Re: Class 47: Hornby vs Lima ride height

Thanks both, that's helpful. I hadn't realised that these models were so old...is there a site anywhere that lists what models were released when? I think I will let the Hornbys go and look for some other, better 47s to keep along with the Lima. Thanks, Steve Lima Class 47 released in 1990, and the...

Re: Hornby B12

Sounds like your having problems with the Back EMF. Try changing CV10 to the value of 10. That should sort the running problems out.

Re: bachmann warship D832

There appears to be only two screws in the centre of the chassis that holds the body in place.

Re: Hornby Class 110 DMU

There's no need to remove the body to remove both bogies on the Hornby Class 110. Insert a flat blade screwdriver against the tab and the chassis on the inner ends of either bogie and gently prise the tab inwards. The bogie will then come out with ease. There's only a single wire coming from the non...

There's a photo of 37429 LL livery in ex works condition at Barmouth on the Rail Photo Archive site.
But doesn't appear to have the nose aerial.
