Turns out I'd not paid as much as I thought I had on these, damn  :doh:

Looking forward to the delivery, one of the OO club members was running the Accurascale TPE set the other night and they looked great.

My Lowland Set is on the way!

Big ask for anyone getting the Highland Set - can I have the coach numbers for each of the packs please so I can update my website.

Highlander pack 1 (Aberdeen)
Highlander pack 2 (Fort William)
Highlander pack 3 (Inverness)
Highlander pack 4 (Inverness)

Many Thanks

Tony

I've received a "we have your parcel" email from Royal Mail, I'm hopeful...

Will a 92 haul sixteen, that's the question!  :hmmm:

Well if it don't then my GBRF one will be running "dead in tow" with the CS one!

I have a 92 and I'm quite sure it will do so easily. My Farish Coronation handles 11 without a problem and the 92 has more mass and twice as many driving wheels.

Are the TPE MK5s in this country now?

Not mk5s though? I think a lot will depend on the inside bearing bogies. The design Revolution have opted for looks good, and I hope will run well, but there will always be more drag than with pinpoints. Plus Revolution stock is often pretty heavy, and I think haulage on the 92 is a bit underwhelming. Still, I've got eleven 92s, so plenty of testing opportunity!  ;D

As I have more locos than trains the CS/GBRF combo might become a permanent fixture.  :D

Or buy more stock, tough choice... CS ones used to be a fairly common fixture on freights too, notably the IPA car carriers, GBRf spent a lot of time on silver bullets.

I like that idea, my CS is sound and the GBRF has added weight which gives it excellent traction effort. hopefully that will be enough to get the rake up the club helix.
Just got the notes mine are on their way, so hopefully in a couple of weeks I will try them out.

Pairing sound and non-sound fitted models has always seemed like a massive headache! I gave up on my 68s, there was too much variability in the start up sequence to reliably match the non-sound one. Just bought another sound fitted one! ;D
