Not just here but on my layout. I collected the only BR(S) T9 delivered to our local dealer, Hendford Halt and I was very pleased to get it before Christmas.

First impressions based on one question- does it look like a T9? The answer is an unequivocal 'yes' , I saw them 'down Bood' in the early 60's as they worked their last days on parcels and locals, the Hornby captures the look perfectly. The cab is the wide, late version, whilst the narrow cab was akin to the crew sitting 'on' the loco rather than 'in' the cab.

My T9 will earn its keep on the locals and parcels, a rake of Bachmann Colletts in early BR livery awaits.

My local model shop is working down the pre-order list and has not yet reached me. So far they have only received a few BR. I have ordered 1 BR with DCC and 1 SR without (only because 120 is for some reason not available as DCC apparently). Anyone any thoughts yet on how to install speaker for sound?

Message in overnight from Richard Davies of Hattons:

They expect the BR DCC-ready T9s (R2712/3) in today, 17th December


Also, there is a 'very slim chance' that the SR Green/NRM 120 (R2690) might be in by the end of the year, but 'not guaranteed'

Typical, the only T9 I'm after won't be here until 2009
But seeing as it has rubbers on I shan't bother


Only joking! 120 will join the BMR fleet eventually.

Picked mine up but cannot get it to move! Neither DCC nor DC. Back to shop today.

Glad I bought from local model shop and not mail order.

Swapped my non- functioning 30310 for a new one. Model shop had quite a number of returned Electrics and diesels to go back to Hornby but mine was their first duff T9. Some concern at lowered Hornby quality.
Replacement works a treat on my DCC test/programing track. A little jerky in reverse on Club DC layout - could be track needs another clean although club stalwarts (ancient Black 5 and 9F) have no trouble. Looks the bees knees.

Looking forward to 120 in SR green even though it will need a chip as it is not available in X version.
