Apparently Hornby are going to upgrade the old Lima model with the following : new motor, seperate windscreen wipers (instead of the moulded into the window ones), NEM coupling pockets plus a few other details. I'm going to wait & see what the model is like before I decide to buy one or not. You can bet that the performance will be super smooth & also it will have an excellent paint job. I guess that it wont have working lights but nor does the bachmann model. I have had a pair of bachmann 20's before & they struggled to run double-headed as one was a lot faster than the other one (I only operate on DC as I dont yet understand DCC or want to spend money converting everything). I'm more convinced that with Hornbys new super smooth motors that double heading will be a lot more easier. Should the models be a notable improvement overthe old Lima one then I will be adding a blue & a railfreight examle to my fleet. Once these are released you can bet that the old Lima ones will be worth next to nothing!

By the way - does anyone know when they will be released as they were scheduled for 2nd quarter 2008????
