  1. I fully understand what was written in your original post; a statement and a question asking if anyone else had read or heard anything similar. The thing is the question asked did not seek to confirm if there is any truth to the statement but instead just seeks to confirm if the rumour had spread. The fact is that only one post separates your original post from two that contain useful information about what's happening; one on the 8th June with a link to Kernow Model Rail Centre's blog (which I'll paraphrase) says; "Peco are concentrating on production of existing product ranges, new bullhead products delayed until an unspecified date in the future". This is an informed source probably directly quoting an official statement. The second on 6th July shows an official Peco statement which (paraphrasing again) says; "Concentrating on production of existing product ranges, new bullhead tooling ready and plan to start production in late 2021". The two statements indicate that the new bullhead items will eventually be produced and with that in mind it does make me ask; "Why after spending what is probably significant sum of money on developing the products and creating the tooling, that is apparently ready for production and only a few weeks ago saying that they will be start production soon, would Peco change their minds and throw it all in the bin?" My post sought to question the source of the statements, to give an opinion about the possible source and to state the facts that are known to me, although that might not have been what you were expecting sometimes a question does deserve a little more than a basic answer. I could have simply written "Not heard that but it's codswallop!", but that wouldn't be helpful would it? The truth is that there is no evidence to support the claim that Peco are dropping their planned expansion of the bullhead range, the available evidence indicates that they do intend to produce the promised items and explains why production hasn't yet started.
  2. Dave, Are these "two well known users/followers" aware of the recent statement from Peco? Is it possible to quote their statement(s) on the subject? Was it here on RMWeb or another public forum? I have the feeling that this is nothing more than the opinion* of individuals who have little or no knowledge of the situation with regards to the development and production of further bullhead track items from Peco. Is it the case that this opinion is nothing more that speculation and rumour mongering? Peco's statement indicates that production will begin later this year, maybe we should wait until the end of the year and if there are no further updates only then raise our concerns? * Opinion; - "A view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge."

  4. Not a modification but this video https://youtu.be/V3mEhdlgxsU?t=1119 by @Jenny Emily shows how to remove the chassis from the body and not have the wheels fall out.

  7. I'm not really in the know but I placed an order for custom plates on the 19th January, the email with a preview of the artwork for approval arrived on 11th March, and the etched were sent out on the 6th April.
  8. Although the Brake Thirds and Composites are of the same diagram, 660 retained panelled body work but 662 and 663 had their body work replaced with steel sheet. Picture of set 660 Picture of set 662 Fortunately Worsley Work offer etched sides, floor and end for sets 662/663.
  9. Do you have a YouTube / Google account as you will need to be signed in to leave comments with your username. It's like RMWeb, you need to have an account and need to be signed in to create topics and reply to them.
  10. I think it would be helpful if you could explain what you mean by "anonymous"; does it mean that you are not signed in to YouTube?
  11. It may depend on the brand as I've recently been using some Railmatch and Humbrol emanels that are over 20 years old without any problems, but I did test them on pieces of plastic sprue before committing them to any models.

  13. Strictly speaking that is correct but in practice the meaning of, and the the number it refers to, are 'slightly' elastic. One will be told something will take a couple of seconds/minutes/hours/day/months.... or someone might say they are only going to have a couple of pints, often "a couple" means two or more but less than ten.
  14. I too can recommend Grainge and Hodder, nice laser cut ply parts and very responsive customer service. The current turn round on orders is a month, mine were ordered on 10th November and arrived on 11th December.
