Two 9Fs on order, Evening Star from Rails of Sheffield and a black one from Hattons ... hopefully spreading the delivery risk! I've been luck to date with stuff from both excellent shops, let's hope it's maintained! Oh, and I can't wait! They look so good.

Now received both of my 9Fs. Both excellent; Evening Star had a loose smokebox door handrail, but that's about it. Considering all the detail, and the distance travelled, I think that's pretty good. They somehow seem less delicate than Hornby's recent models (this is an observation, not a complaint or criticism) and capture the immense size and power of the real things pretty well. Once you've noticed the squashed-in cylinders (clearances?) you can't stop, but it's a minor compromise. Both run well.

Roll on Hornby's Brit!
