Hornby T9 and Schools Class

A few weeks ago I e-mailed Hornby asking for the release dates of these two locos, I got no answer; so at Warley I asked the Hornby rep and he said early December. Today I received an e-mail from Hornby apologising for their delay in reply and informing me that both models would be available towards the end of December and they could not guarantee before Christmas.

Anyone else have any info on this?

While it may look a first class model, I will not run on my layout any locos with traction tyres as I use Wahl oil for track cleaning & adhesion properties ( & we will steer clear of that subject on this topic) & Wahl Oil & traction tyres are not a match - the tyres get soft reasonably quickly.
Agreed Darren, nothing on the Hornby Website against R2711 T9 about having traction tyres & nothing on Hattons site either. It maybe detailed in the Service sheets but if you ordered from a dealer ( & not having Internet access) - you would not know until it turned up.
Then see if you can return it?
