Re: Hornby Maunsell coaches.

I have a couple of Hornby coaches, 1 Pullman 1 dark green which both have screws which go from the underframe through plastic pillars to the roof. I unscrewed them but could not separate the coach body. Any ideas on these?

Re: electrics quandry

I have 3 pcb's with switches on the top and the power cable entering from the front. As they cost about £18 each I am lathe to ditch them. a small box with a hinged lid to hide them would be ideal as they are powered by a 1 amp 12v dc transformer then linked together to act electrically as one long ...
