  1. Mine arrived on Monday by tracked royal mail. Having looked at it and run it now I'm very pleased I supported this model by coughing up in full and in advance. Its one of the finest rtr 148th scale locos I've seen to date. Was it worth the wait?... yes Was it worth the confusion of delivery dates and general lack of communication over many years?.. no Would I pay in advance again?.. I'd have to see how sonic fair in communicating thier next products release? Will i be getting another 56xx this time via rails?.. definitely. On a final note.. once again I hold my head in my hands at the fact that nobody has still had the nounce to do a gwr mogul in n. One of the most go anywhere do anything locos which worked right up to the end of steam?... come on guys!
  2. I've tried logging into the 'my account ' section on revolutions website but that just takes me to e Bay? My point is have I got a model coming or not... I ordered and to my best memory.. as nearly four years ago now!! Paid for a loco.. but now I'm concerned nothings gonna appear and I'll miss the limited run via rails.. Pls can someone from revolution or sonic confirm my locos status ? Cheers mark henshaw
  3. Yes I've seen this cheers but couldn't find any images or info to verify them.
  4. Having searched the Web and spoke with a fair few I am at a loss for any info at all! My question is could you have a curved running shed in the steam period, country or gauge doesn't matter. Not a repair shed I.e. not one with an overhead crane or where locos may be disassembled etc. Just a single road through shed where day to day servicing and storage would be done. The curve doesn't need to be tight either, e.g. +4 chains. Further to which if not! then for what reason? I can see, lot's of reasons for not working on locos unless they are straight but for storage and cleaning i see none? Building the structure would not be any great concern either, I've worked on plenty of bent buildings most of which weren't meant to be lol. But they got built regardless Any authoritive comment, or a lead to a prototype example will be much appreciated. This is leading directly to a model and not just a passing interest so assistances will be of great help. Cheers mark
  5. Railex Poynton 5/6th Sept 2020. We have concluded not to have our 35 layout show at the leisure centre this year for obvious reasons. If the world is open for business on this weekend? For 2020 we will be staging a smaller show at the Bulls Head pub SK12 1AG on the same weekend including our core contributing groups and a few smaller quality local layouts and traders. Our main show will return in 2021. All exhibitors and traders are being contacted by phone as of yesterday and details of the smaller 2020 and our 2021 events will be published and noted on our website railexpoynton.co.uk once we know ourselves, so pls bear with us for further information.

  6. Many thanks to everyone who came in whatever capacity and for all your comments support and feedback. We we're up 21% on last year so very pleased and are looking forwards to the challenges of our next event. A new website is coming soon at railexpoynton.co.uk which will give the details of what we can do on 5th & 6th September 2020 with an extended and improved venue! Cheers on behalf of a long list of tired boys and girls.
  7. A huge thank you to everyone today. .. We're 1/3rd up on sat last year and have received some generous feedback. A relaxing evening is now being enjoyed by a bunch of guys and gals that are stars. Eat drink and be merry, youve done a great job. Story to be continued tomorrow morning.
  8. Well here we go again... another very late finish table making for some last minute bookings last night and stand pack printing since early today. Today we collect the stewards and kit from afar in advance of Friday! Exhibition managers worst nightmare this year as cancellations have forced me to enter my own layout Aston Magna, the new roundy-roundy variant of which is way too much work for a quick assembly last job Friday eve, so its returning for one last showing in the end to-end-style. So after polishing the bar and preparing in advance of Saturdays post show beverage this morning i'll have to find whats left of the end tables and notice boards etc and replace the bits that have already gone up the chimney!! oh and i should probably sort out some stock and locos!! all good fun
  9. One late trade entry... Railway Memorabilia Shop. Please be advised that some roads in Woodford and Hazel Grove will be closed on Saturday around mid-morning til lunchtime, for the Tour of Britain cycle race passing through the area. During this period we advise if: coming from the north or west to approach Poynton via the A555 (airport east link road) then A523. If approaching from the south or east to use the A523 from Macclesfield. We anticipate this disruption to only be for a couple of hours! Cheers
  10. Just returned from Steam Swindon's model railway festival where a gang of us have been assisting set up, providing wiring and cloths, then demonstrating and layout assisting as needed over a long and beer fueled 4 days lol...a good sleep now before we begin the build up to next weekend's activities... Cheers and hopefully see some of you over the weekend?
  11. We've concluded this years content now, so our opening post has been amended accordingly. Many thanks to all those that have stepped in late in the day, besides everyone else who's committed themselves.. all that's needed now is to put it all together in an orderly manner lol! cheers mark
  12. Apologies for the delay this year in posting our show content, entirely due to the huge number of changes we've been faced with due to all manner of reason. At this time we accordingly still have room for a couple of not too large! layouts and a trader, especially a tools and modelling materials one! One layout needs to be a 'travel each day in your own vehicle' example and for the other from further afield (approx-over an hour each way) we still have one DOUBLE! hotel room available on the fri/sat eve's for a layout 'not requiring van hire or ferries etc' for either a couple? a single person? or two guys that get on well LOL .... any takers or suggestions will be looked upon with glee I can be contacted here or more directly through our website at themodelshow.co.uk cheers Mark
