I have just bought the best toy train ever.
It's a Hornby R3426 Class Q6 Raven 0-8-0 63429 in BR Black with late crest.

This one has a few major improvements over others I have bought.

1. There are electrical pick-ups on every single wheel, that's four full contact driving wheels on each side of the loco and three wheels on each side of the tender, a total of 14 pick-ups. This means it goes round my layout without complaining about loss of power over the points.

2. The DCC dummy plug is in the tender and has the radio interference capacitors fitted to it instead of them being on the motor. This means that when swapping the dummy plug for a DCC chip there is no need to open the loco to cut off the capacitors when they cause erratic running.

3. All eight driving wheels have flanges and are in contact with the track, giving better grip for pulling my thirty or so wagons, some loco's have dummy wheels that are just for show.
