  1. It'll last longer than that. In terms of unsold stock, at least.
  2. Absolutely heartbroken to hear about last night's events, even moreso on seeing the photos. I feel bad enough when I break a buffer, I can't begin to imagine how the traders and layout owners must feel.
  3. Especially in light of the recent announcement.
  4. Well, I for one am very relieved I didn't go in for the APT, as I'm beginning to wonder if it will ever see the light of day. Also this announcement has helped me make my mind up regarding the Class 92(s) I'm considering buying - Accurascale all the way. There goes the last bit of goodwill DJM had in the hobby...
  5. Excellent news, I'd be very interested in a full IC rake. A modern-spec 91 is long overdue.
  6. The sleepers are delivered at Teesport, and travel to Polmadie behind an FL 66, using some former bogie coal hoppers as brake force runners/barriers.
  7. Remember the halcyon days when we had to wait 12-18 months for Bachmann to release an announced item?
  8. Something for me. Huh, felt weird saying that...
  9. Very welcome news, FOs in Intercity charter livery with white roofs in the future would make me ridiculously happy.
  10. They've made it up the ECML to Scotland, they worked a car train to/from Bathgate for a while. It was a long time before they appeared north of Doncaster as they draw a lot of power and there were concerns they could overload the substations providing power to the OHL until around 2005/06. Appearances have been sporadic under GBRf, but not unheard of: 92044 on a GBRf staff charter at Darlington (92010 was on the rear): https://www.flickr.com/photos/railwayscene/9258747584/in/album-72157632544834695/ 92033 north of Darlington en route to Scotland to start sleeper duties: https://www.flickr.com/photos/railwayscene/16286896654/in/album-72157632544834695/
  11. IIRC most of the BTU tool vans were converted from SKs, so would be longer. These coaches look like straight repaints which very few BTU vehicles were (just the current Super 97100x Super GUVs and a handful of ex-fish vans, from memory).
  12. The only issue I've had with a Bachmann diesel was RfD-liveried 37671, when that batch first came out (about 2003?) - the body didn't sit on the chassis properly, and slipped down over one bogie. Reported to be a widespread issue with that batch. I've had no major issues since.
  13. Doubly so on weathered stock, the bane of my existence!
  14. Yup, Dellner - specifically fitted for coupling to Pendolinos when the 57/3s worked for Virgin. IIRC they can couple up to Electrostars too.
