Taking about the pendalino, the train pack comes with a non-working pantograph on the coach where as the extra coach has a working one? I can't recall the real pendo's having 2 pantograph's in use or am I wrong?
Will this mean removing a coach or is there a blanking plate to cover the non working one as per the dapol version.
Regarding the Skaledale Gasometer, I think it is based on the one at the preserved gasworks at Fakenham, Norfolk - see the thread elsewhere in the MRF about 'Hornby cooking with gas'.
Also bearing in mind the use of Goathland on the NYMR for some of the current station buildings, the new red/white timber station buildings look rather like those at Grosmont, also on the NYMR.
And the former inaccurately named 'Butty Boat' has at least been renamed just as a 'Canal Boat', which alas could be confused with the new 'Canal Boat' which is more of a canal pleasure cruiser. They'll get it right one day.
Pendolino looks promising, and vastly better than Dapol. The nose looks rounded for a start. A decent pantograph will be a first at Hornby.
Will the mechanism shift a scale formation?
Will any intermediate trailers be available for the Eurostar?
At least the Pannier and the wagons are actually authentic to go with the Castle and the Pullmans are useable and basically accurate , if older tooling. Once the waveform's cleaned up this could be a very good DCC converter pack for lovers of copper caps
Skaledale looks great. I think the Lower Skaledale stuff will kit start a lot of minimum branch line/ light railway projects. Ideal for that Bachmann 2-6-0 and a BCK or a Heljan 26
I take it those CIWL sleepers have nothing to do with either the Night Ferry or Nord main line? Believe these are quite well regarded existing tooling?
