  1. Hi All I just want to say a big thank you for the feedback on the Batch 2 liveries both on here and directly to myself. We have taken the suggestions about the Midland Railway livery on board and changed the style of livery applied to our coaches to the "M.R" in the wast panels (instead of "MIDLAND" in the eaves). This better matches what the coaches would have carried as the original livery we applied was mainly for bogie coaches, as pointed out earlier in the thread. The images for all Midland coaches have been updated and can be found HERE but I have included a few b
  2. Hi all, Here's our completed colour layouts for the final Batch 2 livery - the London & South Western Railway. The LSWR had a very distinctive livery with Salmon Pink upper panels and 'Invisible Green' lower sides. It was seen from the 1880s right through until the formation of the Southern Railway in 1923. As with other liveries, there are variations in running numbers as well as a 4-pack with their own numbers too. Check out all the colour layouts and pre-order yours now: Hattons Originals Genesis LSWR coaches. Cheers, Dave
  3. Hi Compound1000, Thanks for your question regarding photos of our Pre-Owned items. We’ve recently adopted a new policy whereby our product experts identify items that have been traded in to us which are in extremely good/mint condition. As these items are defect free, there is no need to include an image of them out of the box. This helps us more rapidly process through these kinds of items and then allows us to allocate additional resources to the more time consuming items which do require further investigation and photography. We still have our
  4. Hi all, While we are awaiting the completed colour samples for Batch 1 which are due at the start of January, we have been busy on the colour layouts for Batch 2. The colour layouts that have been completed have all been uploaded to the relevant products and we can provide a bit more clarity on the liveries that we will be releasing in 2021. Lancashire & Yorkshire - This is the most common ‘Orange/Tan and Brown’ livery that was a standard livery across most L&Y stock. It includes the lining introduced around 1900 so would be perfect for any train from that time
  5. Hi all, Due to lower sales than projected, we have made the difficult decision to suspend the OO gauge Plasser Crane. All development work will be paused and everyone with a pre-order will be notified. We will not cancel any pre-orders at this time but we will not be taking any further orders for these products. Our Genesis project is still continuing at pace and is still due for release in Q2 2021, it is not affected by this review. Dave
  6. Hi all, Due to lower sales than projected, we have made the difficult decision to suspend the N gauge Garratt. All development work will be paused and everyone with a pre-order will be notified. We will not cancel any pre-orders at this time but we will not be taking any further orders for these products. Our Genesis project is still continuing at pace and is still due for release in Q2 2021, it is not affected by this review. Dave

  13. 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
