Hi Everyone I have just bought my first Hornby model for over 45 years. I liked the look of the model and as i travelled a lot on the LNER in the 60's behind Deltic's I thought I would treat myself to a British Brand for a Change.
Has anyone have this model yet. I do know they have had issues with the smoke Deflectors breaking in Transit and they are addressing them as I phoned my order they assure me things will be okay. Babs

Hornby have indicated that the mid driving wheel steps on future production of the "Hush-Hush" will be supplied for the user to fit if clearances allow. Another self defeating idea as how do you know clearances allow without testing them in place
Duff locos are unfortunately a fact of mass production with minimal testing and checking. What Sam should do is that any sane person would do and return it for a replacement. Instead the clown proceeds to review the thing and then criticises it - the Bachmann ROD 2-8-0 was a classic example of his stupidity - broken tender coupling.
