  1. Thank you for going to the effort of doing this. Have really enjoyed today, especially the shear variety of different things to look at . The interview with Tim Dunn & the layout ‘Penmaenpool’ have been particular highlights for me
  2. The main picture shown on the Hornby Pre-order page here: https://www.Hornby.com/uk-en/l-mr-open-third-class-carriage-era-1.html This is also shown on the 'Engine shed' after the following paragraph 'The arrival of the engineering samples is always a watershed moment in a project, representing the point that a model leaves the ‘drawing board’ and takes on a physical, tactile form and even though the development team were prepared for the moment, the diminutive size of the models still surprised everyone.' This does indicate it is a physical model, not a computer generated image
  3. Found this list of preserved railways and their plans regarding reopening, looking forward to when I can visit somewhere : https://www.railadvent.co.uk/2020/06/coronavirus-the-full-list-of-when-railways-are-reopening-wednesday-24th-june-2020.html
  4. The Great Central Railway is giving a provisional date for its first passenger services as Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July 2020. Details here http://www.gcrailway.co.uk/coronavirus/ Details from the Dartmouth railway (including a picture of the screens they have fitted between the seats) for its opening on 7th July are here https://www.dartmouthrailriver.co.uk/reopening-plans
  5. The closure notice posted by 1E BoY a few posts above states that the Temporary Order 'will take effect at times during the closure period only when works are required' I take that to mean that the road will be closed at times during the 6 month period but only when necessary and with advance warning? Not for the whole 6 months?
  6. Sorry but the first post on this thread, the press release announcing the class 45, contains the statement 'Detailed design work was completed earlier this year and tooling is in progress and first releases planned in the third quarter of 2020' So no feedback was sort before tooling began. I can't think of a Heljan model where a fundamental flaw has been pointed out at the CAD stage and they have bothered to do anything about it? To me, Heljan still seem to have a 'that'll do' attitude to the models they produce, the reason I don't buy them
  7. Not quite the same i know, but West Coast Railways have announced the Jacobite will hopefully commence running again in mid July. It perhaps bodes well for preserved lines being able to running again in the not too distant future https://westcoastrailways.co.uk/jacobite/steam-train-trip
  8. This video shows the current situation. It shows the new access road being made off Water Eaton Road leading to a concrete area at the top. Not sure what that’s going to be for?
  9. And another one ! https://forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=72461
  10. Evidence of another nice holiday (although the zenpholio online album referred to is no longer available) https://forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=80675
  11. This 60 minute program, dating from 1980, is available to view on BBC iplayer
  12. Another shop & website, not often mentioned, is 'Topslots 'n' Trains' in Fleetwood, Lancashire (website www.topslotsntrains.com ) Ordered a Piko G scale coach yesterday morning and it's just turned up. Excellent service by them and DHL
  13. Nice to watch. I aways enjoy seeing trains in the garden getting a good run.
  14. Thanks for saying about the increased quantity. Tried again after clapping and was successful. Wanted to order one for SWIMBO who is a teacher. She started a model train club at her school using one of the Hornby Family packs, she fancied her own loco and this one really appealed
  15. Glad to see the update above, the announcement on World of Railways didn’t look quite right on my phone!
