Re: wine bottle corks

Cut in half I use them to clean track rather than a rubber.

Class 52 western diesel nos,nameplates

I am currently doing up some old Hornby westerns which involves renumbering etc. So can anybody tell me if the maroon plates were first or the black plates or did it vary from loco to loco. I am modelling early sixties when I used to see these on the Cambrian Coast express as they displaced the king...

Rapido/Model rail 16XX 0-6-0PT sound decoders

These models come with a Next-18 decoder fitting and a sugar cube speaker already in the coal bunker.
Is anybody aware of a firm doing/developing sound for this class?
TIA

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
