Re: Bachmann Dynamis Pro

I believe you used to be able to, Bachmann now only offer the complete kit and have renamed it the Ultima. I had a look at Hattons but could see one.

I assume it is this you are talking about?

Re: Future of Hornby Mk3 coaches

I will buy the MK3s by Hornby for my HSTs, just need a few more anyway and I am done. As the power cars have a giant tension lock I think I would have problems using them with the small tension lock that OR will provide. For my train pulled MK3s I will be using the ORs which I will then convert to K...

Re: CMX TRACK CLEANER - Anybody got any opinions (Good or Ba

There is a company in the UK that makes a cleaner using a Bachmann brake van. It is a kit (or can have ready made) just supply your own wagon. I cannot for the life of me think who it is though. They also make buffers, lamps, etc.. I'll post if I remember. Found it !! http://www.lanarkshiremodels.co...

Re: Coupling advice and replacements needed

Not sure if this will be of any help. I believe these are a replacement for the airfix couplings.

Re: Fitting Hornby Class 47 tts sound to Bachmann 47

I had ordered a new Bachmann 47 and for some reason forgot to order the chip so I used an 8pin and an adapter. I found out that not all of the functions worked, so be prepared for the TTS to behave the same way. I think for the cost of buying a TTS loco I would spend the extra and get a proper sound...

Re: No Wonder I hate Painting !!

I agree the tinlets take a heck of a lot of stirring to get that sludge broken up. I have since switched to tamiya paints though.

Re: Hornby 75T? crane

Just had a read through of this thread. Most enjoyable. Got me thinking about replacing the wheels on the crane, something which I didn't think could be done but obviously you can. Just a thought about the inner wheels, could they not be replaced with the floating wheel set as found on A4s etc? or p...
