How cooperative were Bachmann, did they have the parts you wanted and how long did it take etc? I've contacted them via their website stating whi...

Re: HST Coaches

I was wondering if HST (class 43's) ever ran with mark 4 coaches? Or if it would be possible to? Reason for asking is i would like a GNER HST, but ideally i don't want to buy more coaches. For example i could run my class 91, remove the power car and DVT, replace with Hst, or would it not be very p...

While it was numbered 47 975 it was allocated to Crewe until March 1993, and then Bescot for a brief stint before going back to C...

Re: 47975

From what I've read on various forums, it was a Modelzone limited edition model that was cancelled due to lack of interest.

Fair play to Bachmann for releasing it to the public, though it's not cheap by the time you add the VAT and P&P charges.

Still, I've one on order.

Dip a fine paint brush in light oil and allow it to dribble down between the drive gear and unto the bearing surface. Wipe away excess oil and before refitting the motor to the chassis...
