Thanks for the review. Quite interesting although I have no intention of going 'DCC' at the moment.

By coincidence a catalogue from 'the Entertainer' chain of shops was put through the letterbox yesterday and features this set amongst three others. Unfortunately it describes it as 'DDC'
and it's all of 5p cheaper than Hornby's list price.

Regarding the power clip: Hornby now do the power track R8206, originally supplied with the live steam sets, as a separate item and which is a much more discrete connection to the track. Looks a bit like an extra-large 'hot-box' detector, perhaps? Can Gary tell us if the RFI suppression capacitor has been left out of the power clip?

Regards,
John Webb

Thanks for that. It sounds like this is a development of the R8206 track - this has a suppressor capacitor across the track in between the rails covered by a little plastic cover moulded to look a bit like a short wooden walkway.
