Re: New Heritage Layout - Advice Welcomed

Geoff, It is a king size bed and the layout is 1821mm x 1350mm and sits perfectly, so big enough for oo. I was thinking 2 dc controllers split by the isolator by the bottom point. Incidentally, I have laid the upper station already which is working, which will sit 90 mm above a 1350mm x 607mm board ...

New Heritage Layout - Advice Welcomed

Hi, I am returning to modelling after some 40 years. I only have a spare double bed to build a demountable layout, so a bit stuck for space. Originally I wanted a double loop with the outer going to a top level station LMS/LNER and the inner being a LMS branch line, linking somewhere. However the gr...

Re: motorising old hornby curved points?

Bigmet,

Thanks for the advice, I have a fair deal of new Hornby track so I will just replace any steel track with nickel silver.

Time for some ebay selling!

The point motors are much smaller as well so that will also help.

Re: Motorising an old hornby curved point

Perhaps I should be more specific, the points are R640 points, that used the old Triang point motor (the ones I used to use when I was 12!)
Would it be possible to use the Hornby R8014 and R8015 motor and housing to do the job?

motorising old hornby curved points?

Hi I am coming back to modelling after some 40 years, so very confused! I bought some older (so I found) curved points which have the boxed up/down movement to switch the point. Can you still use any of the standard modern Hornby point motors for these older points? Just to add insult to injury, one...

Best way to join tracks on demountable layout

Hi,

I am returning to modelling after some 40 odd years, I am intending that my new layout will be demountable for storage. which means up to 7 sections of track will have to split where the two halves meet.

Is there a simple way to do this?

Thanks

Hornby Mallard maintenance

Hi, I am returning to modelling after 40 odd years, everything I had was Triang, so I have a steep learning curve! To start me off I have acquired, amongst other things, an un used C2000 release Hornby Mallard Pullman set. The loco is still wrapped so it must have been lying on it's side for 13 year...

Mainline 4-6-0 maintenance

Hi

I am returning to modelling after 40 odd years, everything I had was Triang then, haven't things changed....

I have acquired a Mainline 4-6-0 Jubilee class loco which runs but slowly. Any advice on what maintenance I can safely carry out to try and improve running?

Thanks in advance

Hi, I am returning to modelling after 40 odd years - all Triang then. Haven't things changed. I am going to need a lot of help, especially as I have already acquired a Mainline 4-6-0 LMS Jubilee Class, which is a runner, but slow, a Hornby 0-6-0 LNER J83, a good runner but will need a clean and an u...
