Re: BARGAINS!

Whats a Deflector Duchess? When Hornby Dublo made their model of Duchess of Athol in LMS livery it didn't have smoke deflectors. A very small number were later returned to the factory probably after suffering broken buffer beams but there were no Athol bodies left so a BR Duchess of Montrose body, ...

Re: Trouble with 009 loco on Farish Chassis

Run without the body on and see how it behaves. If it is a Poole era Farish chassis check for arcing between the pole pieces of the commutator and that the armature isn't getting hot. Remember also that body is heavier than it was made to carry and may cause problems.

That's fascinating. I like the excavators and the inclined wagons both very rare to see in model form.

Re: 2021 Range

Yet again they fail to deal with three god awful models in the range that NEED TO BE TOOLED PROPERLY;

8F
Black 5
2P

All woefully inadequate in looks, performance and design.

2021 Range

So far only page 1 has worked but it seems they are trying to steal Hattons thunder by releasing four and six wheel coaches. No idea what else is there until their website starts to work!

Oh great, more locos I'd like.

Wonder in the Metrovic will be more reliable than the real thing?

Re: Help for a clueless partner

I advise not buying Lima, they are mostly ancient models with minor mods made by Hornby when they bought them out like better motors in those that they chose to extend the "life" of the model but essentially they're still upwards of forty year old designs and extremely dated by today's sta...

Gaugemaster first time every time. British made with a lifetime warranty. You only get one year with Hornby!

Re: Bachmann tension lock couplings

You want 36-061 which are the shortest they do. Most Hornby models are straight NEM couplings (I've never seen cranked ones) and are an easy swap but beware, some of the newer gen coaches can lock buffers when fitted with the short Bachmann couplers even on 4th radius. If you want cranked couplings ...

Re: RAILS of Sheffield and Hornby

Perhaps it might have something to do with Rails holding back LTD ed models and selling them for inflated prices.....

I can't imagine Hornby being happy about that.

Re: LNER Articulated coach sets

@ Mahoganydog, My understanding of the Cooper Craft problem isn't that he lacks the tooling, but rather a functioning machine in which to use it, and is overly optimistic of getting one. In the meantime we can only hope that if there is any value in the tools he holds there might be a company who w...
