  1. Afternoon, We have been busy working on the CADs for the Beyer Garratt in N and can now show them to you all. The model is not just a smaller version of the OO loco, it has been re-designed from the ground up. We have also listened to feedback from the community and can now confirm the model will feature 2 coreless motors instead of 1. Let us know what you think of the CADs. All versions of the N Gauge Beyer-Garratt are still available to pre-order on THIS page of our website. Cheers, Dave
  2. Nice to meet you today Dave. Here’s the link to Tom Connell’s portfolio site:

    He’s @TomTheDoodler on Twitter.

  3. Morning all, thanks to everyone who came to see us on the stand at Quorn over the weekend, it was great for people to get the chance to see our O Gauge projects in the flesh. With so much variation in the cylinder drain cocks we've tooled up the version that is most easily modified in to other configurations if so desired. Apologies for the confusion here Ade. The brochure did indeed have a typo for the O Gauge projects. The A3s are due to arrive in August 2019, A4s and Teaks will follow on slightly later in the year. We'll be able to provide a more accurate timescale closer to release. I hope this helps. Cheers, Dave
  4. Afternoon all, We have had some of the final samples of the Class A3s delivered and we have tested them extensively both on our own test track and on Pete Waterman’s “Leamington Spa” layout, which you can see in the video below. On the whole they looked and performed beautifully, handling the realistic trains on Pete’s layout with ease. We have found a few small problems which will need rectifying before we can finalise the production and this means there will be a slight delay to the release. The new date for the release of the A3s will be August 2019. The A4s and Teaks will also be slightly delayed and we will provide an update on them in due course. Cheers, Dave
  5. Afternoon all, Whilst we don't have any firm plans to re-run these immediately we will of course keep an eye on remaining stock levels and decide if another run would be viable. We'll be sure to keep you updated if there is any news in this regard. Cheers, Dave
  6. Afternoon all, We've recently put together a livery guide looking at GBRf locomotives. Hopefully this helps to clear up some of the questions you may have regarding various 66s. Click HERE to read the article. I hope this helps. Cheers, Dave
  7. Afternoon all, I can confirm that there will indeed be space for a speaker to be installed if so desired. We're currently awaiting CADs and will be sure to update people on our website and on here as soon as we're able to. I hope this helps. Cheers, Dave
  8. Hi all, We have received three further decorated samples of our forthcoming Class A3, depicting the model in BR green including 60103 "Flying Scotsman" in its current guise. The samples feature a revised shade of BR green and full running board lining. All samples of our Class A3s will be on show at the London Festival of Railway Modelling at Alexandra Palace this weekend. As ever, do let us know what you think! Cheers, Dave H7-A3-005 - 60035 "Windsor Lad" in BR green with early emblem and unstreamlined non-corridor tender - £750 H7-A3-006 - 60077 "The White Knight" in BR green with late crest and unstreamlined non-corridor tender - £750 H7-A3-007 - 60103 "Flying Scotsman" in BR green with late crest and unstreamlined corridor tender - £750
  9. Hi jools1959, all pre-orders were processed last week and have been sent out. I would advise getting in touch with our helpdesk via phone (0151 733 3655) or email ([email protected]) and the team will be more than happy to help you. Cheers, Dave
  10. Evening all, Thanks to everyone so far for getting involved. We're certainly not going to ignore RMWeb as its often an invaluable source of information and knowledge so I'll keep checking back as I usually do anyway. However, for this purpose we decided that the Facebook group system would work best to allow multiple threads of discussion to go on at once without continually spamming the forum and giving Mr York even more to do. In regards to the 66 and EM/P4 compatibility, whilst we don't specify this on our models I do imagine it will be possible to do for anyone who's interested. The only real challenge would be re-installing the rotating axleboxes onto the new wheelsets. I hope this helps. Cheers, Dave
  11. Afternoon all, We’ve had a great response to our new Railway Formations guides and we’d like to invite you to join in the discussion. Which are your favourites and what guides would you like to see the most? You can join our brand new community on Facebook today to play your part in future Railway formations guides and share your thoughts and ideas with both the Hattons team and fellow enthusiasts. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2242216175800967/ We're always keen to hear suggestions and requests for future diagrams and would love to involve the community even more. Cheers, Dave
  12. Hi jools1959, It certainly will do, see the attached colour layout. I hope this helps. Cheers, Dave
  13. Hi all, Our Rail Head Treatment Trains are set to arrive at Hattons shortly and will be released on Thursday 21st March. We’ll be processing all pre-orders on Tuesday 19th and despatching the following day, so please ensure your card details are up to date. If you are still yet to order, we suggest pre-ordering to ensure you get your set as soon as possible. You can do so on THIS page of our website. Cheers, Dave

  15. Hi DRS Crewe on a Mission, 1. Yes this has been noted and the loco will have the nameplates when delivered. 2. The Colas orange has been taken from the original locos and the callouts on the painting diagrams. We are still looking to try and improve the colour to make it appear more realistic. 3. We have some bodyshells (no other parts) in the livery sent to check the prints but they have no detailing or chassis. The 5 livery samples that are missing are still in the factory and will be sent as soon as all of the electrics have been finalised (there are a lot of features to get right on the electrics!) 4. The factory tool room staff are only just returning from Chinese New Year and are still working up to full speed. The printing and painting engineers will send these over as soon as they can. We will release the revised samples as soon as we can but this depends on how the revised samples come back and if we are happy them. This means we cannot give an exact date for the revised samples. Hi Sir TophamHatt, Length over buffers: 28.3cm Length over coupling hooks: ~30.3cm I hope this helps. Cheers, Dave
