  1. It’s that time of the year where it’s warmer in the garage and I’ve realised I’ve neglected my layout thread. Since my last update: - I’ve laid and expanded my lower fiddle yard, - developed an upper depot area which actually turned out better than I’d anticipated. -extended lower fiddle yard capacity to include an extra four sidings to allow me to locate four more fixed formations, added bonus is I’m now able to accommodate one or two HST formations. -extensive testing of fiddle yard helix. -extended depot headshunt to accommodate locos or dmu sets. As many will know you’re always seeking to improve the flow of operation on a layout. Plenty more updates to come..
  2. Hi, The BR Intercity Executive brake composite (R40020) arrived in the post today. At first glance it looks very nice in my humble view. Bit of weathering on the roof will tone down the clean appearance. In time I hope other white roof executive derivatives will be produced, as I’d definitely buy them. regards Peter
  3. Hornby HST Valenta TTS decoder pack appears to have come back into stock with Hornby as was charged earlier today for a pair. Good news as I’d actually forgotten that I’d ordered some.
  4. Hello, Just got round to testing out my BR Blue LMR version 25093. Upon going to fit some couplings I noticed these circular stubs underneath the buffers. Any idea what this is supposed to be? As it’s fouling any coupling on either end... or does it pull off- apologies if this has been mentioned before. cheers Peter
  5. Fantastic work on the depot there Darius. The added detail of lighting really adds atmosphere.
  6. Well these wagons are absolute stunners. Cav, Alex, a huge thank you for bringing these to market. I received my two versions yesterday and they are amazing. In hindsight (yes I know) I wish I’d ordered a couple more. Hey ho. thanks again. best wishes Peter
  7. Well the awaited replacement weed killing carriages are now back in stock at a Invicta. Was a nice surprise to get a call asking if I wanted my set. Great service by Kerry in difficult circumstances. Many thanks.
  8. For those who are keeping an eye. Dapol have released undecorated sound fitted version Mogul clip here:
  9. Hi there, I contacted Hornby customer services via email a couple of weeks ago when the corrected body shell versions began to materialise in model shops. I asked whether I needed to obtain a correct body shell through the shop I’d previously purchased through or by returning the original 60 to them. Hornby customer services to their credit responded this week advising they would supply a replacement body shell to me direct. The replacement arrived this morning in the post less than 48hrs after first Hornby correspondence. Hats off to Hornby for handling the query so promptly. Regards Peter

    Dapol Class 21/29

    I took a couple with my camera phone at Warley on Saturday. There was such a scrum that I wasn’t able to hang around with my son in tow. To my eye they appeal, even if I model the western region! Sorry the lighting was rubbish, so photos appear dark. cheers Peter
  11. Sorry not the greatest shot of the JHA wagon, as there was a scrum as usual, so wasn’t able to stop and chat plus had a 4yr old who was hungry. There was no class 59 was on display that I saw. cheers Peter
  12. A shot of the 158 samples from Warley yesterday. Spoke to one of the reps in the lounge as they were keen to see what items I was interested in and apparently they’re expected to arrive in the middle of next year. cheers Peter
  13. Had a nosey in the Bachmann lounge at Warley yesterday and the current revised sealed beam sample was on display. I didn't get much of a chance to lurk as my young son was getting restless to spend his pocket money. cheers Peter
  14. I took a few of the upcoming units and in my humble opinion they look very nice to the eye. And if I get time I’ll post a few others of the sealed beam class 45’s with the updated body shell in the relevant topic. cheers Peter
  15. Hmm I'd tend to agree having had a look of photos of the model on Hattons website. It would appear the large blue square should not be aligned to the orange cantrail. And there should be a small gap. Nevertheless I'm still going to buy one once they come into stock at my local shop. Side on photo from Flickr..
