Great little loco good detailing and both run a treat
For 115 Dcc fitted it also has firebox flicker factory fitted

The DCC fitted example I have reads back as having a Gaugemaster decoder in it and as the only Gaugemaster 6 pin decoder DCC23 is 10.6mm long the instruction manual appears to be wrong in specifying a max size of 10mm

0.6 of a mm is minute. I would imagine most decoders vary by that much

But if it is already fitted it isn't an issue is it?

I am just waiting my second one of these from Hattons, they sent one wrong one, I am having Caen and Normandy as well. Perfect for my Southampton Docks which is under construction and is my first effort.
Any suggestions on best way for inset rails for trains and dock side crane please?
