Looks very nice - even better without those awful tension locks. Also nice to see that the loco/tender gap is not life threatening for the fireman.

QUOTE Interesting to see that new releases announced 1 January on Hornby.com. Stops any one publication spoiling, I guess.

Thats a shame. Hoped they'd learned their lesson and would release on 24/12/08. This would prevent the Hornby Forum being taken "off air" just when little Johny wants to find out about his trainset that Santa delivered. Someones' bound to leak the releases , and REX is usually published around 29th , so the Modern Image stuff is out before then.

Why not announce it when they have their open day in Dec. These days we don't need to wait for Model Rail to regurgitate the press release. With the internet information should be instantaneous, and those who don't have it can catch up in the model railway press.

Looking forward to Dougs usual excellent coverage- I think alone last year he had more information about the products eg new corridor connections on Staniers etc- everyone else failed to mention this. Do you get an invite Doug?

I have one of these on order from Ontracks, back when they listed it last January with a very good price that they soon increased. Thankfully they have left my order at the initial price. However, since then I haven't heard much about this. It was posted around the same time that Hornby were to use the loksound 3.5 chip, but I haven't really had this confirmed, nor if the sound has been done in house by Hornby or if they have bought subcontracted this. Does anyone have any more info on this release?

Thanks Brian. When my loco arrives I'll put it through its paces and report back.
