Sounds like a good read, although I'm unlikely to purchase immediately having have had my fingers badly burned with previous HMRS publications, such as the BR brake van book, that was quickly discounted to much cheaper price. Can't understand this policy, especially from a trusted society.

Best regards
Philip

Hi Philip,

I must admit that I have taken advantage of the occasional HMRS sale to acquire copies of various books but, at the same time, never understood why they would heavily discount books which are very good and unlikely to be superseded. Sounds like a bean-counter's approach to reducing stocks.

I'm more interested in getting this book now than worrying about potentially saving a few pounds at some point in the future (there are 28 Hornby HAA hoppers at the club waiting to become a Point of Ayr - Fidlers Ferry MGR working).

Cheers,

Richard
