Re: 2011 KIT BUILD - Dean Single or Achilles class

Prove it :lol:

I have a non runner. I shall follow your thread with interest to see if its worth spending the time and effort to get her back into operational condition.

Re: Siquelmes Work Bench - 94xx project update- ADULT CONTENT!

I have been given a small Hornby Duplo 3-rail set.

A mate has very kindly got the train working but now I need to clean up years of abuse and neglect.

I will try your Dettol bath when the engine is returned to me next month.
