I'm also still waiting for my Evening Star ex Hattons.

With the Ivatt mine didnt run well at all, but an hour on mu Bacrus Rolling Road and it was sorted. Besides I expect to have to fiddle just a little with a new loco, it sort of goes with the territory.

Yes I've shopped in Hobby Rail, it's an Aladdins Cave, tiny but packed full of very useful items, you have to dig a bit.

Just like a model shop should be ! I'm still waiting Hattons to Hatch my Evening Star. Must being handled by the slow delivery section. Now there's a shop that was a major disappointment - Hattons. Normally good at mail order, but the shop is a major disapointment.
I did read somewhere on one of the forums that someone had managed a 100 wagons behind one. " Maybe it was the total test layout at Model Rail after a few shots of nandrolone.

I got my Evening Star from Hatton's this morning. This is an impressive loco even by modern R-T-R standards.
I can't fault the finsh anywhere, the loco ran well straight out of the box on DC, and with an hour on my rolling road had really settled down to be silky smooth. I hav'nt installed a decoder yet, as I only have a short section of test track at the moment. Well done to Graham Hubbard and his team at Barnwell this is an outstanding product, I will be buying more 9F's.

We clanked my Evening Star and my mates 92116 round his wall hugging 26ft x10 ft garage layout and they both perform perfectly. With a slight incline 92116 managed most of his coaching stock (38) with wheel slip on a slight incline. Impressive.
