There is a God !!!

Ha! Ha! Don't tell me persistence doesn't pay off!

There is, however, one small problem...

...what am I going to gripe about now?


What?  No LMS Flatiron?  What is wrong with these people?  Do they have no idea of their market?


Have a nice day y'all, from one VERY happy bunny!

I'm semi-surprised they're not doing the twins as, you know, a twin pack. I wonder how many of us are going to be buying both because otherwise it would look silly?

Since my layouts are set around 1964, I'll just be taking 10001 as by 1963 it was the only one running, so only the one for me, certainly.

It would make 'consumer' sense, but not 'manufacturer' sense. Most people would expect a twin pack of Twins to be less than the price of individual Twins.

I am the proud owner of a 57 and two GWR Dapol sleepers. If I buy all three packs I can replicate the Friday night Riviera from Paddington to Penzance in full. I'll have to pre-order those. I had given up on a night Riviera so this is a very nice surprise. Thank you Bachmann.
Working doesn't seem to be the perfect thing for me so I'll continue to play.

Not if you put it in a different box and include an LMS postcard and some cheap collectable model (was there an LMS bomber akin to the Vulcan? :) )

Indeed twins surely as a twinpack with one unpowered is just total sense,  also a 7 year gap ( early crest) in the livery options is also a bit odd...

martyn

The Twins were inevitable, given my track record of kit building or repaints.

But not surprised, they've been long suggested. They did work singly quite a bit, as well as a pair, especially in later life.

On a more personal note, I'd like to thank @Bob G (@Dalteth) , @Hailstone  & @martyn for making this happen. I know it seems unhelpful, but somehow, whenever enthusiastic & skillful modellers produce an excellent piece of work it somehow seems to move the manufacturing gods into action to enable us mere mortals to possess such items.

I thank you for your sacrifice.

We'll get the usual "costs almost as much to make a dummy loco as it does a powered one" but these really do cry out for a twin pack of powered + dummy. The same applied to the class 28
Therefore I'll be getting just the one model (372-918) of 10001 in green with SYP

Green?

GREEN!?

Burn the heretic!

The DC cost at Rails is £157 and I ain't willing to pay double that for a pair or I might have gone for the more iconic 2 x black/silver LMS (lost my senses) pair

Not a very 'LMS' aircraft, but the best I can come up with is the P-82 Twin Mustang...




I'd buy it!
