Re: NSE days old oak now with steam.

Hagley is preserved, at the Severn Valley Railway, currently awaiting an overhaul in the Engine House at Highley. D1013 is an excellent choice, such a lovely loco and one of my favorite preserved 52's. +1 I agree with Kenny Ranger is a great loco and as you have Fusilier they would make a great par...

Re: Hornby Class 50/1 No. 50149 Defiance

The most common problem with those marker lights is the contacts under the cab interior not connecting properly. The fix is to remove the body, which just unclips and lifts off, AFTER FIRST PULLING THE ETH JUMPER CABLES FROM THE CAB FRONTS - sorry for shouting but failure to do that step will resul...

Re: Hornby Class 50/1 No. 50149 Defiance

My mate has just purchased one of these, as he hasn't got a layout I have just track tested it. One question, are the marker lights above the cab supposed to illuminate ? I know they do on the newer models. Congrats to your mate for purchasing Defiance, how much did he pay? Yes the two high eyes sh...

Re: QBR (Quarry Bank Railway) ~ Quarry Bank 00

No offense but there is no similarity they are both totally different a Deltic looks nothing like a 40 or a 37. Look at them in close up :lol:

Mod Edit: You are starting to get up the noses of quite a few members AGAIN, sort yourself out or move on

Re: QBR (Quarry Bank Railway) ~ Quarry Bank 00

Finally caught up on this one. Blimey there were a lot of posts since I last looked! Tip... put the cab doors on and it does wonders for hiding the gaps between tender and loco.

Re: NSE days old oak its future in doubt

Nice snowplough.
What about 50035,? she rarely appears?
How come you get all theese locos free? :shock:
So if you have to reduce fleet what 50's would go? and what would stay?
