Ah, I understand. So you will build both kits of the R.A.F. Refuelling Set, but make some alterations to them? ike what? Paint them a different colour?

You appear to have bought the Airfix R.A.F. Refuelling Set kit twice. I can see that both boxes have different branding printed on, but both appear to be the same! Did you buy one and forget you bought it, so you bought the other?! Laughing Wink Smile

Cuv65, welcome to the Hornby Forum. Smile

 

The TrakMat is designed to put on the floor with track on top of it, to stop fluff and other muck getting clogged up of the wheels of your locomotives and the motor. You can use the TrakMat on a layout, but I do not have one on mine and I don't recommend this.

 

I also don't have cork underlay glued to the board of my layout. I personally don't feel it's needed.

I didn’t say that that people writing about all products they want separately causes any harm. I agree with these suggestions being posted individually.

Scotsman 20040804, not this year, no. Hornby have released this year's announcements. There might be a mid-year announcement in the Summer, like there was in 2018, but if it will be like anything like last year's, it will be just be a load of building re-releases. Not really something to look forward to.

 

I suggest you contact Hornby and just come your suggest gets considered for the 2020 product range.

I have very little doubt Bachmann Trains will release Arthur, as that range seems to focusing on CGI characters only, these days; Unless Arthur comes back to the TV series, whcih would be very nice.

Thankfully Nia and Rebecca are not joining the Bachmann range, yet! They are too new I think they will at some point. One the only two announcements happy about is Rosie in her red livery and the log flatbed. Unsure how about the other three wagons which are completely made up, which has nothing to do with The Railway Series or TV series.
