Re: Hornby Dublo Crane Jacks.

Someone has produced some jacks.... They are possibly 3D Prints, made from some type of resin/ plastic with 'allen key' type socket head screws... Not too bad a price....but look carefully on the listings of the seller, as the same stuff can be offered at different prices or P&P varies! https://...

Re: Ffrwd Locks. OO WR in North Wales (Wrexham) C1952-1953

Hi Geoff. The newer Hornby 0-6-0 chassis with flanged centre drivers, and no traction tyres, has better pick-ups, but they still can require fettling, so that they maintain contact with the wheels as the axles move back and to, especially on curves!

Re: Ffrwd Locks. OO WR in North Wales (Wrexham) C1952-1953

I found it interesting that the "recent" Hornby "Railroad" GWR Class 2721 0-6-0 PT is much better detailed than the original Hornby Railways issue.... The 2 models. The original issue has been re-painted, etc.... http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/uploads/gallery/album_2885/gallery...

Re: Turntable mod

Nice turntable.... I have modified the old Hornby Turntable, using the Dapol (Ex Airfix) GWR type Turntable kit. Funnily enough, those same PECO Girder Bridge Sides can laso be used on the Hornby Turntable....but don't need cutting down in length! ;) Some details here...quite a few posts tell the st...

Re: Sarah's Workshop....

Hi Pete. Thanks.... The family spent some time on the South Coast, near Brighton. I became enamoured with the Terriers, and other locos at the Bluebell Railway (E.G. USA "Tankee" Tanks!), and went there quite a few times.... So, we have a smallish collection of "foreign" stock......

Thanks... I have fitted NEM pockets and NEM Kadee couplings to the Hornby 0-6-0 (Jinty type chassis, also used by other models!) My method centres on the two end screws, that hold the Hornby large tension lock couplings on, and also hold the ends of the "baseplate" to the metal chassis blo...
