  1. For anyone who is tempted by a Lord Nelson, Rails now have Sir Francis Drake in SR green at £129.50. No connection etc. I'm surprised that they haven't sold out like a lot of Hornby's new offerings of late it's one of the few occasions where I've not bought on release and managed to pick up cheaper later.

  2. I wouldn't want to see a release list like this every year as new models are the lifeblood of the hobby, but I for one am happy to see a year of consolidation. As a Southern modeller we have been fortunate to have been inundated with superb models from many sources, so a gap to catch up with purchases is an opportune chance as far as I am concerned. Nik
  3. These days some expert would probably tell Leonardo Da Vinci he hadn't got the Mona Lisa's smile right. Like that painting LLS is also a masterpiece.
  4. Fair point. Thanks for the swift reply. Nik
  5. I don't know if this is a permanent change or a trial but I personally preferred the separate topics for each magazine as it used to be complete with sub headings. It certainly made it easier to navigate and track topics. Any chance of a change back? Nik
  6. Apparently, if you listen some, it'll all be coming back after Brexit
  7. The policemen are fantastic although a tad early for me but it set me thinking, would it be worth your time taking your scanning equipment to one of the many 1940s themed events at a heritage railway. I'm aware that not all the outfits are correct but some of the people do go to an extreme effort to get things correct. Just a thought. AT Nik
  8. Great photo. This is only speculation but if the yellow paint end faded due to the quite harsh chemicals put into the automatic washing plants of the time, a black surround would give a clearer outline to the disc. Obviously on what looks like an ex works paint job fading isn't yet an issue. Nik
  9. If you think Norwich to London is bad you should try travelling east or west either by road or rail both are horrendous! Nik
  10. Received one from Hattons last week only too find I'd mistakenly ordered the BR version doh. Visited the Bure Valley Railway yesterday and found the SR version for £35 so snapped that up. Now what to do with the BR one? Nik
  11. Basic translation "It lives!" Now for lots of playing trains/in depth testing. Nik
  12. Unless you are purchasing an APT or 92 which are crowd funded ie you have a vested interest, isn't this thread little more than trolling of DJM?
  13. Well this looks interesting, but just one suggestion. Would it be possible to make the returning loop going into the parcels siding go into the two main platform roads, similar to Waverly west on here, so you could get a continuous run. The layout could still look like a terminus by having an overall roof to disguise the circular nature of the layout. I think this would allow to keep a train circling whilst shunting sidings etc. Also sometimes it's nice to watch the trains go by. All the best Nik
  14. Eurgh! Whatever is that tram looking thing at Doncaster? Does it scare small children? Nik
