Re: Bachmann B1 'Mayflower'

That’s a good question, and I’ll be honest, I don’t know! It’s a so called ‘limited edition’, though it was limited to 2000, and came in a nice wooden box. How can I tell if it is the split chassis? I can’t see any sign of any splits along the bottom. I’ve got some photos of that’ll help. At a glan...

Re: R2768 parcels van

Bigmet, Sorry, completely wrong! You're thinking way too modern. This is little more than a re-motored Lima model. Step one; remove the two mid sized cross headed screws underneath. These are between the bogie and middle section of the chassis. Step two; remove the buffers carefully from the model. ...

Re: Bachmann no longer list Hattons as a stockist

Well, they won't be supplying the Peco shop nor Gaugemaster any more then!

What a dim-witted clause! Whoever wrote it has utterly zero business sense.

Re: Industries along branch lines?

What about something really out of the ordinary like a tweed mill?

There was one that had a siding but it was a long way from Scotland....

Re: Big Delivery

Looks like Hattons given what looks like one of their catalogues still in the bubble wrap....

Overpacking doesn't hurt but that is overkill. My experience of RM includes a parcel with a vehicle tyre mark on it......

Re: Theft at GC Model Event

One of the old tricks used at some shows was for the thief or thieves to hide somewhere and wait for everyone to have left before going through the "list" of high value things they had seen through the day before retiring to their hiding place and waiting for the public to come in and leav...

Re: 14XX axle box/springs

Hi 61xx,

Try Wizard models. They do chassis etches for the 14xx so might have the parts you need.

Re: Problem with Mainline Patriot

Hi Raymondo,

Try putting power to the chassis half's directly. If it still doesn't respond that means one or both terminals of the motor aren't making electrical contact with the chassis. If it does respond the problem is between the axles and chassis.

Hope this helps.

Re: Preserving 'lost causes'?

There is nothing that can't be fixed it's just how much of it you have to replace. Anyone who has restored something will know it can take years to track down the right parts. It took me nearly ten years of looking to find a rear mudguard for one of my bikes (one year only part)....might be "on...

Corporal punishment needs to be brought back URGENTLY. The law as it is is a joke and is nothing remotely like a real punishment.

Re: Kernow D600 Warship

Just as a mad thought; could it be the motor bearings? I've had new motors run OK but get hot. Lubricating the bearings made them not only run better but not get hot.

Naturally check the instructions first, it could damage the motor!
