  1. I completely agree, if you know it’s coming you can budget for it, also if you announce it early enough you can avoid duplication, I would love a class 90 to modern standards in N gauge but as Farish have again not announced it I am still waiting. Will Revolution pick it up as it would be a sensible follow on to the 92 in my eyes, but there is always that risk of Farish bringing theres out suddenly that can put someone else off attempting to make it, so we are sat here with no 90 and the risk of duplication if someone else starts one
  2. The only reference I ever saw was form Osborn models on another site saying “n gauge won’t be forgotten this time round”, not sure how reliable that source is to be fair. but I do agree it is a let down, this was the one quarter with TINGS coming up you would want to push N gauge, you could grab people’s attention and wallets with a new model that would be on sale there. Sadly for Bachmann my money will probably get put towards whatever Revolution are going to bring out
  3. no it’s all existing toolings with a new coat of paint, In some cases 2nd versions of models. Still amazed there is no MK2F rerun
  4. you mean is the only highlight. Sorry Bachmann but it is a let down here, I don’t normally like to moan about manufacturer’s but I do feel Bachmann are letting Farish drop. I don’t have a single pre-order with Farish but I have plenty with Revolution and a few with Dapol.
  5. wasn’t it just a rumour that Osborn models said this quarter would be good for N gauge? Can’t recall Bachmann actually saying anything to that fact
  6. given that they have announced a brand new tooling for OO class 47 ahead of tomorrow, my feeling is we are in for another disappointing list for N gauge
  7. I was on a similar trip on the NYMR with Hartland back in the late 90's at a Thomas Weekend which stalled on the bank, it managed to restart the train and reach Goathland after setting back slightly to pick up the coahces slowly. It was at Bridge 30 at Thommason Foss, which years later when this bridge was repaired it was discovered the gradiant was avtually 1 in 19 there, so no wonder with a full train and the hill it stalled
  8. This is not confirmed but I did hear about 15 years ago that Network Rail charged £1,000 every time you uncouple or recouple to the train which was another reason to attach a diesel to the back to avoid uncoupling as the diesel can tow back to turn the stock
  9. I was using the electrification as a point that perhaps KWVR does things differently owing to the postiion of its track in relation to the national network. A quick look online shows most BR engiens carrying the flashes after the wires would have gone up - 47279, 41241, 43924 and 80002
  10. I think this is the answer here, if you look at most photos of KWVR engines now - look at Ben B's of 78022 a few posts up and most if not all engines carry BR overhead live wire signs. M ust be linked to the closeness of the main line and its wires
  11. Did other railways pay way over the top for these coaches? Unless they paid a silly amount compared to the value of a mark 1 in the appropriate condition I cannot see a problem, to some railways buying coaches ready to go will be easier than repairing what needs repairing in the short term
  12. Gien he mentions Combe Martin I am guessing he means the West Country on the viaduct. I would be maazed if anyone has that given the time since it was filmed and how brief its on screen
  13. Interesting how kr models said originally "retailers take too much profit" when asked about sellign the N gauge kings to shops, wonder if they changed their policy now
  14. I would say the one hoipe is that after 2 low quarters for models the August announcent will cover Septemebr and October as well and as TINGS is in September surely this is the quarter they would want stuff out there for N gauge. Just think a brand new model on sale at the show that wasnt know about just a matter of months ago
