  1. My 6 arrived this morning. Superb. Many thanks to all involved in producing these.
  2. My February copy arrived this morning approx 10 days late. The address was hand-written on PECO headed paper. All in a cellophane wrapper. Appears that PECO must have had a problem somewhere with labels/distribution etc. My January copy never arrived.
  3. Shark & Mermaid availability is now listed as Jan/Feb on the Bachmann website.
  4. My January copy never arrived. Still waiting for February copy. I did view the January copy online but it's not the same as browsing a physical magazine. Since they reverted to paper wrappers (following the short interlude of the compostable version) most issues have been delivered in a torn/battered state.
  5. Some candidates based on previous models. Updated V2 and/or Crab. Updated Class 25. Loco drive Jubilee/Scot/Black 5. Wishlist - Class 28 and Unrebuilt Patriot.
  6. Excellent suggestion, thank you. Have purchased the last 2 tins of Humbrol 73 from our local Hobbycraft. Will try these out during the forthcoming lockdown.
  7. I am planning to paint some buildings in BR Maroon & Cream. Looking at the Humbrol paint Chart they don't have BR Maroon in the list of Rail Paints although they do have BR Cream (RC424). Can anyone advise if any other Humbrol Paint is a close match? David
  8. More pictures here, notably on pages 2 & 3... https://www.railwayarchive.org.uk/archive-search?query=whetstone And here... http://www.vintagecalculators.com/gcrleicester/html/trip_to_nottingham_-_rugby.html I grew up on the farm many of whose fields disappeared under the M1 between this overbridge and the river Soar. Lots of lorries etc and muddy roads. I spent many hours trainspotting by the Warwick Road Bridge. There are pictures in several books as already noted. David PS. I'm currently constructing an N Gauge layout of Ashby Magna.
  9. Perhaps if Hattons & Bachmann can kiss & make up then Bachmann could offer the Hattons Garratt as part of the EFE range as this range appears to comprise largely of third-party products.
  10. Once arrived I hope that it might generate renewed interest in a potential N Gauge version.
  11. It's also in the Hattons ad in the current issue of Railway Modeller. Fingers crossed.
  12. They are now offering a further opportunity for an N Gauge Model. Expressions of interest here... https://krmodels.co.uk/collections/n-gauge/products/gt3-n-gauge
  13. Now due September, was previously July, according to the Bachmann website. I'll be happy to wait until September given the current problems.
