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.

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.

Even with smileys it can be hard to judge a persons motive compared to face to face. Overall this forum is more sedate but I like it that way. That is of course not counting the times Neil's on his testosterone pills.

Well there I was giving meself a right old bollocking when I thought, a kick up the arse might do me good too. That's when I hurt meself falling over

So right Neil. As for the "downright insolence" ....................sounds like a Primary School Teacher to me. We're all entitled to have a say, some of us may not like what someone else says, but that doesn't mean they can't say it, within reason.
