Re: Removing the body on Bachmann 32-353 no. 80135

Thanks for the suggestions. I removed 5 screws +speedometer screw and the body comes down and away from the chassis. However one part of the pipework is stuck to the body.I haven't cut this because there is now enough room to get the blanking plate out and an 8 pin direct decoder in. Can't be doing ...

Re: Modelmates brick joint filler

The Expo site does not allow you to put a bottle in your cart giving a general script error.
The Ebay site is pricey at £12.00 when it formerly retailed at about £7/£8.
Have emailed the Ebay guy to see if it is in stock.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: Redcar Central Station

For old maps and especially high detail OS maps I use

https://maps.nls.uk/os/25inch-england-and-wales/

these are zoomable then printable and for a fee you can download a zoomable jpeg version to look at on your laptop/desktop etc.

Hornby Hymek class 35 R074/R7678

I have been resurrecting one of these with a green body.
Unfortunately one of the moulded horns at one cab end has been broken off.
Does anybody know if suitable diesel horns are availble as replacements plastic/castings.

With Hornby models there is an R number whichis useful as an identifier. This means we should be able to tell you wher...

Hornby Castle TTS chip

I bought 3 of these and retrofitted into 2 Hornby castles no problems. I then tried fitting a third into an older Hornby Dapol castle- Winchester castle to be precise. With the 8 pin plug attached I found there was insufficient room in the tender so I cut off the plug and soldered extension leads to...
