Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Hi E2E,

Not sure if it helps, but, I once cut up a Hornby tunnel entrance to fit a gap. I used a razor saw. Cut it quite well. I know what you are cutting may not be easy to get at, but it can be cut. I guess a dremel or similar may work.

Thanks
Dan

Re: Hornby TEA 100t tanker - bogie question

Hi Don't apologise, no need to. I have changed my rake of Hornby TEA's to metal wheels now. And apart from seeming to be loose, that one runs quite well. Don't quite know how. I will keep the other options on the back burner. Thank you for replying Mountain. These posts don't go anywhere. I always u...

Trainspotters app?

Hi everyone Is there such thing as a trainspotters app? It doesn't have to be an app. Maybe a website that lists operations for each line. So if I pull up to some tracks and park up I'll know if it's worth hanging around or not. I travel around a lot and try and have lunch breaks etc near railway li...

Hi everyone,

I'm excited that the tour is underway. Can't wait for the van's visit to Midville Junction.

Are you posting progress, pictures etc on this thread from now on? Or will there be another to look out for?

Re: Servo operated with DCC decoder

Thanks for the reply Alan, but I was after something that operated a servo from a train decoder. So I can operate carriage doors. Needs to be mobile.

Appreciate you taking the time to reply, and everyone else too

Hornby HST light lense upgrade

Hi everyone, I am running a new HST chassis with an old lima GNER body. All works well. I wondered if there was a light lense upgrade? The Lima gner body has the older style rectangular lenses where as the prototype gner had twin round (ish) lights. I realise the lense pops out, I hope there is some...

Servo operated with DCC decoder

Hi everyone, I just wondered if it was possible to operate a servo with a DCC locomotive decoder? I have an idea for a little project and it would make it a little easier if I could run it from the loco or an extra decoder in a carriage Thanks Dan Mod Note: Topic moved to the DCC area of the forum.

Hornby TEA 100t tanker - bogie question

Hi everyone,

I have some of the above tankers but recently bought one from eBay that has had its bogies hacked about. The wheel sets don't fit properly and are a very loose fit.

Is there a replacement bogie available or is it a common bogie I could acquire off something else?

Thanks
Dan
