  1. I send packages Airmail to family in Canada every so often using the Royal Mail “Tracked And Signed” service. All goes well until they arrive at Langley for forwarding to Canada Post then they disappear for days before suddenly turning up at the destination. An item I posted at the beginning of April took 6 weeks recently.
  2. ITV Anglia interviewed Andrew the other day where he named the Insurance Company involved. This is just another example of being “ripped off”, the railway has paid all the premiums so they should have been paid out. I have bought numerous items from the model shop over the years, in fact my wallet cries when I visit the place! lovely people, they don’t deserve this treatment.
  3. Sent a package to Vancouver Island at beginning of April and it has still not arrived.
  4. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway have also started an appeal for funds due to the shutdown, suggesting that they could lose £1m in this period. Worrying times for the railway but it shows how fragile finances must be at all our heritage lines.
  5. North Yorkshire Moors Railway has announced it is closed until further notice and cancelled five events.
  6. In the absence of any new videos which is a shame after all that was uploaded at the start of the replacement, on the NYMR engineering blog on their homepage there are some new photos.
  7. Plenty to look forward to there

    The January 2020 issue of Hornby Magazine shows how to fit sound to these models if you are interested.
  9. As the signal box is not in use, this is surely not a concern
  10. For a start, two weeks ago would be the middle of December, not the Christmas holidays! Secondly, trying to have any communication with Locomotion Models is a sick joke and has been most of this year as many on this forum have found to their cost, including me. Frankly, I don’t know how they are still in business, they certainly don’t seem to be concerned at taking orders over the telephone. Their telephone answering machine asks you to leave a message, saying they aim to respond within 5 working days, it’s 2018 for heaven’s sake, not the dim, dark ages. Certainly until they improve on communications I shall not order from them again.
  11. I also thought the show was really good, although it would have been nice to have had a major trader for bits and pieces such as Squires in attendance. The Bournemouth layout was superb and every time I looked there were huge crowds at the barrier. With the space in the isles being so wide there was never any problem of being squashed. The only thing SWMBO said to me was that with all the space in the main hall there could have been more seating for those that wanted to rest their feet. Some years ago there were bench seats for people to do this, so perhaps that could be looked at. Anyway, roll on next year!
  12. I would have thought that your model was not fit for purpose and as such should have been replaced by another immediately. It is not as if you have had the thing very long. As I have posted earlier, Locomotion Models have been an absolute shambles in delivering this particular model and until their communication system is greatly improved I am reluctant to order anything else from them.

  13. Both variants should still be available I believe. Good luck in trying to contact Locomotion to order one though.
