Not too deep, no - too small, and therefore too far apart on the artwork up-thread. But that is hopefully no longer the case. 

 

What was your question re safety valves?   

 

 

Just the period of the large dome useage in LNER days !! . As to Cab windows, I will have to compare with the Oxford version against my Bradwell in due course, as above !!

Retailing through the discount supermarket chain. That'll be novel.

What I also like are the three link couplings, which I, for some reason, was not expecting, and the correct type of top lamp iron on the rear of the tender. 
I think, that with the excellent N7, Oxford have now found their feet, and future models should have no more big errors. I’ll my keep fingers crossed, but I know I don’t really need to.

I suppose it is to be expected, looking at the pics there seems to be a lot of Hornby influence. Not quite sure about the white grey cab interior though.

I wonder if I should treat myself to a 65817 - then I'll have the same loco in two scales, this being the one on Hawthorn Dene (also runs on Croft Spa).  Upgraded Union Mills.

The headshunt on NO PLACE will just take a K1 (carefully designed that way to stop me indulging in Pacifics) so a J27 will fit, though it is a bit big for the shed.

I was in Monk Bar Models purchasing a Bachmann J72 earlier today, and the retailer I was chatting with said something about the Oxford J27 being delayed until June time of next year so that various corrections can be made to the EP’s that have been seen so far. I don’t know how accurate this may be, but if anyone has any additional information it would be much appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Rob.

I’m happy with that revision, since things will have been affected by the virus. For those short of money it gives a bit of extra saving up time too.

I hope so. What great loco's, one of the finest 0-6-0's lasting well into 1967. I will have one even though I model the SR(BR).

 

Assuming Oxford Rail are getting this model developed and manufactured in China we may have a very long wait with all the sabre rattling about China in the UK Press.

 

Kind regards,

So June has gone and no sign of a J27.  July half done, will we see it by September?

 

All of the Hattons listings (bar one) are still saying July-Sept, so for now at least, nothing has changed in that respect. By September it'll only be 1 year late, there has been worse delays in model railway circles, stuff like Class 24/1's, 158's, etc.........
