Having seen the initial models in the flesh I can only concur. They are superb!

The clever option of two wheel-sets for the Cartazzi truck gets round the issue of tight radii curves but I am sure that some additional side-play could be added to the flanged set.

A word of warning, though. Having chipped a few of these (and Hornby's A4s) I would advise extreme caution when dismantling the body. All that fine detail is very fragile - a foam support is almost mandatory! I have also found that Bachmann chips are sometimes a tight squeeze, Lenz or Gaugemaster might be a better choice for smaller locos.
