NEW to the NCiM from Hornby - Princess Coronation No.46229 Duchess of Hamilton

Any news on delivery of Duchess of Hamilton?

An update from Locomotion would be useful, as they said they would be around from 13th November if I remember correctly.

Spoke to Locomotion Models on the phone today. They haven't arrived as yet, but could arrive any day now...

I think from memory, that there will be a subseuent delay in sending out the models, as the Shildon shop staff who would normally do this, will I presume, be tied up at the Warley show over the weekend.

 

There was a similar issue last year (APT-E?) or some such model, that had arrived, but everyone was busy at a show.

 

The wait goes on ...

I see Rails have received their Limited Edition version of the Duchess, so Locomotion should have had theirs.

As someone else has previously posted, it's a shame that those of us who have ordered and paid for the model have not been kept up to date with the current situation regarding availability.

I spoke to a chap at locomotion today and he was totally rushed off his feet.

They are down on staff plus trying to sort orders plus preparing for shows.

So maybe we should cut them a little slack, they will get round to us.

But seeing that they announced the model on this site, shouldn't they at least keep their customers upto date? Just takes 30 seconds to type a line.

That is a much better photograph than the ones opening this thread. I particularly like the contrast of the gloss finish and the matt black smokebox and deflectors. Much better than earlier NRM offerings where everything was gloss. Sadly, funds do not permit.

Looks very similar to 46256 which is a good thing imho

Cross posting from the Hornby thread, but any pictures of the final production model under normal conditions will help us undecideds if we like the finish. The pic on the other thread certainly looks more subtle in terms of shine than that posted above.

Just received and road tested mine.Thank you. Exhibited the usual wayward front bogie causing derailments,Quick fix applied by gentle downward pressure on holding bracket and away you go.It runs beautifully....,graceful,.smooth and silent.....Once again I love the signature gloss paint finish.A lovely thing. Well done Brian and the Locomotion team and of course to Hornby's capable R&D team.

Just had an email from APC saying mine has been delivered. Hopefully that means one of my neighbours has kindly taken it in, and that it's not been left on the doorstep :O

Doubt it.

 

I had a card through the door from APC saying tried to deliver. Have spoken to APC to try to rearrange delivery - they will only deliver between 08.00 & 16.00 M-F, will not give a specific time for delivery, will not deliver to a neighbour as it has to be signed for, will not deliver to a different address (APC must be cheap because they certainly arent good). They suggested I go to the depot to pick up, thats miles away and why should I waste my time and petrol going to collect something I paid to be delivered. Even more annoying was the table full of models at Warley, could have got one there, be enjoying it now, and saved the £8.50 delivery charge.

 

Really not sure how Ill get my model now.

 

Not happy to say the least.
