    Hints from Hornby

    I find the prices quite stunning, there's only one model that caught my interest but I'll not be spending half a week's wages on a tiny four wheeled diesel. The mechanism in this tiny loco is probably on a par with one of the the two power bogies in the original Bachmann HO scale 44 ton GE centre cab, so dodgy to say the least when running on Hornby's own points even if it is coupled to the match wagon. Of course, we all know about Hornby's (optimistic, to say the least) due dates so I reckon there's going to be enough wish-listing and pledges to buy "one each of every available livery" on a certain box-opening forum to keep its members' posting frequency at commercially acceptable levels for the next 18 to 24 months.

    Hattons Class 66

    I'm all for it. Bachmann's tooling is aging now. And yes, whilst it's still a good model, there are some drawbacks to it that are starting to age considering the other models that are coming out on the model. My main gripe at the moment about them is the headlights. The lack of marker lights on both the 'original' lights with the rectangular markers through to the newer LED-style is quite a major thing. You only need to look at some other models like the Hornby 67 or Bachmann 150 where such things exist, although those models also have their own gripes. The Hattons model is catering for all variants, from cab windows to bodyside differences. Looking forward to the release and seeing how it works out.

    It could be less flat but went for the easy option. It can be improved later anyway. Working on ballasting at moment.
