Re: RAILS of Sheffield and Hornby

spotted it on Facebook this morning, whatever the reason both of them should have looked after those with preorders better, either by honoring existing orders (but not taking new ones) or giving customers the option to transfer it over to Hornby or something - simply canceling them is likely to leav...

Re: Alex3410 - My Railway

Last weekend I managed to get a chance to pop back into the loft, my little one absolutely loved poking around on the layout and rummaging around in the boxes under it :lol: Seeing how much she enjoyed it I have built a cover for the loft hatch that I can put in place when we are up and feel much sa...

Re: Covid Rip Off or Bargains

you cant trust Amazon prices for anything at the moment, I happened to be watching a few bits and coming back to my wish list daily as I get other bits and bobs. The prices for one item has fluctuated by about £50 in a week! they are quick to tell you when it's cheaper than when you added it to your...

Re: Frustrating track laying

when pinning the track down be careful not to drive the pins in too much as this can distort the track causing issues, particularly on points

learnt that the hard way :lol:


@Bufferstop masking tape is a fantastic idea, will be pinching it next time I get a chance to play in the loft :lol:

Re: Hattons store closure

We have a box by the front door, anything arriving goes in it for 24 hours then gets opened wearing gloves. Thats not a bad idea, we are due something today, my plan was to open it outside with gloves and put box etc right into the bin. There was a chap on the news suggesting people leave food shop...

Re: DCC Assistance

I am half asleep at the moment, so maybe totally missing the point :lol: Do you need to connect it to the internet? my understanding was the wireless router is provided alongside the z21 to enable a wireless connection from your device to the z21 itself, this may just work as a standalone 'offline' ...

Re: Hornby Steampunk models

Maybe they are a little early with their April fools this year? :lol:

don't get me wrong I like the whole steampunk vibe/style but don't really think this is likely to be much of a hit.

Re: New Range announcements

Thanks for the link, much easier to digest then via the Hornby website. What really stood out for me was the tinplate 0 gauge locos, I have the original green clockwork one on the shelf in the living room and love how it looks, would not mind having a red or blue one next to it just not at those pri...
