Re: co-co derailing

Thanks for the replies. I am not able to relay the track, so as all the other rolling stock navigates the bend with no problem I think I will retire the diesel and stick with steam locos and a couple of dmu/emu's. Bit of a cop-out but heyho !!

Re: Great Electric Train show

Got 3 old coaches for my heritage train. Also saw the Hornby 2019 Christmas wagon for £14.50, a lot less than the adverts on eBay !!
It was a lot less crowded than Ally Pally which made the day pleasant
And I entered the draw for the Hornby Coca-Cola train set
