Re: New Model Shop in Peterborough

A friend asked you about a Tri-ang EM2 and were told that the loco had an X.04 motor in it, a very basic mistake for anyone in the model railway game would you not admit? The model is common enough, I can probably find a spare service sheet if you want one to gen up with T4U. Anyway enough bickering...

Re: Bachmann Class 46

The 44's, 45's and 46's are sadly missed. Lovely class of diseasel. an example did service on the Peterborough flyash service in the 1980's and could be regularly seen at Peterborough North station.

Re: New Model Shop in Peterborough

Will keep looking Ian, going to build a small fleet of 50's, getting rid loads of 47's and 91's at present to balance funds and fund the 50 project.

Re: New Model Shop in Peterborough

Looks a nice place Dave. Interestingly looking at the live steam stuff reminds me of a major toy and train auction at Bourne, Lincolnshire on the 16th of this month, there is a nice mint boxed live steam BR livery A4 going there for peanuts along with a pile of modern Hornby stuff too. Might be wort...

Re: New Model Shop in Peterborough

Hi Ian I'm looking for a nice BR Blue pre tops example hopefully without the ciricuit board fault of some of the early ones. It needs to be mint boxed in a mintish box with all the bits present. Sadly EBay seems to have gone class 50 crazy at present and prices are silly for secondhand examples, so ...

Re: kangaroo syndrome...

Just looking at the service sheet for the R1 motor Hornby-Dublo service sheet 1, it could be a dry or worn rear motor bearing in the bearing plate part number 17883, the front bearing assembly is adjustable part number 17934 but I wouldn't recommend dismantling the motor, most likely it will be a dr...

Re: New Model Shop in Peterborough

Ahem! Just said I won't be bothering to go to the T4U open days for personal reasons, Terrier, I personally wouldn't give them the time of day. Totally up to me where I spend my cash of course, as I'm sure you appreciate old buddy. Yes indeed Modelzone is a growing concern, the store in Peterborough...

Re: Hornby Class 56 mystery

I agree, it looks like a hybrid has been made by someone. Very unlikely the old Mainline name would be left on the chassis however stranger things have happened, the first China made re-release of the SR utility van still had the Tri-ang brand on the chassis!

Re: New Model Shop in Peterborough

Sounds like it's not worth going to the opening by the sound of it. Would have thought a Modelzone superstore would have had opening offers. Looking for a second class 50 at the moment for my collection but they are going for silly money on fleabay at present and no one in the trade I know has one i...

Re: What should Hornby make next?

Sadly that 1950's and 60's spirit of inovation seems long gone at Margate
