Re: New Stephenson Rocket

I very much doubt that it will be taller than a 9F for example. If you have a hunt around there is a picture of L&M Lion buffered up to a 9F and though Lion's funnel was very tall the 9F was taller again.

I cannot see it being a problem getting through tunnels or under bridges.

Re: New Range announcements

BR 2MT is an interesting choice. I wonder how long it will be until a limited edition of 78018 and the film that made her famous will be done?

Re: New Range announcements

The biggest joke in the range is the replica 2710. Sorry but HOW MUCH? Sod that, if I want one I'll be going after an original at a third or so of what they want for this one.

Only one loco there for me in the entire range but only because it started life at Bloxham.

Re: Fading motor...

Thanks everyone for your help with this. I bought a Gaugemaster Combi which seemed to solve the problem. But then, our of the blue, a puff of smoke from the motor and now nothing. Looks like it's burnt out...? Not sure if that's likely with this combination of controller and motor? If it has burnt ...

Don't forget that there are stands up in the sports bar, they get overlooked by most people who go.

Re: An Interesting discovery

My advice is get yourself a digital Vernier and not a micrometer which can have reliability issues. When I was making parts for a project I was chasing 5 microns accuracy; that's 0.05mm for interference fit parts or close. Anything more than this was too tight. I suspect your measuring device is rou...

Re: An odd repackaging ???

Suspect it's actually kit C36 with a different chassis to make it an RCH version.

Re: Westdale, West Lothian

Well been a long time but since the demise of the first layout, lots of mess and ages ferrying in down out the loft and onto the bin, the scenery that is. A new beginning in a garden shed. Hopefully a rather large garden shed. Well I'm planning on a huge garden shed. My first thought was how to ins...

Re: Hornby Dublo - 3 Rail Advice

Hi Kenny, Another three railer here though mine is all packed away. The only weak point as others have said is the magnets. I've only ever had a few that wouldn't go. In the main they refuse to give up and die no matter how abused and believe me I've had some that were very, very abused. Not forgett...
