Just to rub salt into the proverbial these sets are now being sold on eBay

Starting to think I sould just order my set from Hornby and pay the 12 extra, just in case something is going amiss with the box shifters orders.

No. Just as before.

Dont assume that the ebay seller has stock yet. I pretty much guarantee you that there will be a delay in sending your order as they wait for stock

I tend to find this is the case quite often. Osborns always seem to be the first to show stock. I assume because they are slightly smaller and the biggest box shifters have to catalogue and shelve a lot more stock/get more deliveries so it takes them a couple of days to go through their inventories.

That's a pity; it's the between-cars gap that needs reducing; no real need for any couplers on the cab ends.

Hi

A quick question

The Arnold Hornby Brighton Belle, is it supposed to have running lights ie white at the front and red at the back

On mine F0 only turns on the extra bright cab light at the driven end, with no actual running lights.

Is this normal or should it have running lights as well, I forgot to check when I had the body off to fit the decoder and its such a tight fit I don't want to risk pulling it off again.

Thanks

I only have the forward cab lights and the number panel lit when running forward with just the number panel lit at the back, change direction and it's exactly the opposite.

Just got it up and running, which straight out of the box is very smooth.

To add a cautionary note, one of the coach destination boards fell off when first taking it out of the box, so beware of similar things happening as I'm sure it's probably not a one off.
