Will be replacing the ugly hand rails preferred the original metal ones much neater.

if you mean the the cab hand rails ? Then Bachmann have reproduced them correctly .They are flat stainless steel bar on the prototype not round steel bar.  There similar to those used on Peaks.

Agreed - and were much longer so more prominent on the early Peaks. Brassmaster do an etched version if the Bachmann ones offend.....

Dunno. Didn't know he works for a Mag. If it is a factory supplied review sample perhaps that should have been made clear

Hi there, yes it review sample for Railway Modeller. The clips were filmed while model was being tested for next issue of the Mag.

I've update the description to cover this. 

Something to keep me occupied on evenings in the hotel, while I find a place down here

Sorry Paul - we no longer have any Bachmann 24s, superceded by SLW ones.

Here's a link to his website. Look for Product Price list at the bottom of the page, then go to Locomotive Parts on Page 3.

Here are a couple of photos of both the Brassmaster and Ambis products, of which I have both.

Thanks for the photos,  with having a speaker fitted, does this mean there is no fan fitted.

The pics above show fan fitted so expect a different design of speaker to earlier models. Perhaps those that have handled the review sample could comment.

I have a spare 21 pin loksound decoder taken from a class 25. Im fairly sure its a v3.5. Will this work in the 24 using the built in speaker?

The v3.5 used a 100 ohm speaker. I would imagine the pre-fitted speaker supplied inside the latest 24  will be a 4 or 8 ohm speaker so probably not. Dependant on type & method of fixing it should be fairly easy to swop out the speaker. Hopefully the reviews will explain this.

After being teased with it being used in the last series of GMRC last year along with the crane.

Definitely do NOT use the pre-fitted speaker with a v3.5 decoder; you will probably blow the amp part of the decoder if you do. You should do as Porcy suggests and swap out the speaker. The down side to that is that the range of 100 ohnm speakers available is rather limited.

For information the speaker in the Class 24/1 is 8 ohm which will not work with a v3.5 decoder.

Sadly unidentified, but a '51xx' series example approaching Rugby from Clifton Mill c.1965 / 66 on a typical Peterborough line service...

 

Edit ; actually looking at the headcode it may well be the Horwich working...

In stock now at some retailers though the discounted price has increased from the previous model.
