I'm already a user of modular boards, but including legs, shelving, backscenes and controller holders is a brilliant step forward.
  9. Correct, and in fact the original 4500s were brass so the diecast versions we're getting are definitely more affordable.
  10. 8750 and 5700 arriving "any day now"
  11. Lionheart has updated their Facebook page with decorated samples.
  12. On Dapol's live catalogue which they update periodically it's still showing Q1 2020. The catalogue was last updated with the information on the banana vans, so I'd assume they forgot to change the dates for the 8750s. Q2 might be more accurate now that Dapol has reopened, but then again they generally like to show off decorated samples before release and we've seen nothing so far (I'm specifically referring to the lined BR 8750 here which is what I'm waiting for).
  13. Yes, that's exactly the sort of prototypical proof I'm looking for! Thanks
  14. Funnily enough, I found a picture of Broom Junction which pretty much covers everything EDIT Obviously wasn't looking hard enough because I found this one too!
  15. Thank you all for the input, it's very useful. Can I ask, where there any hard and fast rules about priority for branches coming back on to the main? Topography aside would it be more likely a train would cross over the down main and onto the up, or join straight onto the up or am I o overthinking this!
