Well, up to yesterday it was still "Coming Soon" and "Out of stock" so somethings going on...

 

It's probably just somebody at Margate trying to fathom out how to change something on their website ...

... but which 48DS do you have on order?

 

I'm sure that today, there a many that have had a similar e mail from Hattons informing them that their model  (R3704 in my case) is due in October.

 

Having said that, previous E mails from Hattons have told me that it was due for delivery in July  (18/01/19),  August  (14/05/19), October/December  (15/08/19) and back to October  (today).

 

Good game innit!

 

I received an email from Hattons today that my R3707 is expected to arrive in December. Maybe they needed a little more time to produce miniature bottles of Queen Anne Whiskey as a Xmass gift for people who pre ordered R3707 ^_^

The Dewers one. So I can wait, patiently......., no twist in my knickers! No point in getting uptight about it, nothing I can do.

What a lovely little model! Runs well (fantastic slow running), easily detachable from the conflat running wagon and the finish is fantastic. I give it a big thumbs up! With our stock arriving this morning, the mega task of calling customers, packing and sending them off now commences! Look out for them at your local shop VERY soon!

It's arrived!
The all new (and very tiny) Hornby Ruston and Match Truck! 
Here's a few quick photos taken between shifts...

Really is a little work of art! Runs very sweet from what I've seen so far too! :)

I presume the small panel below the coupling hook is the blank covering the NEM socket?

If not I'll need to  make some sort of wire loop that will plug in underneath the buffer beam. It looks really nice and though I will probably get the Dewers one,  I also like this  livery, not dissimilar to Hatton's  Andrew Barclay "Coronation" green. Co-incidently is very close to the colour of the  loco on display at Dewers in Aberfeldy. A potential project in the making!?

I found the answer, or most of it, on the other thread that is running. I hadn't realised there were two threads running on the same subject. Anyway, at least one of the Rustons has arrived and is getting very good reviews, which is very pleasing.

Maybe it's an appropriate time for the moderators to combine the threads?
