Re: Hattons Announces 4 and 6 wheel coaches

The price per coach is less then I would have thought, but so many attractive liveries that it's going to be hard to narrow the wish list down to something manageable :lol: The announcement today with such a long lead time sounds like they are 'staking their claim' and trying to scare off others who...

Re: The Great Model Railway Challenge

That is with recording it, I watch it once with the kids so they can see what people do and how you can make a layout look, then I watch again with my wife who sits quietly until I try watching something, then doesn't stop talking. I can't face watching a 3rd time! I fell asleep halfway through the...

Re: Help identifying locos and stock

Thank you all for your replies, it has been an interesting task. After a bit of cleaning and a bit of oil last night both of the locos run with the tender loco lights even still work! I have taken videos for him to keep but he's looking at selling them on, I have directed him to eBay with some rough...

Help identifying locos and stock

Hey guys, I am hoping someone will be able to help, a friends from work has been clearing out his loft and found his train set from when he was younger.

Re: DCC Problems

You can reset a loco decoder usually by CV8 entering a value of 8 this returns the decoder back to its as manufactured setting including address number to 3. However, while most decoders are reset via CV8/8 it is well worth double checking the specific decoders manual as some use a differing reset ...

Re: Wanton Vandalism of layouts

This is such sad news, I really hope they treat this with the seriousness it deserves & don’t just dismiss it as ‘toys’ the amount of time that goes into the layouts is such a large part of the value. With the value of items ‘on site’ I had always assumed they had someone keeping an eye on thing...

Re: Dj models announcement

Wow, i am surprised the IP has been granted but highly doubt it will stop other manufacturers from making a competing scale model of a historical item - DJ cant have rights over the loco design, if anyone would it would be the original designer of the actual prototype (or whatever company owns it no...
