Indeed .......... and until the Trade come up with a ready to run Wainwright 'J' - or rebuilt railmotor pull & push set p'raps -  I guess we'll always have a few things to chivy them about.

Seconded, but the Wartime Black H was something I really wanted to see so I'm pleased with that announcement at least! Otherwise all a bit dull on the SR front this year from Hornby. 

 

Maybe a bit dull on the Hornby SR front (though there are 4 more merchant navies and good few terriers) but we have been gifted with the delightful D class from Rails anyway. And those 2-HAPs from blue box (and more class 33s). Enough to keep my spending going.

The only newly announced Merchant Navy in the 2020 range is the Limited Edition Centenary range Clan Line (although of course delivery of some of those already announced in past years is still to occur)

Very much looking forward to the D Class!!!

I recently obtained an SECR liveried H class through the 'bay (in fact from someone I know quite well on here).

 

It's almost brand new, nothing wrong with it at all but when I opened the box there were a couple of loose parts. These were not part of the detailing pack which was still sealed.

 

One was the roof vent and that was easily refitted.

 

The other was this:

It's about 5mm across, moulded in the brown colour of the frame and running gear. I've looked all round the loco and scanned a few YouTube videos but I can't work out where it should go...

 

Can you help?

It looks like a bull head rail chair, with a key in it to me?

I've checked my SR H and, unless this was peculiar to the SECR livery, I agree with @Sarahagain

So, possibly a 'scale' rail chair, designed to have fine section 'Bull Head' type rail threaded through, with the moulded 'key' completing the look?

 

 

C&L make several types of rail chairs, similar in appearance...

It could be that the eBay seller has some home-assembled track, and a stray rail chair has found its way into the loco box?

 

Maybe it would be an idea to ask the seller?

Ah! Click! Now it makes sense. Yes, you're right - he was building track using C&L chairs. And in fact, now I look at it in daylight, the plastic is a slightly different colour than the other brown detail parts.

 

So case solved! Thank you very much!
