Dapol western manufacturer's plate

I have found where the number and name plates go but if anybody could tell me where the manufacturer's plate (in this case Crewe) is fitted to I'd be very obliged.

Re: Stephenson's rocket loco from R3810 pack.

Wires soldered to the underside of the tender.
Just one has come adrift.
You can see the positions when you invert the loco+tender

Stephenson's rocket loco from R3810 pack.

Unfortunately one of the soldered wires to the underside of the chassis has detached. Can anybody with a working rocket post a photo/diagram of where the wires are soldered.
Service sheet HSS 451 does not show this.
Many thanks

Re: Hornby R3805 Black 5 4-6-0 45379 Limited edition

Seems a bit daft to follow up my own post but the answer is yes there is an accessory pack mine was inadvertently left out at the retailer when the loco was tested.

Hornby R3805 Black 5 4-6-0 45379 Limited edition

If anybody has got one for Xmas I would be very grateful if they can say whether their model had an accessory pack attached, i.e. front steps, engine and tender brake rods.
Mine didn't but it has the fittings for the brake rods and the front steps are not on the model.
TIA

Re: Hornby J36 Class R 3622 fitting TTS decoder

I got Kevin Dickerson at Coastal DCC to fit it. AFAIK he lengthened some leads to the tender pickup PCB which were very short. The speaker just fits by itself without either of the plastic surrounds or the 2 screws. Had no reply from Hornby (2 weeks ago) to an email asking for further guidance on fi...

Re: Hornby J36 Class R 3622 fitting TTS decoder

Thanks for pointing this out useful and the tender comes apart easily. However I am mystified by the orientation of the speaker under the tender weight and also there is an additional thin round clip which fits the speaker. 2 screws are provided but there are no locating holes in the tender chassis....

Hornby J36 Class R 3622 fitting TTS decoder

May be early yet but has anybody fitted one of these in the tender ? If so I would be glad of any help. AFAIK no service sheet is available yet on the Hornby site and no fitting instructions are provided with the decoder. Besides the chip and circuit board there is a speaker, a plastic securing ring...
