  1. It is not illegal to overbook flights in the US. It's done by the airlines because a vast number of people don't show up, so the aircraft would otherwise always fly less than full. On the occasions when the airlines do get caught out, cash is rarely offered as an inducement. Free flights are usually offered. In my experience, which is extensive, there is never any problem finding volunteers to deplane. I've done it myself. Fly a couple of hours later on the next flight and get a free flight to anywhere within the continental US, that's usually a pretty good deal. By the way, nobody is forcibly removed from an aircraft due to overbooking. If nobody leaves, you just sit there until the airline ups the offer until a volunteer emerges. Nothing whatsoever to do with Hornby Rockets but I feel the need to set the record straight.
  2. Come on folks. I've been dealing with Hattons for decades like many of you. They are good people and a good business that achieved #1 in the recent poll through their hard work. They screwed up this time and have unreservedly apologized. Like we are perfect? For goodness sake, just shut up and move on.
  3. Birdcages are pre-grouping !!
  4. I'm very confused by all this. Is the consensus that the new LBSCR color scheme is excellent, would work well with RTR Stroudley painted locomotives, and folks would buy them by pallet load except they won't because the website incorrectly says they are painted umber? Seems an odd thing to get excited about, am I missing something?
  5. Echo that, I'm very pleased with this announcement and the love shown to the pre-groupers.
  6. More military items please - the rail gun is fantastic!
  7. Excellent - could not find anything to critique!!

    My Wellington Brown Birdcages dropped by today and very pleased I am too. I suspect sales will be a tad slow with the rather high price point and drab appearance so maybe I'll get lucky and be able to pick up another rake off the bargain tables later in the year. Anyhoo, well done Bachmann.
  9. Try double quotes around your search term: "class 66"
  10. Excellent work Hattons Dave. Very much appreciated. Thanks. Shame we have to wait so long to see them in the flesh
  11. Excellent on my windows laptop. Very fast, very easy to use and enabled me to narrow down to my area of interest very quickly. A+ One minor detail, I would like to be able to control how many items are shown per page. Including the option of "all".
  12. Thanks to all for providing knowledgeable feedback to Hattons and thanks to Hattons for reacting. I'm very impressed. Such mature behavior should be rewarded!! Plus a thumbs up to Hattons' formation poster. Most attractive in itself plus very useful when coming time to place orders. Looking forward to the batch 2 and batch 3 versions. With LBSCR of course
  13. I've just finished slogging through all 23 pages. It started out a lot better than it ended. Anyhow, even after reading all that, good and bad, my excitement remains undiminished. I think this is a brilliant announcement and made even more brilliant by the thought of full brakes being added. Well done Hattons, I'm off to order a bunch. I do hope these are a great financial success for you.
  14. Just received my gun & Dean set. I agree, they are absolutely stunning. Busily scratching my head to see if I can justify buying another one
