I wonder how successful these will be. The previous tooling was not that bad.

 

They'll be a big success; the old model is very crude and not up to modern standards (pun unintended!)

Here's a comparison between the newly tooled version and the older one:

Major improvements are fully see through spoked wheels, DCC ready, wire handrails, cab glazing, NEM sockets and more added details. Downside is the reversion to using huge ugly hex bolts to hang the motion on the wheels and replacing some with chunkier plastic bits. The older one is not bad for cast metal but the new one ups the game.

The Night Mail set (47522 in Doncaster Green plus a couple of red vans etc) has snuck in under the radar and appeared at certain box shifters.  Have ordered one just for the loco and will probably sell on the rest of the set.

Bad timing for me, I am going N Gauge so need to get rid of some OO gauge stuff to fund it. I wanted this set but was hoping it would come in after the trade in, fingers crossed there will be some left in a few weeks.

I've noticed that the 71-329 Class 150/2 150247 in BR Super Sprinter livery - weathered has arrived at Hattons despite the Bachmann site saying it's not due until September! I've been wanting to buy one for a while, but as the price is a rather eye watering £145 I think I'll leave it for now.
