Well anyway, here's my two pence worth...
As usual I enjoy looking at pre-production samples. The new "R7229 Analogue controller" is something I am looking forward too. I'm pretty much the DC person, mainly because converting my collection to DCC sound will be beyond my budget (unless more TTS decoders are brought out??). And yes if I go DCC I'd rather go all in and have sound.
The "Ruston 48DS" is one of my favourites this year. Really nice to see them. I have a question, do all Ruston 48DS locos have a radiator grille? From the images shown by Hornby, only one seems to have it, the CAD work and the other 3 just show a black plated over* radiator. Ruston experts...can you help?
The"B2 0-6-0ST Peckett" looks stunning.
Well done Hornby!!
Regarding the Coca-Cola train set, I've already shared my views elsewhere, whilst I totally love the idea of it and want one, I just don't like the choice of loco and the smaller wagon, I would've preferred something a little more sensible. I've already shared my suggestions elsewhere.
