  7. Hi all, Thanks to all of you for the extensive feedback provided so far. With the addition of the Plywood modules, I thought it best to 'start again' with the thread to save any confusion on what materials and modules are available. I've amended the original post to contain all the latest info, and a selection of posts prior to the Plywood module launch have been removed. This is solely to save any future confusion, especially for those who are reading the thread from the start. Thanks again for your support and please continue to share your thou

  12. Hi all, We’re pleased to share the engineering samples of our Genesis 4 & 6 wheel coaches. These initial undecorated samples showcase the exquisite levels of detail we're striving for with our new coaches, the different coach type variations as well as some of the more subtle detail differences such as alternative roof furniture and wheel types. As with all engineering samples, there are some changes to be made and they are subject to review. Videos of the samples running as well as detailed photos can be viewed via the following link: Hattons Origin
