  1. Many thanks 37114. I have one or order and I am still going ahead with my purchase even if it happens to be a little distorted
  2. Same here. I hope that I don’t have to but if needs must...
  3. Does anyone know if the model of 03107 has the running plate issue?
  4. 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.
  5. Ok many thanks Chris (Geep7). That is helpful to know
  6. 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.
  7. 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 S

    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 dif
  10. 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 t
  11. I think that there is a picture of the early 90’s one on the Tower Homepage
  12. 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.
  13. Much obliged. I have only seen 33008 listed on Hattons website, but I guess others should update soon
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Bare in mind that is when they hope that they dock in Rotterdam and not the UK. Weather permitting etc. I would not be placing any money on when they will arrive in the UK at shops before being sent to customers. It would be nice if they did arrive before but don’t be disappointed if they don’t.

    Although this has been covered many times. 1) Yes he is still trading 2) Recently received a new window etch in 7mm not mentioned on the website plus nameplate etch on 18th October 3) Shawplan is a cottage industry and you are better off emailing Brian 4) If you have tried email then you will have more luck at the shows he visits Even if you get someone else to visit next show with your order request I am in no way affiliated with Shawplan. Just a happy purchaser.
  20. Also was the Blue weathered 33 their attempt at weathering which didn't look too bad? I understood that was to be a general release too?
  21. Not likely to announce a J94 or other steam locomotive at a modern image show unless they were fitted with a diesel or electric engine
  22. Heljan already do the GWR Railcar & AC Railcar.
