Re: Ivatt 4MT

Yeah a 5 pole screw wound would be ideal. Not a huge fan of these tiny bachmann 3 pole motors, but if I can bushes then I would fit them. Ebay threw a blank so probably not available.

Ivatt 4MT

I've bought a second hand early production 4MT. It was DCC fitted but is now just DC. The motor in it has suffered from a commutator flash over, and although I have cleaned and repaired it the brushes are both now too short to be of any use, Does anybody know if they are available or is the only opt...

Re: Old Ringfield motor servicing

This is what I do to old ringfields. You do need to check that the cast gear sprockets aren't badly worn because the motor block is scrap it they are. I fit a Romford 2mm tophat bearing that have been reamed out to 2.4mm into the plastic end plate of the motor, screwed that to the motor body instead...

Re: Hornby J36

I have one and another I'm waiting for due to it's name being somewhat appropriate for me LOL. Mine is a fantastic runner, and doesn't suffer from light footedness like my J11's do. Obviously not made in the same factory as the A1,2,4 etc are either because it's very well build and hasn't fallen to ...

O Gauge track

Hi Guys,
I'm after a short length of O gauge track with sleepers to either borrow or buy (I'll pay all postage costs) for a quick project.
Thanks

Re: Rails/Heljan BR 18000 Gas Turbine in 4mm/OO

The Yanks successfully used gas turbine locomotives, it was the as mentioned cracking of the previously waste product fuel that killed them as they used a scary amount of the stuff compared to an internal combustion diesel.

Re: Bachmann, no new OO announcements for 2020

I'm wondering if Bachmann cancelled the previous announcement because Hornby announced the same model due out this year, possibly the 2mt, the Thompson disasters or even the APT. The 2mt in particular seems odd that Bachmann didn;t do years ago as they have the LMS Ivatt 2mt which is so close. Misse...

Re: Hornby Steampunk models

Hmmmm. Friends of mine who are still into it reckon Hornby are too late to the party with this, on account of the Steampunk thing having peaked around 4 years ago ... Bit like their toy story stuff, came out years after the last film was made at the time. Bet they are annoyed another film was made ...

Re: Bachmann V2

Bachmann had an EP sample of the new V2 on show at Warley according to visitors, so progress - at last... Bachmanns Europe's production runs have reduced to such a point that they get very low priority for each level though to production now, and this is really showing in how long it's taking from ...

Re: Hornby 2020 Speculation Thread - 100 years of Hornby

I'm always looking at railroad range items that I want and that got me thinking, it'd be nice to see the old terrier in the range in a colourful livery or named lbsc livery (I know, highly unlikely), also the old B12 with chuff chuff tender (still trying to get a BR blue one to replace the one I ha...

Re: 48DS first impressions

Have to say I'm super impressed with mine. I run it without the supplied conflat.. It seems to run without any stuttering even over an insulfrog long crossing. I just don't know how it does it to be honest. I do wish Hornby would give you the option of buying without the match truck for a reduced pr...
