Re: Seaton Junction

My apologies to "The Chief" I haven't had time to check in on the forum, had a few family problems to deal with. No, unfortunately the brass nameplates I used were designed to glue over the top of the flat printed hornby one. They come as a kit, you get the etched brass pre painted namepla...

Triang Class 101 DMU

Hi folks. My Father has offered me one of the above,in BR Green. I thought it would make a nice project to revamp and add detail. What are my options if i want to replace the rather coarse wheels with a modern replacement, In particular the wheels on the motor bogie, as they are very coarse, and hav...

Re: Class 9F and Bends

The Hornby loco drive 9f, is basically a modified version of the old tender drive model from years ago.

It will negotiate curves of a tight radius, due to the large amount of side play in the driving wheels.

Re: Seaton Junction

Thank you for the positive comments, appreciate it :) I have took more video clips with different loco's, but some didn't work out too well. Still a lot to do, scenery is far from finished, there is the branch line section to start on, the main station needs more details such as signs, benches and l...

Re: Catrine, Ayrshire

Try this site, there are loads of track plans, you might be able to adapt some of them to suit your space. Without knowing exactly what you want from your layout, it is difficult to give any more guidance.

Here is the link to the track plan website:

Re: B1 class 61190 spare axle centres

The glueing attempt proved to be a waste of time, the leading driving wheel stub axle has split on both sides, plus 2 spoked wheel centers have popped out. Annoying, really, when you think that I have a Hornby Rebuilt MN model which was introduced only a couple of years after this, and it is perfect...

Re: B1 class 61190 spare axle centres

Appreciate the advice, my father wants me to attempt glueing the axle and wheel centre back together, if that fails,then it could be a new loco.

Re: help

nguage or oo whats best space available 81 inch by 80 many thanks I agree with "Emettman" you need to decide exactly what you want from your layout. What interests you? Is it a branch line environment, with a small terminus station? Or is it a main line set up with long trains and a large...

Re: OO Loft Layout - First timer advice

What size is the usable area, the op never actually said? The attached picture diagram doesn't work. Less is more, with a main line setup, go for the largest radius curves you can accommodate, it just doesn't look right if a main line express runs along a straight wall, then suddenly gets thrown int...

B1 class 61190 spare axle centres

I bought this model for my father, in 1998, the model was run initially, but when my father moved house, the loco was boxed up, and that was that. Recently my father decided to take the model out of its box, only to find that the plastic axle centres have cracked, and the wheels won't stay attached....
