Re: New HST "Intercity" 125

Yes I have an opinion,

You'll still be hankering for a 125 in the long run. They do look good and offer something very different from the normal Loco hauled stock.

To be fair, that can be said with a lot of repair centres, you take a car in and there is a wait for a part that is required.

Re: The best Class 47 Bechmann ever made?

To me it (the Bachmann) looks odd at the front. I quickly add that I'm no expert. Those light holes on the front index panel thing look too big thus making the front end look wrong.

I expect it has great performance though given Bachmanns track record.

Re: Hornby Class 37 and HST conversion

Have to say Sishades is spot on. I have done the same with the HST..ie re-motored to the 5 pole and extra pick ups on the leading bogie and what a transformation. A TCS decoder later and a great runner. Having said all that, the new HST is the better model but as stated, you need well over 100 pound...

Re: TerryB's new layout

Great layout and great pixs. Thanks. Those older models have so much character don't they?

I had an LMS Jinty with a smoke box which I loved, often think about it. Was destroyed in a flood!!

Re: Hornby Pullman Coaches

Oh Gawd! I've invested in 8 of them but not had a chance to run them. Now I'll have sleepless nights!

They're not cheap and look fantastic, what a shame if they are not fit for purpose.
