  1. The loco is the preserved Irish NCC WT class 2-6-4T No.4, so the location will be somewhere in Ireland.
  2. The Britannias allocated to Oxley for the Summer 1965 timetable were 70045/47 & 53.

  5. The relevant timeline appears to be: 10 October - Hattons list receipt of Bachmann Mark 2F TSOs & RFBs, D3 'Skiddaw' and 37.688 'Kingmoor TMD' DRS livery (appears to be last listed delivery of new stock direct from Bachmann) 22 October - Hattons announce that they are offering Wholesale terms to other retailers for their own commissioned models 30 October - Hattons announce Sale of the Century. Reading through Bachmann's t&c for supply of models, I can find no possible breach by Hattons' Sale of the Century that could not have been remedied quickly by Hattons, resulting in resumed supply of Bachmann models. Given that this apparent dispute appears to require 'discussions', it suggests it may be the offering of Wholesale terms that was the trigger. The offering of Wholesale terms to other retailers (as compared with sharing around own commissioned models between a few retailers) suggests that from Bachmann's point of view, Hattons may have crossed a red line and will now be treated as a competing manufacturer. If so, then that would definitely require 'discussions' for there to be any prospect of resupply of Bachmann models.

    If Mr Kale is the publisher, why is he not stated as such on the mnabooks.com website which takes payment via Paypal ? Stephenwolsten in an earlier post implies that David Wilkinson is the publisher. If correct, then Mr Kale is taking payment for books for which he is not the publisher. There may be nothing wrong in that, as booksellers do it all the time. However, it does suggest that Mr Kale is not the person receiving payments via the mnabooks.com website. Every other legitimate seller in the UK, with their own website taking payment, appears to give details of who is receiving payment, so why does the mnabooks.com website fail to do so ? When I contacted Citizens Advice, I was told that as an absolute minimum, any UK website taking payments should display a contact name and address. So I regrettably have to repeat: Why does the mnabooks.com website not feature a contact name and address (as Citizens Advice state is required), nor state the recipient of any payments made via their website ?

    Stephenwolsten on 26 July stated: "As regards means of redress, a buyer has standard consumer rights from a retailer and Paypal has its own buyer protection scheme. The Paypal scheme applies to 'misdesriptions' or misdelivery, as opposed to the stronger rights you get via Section 75 (credit cards). But Paypal does at least provide some protection for the buyer. This is posted for information. I have no connection with MNA books other than a common wish to see the books succeed. I suspect that they are almost a labour of love!" I also wish to see these books succeed, but the above statement appears to be incorrect - there is no definite PayPal buyer protection in this case, and there still appears to be no way to contact the publisher from information on the website that takes payment (other than via an email address). PayPal protection only applies if it is an 'eligible purchase'. The definition of an 'eligible purchase' EXCLUDES 'the purchase of goods and services prohibited by the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy'. The PayPal Acceptable Use Policy states that 'You may not use the PayPal service for activities that ..... relate to transactions that.... are for the sale of certain items before the seller has control or possession of the item.' This issue is discussed in detail, but from a different angle, on the DJModels 00 APT thread page 42 post 1048 (31 July 2018 - 14.42) onwards. Whilst the 'Latest News' section on the mnabooks.com website has an entry dated 1 August 2018, I still can't find any reference on their website to the name(s) and address of the publisher, nor any contact name, address or phone number. Why not ? Edited to distinguish Stephenwolsten quote from my post

    Who is the actually legal publisher of these proposed books ? I was about to place an order this morning but stopped as I could not find the business details of the publisher of these books. Unfortunately, such details do not appear to be available in the public domain. Please will some-one provide information that I can't find if it is available, but: - I can find no record of 'mnabooks' nor 'Never Again Publishing' existing as a legal business entity in the UK. If neither is a legal entity, then they cannot be the the legal publisher, and presumably the legal publisher must be a person or a partnership of people rather than a business. - I can find no record of any address or telephone number for the publisher on the mnabooks website - From the mnabooks website, I can find no way of contacting the publisher other than by email, should the books never be delivered - whilst it is possible to pay by credit card, the payment goes through Paypal, so the usual credit card protection for payments over £100 would not apply. In summary, if I should pay in advance for these books and they not be delivered for any reason, I appear to have no means of redress or even knowing the name of the person(s) or business entity that had received my money. I write this in the hope that the publisher reads this and provides the above information. I am sure that the publisher would not like to be seen to be operating in the same way as 'scammers', which is what is happening if the above information is not available. P.S. The Facebook page for 'mnabooks' gives some information, including the phone number 07979 802848. A web search of this number shows it in association with the names David Wilkinson and David Wilkinson Associates. The later has an address of 52 Surman Street, Worcester, WR1 1HL. The Facebook page for 'mnabooks', gives an address as Kidderminster Station, but the accompanying map shows a location on Station Road 4km due east of Cleobury Mortimer. A Google search of "David Wilkinson 'Never Again' " produces an entry stating that an update to the mnabooks website was made on 4th April 2018 by David Wilkinson. Is David Wilkinson the legal publisher ?
  9. I have checked my own collection of photos and various books & websites, and they all show 34050 as having a 5,500 gallon tender during the period from being rebuilt in August 1958 and withdrawn in August 1965 (i.e. NOT the Hornby tender - assuming the Rails photo is correct). The dates on the photos are: Undated official photo - likely to have been taken in 1958 immediately after rebuilding; plus 27 Sept 1959 24 Jan & 25 Nov 1961 March, 11 April & 25 August 1962 26 July 1963 16 May 1964 13 June 1965
  10. The Railway Photograph Fair is taking place this coming Saturday. If you wish for confirmation from the 'horse's mouth', please phone the Museum itself on 01562 825316. For some time the Kidderminster Railway Museum has not been keeping their website up to date. Last January's Railway Photograph Fair was also not advertised on their website. The Museum's website appears to have been last updated on 14 March 2018.
  11. The accounts for Golden Age Models Limited (company no. 05292243) for the year ending 31 December 2016 have now appeared on the Companies House website. They state that they were approved and authorised by the director on 28 June 2018. These accounts state that the company incurred a loss of £1,592,663 in 2016 under the 'profit and loss account'. These accounts state that as at 31 December 2016, the company had net liabilities of £1,162,563. The accounts for the year ending 31 December 2017 are due to be presented by 30 September 2018.
  12. LE Models was established following the closure of the Hornby Italian model railway design department (Lima Expert) c3 years ago. At the time there was speculation on the Italian equivalent of RMweb (forum-duegieditrice) as to the terms of the 'redundancy agreement'. Whilst I am not aware of any formal statement from either party, the consensensus of posts on the website forum was that LE Models had acquired the rights to the prototype E646 model. As for the E636, whilst LE Models acquired the right to use the tooling, there was uncertainty as to whether they acquired exclusive rights or shared rights with Hornby.
