  1. I believe that this is stored 91108 pictured inside the boundary fence of Wabtech Doncaster yesterday (Monday 3rd February), my picture taken using my iPhone. Notice the missing pantograph, cab nose section and removal of all identifiable numbers. I am led to believe that this is due to be scrapped. Informed by ground shunting staff who was out with one of the Wabtech Class 08’s.
  2. Ok many thanks Chris (Geep7). That is helpful to know
  3. Is there any difference between the sound of a Class 33/0, the Class 33/1 and the Class 33/2? The Legoman sound is advertised as Class 33 Push-Pull which I would assume that it was for the 33/1, whereas the Jamie Goodman and possibly overs are listed as Class 33.
  4. Some more excellent figures. Best wishes with the move. One question about the modern image figures if I may? Please excuse my ignorance but which figure is the Colas & Freightliner figures? I am not 100% sure which they are and require clarification please. I can tell which the EWS & DRS ones are, which are the polo shirted drivers.

    That's fine. It would have been clearer if you said that in the first place, so people don't have to try and work out what the issue may be. I wasn't having a go (sorry if it seemed that way). Just trying to understand the situation and logic which you have kindly explained. As NickL2008 has previously mentioned there has been too many repeat posts with regards "Is Shawplan still trading", or "Why doesn't Shawplan answer the phone or my emails". Almost as bad as all the Wishlist posts. Would it be a good idea if one of the Mods creates a pined post in the Small Suppliers section which remains locked. I don't know if the Forum Software can block any further posts in the future? Then if for example circumstances change for the worst then they can just update the Pined Post/Thread.

    Why is it not possible to ask someone to act on your behalf? There are a certain amount of Model Railway exhibitions each year which Brian (Shawplan) attends. I can't see how hard is it to ask who is going to those exhibitions and email them a shopping list? Even if you don't know anyone to ask, I have a feeling that certain moderators here will attend all the Major Shows Warley, Doncaster BRM, Scotland SCC. So, why not ask them and enquire at the next show and if what you want is not available I sure they could raise an order for you. I just don't see what the difficulty is.
  7. I too wish Dapol well with the Class 66. I will be following with interest despite the Class 66 being just outside my modelling period and I have no desire to purchase any (at present). One thing which I have noticed for anyone planning on modelling a FL example is that afaik no-one produces the correct transfers yet to correctly model a FL locomotive. Now I have looked into this in the past and any transfers currently available are ‘flat’ compared to the original and don’t have that glow in the dark appearance of the prototype. Surely with a model of this scale only the correct transfers can do this model justice?
  8. I think that there is a picture of the early 90’s one on the Tower Homepage
  9. Many thanks 47606odin. I think I will do the same with Rails as this is where I am likely to purchase these from being nearest to me.
  10. Much obliged. I have only seen 33008 listed on Hattons website, but I guess others should update soon
  11. Good news about the Mk2 coaches in O Gauge. Wait.... What? Limited Edition Class 37/4 in DRS & Colas? Wow, I missed that info. on FB! I was thinking of getting a Split Headcode Class 37 in O Gauge, but I think I might get another 37/4.... Excellent.

    Heljan at Warley

    This was also shown at The MIOG Show and was said to be a general release but I cannot find it listed anywhere as a general of Limited Run for a specific retailer.
  13. This is how I got confused as the white stripe in the second picture is showing signs of wear. So, for a pre-1990 I would need to remove the Haymarket Castle I will need to give Flickr another look to see what I can achieve Thanks
  14. I have seen a few pictures of 47706 in faded Scotrail livery carrying either the Haymarket Castle logo on its own, the Eastfield Highland Terrier on its own, or both logos on at the same time minus the Scotrail Wording. Then also with additional NSE Flashes when it was a NSE Loco. Before 47706 was transferred away from Scotland did it every carry both logos on one side and just one on the opposite side but still retaining the Scotrail Wording and before the stripes became faded? I have searched online including going through all the pictures on the Class 47 website but I cannot find a clear enough picture of both logos on one side and either still carrying its name or without the name plates. I am trying to work out if the pictures of the model of 47706 is correct or if I need to fade the stripes or remove/add either the Haymarket or Eastfield Depot logos? TIA
