    Glad you're still here and making a very positive contribution!

    Thanks Jamie for that wide range of options! Any livery you like then (well almost) but not red infilled "APT" on the front!

    Does anyone have any photos of 003 actually running on the mainline with the front end painted as per the photo of it above in the Crewe Heritage Centre? It may be how it's been painted when there, and may not be as it was when in service.

    I think that would have been very reasonable
  5. Of course it all depends on what the ORR decide. Their proposals may come to nothing at all.
  6. They have another livery for their planned Stirling to Euston service which I personally prefer: Again they state that the service will run wherever possible at 125 mph. It will be interesting to see where this is possible.
  7. I see that Grand Union's website states that the trains from South Wales to London will be MK4s pulled by Class 91s at 125 mph. So maybe there is scope for a new livery on a Class 91!
  8. Thanks for that Hilux5972, I haven't seen that before. TBQH it doesn't look half bad, but if it's the same pantograph as the 87 I'm not that impressed that it can't be posed.
  9. I'm sorry FullRake but I'm not clear as to what the upper model in the photo is? Presumably the lower model is the current Hornby offering?

    Sadly you only need to read back in this thread, there are a lot of modellers who are happy with only a little lighting, 8 pins instead of 21, no sound and no provision for it, despite the likely small additional costs of providing for these features, even if some don't use them!
  11. Well quite badly, of course, but how badly I didn't exactly know.
  12. From a lot of information I possess which is too extensive to explain here. Of course this is dependant on the extent of detailing Hornby go to (front & rear lights, cab lights, fine detailed servo pantograph, etc), but on past performance I am not expecting a great deal.
  13. I must admit to never really looking at the Mk 4 coaches in any detail, I just knew the Cavalex one's would be the best that could reasonably be done. How do Hornby's existing Mk 4's standup?
  14. Is that on this forum duff man? I'd be interested to "read all about it"!
