  1. Hi everyone, I'm pleased to let you know that the LNER Teak liveried variants of our Gresley coaches have now arrived into stock. These are all priced at £179 each and are not subject to the grading system (as per our BR liveried models). You can view the full range, HERE Regards, Dave
  2. Thanks for the thorough feedback. We certainly will be taking this into account and updating the liveries accordingly. We will showcase updated colour layouts for them and seek further feedback before proceeding.
  3. Hi all, Following on from our recent decorated samples update - I'm pleased to share that we now have photos of the samples for the vast majority of our first batch of coaches. Expected Q3 2021. Find out more, HERE
  4. Hi all, We're pleased to show our next lot of painted samples - covering LBSCR mahogany, SECR red and SR olive green liveries. We're very pleased with how these samples are looking and we should have even more to share with you soon. All Batch 1 models are expected by Q3 2021. Find out more HERE
  5. Hi all, We are pleased to share images of the decorated samples for our GWR chocolate and cream liveried coaches. The images here also showcase the lighting system which will be available with our Genesis coaches. We have updated our current delivery estimate to Q3 2021. We are working hard to get our coaches in to stock sooner than this and we’ll keep you updated as soon as we have more accurate dates. Find out more HERE
  6. Hi Chris & GreenGiraffe Thanks for the feedback about the locos. Chris - Sorry to hear that the loco quartering was out but good to know you managed to fix it and it now works well. GreenGiraffe - This is one of the compromises with the materials that I don't think anyone has quite mastered yet. Too soft and it moves out of the way and sticks there but can be re-shaped over and over, too hard and it stays in contact but as it is moved by the wheels it becomes brittle and eventually shears off. I like to think we are almost there with the P and AB materi
  7. Hi Jack Good to see you've got the RHTT out again, even if it is a bit late for the leaves! If you are removing the weathering with an IPA based solvent, please be very careful as the underlying printing and paint can be taken off with this as well. If you are very careful and use it sparingly then it can take the weathering off but it's not something we would recommend. I saw your layout on a Facebook group over the weekend, the Conwy Castle gateway is looking great, instantly recognisable. As this is one of my favourite lines, I will be following it closel
  8. Hi JST Good to hear everything worked out in the end and thanks for the explination about the DDP, for anyone living in the EU, this is the info about DDP and DAP: I hope this helps Cheers Dave
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Hi all, We've had lots of questions regarding the Precision Baseboards since their announcement, and we'll be broadcasting two additional livestreams next week: Monday 19th 09:30 BST - Live Q&A and FAQ Friday 23rd 14:30 BST - Live SkillsCast session showing the (very small!) range of skills you'll need to put the boards together. Check them both out via the link below: Hattons Livestream Schedule Cheers, Dave
