    The Engine Shed

    Having announced in the last edition that the next would be on September 18, you might think Hornby would have the wit and/or courtesy to explain its non-appearance. Sadly, PR skills and the model railway industry are not - with a few notable exceptions - a match made in heaven.

    Hornby Clan

    Does the Clan body fit onto the Britannia chassis without any problem?
  3. Sorry if I’ve missed it, but has a plain green 37/0 been announced?
  4. Can anyone tell me how long a pilchard is? The wagon, I mean. I imagine the fish come in different lengths.
  5. Another 66? I thought Hornby had cornered the market in underwhelming announcements with theirs of yet another Terrier.
  6. Was there any standard policy in the 1950s when it came to which coaches were used for day trips to the seaside. Like, for example, a day out from Bedford to Southend. All thirds and brake thirds perhaps, or did they make allowances for the odd toff family? Or was it just whatever stock was at hand?

    Oxford N7

    I was under the impression they’d already released a DCC sound version of the grey GE loco. If so, why the problem now?
  8. Page 34 may be wrong, but it’s a damn fine picture anyway. What layout is it from?

    Thanks for that, NXEA. Kind of makes my point though. Why can’t Oxford keep us informed about developments as a matter of course?

    Likewise the BR sound version. Oxford’s willingness to keep its customers in the loop is non-existent.
  11. Bachmann produced right-hand drive 4Fs with both Deeley and Fowler tenders. It may well be a dumb question, but does the Fowler tender version also need a tender swap?
  12. Yes, the pigeon van is/was one of the best plastic rolling stock kits on the market. A joy to put together.
  13. I understand the J69 body - which looks great - is designed for the older Terrier chassis. Was that ever released with a DCC socket?
