  1. Heads up for anyone who has had there Pre order of Evening Star cancelled. Hornby now have a few extra and are available now to order on there site.
  2. Chris Woods = top fella. Cheers mate
  3. I agree Legend, not Rails fault in anyway. I had my order in several hours after it was first advertised and was showing pending for about a week before showing confirmed........ I understand this loco was very popular so would of thought Hornby could of increased the production run and not decreased it.
  4. Just had an email from Rails of Sheffield saying my pre order is now cancelled.......... Happy is not the word!!!!!!!!
  5. May have an orange and black Freightliner livery on the real ones soon.
  6. Light loco is being dispatched on monday to fetch the wagons at Trowse. Will not be me, im off to Broxbourne on another stone job....
  7. Normally I pick the train up at Peterborough but on thursday I went to Loughborough by van only to be informed the ground staff could not get to Trowse (again) so the job was cancelled....... Back in van to Peterborough and home by 10am so not a bad day for me :-)
  8. Hello beast66606. More stunning pictures :-) We had trouble with the ground staff getting to Trowse on time from Leicester so unloading time was cut very short and due to us having very old wagons with buckeye couplings the whole train had to be empty in order to run back to Tunstead rather than split the train and run the empty half back and leave the full half to be emptied another time...... So tomorrow the loco will run light to Trowse and return with the second half, thats if a driver is available to cover the job. If not it will be me again light loco on Thursday :-)

  10. Hi looking for either a East Midland set or Cross Country or even any of the old Great Western liveries. Must be 00 gauge. Thanks Darren Arnold
  11. For sheer power nothing can beat the 373`s for pleasure of driving HST`s for some dirty noisy fun a 47 and for power and comfort a class 90. Although the class 91`s are smart and nice to drive they are very uncomfortable for long journeys...... At the end of my career I think the HST`s will hold the best memories for me it will be a very sad day when they go :-(
  12. I watched this programme on TV with my eyes shut, fully expecting it to portray the railway in a negative light. The stationmaster`s comment about going into the complexities of the drivers diagramming procedures being very boring and very long winded were absolutely correct. As a Train Driver for East Coast based at Kings Cross i can confirm this to be very true. My findings about this programme after unfortunately watching it, was that it never set out to inform the public about how the increadibly complex railway operates, instead it just added more fuel to the railway crit
