Signature: Tomorrow will be a good day - Capt. Tom Moore

Bio: Have had an interest in trains since getting my first Hornby set in 1951. Train-spotted on the eastern region out of Kings X from 1958-1964. Then commuting into Waterloo from 1964-2009 - I became a Southern fan. I also have a passion for Ferrari road cars and Spitfire aircraft. Now retired, and appear to be a collector of locomotives, however over the last eighteen months the spare room (10x7) became available and now has and end-to-end layout around three sides of the room. It is based on a SR country terminus (WYKEHAM) - two main lines running into a fiddle yard and a branch line running station to station. All stock is BR/SR and the collection is increasing in size all the time!.

Sorry, distracted by the Womens World Cup - England v France - do they swap shirts at the end?

Yes Jacob, mine did, as I expect they all have. Again you would have thought it would have been boxed as a normal model, and not a Railroad one, having said that the outer sleeve was good.

I've just watched the video again, and unless it has been doctored in some way the nameplates are different. If you want to watch the video is is called "Saturday 12 March 2011 70013 Oliver Cromwell" posted by 447CDH with about 602viewings. It not worth

loosing sleep over, but I'm sure the plates are different colours.

Hi Vespa

As I said to PP, there is a video on Youtube taken in March 2011, which starts with a couple of coloured stills taken from both sides of the loco showing the nameplate, one is red, no doubt, but even allowing for sunlight etc., I would

say the otherside is black. So if there were two different coloured nameplates, which I'm sure there are not, it would be a very recent development.

Thanks Vespa, your reply prompted me to go and have another look, and yes they were in a small bag on the floor where I had opened the box - silly me!

On holiday, I thought you had just come back from a week in the US. You mean you get more than a week? By the way Florida in May about 85degrees so not as hot as the Grand Canyon.

Hi Vespa and Jacob,

When you received your locos, where were the nameplates, I have physically taken the loco and tender out of the box and nothing there. The brake rods and lights were in a small bag underneath the foam packing, and they didn't

appear to be in DCC sleeve packet. I'm not to concerned, but just asked in case they were hidden away somewhere.
