Replacement Hymek arrived today and all is well with the world :)

Motto - don't accept a sub-standard new loco thinking it might improve. Just send it packing!

Something I've noticed on my two is that the weathering is subtly different between them, especially noticeable on the roofs. I'm actually quite happy about that! I may, though, apply some frame dirt to the bogies - I'm not too keen on the light grey underframe weathering that Farish tend to apply. Very pleased to have finally received them.

Blue parcels vehicles returned from Stu's workbench today and a super job he's made of them too.
Compare with the 'before' shots earlier in the thread (pics courtesy of mk1gtstu).....
