Hi I recall XC hired a pair of 73s  on two occasions, the first pair expired Banbury with fire bells going. Second pair got to Brum playing a merry tune on the fire bells ... to the consternation of the station staff. - bet it cleaned the crud of the engine blocks.

Without rebuilding the 73s would never have been in the running for the sleepers - but for the models I guess we will get a repainted standard model - it basically will look the part !

Before you all go buying, these are £79.99 from Collett's! 

I'll be after the NSE.  I would like the Dutch, but I can't spend any more this year on N.  :'(

I don't really understand why gaugemaster are letting colletts undercut them by 20 quid on their own limited run models but I might order one from both and see what happens

Had you placed an order with Gaugemaster then? I've e-mailed them asking if they will price match or allow me to cancel and reorder.

Thanks for the tip, Tank.  Green & Electric Blue ordered with a £40 saving!

Am I right in thinking the Green version is a JA and the Electric Blue JB? The bodies are quite different.

I would hope this will be the case, as they have the different bodies in their toolkit, but they managed to do 73142 Broadlands last time with a headlight...and the wrong shades of grey!
I know some folk were happy with their models, but mine went back.

Thanks Bob, guess we'll see what comes out of the lucky dip in January.
