  2. Glad I found this thread! I believe it was this loco I got to see in the flesh at Keighley Model railway clubs open day recently, it definantly impressed me. A fantastic bit of modelling!

  4. The new super detailed class 56 is generally a more superior model. You should also be able to EM the newer Hornby model by pulling the existing wheels out on the axles, saving the cost of new wheelsets. No doubt this method is frowned upon by some EM modellers!
  5. I've just been today to Toyland in Keighley and they have quite a bit in stock. I've managed to pick up a rake of three Hornby Thompson Suburbans for £73. Also picked up a Hornby J50 for £56 which I was thought was quite a bargain!
  6. Bought 'Dodo' earlier this week, and was so impressed I've ordered a second one. Just need to see if an EM conversion appears for them now!
  7. Could be worse, Hornby could have not bothered prdocuing DoG and then people would have to kit build....
  8. Saw one yesterday at my local model club. Looked very nice, ran very well too! Theres the odd moulded detail, but not noticable, especially when running! The buffers looked a little plastic, but a little bit of paint would sort that. If all the little details bug you that much I'm sure they can be changed/added, we are ment to be modellers after all!
  9. In this video two Hornby sentinels regauged to EM handle a large coal train. We found one could shift the whole train, but the drag on the fairly sharp corners beat them. The layout is KMRCs Cowgill. Jack
  10. Just picked up the last NCB one from my local model shop today. Saw my friends yesterday, which is now EM....
  11. Thanks! I've only been cutting in wood so far, and finding such a material like rowmark will be useful for some things
  12. That looks good! Out of curiosty, where can you get hold of Rowmark?
  13. Hiya. Very interesting to see. I am very privlaged to currently have the R&E Locos and the Dubbs loco in my collection, along with a 4 w coach and 2x bogie wagons. They are brillinat models, and a credit to your skill. Run beautifully as well. They impressed some people at Keighley Model Railway club (my local club), even someone who isn't interested in narrow gauge at all showed interest Thanks Jack
  14. There always the 48 DL, or ruston LB http://www.madge00n3.co.uk/Shop/Shop.htm I've got a prt built LB kit and very impressive kits
