One of my customers today reported a problem with some of the first batch of the Hornby BR red/cream Chinese made super-detailed Gresley coaches.
He claims that the coaches, which have been in careful use on his layout away from sunlight are starting to show signs of the plastic breaking down. Doors on one side of the coaches are starting to 'dimple' whilst the beading on the opposite side is distorting. Both coaches are showing similar signs of plastic failure.
Has anyone else had similar problems?
