Re: Problems with fitting electrical pickups on coach wheels

I have Tri-ang-Hornby equiped Mk1's K9-70 and know where there are more, must be very rare. Triang Hornby introduced only the Mk2's with lights between 1968 to 1972 in two batches with different running numbers. 1968 & 69 R722 M5032 TSO R723 M14031 BFK 1970 to 72 R722 M5120 TSO R723 M14052 BFK ...

Re: Problems with fitting electrical pickups on coach wheels

Tri-ang had an inovative pick-up system that would have been ideal for the job. It can be found of lighted MK1's, the coaches came with one wheel on a metal axle made of plastic and the other was metal and a set of metal pickup wipers made contact with the axles to pick-up power. They can still be ...

Re: Class 101

Not from the photos I've seen of them on Hattons site. They still have the same ugly "D" ring coupler fitted on all ex Lima rolling stock. It's unlikely that Hornby would have modified the outer power car couplings by fitting NEM pockets to the bogies and left the inner couplings the same...

Re: Class 101

Check photos of the actual models (shops such as Hattons or Rails put up multiple close-ups). Later releases from Hornby have tended to replace the bulky couplings with NEM pockets and smaller couplings ON THE MOTOR COACHES ONLY (sorry for shouting but that part needs emphasis). You would still hav...

Re: Origional Hornby Class 58.

If you don't wish to fit a second motor to your 58, you could always add extra weight in the form of strips of lead to the inside the body to aid grip.

I've done this to several Hornby 47's and it improved the traction by 100%.

Re: Origional Hornby Class 58.

First issue/original issue of Hornby class 58 was R332 in 1982 running number 58007, the loco had the running number on all cabsides, the second issue model had the same running number but with Railfreight on two cabsides. I wonder how Hornby got that wrong? or did Railfreight decide to add the Rai...

Re: Hornby A4

I've bought stuff stuff from Hobby Shop Express before with no problems. They are actually Clifford James and commission their own Ltd editions. Beware though, it's not a DCC Select controller. It's the new cheapo analogue trainset controller that just looks a bit similar. Not according to the Ebay...

Re: Baby Deltic / class 23

Whatever, it is a very pretty diesel class, looking like a miniature class 40, and likely to be popular despite its' rather limited sphere of operation. You can run it alongside the Gresley and Peppercorn pacifics you see. Little known fact about the Baby Deltic, it was the first UK diesel class to...
