  1. Indeed, more bad news for the smaller brewing community. Marston's claim to produce the same products they've taken over. You only have to taste Lancaster and Ringwood beers to realize this is not the case.
  2. Picked this one up from Waitrose today where it was on offer for £1.50 a bottle. A taste of Sussex with an ABV of 5.7%.
  3. A V tanker in the East Anglia/South Wales set really ??? What next, a Class 66 with some nice coaches from the Rocket set lol.
  4. For those who like myself may wish to add more detail to this loco, Railtec also produce a generic Class 66 transfer sleeve (product no 1035) for the princely sum of £3.90. Sufficient decals to cover 3 locos.
  5. Same goes for their Stingo ale which is 8% +. I usually stock up when I'm visiting North Yorkshire. Also try the oatmeal stout, another star of Sam Smith's beer products.
  6. This was tonight's tipple, another superb Adnams product.
  7. I haven't seen that special Christmas ale for ages. The last one I can recollect from memory was an Abbot dark ale with an abv north of 7%. They now seem to market their Rocking Rudolf ale as a seasonal special which is nothing to write home about. Greene King last year brewed Ruby Abbott for Wetherspoon's, this was for the chains Autumn beer festival. A truly cracking pint which I sincerely hope they reintroduce.
  8. Try the Jack Brand New England IPA, Black shore Stout and Tally Ho Strong. Lagers such as the new Camden on Sea and the Jack Brand Dry Hopped are also ok if you favour this type of beer. All the above are good brews but will never surpass the excellent 6.3 abv Broadside ale. Last night's ale for me was something from Greene King at Bury St Edmunds, the last few bottles being left over from Halloween.
  9. It used to be said "There's good beer and there's bad beer and of course there's always Watneys" lol ....
  10. Hattons have in the past sold stock from Olivia's Trains. This was the case a couple of years back with regards to Hornby. I believe they still have a arrangement as regards sound fitting etc.
  11. Time Left: 10 days and 22 hours

  13. TBH, a much better proposition rather than the first option. I had one from H and it literally fell to bits.
  14. This was supposedly hailed as only being available from Hornby direct with the intention that the profits go direct to the NHS from the company. A good search on-line reveals that this loco is available to order at quite a few UK outlets. This may have accounted for the original 500 announced L/E being sold out very quickly. I suppose it all depends if these outlets are being supplied directly by Hornby or have ordered them online using the link advert. Personally, I think that increasing the run to 3500 units was a very fair and shrewd move on Hornby's part.
  15. I've just bought a 66 tts chip and detailing pack in anticipation. The PD ports DB liveried version also looks good. Who knows, I might just have to buy a full fat Hattons 66 when they sort out the revolving axlebox QC problems.
