Most people are shocked when they find out how bad I am as an electrician

You will need some patience - the page refresh rate is very slow due no doubt to thousands trying to log on. R-

Several of the items are limited edition so pre-orders will fill up fast by the "Collector" brigade. For example the new Stephenson's Rocket set, fancy one of them myself!

It was a long slog while the servers clanked and groaned but I got there in the end.
Lots of emphasis on limited editions for each decade- unfortunately I didn’t find any of them particularly stimulating.
However, the 2MT and the prototype and rebuilt ‘hush-hush’ W1 May find their way onto the preorder list. RailRoad+ could be interesting in the long term.
Disappointed that I couldn’t see any new TTS decoders though.
I’m not a complete idiot, some pieces are missing. ;)

:shock: That's putting it mildly! Hope none of our members on here think that's the way to solder.

Better start a ‘Faulty 4pin decoder’ thread in anticipation.

For those not wishing to risk this decoder, which was out of stock when I bought my Peckett, it is a simple job to cut the looped wires on the 4 pin blanking plug and solder them to the appropriate pins on a spare 6 pin decoder. These are smaller as well and fit into the spaces on the small industrials very easily.

Hornby site is currently down!

Thankfully nothing for "southern" region modellers (well me!)this year - unless you want M/N Clan Line with gold plated rods etc., - which I don't. Still awaiting six pre-orders from 2019.

It will be intermittent I expect - I've just logged in OK. R-
