  1. For a comprehensive article on UK dialling codes see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_telephone_numbers_in_the_United_Kingdom Rob
  2. Here is the proposal document https://assets.alexandrapalace.com/uploads/2019/11/Proposal-Document.pdf Nothing has been decided yet, the charges are not yet set. Although the propose £6- £8 on top of the ticket price is a bit steep. ( most visitors would probably stay more than a couple of hours). Rob
  3. Spot on, I worked for Hobbycraft some years ago and that was the way things were done. I assume it's the same now. Generally the price will be governed by head office. So any stores that have them will show the same price. You should be able to ring your local store to see if there are any in stock and they will reserve it for you. See https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/storefinder for the nearest store and number. HTH Rob
  4. An email from Rails this morning with various new Bachmann loco's, including the class 158. Most are for pre-orders, but there are a few left for buying now. More stock in January. Rob
  5. Advent email from Rails, today it's a Midland 4F https://railsofsheffield.com/products/27619/Bachmann-31-883-oo-gauge-class-4f-midland-railways-black-0-6-0-steam-locomotive-3848?utm_source=Mailing+List&utm_campaign=695029bcbc-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_12_05_03_16&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_74d01bc2ed-695029bcbc-5752093 Rob
  6. The speaker is 0.5 Watt which would be adequate, for a home layout, I'd think. Although at full power it may distort somewhat. You could add a small outboard amplifier if it wasn't loud enough. Rob
  7. A bit late but posted for completeness. Unfortunately no pic's. 66 122/108 at Billericay 11:28 31/10/2019 Down 66 703/783 at Barking 13:27 21/11/2019 Down Rob
  8. This video, although quite long and from an American viewpoint, does summarise the situation quite well. There being 4 separate issues involved. HTH Rob
  9. Hi, Any update on the 00 ones? The website doesn't show them, it says "OO and N versions to follow…….." . Not not sure how up to date the site is. Thanks, Rob
  10. But on the home page is this http://www.shoeburynessmrc.co.uk/index.html Rob
  11. Excellent summary, thank you. Rob
  12. Went on the bus, actually 2, well 4 for the return trip. Arrived just after 10AM and hardly any queue. The hall next to the pay desk was quite full so made a beeline for the other one. This was less crowded and only became so after about 11AM. Nice mix of layouts and trade. I liked the fact the club had had a competition for the younger modellers with the entries on show to vote for. Rob
  13. Hi Tony, I also sent an email, via your web pages, asking about the stock levels of handsets and the timescale of deliveries. That was at least 3 weeks ago and I've not had a reply either. The recent posts in this thread have answered my query, so no problem. But it may be worth checking that emails are appearing. Like Barnaby I'm impressed with my controller and look forward to the future software V4.0 as and when it appears. Regards, Rob

  15. If that slim one doesn't work, you can unsolder the 8 pin socket and solder the leads of an 8 pin wired socket to the vacant holes and plug your TTS decoded into that. It works, as that's how I did my Bachmann 47. HTH Rob
