What i'm finding most annoying at the moment is the sandpipes on the 31 and 60 catching whilst negotiating the point work sometimes causing de-railments
why are they so long

Whilst I like them being there the proof that you can have too much detail is the fact that I don't know how long the sandpipes have been missing, I only noticed when I took them of my line to run on the club layout. When the locos are on shed it's hard to see the below footplate detail between the other locos and when they're running who's looking at the detail and not the overall effect of the train as a whole.

Last Thursday I emailed Hornby asking them if I could purchase a set of spare sand pipes for my Class 31 as I had accidentally broken one. Within a very short space of time (literally minutes) I received an email back saying that they were sorry but sand pipes were not available as a spare, but that they would supply me with a set. Much to my astonishment they arrived the following Friday morning free of charge
. Service or what!!!
