  1. Don’t forget Royal Mail are working with the pandemic, certain areas are still saying allow 14 days before chasing deliveries. Mine were ordered June 2019, they will arrive when they arrive.
  2. I’ve been deliberating for weeks over DRS 37’s or DRS 20’s as I cannot justify or afford multiples of both. Having just spent a lot of time and effort getting a Hatton’s 66 to run reliably with the correct lighting configuration I will now be buying a couple of accurate DRS 37’s. These 20’s could have been definitive models for just a little bit more effort and an acceptable higher cost.
  3. If my memory (of nearly 70 years ago) serves me right I’m sure it was solid sleepers on the steel decking with no gaps plus longitudinal planking out side the rails. Remember factory workers using the bridge as a shortcut over the canal. The attached section of old map shows the line and environs.
  4. You’re right about happy days Phil. Some more here, Shrub Hill road and the canal bridge, please someone invent that time machine and I can relive those memories......
  5. Just received my receipt too. 1668 and 1661 hopefully on the way, 1661 will bring back memories of footplate rides with my Grandfather down to Hill Evans.......
  6. Just been notified by Hattons my order has been picked and packed so looks like more stock has been ‘obtained’ from Olivia’s....
  7. I ordered 2 last weekend, BOC 14 & 19. Had a confirmation from staging.hattons.co.uk but nothing else except I have just checked my credit card and payment was taken on Monday. Checked my order on Hatton’s website and it says ‘completed’. I wonder if they are trying to get more or more likely their system fell over and is screwed up. Will leave it for a couple more days before I contact them.
  8. Brilliant! I too can’t imagine this “expressions of interest” phase lasting that long!
  9. Looks like 2020 models will be produced with £80,000 being donated to the NHS. It is so good to see this happen and that Hornby and all those on rmweb who have been so positive have really driven the NHS donation up from the original £20,000. Wherever you look individuals and businesses are are doing their utmost to lift our spirits and support all those at the forefront of trying to deal with this awful situation. Well done Hornby.
  10. Hornby could have have the best seller of the decade maybe the century so why not let the orders run and then just make them so we can all have one - not just those who want a limited edition to sell at a massive profit. Danger is of course that another brand(s) could also step in with their own version (correct body etc) and then people jump ship and cancel their Hornby order.........
  11. Check for an email confirming order, mine popped up 10 secs before the We Will Be back screen appeared - fingers crossed.......
  12. Brilliant! At last I can use my Model Rail DRS MK2a escort coaches - KUA set duly ordered this afternoon
  13. Just spotted this ...... https://railsofsheffield.com/products/39422/Heljan-3457-oo-gauge-class-33-0-drs-minimodal-locomotive-twin-pack

    Oxford N7

    My N7 has also had it’s couplings modified to get a closer distance between buffers. I used the Bachman ‘short’ coupling as a basis for the mod.
