Glad this thread surfaced it's a good read. Whilst I have all US stock currently I've recently within the last week started browsing some of the UK market models. After all I run what I want so why not. Haven't fixed on anything yet, need to do some similar research here on what's good and what's not good quality, and then of course there's the coupler challenge again. I do also quite fancy one of the new Kato Unitrams. I'll have to post some pictures when I take the plunge.
