Thin wire, please help.

I'm looking for a supplier of thin covered electrical wire, the same as fitted to Hornby standard decoders. I have had some from DCC supplies in the past but it seems very expensive buying it by the metre and I need to find a cheaper source. I would like to buy in 100m reels or 10m lengths. Can anyo...

Re: EBay shenanigans

It's a case of knowing what you can afford, your spending limit on an item and picking a good seller. People often forget that there may be 14 other people after that must have 99p loco and bidding can be fierce.

Re: Toy Story 3

The set will probably end up being a rare collectors item as most will be used for providing a spare loco chassis and useful bits.

Re: Toy Story 3

The toy story loco is useful however for the motorised chassis and perhaps butchery to turn it into a half decent american 4-4-0.

Re: Toy Story 3

Airfix did two 4-4-0's, number 119 and "Jupiter". Hornby just got it so wrong with the toy story loco, no tender, piston rods, and no interchangeable or standard coupling being the most glaring faults.

Re: Triang 'Blue Pullman' type 251

The old drive units are very good but have to be in first rate fettle. I've just bought a 3 car unit off a forum member so will do a restoration article on the model as soon it arrives so you can see how good they can be. I've even found boxes for it so may do a box restore for all to see.

Great layout wish we had the space but the house is up for sale at the moment. Outdoor layouts do require a lot of maintenance alas but they are well worth the effort.

Re: Cheap light signals

The terminal block method is a good inexpensive idea. Full marks, I have used it in the past myself.
