Re the driving wheel spacing think that is common to most OO 9Fs due to the overscale flanges. Expect the Hornby one to be excellent until someones sneezes near it at which point half the detailing will fall or break off. Hornbys inability to use the correct materials for detail components is astonishing given the price they charge but I suppose it helps their profits.
