Re: The Great Model Railway Challenge

I think the two presenters that front the program spoil the show.

Re: Latest on Hornby takeover/buyout

Watching this perennial issue from the USA, I have wondered if it might be "psychological" as it seems the Hornby management never successfully made the transition from years of being a semi-monopoly (if you want OO trains, you buy Hornby) to actually having to compete in innovation &...

Re: Hornby R602 Power clip

Re: Hornby "Royal Duties" Flying Scotsman

As a result of a bargain from Hattons and an eBay 'win' I have two of these locomotives in mint condition. Even though a limited production they do not seem to be in any demand so I thought of detailing one of the locomotives for other than Royal Duty service. Would it be a simple matter of simply ...
