An email just in from Hattons:

Dapol 2S-006-002 Class 14xx steam locomotive & autocoach in GWR livery

This item, viewable at http://www.ehattons.com/StockDetail.aspx?SID=58875
 will not be released DCC ready as previously announced. This item is a re-run of an earlier model and does not have a DCC socket, so any DCC decoder will need to be soldered in.

Just caught the "what doorbell" muppet from Yodel in time.

Despite me selecting Royal Mail and despite adding 'Not Yodel' to the notes. Despite me complaining about this before.

Hattons just lost a customer, and I'm cancelling my pre-orders and sending them elsewhere.

Sending stuff Yodel when the customer selected otherwise is poor. Claiming you won't do it if there is a note to that effect and then doing it anyway is unacceptable.

I  guess I'm lucky. Yodel subcontracts to a local firm here, for smaller packages, and he is excellent.
I keep forgetting to add Cheers Mike on the end of my posts....

So.....  Cheers Mike

Oh the bad experiences I've had with Nodel...
Although I ordered something from Hattons on a Sunday and it arrived on the Monday...

Just had an email from Hatton's telling amongst other things, about their DCC decoders:

http://www.ehattons.com/StockDetail.aspx?SID=62786&utm_source=NGaugeNewsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20130808

A 10 pack for 98 may be good value for someone like me who is dithering on the edge of going over to DCC.

Has anyone had any experience of these or are they too new on the scene?

They look a bit too large for use in N gauge, 2" long by about an inch wide?  :worried:

That sounds huge, Paul!

Not doubting you but the Hatton's email says:
Suitable for some N gauge locos from manufacturers including Graham Farish and Dapol, Hatton's DCC decoders are a great way to get more from your model .....

Oops, in my defence I have an opticians appointment on saturday :D

Even if they are small enough they'd only be good for hardwired applications, no 6-pin plugin unfortunately  :(

I'm not too keen on the harness ones but they have 4 functions which is interesting.  :hmmm: :)

A bit disappointing then for those like me that were looking for 'plug n play'.

Mixed reviews on RMWEB

Not 6 pin so difficult to fit in any N gauge I would think !

Today the prices for secondhand stuff from Hattons have appeared in dollars, with parity between doallars and pounds. Could be a bargain for those who have plenty of the former!
