I've got a "weathered" green one on pre-order, now that you've got yours maybe mine won't be all that long in coming.

taht looks seriously awesome

time to model a rail tour, wonder if it is viable to make a "Get Carter" railtour of deltic and blue/grey BR coaches
I just think people overvalue argument because they like to hear themselves talk.

You'll want one in blue with a 9000 series number (pre-TOPS, but post steam) and a train of early Mk.2s with Mk.1 restaurant cars in blue/grey (ideally E for Eastern region prefix on the coaches, but that's not going to be that noticeable). The loco will have the 4-character headcodes in use and the full set of cabside windows (no blanked off front quarterlight).
And the cool soundtrack, of course!

That engine looks nice. I tend to remember the overly tall lima ones. Maybe one day I shall have myself a nice one.

That does look beautiful.  Mine is on it's way as I write this and if it's as good as it looks then I will have to order another.

D9007 'Pinza' arrived on Friday, but I haven't even had the chance to get it out of the box until today.  Fantastic-looking model, quiet from the start, and still no problems after just over an hour's running in.

Forgot to order a decoder, so no chance to run on the real layout yet, but it will pull every goods wagon I own around my DC test track without batting an eyelid.

Sorry to be a wet blanket but I think the handrails on the nose are too prominent.

They would have looked better moulded on rather than as separate fittings.

Best regards,


Joe

A case for "Design Clever" and be inundated with brickbats just like Hornby?

Damned if they make them separate (stick out too far/cost too much) and damned if they don't (we want anything separate to be separateley fitted....)

Just a thought

Mine arrived today and was waiting for me when I got home from work.    All I can say is WOW.....   What an awesome model it is.  Those handrails do look a little clunky in the picture here but in the flesh they look fine to me, just about right.

I also think that if the orange ETH cable between the 2 boxes is painted black it will look a lot better. I was thinking maybe I would cut the cable and replace it using thinner wire but I think it may look fine as it is just painted black.

All my locomotives will have coupling at 1 end only and detailed buffer beam and cab at the other end.  I removed the body and it looks there will be room for a speaker where the cab interior is at the coupling end. That's some great news.   Only thing I can say that I wish was different and this isn't a complaint it just would have made my life a little easier is if it had been MELD or one of the smaller named ones. I will now need to buy a few more and renumber them and I will have to remove the nameplate, which is about the biggest one there is. Shawplan I believe do the Etched brass ones and it would have been so easy to just cover a small printed plate over with a larger one. Oh well.

Got my green one at the Wigan show and after being allowed to test it on The Circle Line (thanks, fellas), it is now safely back with me in Australia. However, it is still in it's box and is likely to remain so until I get more pressing problems to do with transport sorted! However I will post my assessment when it does emerge from the difficult packaging...

Hi Joe

Each to their own, but I beg to differ, I prefer to have them as separate fittings.

Regards

Roy

P.S. I must be losing it, I was sure I posted a comment about this yesterday but can't see it now!

I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH

RUN THEM IN GUYS... 60% power each way for 15-20 minutes then the same on 80% power after a fifteen minute cool down period... On dc of course.  Dont put a dcc chip in until you have run them in.
