Re: Hornby Range 2016

Not meant to sound "sour grapes" in any way, but the offering of an A4 in LNER green is great,
but I really don't like the shade Hornby use, if its the same as on Tornado & the P2.
Bachmann's has always looked nicer & more like that of apple green Ive seen on the B1 & B12.

Re: Hornby r3273 9F Franco Crosti boiler

So, anyone posting a picture of one? I didn't cos I have to limit what I pick up now & FrancoCrosti locos didn't survive into preservation. Its a great model & accurate, but I think that like the Garrett, its just really ugly. Certainly wouldn't want to buy it then go off it at a later stage...

Re: BR standard 4MT mogul (2-6-0) 76xxx

Picking this old thread up, I have just nabbed one of the few remaining moguls on offer at Hattons. Sadly, I offloaded my 76079 so am going to do 76084 on this later version of the model. I gather Horwich painted the real thing a slightly different way but I wont let this put me off. Nice little Jan...

Re: I must stop spending!

Noticed that Hattons were shifting their Bachmann 4MT a bit quick so it forced my hand to just buy one in this last hour. £76 gone like that, but I think it would have been daft to leave any longer.

00 "BRITISH RAILWAYS" 4mm transfers....

Ive had a look around & had trouble finding anyone who produces these. Looking to find a pair in grey to do a tender for an A4 in the infamously short lived ultramarine blue/experimental purple livery. Already have the red/grey lining from Modelmaster, but Jim doesn't extend further with those t...

Re: I must stop spending!

By the end of the week I will have ordered a Black Prince loco pack plus some Early Crest transfers for a Standard 4MT Im going to buy in the future.

Re: Replacing hook(s) on my Railroad 9F

As a replacement, I was considering the Bachmann 36-009 coupling.

Replacing hook(s) on my Railroad 9F

I'm missing the hook on the tender of a Hornby 9F & wondering whether to take them off at both ends.Maybe stick NEMs at both ends & use the Bachmann Mk1 couplings (ex Mainline).
Perhaps just hunt a spare down & replacing might be a better plan?
Its one of those held by a rivet.

Re: More eBay nonsense...........

Even with the greatest of respect to Bachmann & co, anyone would safely say that £375 is way over the odds for a 9F. An identity pack from Modelmaster is only a tenner or so. Find a model with a BR1G tender & you're most of the way there. Depends how super-accurate you want to be. I copped o...

Re: More eBay nonsense...........

That's the one.
To think a mere £10 goes to David Shepherd's wildlife fund.
£375? :shock:
