Re: 2021 Releases

Have ordered some 4 / 6 wheel coaches from the Hattons Genesis range in Midland Livery but I see Hornby have already got their version in store, however once again we note Hornby's obsession with the eastern region releasing LNER, NER and BR Crimson with E running numbers firstly.

Re: TTS Tender Buzz

I have at least 9 loco's fitted with TTS, my layout is controlled by Gaugemaster PA2 and Roco z21 and have not experienced any problems with controllers or sounder decoders.

Do you know anyone close by who also has a DCC set up to test your loco's on another layout or a shop or even local club?
