The Smithy Road sale has been on for a while now and been discussed before and I did finally order a couple of items a while back and put them straight into storage.

The above mentioned horse box was ordered as I want some stock from the 'other' railway companies on the layout, as in real life and got the LMS van brand spanking new for a modest 8 or £9. Anyway, I just opened it and it really is a little gem. Fully modelled brake and other underframe detail (well pretty much), metal buffers and separate wire grab and handrails.

I'm now looking at Hornby in a new light, as this and the little Pecket I picked up recently are fine models indeed and represent excellent value for money.

Long may it continue and hats off to Hattons.

Bill

I'm pleased Hornby seem to be "on the mend" Bill - let's hope it continues and is not "too little, too late".

I've always liked their premium coaches but considered their commercial rolling stock to be a little "toy-like" with brash colours and thick plastic mouldings.

I also wonder what's happened between Hattons and Bachmann.  I haven't read anything regarding an upset but note that their regular lists no longer contain any of Bachmann's "new releases"- just Hornby and Heljan plus, of course, Hattons "in house" offerings.  On the other hand, maybe there aren't any !!  :roll:

 Perhaps I should re-visit Hornby ....................... :hmm

Rumour has it that Bachmann have stopped supplying Hattons because they deemed them to be in breach of their T&Cs

The stoppage ocurred just after the start of "The sale of the century" but also after they started selling their exclusive models to other retailers

According to Andy Y on RMweb both sides are talking in an attempt to resolve the issue.....but that was some weeks ago. The topic remains locked on RMWeb
