  1. In the late 60s/early 70s, 37s would occasionally reach Hoo Jct - there was a daily (?) Temple Mills (?) to Hoo freight that was usually a Class 31, but occasionally a 37 would turn up, and on a couple of occasions a Class 15 would appear - it ran right past our school.
  2. Yet this forum is littered with tales of positive service and almost overnight delivery from Hattons. I wouldn't buy any lottery tickets if I were you
  3. More comedy gold from the "Not in my armchair" brigade. This thread should give the Hattons 'Genesis' thread a good run for its money
  4. Yup - they should go back to using slide or print film, take the items outside into the daylight, use an external light meter, then send the film of for processing, wait 2-5 days, then scan it and then upload. Much more efficient and less likely chance of error
  5. Quite so. 60 pages in and still the thread that keeps on giving
  6. Sorry I was looking for the Hattons Garratt thread, but I inadvertently stumbled on this one. Do please carry on
  7. 25 pages of Comedy Gold Jerry If you don't like 'em, don't buy 'em. Simples.
  8. Agree - very much a niche model. I got my order in some weeks ago now for 3 x triple packs, but am nervous about it getting across the line. If people cast their minds back a couple of years, at one stage the B class tanks were no certainty.
  9. I don't care how much these cost, just shut up and take my money!
  10. The benchmark would surely be a one year old 68 class release rather than a 10 year old Western?
  11. There were 166 2-10-0s delivered to the TCDD of this particular design. As mentioned above, 22 from VF and 15 from BP, the remainder coming from German and Czech builders. Two more were built by the TCDD's own workshops in 1961. There were only 11 2-8-2s delivered of the above design - all from Henschel in 1937.
  12. The more detail and the more variations, the higher the price, and the greater the mithering. Just sayin'.
  13. So which loco was parked out the back of Hither Green shed circa 1967/1968 ?
