  1. I was wondering if I was having a mad moment as I couldn't find the coaches either !
  2. Pre orders seem to be there OK, had to add address. Does the payment method for preorders still visible to rails does anyone know ?
  3. Can anyone comment how well the self adhesive brick sheets work, thinking of using them to upgrade some plastic scenery items.
  4. Just had my early crest BR one delivered, it seems to have the mandatory rear buffer loose in the box and cab roof detach as its unpacked ! Looks a nice model though, shame about the Lion but when I discovered a picture on my local line (in younger days) of one then I had to succumb !! Maybe those with errors that stay like that will become collectors items, like faulty stamps are in the future. However mine will look good running with a birdcage set as prototypical, but that will have to wait a little while due to layout updating.
  5. Would be interesting to see more details of the construction method of these
  6. It was restored in 1960 and placed in the Clapham Museum. There are apparently photos of it there in the 1960s, although they are on a pay for them website !
  7. 22 days ago Rails said 10-14 days to dispatch all orders, no sign of mine yet, wonder how they are getting on % wise in dispatching ?
  8. That is why people introduce timed entries to avoid such bottle necks. Interesting our local M&S food only seems to limit entry at opening to avoid bunching near the entrance as the early morning queue enters.
  9. Personnally I like the idea of one way anyway, but it needs the odd escape route to rejoin an earlier circuit as it were. In the larger exhibitions people going against the natural flow tend to cause a few problems anyway in my experience.
  10. Not model railways but years ago was involved in an aircraft modelling contest that was just an aside to a seminar, we did a vote by Seminar attendees and that created some almost toys out of pram also, I suspect with some it doesn't matter what the public want to see which is a shame as that is what will encourage them in the hobby.
  11. and labour to do the painting was a lot cheaper in those days no doubt.
  12. Understandable in the circumstances but a shame nevertheless, but looking forward to future shows, why not a Geoff Endacott trophy ? Maybe voted on by visitors to add some interest ?
