  1. I need to look at creating an area within Gold for the extras beyond the DVD. There's a couple of daft reasons for that process not being as easy as it sounds. I'll try and get my head around it next week.
  2. I can see a post from 2 hours ago as the last https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/147403-priory-road-north-east-essex-in-br-days/&do=findComment&comment=3847806 and you're right, it's not reflected in the subforum. I need to investigate when I'm back on the PC next week.
  3. You can't help some folk. Anyway you were around these parts at the time this topic was started so there's some contributory elements at play so sympathy is limited.
  4. It's a fair point which I'll consider, maybe we need an Obituary subforum in Suppliers.
  5. Aww, you went and gave him the useful and meaningful answer he sought. Spoilsport.
  6. How can anyone give a meaningful answer without any specific references? There could be a multitude of reasons; are we just supposed to guess and you tell us when we give an answer that you assume to be correct? Why don't you just ask the seller and save us guessing?
  7. They're a doddle compared to the Dapol Western. Stick a fine needle through the eye before cutting and use it to place them.
  8. You've not helped yourself really by waiting 6 months. Also by calling him a crook in public when there's no criminal conviction leaves you open for him to come after you for libel.
  9. Well done Roger! If you look at the full results https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/151832-british-railway-modelling-awards-2019-the-results/ you'll see it was a very close run thing!
  10. KMS Railtech are delighted to announce that we are working on producing a new line of Modern Image O Gauge models!
  11. TMC announce exclusive version of new HELJAN Derby/Sulzer ‘Peak’ TMC has commissioned Heljan to produce an exclusive OO gauge model of the first 5 production Class 45 'Peak’ locomotives, D11 - D15, which had detail differences to the remainder of the class. The models are being produced alongside the first production run by Heljan and are expected be available towards the end of 2020 at same RRP as the general release models. These five locos featured a different nose end arrangement with centre nose end doors and split headcode boxes on either side. The arrangement lasted from 1960 until the late-1960s when the ends were gradually rebuilt at Derby Works. The quintet also had longer cab door handrails, in common with the ten Pilot Scheme Class 44s (D1-D10). On delivery they were initially allocated to Derby but most were soon transferred to Leeds Holbeck, Leeds Neville Hill or Sheffield Darnall before returning to Derby. They spent a few years at Derby and in the Nottingham District before returning to Holbeck. They could be seen on express workings from London St Pancras and on cross-country services from Newcastle to Bristol, as well as on goods and parcels workings - a true mixed traffic design. Delivered in BR Green with a white lower bodyside stripe, they soon gained small yellow warning panels. At least one received an 'economy green' repaint with small yellow panel and at least one survived long enough in its as-built condition to receive BR Rail Blue with full yellow ends. As the 1960s drew to a close their front ends were rebuilt to remove the gangway doors and replace the split headcode boxes with a centrally placed headcode panel. Standard features will include authentic LED lighting with separately switched cab light, tail light and headcode functions (DCC only), a 21-pin DCC decoder interface, provision for DCC sound, a pack of optional detailing parts and fine detailing throughout. TMC’s Exclusive Models will cover the entire history of this distinctive Class 45 design: Cat no 45090 - D13 BR Green with side stripe Cat no 45091 - D11 BR Green with side stripe and small yellow warning panels Cat no 45092 - D12 in 'Economy Green' with small yellow warning panels Cat no 45093 - D15 BR Blue with full yellow ends TMC will be providing a full range of weathering options for these models as well as DCC and DCC sound options. www.themodelcentre.com/class-45

  13. Congratulations to all the winners across the categories! So many have got positives to pull from it but congratulations to Hornby for pulling off a haul of the big categories. And the award that gives me an immense amount of pleasure along with everyone else in the team: Well done Jamie!
  14. Accurascale Shines Light on Special Scottish Syphons Accurascale today announces four new Class 37s, this time with the distinctive Scottish ‘car’ style headlight, as part of its first production run of the much-loved Type 3 locomotives in OO/4mm gauge. These distinctive models were launched at the 2020 Model Rail Scotland show at the SECC, Glasgow and once again offer a variation of the Class 37s yet to be produced in ready-to-run format. Before the square high-intensity headlight became ubiquitous, Eastfield and Inverness depots began installing what was basically a car headlamp on a bracket to their steam heat 37s to improve visibility at ungated/farm crossings when working to Fort William/Mallaig/Oban and the West Highland and Far North lines. Over 30 splitbox machines were so equipped from 1984, with 11 centre headcode examples also gaining the safety feature. On the arrival of the Class 37/4s many of the Scottish 37/0s were drafted into the refurbishment programme then underway at Crewe Works, while those that survived were redeployed on freight services north and south of the border. They retained their headlamps into the early 1990s before swapping them for the square style headlight. The Accurascale Class 37/0 with 'car style' headlight continues the impressive attention to detail set by previous versions of this classic locomotive revealed in November and December last year. With two distinct roof rivet patterns and several body sill variations, each locomotive features a unique and authentic body configuration. Even more exciting are the four new liveries, BR blue with white sill stripe, large logo, Railfreight Distribution and Railfreight Metals, which we hope will satisfy some of the clamouring for 1980-90s paint schemes that we've received over the last few months. As with Accurascale’s previously announced Class 37s, the specification for this model is industry leading, with a wealth of separately applied detail and meticulously researched variations. This era of Class 37 allows us to offer something new to modellers of 1980s BR Blue, Large Logo and early sectorisation modellers, so they enjoy the new generation of Syphons in 4mm. The car headlight will also be fully operational. All four models will be offered in DC/DCC Ready and DCC Sound Fitted formats, with a twin speaker set up with ESU Loksound 5 sound chip fitted to all sound models. Prices are £169.99 for DC/DCC Ready models and £259.99 for sound fitted models. A £30 deposit secures an order with Accurascale direct, or you can order with their network of Accurascale Approved stockists. Delivery is due in Late 2020. Orders can be placed here: https://accurascale.co.uk/collections/class-37 Class 37 Specification Common Features: Highly detailed OO scale model, 1:76.2 Heavy die-cast metal chassis Provided DCC ready [21Pin MTX Socket] or Factory DCC Sound Fitted [ESU LokSound 5] Accurate tumbleholme, nose, cab roof and cantrail curves taken from 3D scan Multiple body and nose slides to accurately represent almost every member of the class, including three variations of cantrail grille: early EE (for D6700-D6704), later EE and RSH Four roof styles: Original double riveted, single riveted, welded and welded with antennas Separately applied etched metal and high fidelity plastic detail parts, including grab handles, aerials, steps, wipers, nameplates, crests and more.
