Re: More eBay nonsense...........

Well I am flabbergasted, you can buy this for about £24.99 - £ 29.99, just look at this price. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rare-Hornby-R8508-Skaledale-Hubbards-Hill-Mill/254488943357?hash=item3b40b91afd:g:qHkAAOSwk09eJ3kX I suspect most of these £1000 items are just placeholders - he doesn't actuall...

Re: Noisy class 205

I would simply remove the excess - did that on one of mine and simply used a cotton wool bud to do that. You need to leave a sufficient amount in to keep the gears lubricated. The sound does seem like the gears rattling. Perhaps try using the cotton wool bud to extract the excess and smear it over t...

It's a while since I worked on mine, but I believe you are correct - it is a tight clip-fit.

Re: Noisy class 205

OK, useful answer, almost certainly drag in the gear train that takes the drive from the worm connected directly to the motor shaft, down to the axles in the bogie. (It should coast smoothly and quietly the best part of a metre, if that part of the mechanism is OK.) Now the crunch question: have yo...

Re: Hornby Maunsell coaches.

On the 2-BILs they're clear plastic and part of the glazing. But just looked at a Maunsell coach and they're black so not sure what they're attached to. So have a look yourself - they're fairly obvious - but do proceed with caution!

Re: Hornby Maunsell coaches.

There are 4 tabs at each corner. You need to carefully push these in with a small screwdriver. I've not opened one myself but if they're the same as the 2-BIL coaches then there's a tab in the centre as well. Best to slide a piece of plastic between the coach sides before pushing the tabs in.

Re: Lenz Digital Plus LS150 not accepting programming

Did the Hornby transformer supply DC power rather than AC? According to the manual this can damage it.

You can pick up SH LS150s off Ebay quite cheaply these days - around £25-30 or so.

Re: Dcc decoder plugs

Just slide a thin-bladed screwdriver underneath and gradually prise up. Fingers are fine - they protect the wires - but you risk bending the pins!
