  1. Apologies Guys. I didn't get that problem.
  2. page 104 of "Yeadons locomotive names vol 1" 247 developments already do a plate. https://www.247developments.co.uk/fictitious_names.html I've a W1 converted from an A4 some time ago - I almost named it but changed my mind
  3. Plates were cast for Pegasus,in BR days too but never fitted. Strange, the name was very apt.
  4. All things are relative. And it's possible to argue this all kinds of ways. But a while back I was in conversation with a model shop owner. His view was that year on year less was being sold, impacting his profitability. Why? The eye watering costs. There'll be some who will be prepared to pay others won't.

A friend has a Hornby Tornado, I was surprised how strong it was. It bettered the latest Bachmann version (early examples were awarded the wooden spoon in that respect anyway). But I was also surprised how good the lining was better than Bachmann. i felt it w
  7. Pity Hornby don't revise their gresleys and include an RF. Still happy with hunt couplings?

    TBH I was expecting to see the Thompson s before the W1/hush hush. Probably more demand for the latter.
  9. I routinely remove the ribs on mine. Bachmann and Hornby
  10. I'm not after Southern coaches. I'd really like Thompsons in maroon. But I dread the RRP if they ever appear....
