Re: Hornby in the news today

I am also of the thinking that we as modellers are maybe partly to blame in how the hobby is portrayed and the lack of younger modellers. Recently I have just been to an exhibition, I won't say where as this would be unfair to all those who have put lots of effort into the show, but I did notice a c...

Re: City of Nottingham

Hi, It should fit fine if they were both tender driven older versions. You might need to change the tender top as well from an LMS version to a BR version depending on what number Nottingham is running.

Cheers Stu

Re: random hints and tips post

To get stickers off of boxes etc. Don't just pull them off, heat them with a hair dryer first until the glue softens. They will then peel off with ease.

When you get to the part on ebay where you put your description, write all your text up to where you want your pictures. Open a second internet tab and findr you pictures on Photobucket. S...

Re: Hornby Triang 0-4-0 Axle/Wheel swap?

With a little bit of cutting of the chassis, the smokey joe chassis will clip into the Nellie Body. I have done mine and kept the outside cylinders, this then makes them look a bit more like the old Southern C14 class, if you squint a bit!

Re: Triang 3F Jumping On Points.

I have had the same problem with my Triang 3Fs. I bought some newer Hornby chassis from ebay with newer wheels sets and swapped the flanged driving wheels leaving the original flangless center wheels on the old chassis. This meant that quartering wasn't a problem. I have done all three of mine and I...

Re: Cutting Hornby Point Motor Extender Rods

I know this is not of much help but it is related. I use a heavy duty spring loaded cutter, these do cut anything, but onto the point motor pins. I was cutting one of mine and twitched slightly as I was cutting. This led to the bar dropping through the point motor and away under my railway and rolle...

Re: Is Railroad an appropriate name for the Budget Range

I think its a shame that Hornby no longer have the Triang name, because a three tier grouping of model could have been called:

Starter - Triang
Standard - Triang-Hornby
Premium - Hornby

Re: 1966 Tri-ang 3F Found in Reading.

I have three of these in various guises, one of them was converted to a Souther Railways Q Class, not acurate but good enough for me. I have re-wheeled all the flanged wheels with newer hornby wheels, mainley from old Jinty chassis picked up cheap from ebay. Now with new wheels they all run great on...

Re: NRM 9F Owners Club.

I have two Railwroad 9Fs and think that they have to be the best locos in the Railroad range. Until last year I had never seen a 9F running, only Evening Star at the NRM in York. But now they have a 9F on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, carrying the name **** of the North I have seen her running ...

Re: Oh, how things have improved in RTR

I do think that having electric motors that you cannot change the carbon brushes is a very poor manufacturing issue. These are friction parts and they do wear! Can you imagine if your cars brakes and clutch were all built in and you couldn’t replace them with out having to change the engine? Are the...
