I bought the Northumbrian, and together with my Charles H Newton A4 pulling a rake of Gresley 61ft teak coaches, they make a wonderful site on my layout. The Northumbrian set and the coach pack come with the most recent Hornby coaches that are heavy and very well made.
QUOTE (Rail-Rider @ 28 Oct 2005, 13:10)This isn't fault finding or criticism but a genuine question.
The Model Rail Forum banner at the top shows an A4, Silver Link(?), with teak coaches. I'm not sure of the manufacturer but, in any case, could I ask if the close coupling distance has been slightly 'enhanced' for artistic purposes or is the very small gap representative of what can now be expected? I suspect a bit of artistic licence and no problem if that is so, but I really would like to know.
