    Christmas Train

    Hi Andy Dapol I just wondered if you had any thoughts about the Christmas Train I suggested at Tings ? Hornby have their budget OO set (R1185), and seem to sell out of the annual Christmas Wagon each year .... so why not do something in N ? Then you could sit back like Slade or Michael Buble and just see the money coming in every Christmas .

    Cheers, Dave.

    To save costs, maybe these wagon loads can be resin cast, I'll be happy to help designing some loads.

    Cheers
    The Hornby OO annual Christmas wagon has the same resin cast toy bundle each year, in the same standard 7 plank wagon. They just produce a different colour wagon / text each year.

    hi Andy just seen this post, and just as quick thought how about appealing to younger would be modellers by theming it on "Thomas" as a lot of Preserved railways do combining it with "Santa Specials""

    Hi Dave,
    Definitely something to consider. I will discuss during our next planning meeting.
