  1. It seems that it is only Hornby items that get affected so therefore I deduce it is a problem with the way that Hornby interact with their customers. I feel sorry for the person who saves up for that something special and then their hopes get dashed. Having been in the position when I was young of having to save up for a particular item I would have been devastated if my order got cancelled, not good for encouraging people into the hobby.
  2. Just had my order for R60021 with Hattons cancelled, others seem to still be taking preorders though
  3. Sorry to hear this and condolences to those particularly affected. We always particularly liked the Calne show as a family, the right size to take the whole family even those not quite so interested in Model Railways.

I hope the committee can carry on with the shows as a testament to Geoff, I am sure that is what he would have wanted.

Business Performance Group sales for the third quarter were positive and ahead of the same period last year. As a result, cumulative group sales for the financial year to date are ahead of last year.

  8. Why not use the chat function on Hattons and ask if in doubt. They are usually quite good. You can also check the Royal Mail site, they give regular updates on service status.
  9. Hattons must be in RM good books, shipped my trunk last week late in the day to avoid delivery next day, dispatched next day by Hattons and delivered within 24 hrs of despatch.
  10. Not yet, waiting for Hattons to get theirs then I can empty my trunk in one go.
  11. Will be good to get back to some sort of normality, I think we are all having withdrawal symptoms. Looking forward to see layouts live and browsing trader stands again.
  12. Used to be several in Eastbourne (1960s). There was one in the Old Town, which was I recollect second hand mainly, and the Train Times which still exists. Add Gamelys toy store which sold a fair amount of Hornby plus there may have been other toy stores that sold Hornby. In my local town of Hailsham a few miles from Eastbourne the local Toy shop Robertsons also sold Hornby, that was where my first train set was bought !
  13. Can we have a Billington K mogul please
