Three posts is a bit of an under statement.

I sit at a computer at work and spend about an hour reading the new stuff first thing and pop back when I get bored to see if anything new has been happening. I guess it depends where you look as I know there are some posts where 10 -20 posts have been made in a day, RMWeb for example.

QUOTE Soon we will all start talking seriously about 2007!

That will be interesting. It will be good to see what developments will come. We still haven't seen the promised goodies from the UK manufacturers yet for 2006. The DCC sound Bachmann locos are yet to be priced never mind released and Hornby digital still hasn't happened yet although they seem quite proud of the box the unit will be sold in.

I am still waiting for the pendolino. when they announced it they were playing it down. i have set my expectations very low but it would be nice to be supprised.

What are your bets for the DCC sound loco's? i think £150

Peter

Have you seen the article on the Hornby website? I was gobsmacked, I coudn't give a monkeys what the box looks like. It's the technology we want to know about.

I'm hoping for 150 quid but expecting closer to 200. Continental sound locos are about 300 euros in Germany, but this is the tax free price I pay. Probably closer to 350euros which would be close to 200 quid is the over the counter price in Germany.

They may be cheaper though as my Lilliput BR 05 is basically the same as a Bachmann steam loco in the UK but the price is double what you would pay for a comprable UK outline loco so I'm hoping they will drop prices to be inline with what the UK market will pay.

I guess some people feel the need for others to entertain them. I know I certainly put on at least three post a day myself and like DWB says so do about 10 other people so I'm f
d if I know what forum he's been looking at.

QUOTE (StewartR @ 17 Oct 2006, 04:42) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I would write something if I had something good to report.

I recently bought,

The Hornby Flying scotsman set and the master cutler complete set.

Excellent track,controller,shame about the CRAP loco's and carriages,in one week of use the chrome has come off the wheels on the scotsman "budget" coaches,half the detail parts have fallen off the "Prince Palladine".

The loco's and rolling stock are such crap it's unbelieveable,my 30 year old hornby stuff I run everyday is in better nick than new stuff after a week piss poor,.

So I will be buying more secondhand stuff and refurbing It I think,if you have any old stuff you want to move on let me know.Hornby and that lot can keep DCC as well if its anything like their shody GLUED together locos and carriages!!!

Stew.

I actually posted a similar issue on a different thread about this. My White Knight is hopeless at pulling coaches. It has very little traction. Not enough weight and the motor is weak. Visually they are spot on but they seem to be designed as display models rather than working ones. Bit disappointed as I thought Hornby were getting their act together.

QUOTE (double00 @ 17 Oct 2006, 04:32) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Well it depends on the class type of entries - "true rail modelling" and "pure non-relating subjects". You just have to read past entries and see the high recorded entries by members who are interested in only increasing their ratings! Myself! I concentrate in reading and rendering topics of actual railway postings, together with helping other members queries.
At another opposition forum site, I suggested starting a new topic on the subject of 00/N etc - my trouble was rewarded with a barrage of abuse and down right insolence by certain members of the o-f-s. Perhaps in a way is to why some members are relunctant to make any posts.
I am glad to say, that members of the MRF, have todate never given me that treatment of abuse.
It's hardly a surprise that you got abuse if you took the provocative approach you took in the first half of this post. It's a pretty 'superior' statement.

What you have said is very judgemental. Perhaps people are reluctant to make posts because someone like you may come along and deem them unworthy. Why should other people restrict their posts because you don't think they are up to your standards?
If people have something to say they are entitled to say it. It's called social interaction. This is a democracy. We don't all have to answer to your value system.
