  1. Colletts models have new stocks of the Bachmann maroon portholes for £42.95 each, a good £4 cheaper than most of the big box shifters: https://www.collettsmodelshop.co.uk/product-category/model-railways-2/oo-gauge/Bachmann/coaches-Bachmann/lms-60-ft-porthole-coaches/

    • FOR SALE
    • AS NEW - as purchased (unused)

    I have 10 x 1m lengths of OO/HO Tillig Elite flexible track for sale. Code 83 rail pre darkened rails on wooden sleepers. This track has never been used, bought it 2 years ago then Peco brought out their code 75 Bullhead rail! Offered with free postage

    Excellent boxed and unused example of the Hornby Skaledale Barrow Hill Signal Box produced as a limited edition for Model Rail.

    • USED - boxed, complete and unmodified

    This is an excellent unused example of the original Skaledale East goods shed, with maroon doors rather than the green ones on the latest reissue. The box is in fair condition with a couple of years around the flaps.

    Hornby Skaledale workshop. In good used condition, some black card has been stuck over the doors to give the impression they are open; easily removed. Long since removed from the catalogue, but do come up from time to time on eBay.


  6. 17A if you are very attached to your original 4F I have a spare motor and gears to enable you to resurrect the tender drive. Happy to send it to you for a small consideration for P&P? PM me if interested. Stephen
  7. Hornby Sir Francis Drake for £118.99 - that is a bargain!!
  8. In fairness, the order has arrived, they tried to deliver on Friday (8th) but we were out. I called the courier and he returned at the appointed time on Saturday 9th. So all in all, a good experience - thankfully. One small observation - when placing the order it defaulted to the £6.50 premium courier option, I didn't bother trying to change it after the experiences reported here. That said, £6.50 to deliver two small tinlets of paint, two etches and a couple of really small white metal castings (finials) was relatively expensive for a package weighing no more than a few ounces. I would always defer to using Royal Mail (family connection), but if they refuse to transport paint I guess they are not an option so PP resort to the messenger of the gods! Steve
  9. I placed an order at the weekend so will see what happens!
  10. Reverting back to SP products, I am contemplating buying a couple of their more unusual BR MK1 coaches in blue/grey livery. I would like to ask if anyone has any experience runnung these with recent Hornby/Bachmann coaches and how the two livery applications compare? If someone has a picture with the two products side by side, that would be really helpful. Many thanks, Steve
  11. Sorry to be a bore and not sure if this is the place for this ask, but any chance classifieds might make a return on the new platform?
  12. Used Colletts for the first time this week for the Fifteen Guinea Train Pack which he had on offer at a fabulous price. Item duly arrived immaculately packed and with 2 days of ordering on standard delivery terms. Received a courtesy email from Leigh thanking me for my business, nice touch. So pleased I promptly went back and ordered some coaches at prices much cheaper than the big boys. Highly delighted and will certainly be sending more of my business his way. Steve
  13. Plus a new Jubilee, black compound, two tone 47 and maroon portholes. Going to be a good year for BR(M) steam/diesel modellers. Sounds good to me. Also pleased to see so many wagon releases, for my money Bachmann wagons have stood apart from the competition. Steve
  14. Lidl have their cordless minidrill and accessories coming back into stores next Sunday I believe. Drill plus accessories is £16.99, I have one of these and while it is no Dremel, it is good value for money. Steve
  15. Also in Sainsburys today
