Default Hornby new class 800 my initial reaction

Hello, I received yesterday the 800 and thought I would post a few comments.
Detail fabulous, runs superb BUT it does not like anything under 4th radius curve, also the couplings are very ridged and if your track is not perfect it will twist the coach and derail. If anyone needs any further info just ask, Bill.☺
