Re: Heljan Class 14 today, the 2018 bach.

Hi Guys, Don't bother to reply to my question. I've just test run the model up and down my 3 foot test track, It's awful, so it's going back for a refund and I'll not buy another. Running backwards, it's actually quite good, running forwards thought is a different matter! it waggles all over the pla...

Heljan Class 14 today, the 2018 bach.

Hi Guys, I've had my new Heljan Class 14 today, this is the 2018 bach. Can anybody tell me if this bach is different from the previous batches in the way the body comes off and how the decoder is fitted. I've been told that the body was a real pig to get off and lots of parts can get broken. This do...

Re: Zimo MX600 CV8-8

The Zimo CV list is VERY hard to understand and REALLY should be rewritten in proper English so the UK market can fully understand it. This is why I wanted to double check here before I did something silly. As I understand it, Digitrains are the sole importer of Zimo, so maybe they could spend half ...

Zimo MX600 CV8-8

Hi Guys, I've done a bit of hunting and Googling, but can't find anything 'hard and fast'. If I set a Zimo MX600 CV8-8, this will do no harm to the decoder and will simply put the settings back to where they were when I took delivery of the decoder from new? I'm asking as I need to give one of my MX...

Re: LMS Pug 11234

I ordered two plates.
I was totally confused about numbers so went with 1342 !!
It's my railway and there seems to be no clear answer to what this loco would have had if it were real now.

Re: LMS Pug 11234

1396 seemed to exist https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornwall_Minerals_Railway#/media/File:GWR_Cornwall_Minerals_Railway_1396.jpg So did the other numbers 1393-1399 ?? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornwall_Minerals_Railway I'm confused. I guess it's going to have to be a case of 'It's my railway' :D

Re: LMS Pug 11234

I look with caution here, but reading through seems to say that an engine coming to the GWR from outside could/would have been given a number that was 'spare'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GWR_locomotive_numbering_and_classification 1338-1343 seems to be the range I'm working with and 1338 and 1340...

Re: LMS Pug 11234

1340 Trojan seems close to the Pug, if you've had one too many down the pub! The 13xx number also seems to have been allocated to a few other loco designs as well? Could my Pug in GWR carry 13?? I have no idea how the numbering system works. I would however like my Pug to be in the same vein as Troj...

Re: LMS Pug 11234

I watched the whole video, I didn't see a pug.
Just saw a few 0-4-0 saddle tanks, seem bigger than the Hornby pug.

Re: LMS Pug 11234

You are an absolute star, thank you :-)

I will watch with great interest.

So it would seem I can actually do what I want and be more or less prototypically correct :D

Thank you .

LMS Pug 11234

Hi Guys, I have a Hornby LMS Pug 11232 in perfect condition and I just bought a 'High Level' chassis kit and Mashima motor for it. While converting the chassis, I thought it would be nice to repaint the body into GWR green and maybe fit 'standard' buffers? If the GWR had or would have had this engin...

Re: Dapol OO Gauge GWR Large Prairie & GWR Mogul.

Ahh well, I have a really nice Hornby 61xx with 60:1, Mashima, and flywheel. The old model is actually quite nice, so time matters not. My pre-order is with Hattons, so I've spent nothing thus far, just forget about it and one day it will arrive :)
