  1. Good Lord. Why would they waste their time? Andy and Mike repeatedly explain the issues they face in producing and delivering their models in the current environment, both here and on the NG Forum, but from the constant whingeing that goes on it's obvious no-one takes a blind bit of notice. It's shame, because every email (or article) they have to write because no-one is paying attention means the less time they have for planning and producing their excellent models.
  2. Mmmmm.....what else has happened in the last 10 months? Nah, can't think of anything
  3. "Straight out of the box it runs whisper quiet......."
  4. I partly answered this on the previous page To expand.....I believe that over time most of the red diamond locos were converted to blue star, especially those that were repainted blue. A quick search on Flickr brings up D8507 at Millerhill during July 70 in blue livery with blue stars. However at least one of the Beyer Peacock built examples D8600 green SYP - one of the EFE weathered ones - carried the red diamonds and is correctly modelled so, There is also a pic on Flickr of 8599 at Tyne Yard in July 1969 with no mu working symbols at all.
  5. Numerous happy punters on the N gauge forum, with only one person having had haulage issues - on a 1 in 25 grade!
  6. It's been measured by a respected source and the height was the only dimension out. But the 'legends' have been established - poor haulage capacity (most people are having no issues), dimensionally incorrect - and unfortunately these will be repeated ad nauseam on this and other forums from now until eternity.

As for the height issue it has been posted elsewhere that they are 1.3mm too high. I'm guessing most people's n-gauge tracks are out by a bigger margin!
  8. What has any of this to do with the new EFE Rail line of products.......?
  9. Just put 'em in the slammer and have done with it
  10. Imagine the outpouring of outrage if they tried that now
  11. 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.
  12. 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
