Re: Latest Bachmann prototype Deltic

Am I correct to suggest its cheaper than the 2011 release?

Re: BR Class 35.

Quite like the maroon as well (on that thread further down, done on a Triang/Hornby model).

Re: I must stop spending!

Saw a guy selling some nice N gauge stuff at a car boot on Sunday.
Only things were he was just packed up & I had little cash spare.

Re: Hornby Britannia class query

I'm down to just my 70008 "Black Prince" now, along with my Norfolkman train pack.
Donated my dad my former Robin Hood, made up as 70013 Oliver Cromwell.

OO loco bell

Have probably asked before but does anyone know who supplied bells for OO locomotives as spares? I already have one (intended to fit my A4 Dominion of Canada) but would like another to fit the front of a King George V.

OO British Railways transfer

Can anyone suggest a supplier for one of these to fit an A4 tender?
Im after a cream one to use on an experimental purple/ultramarine model.
I managed to find the red/cream lining at Modelmaster but not the writing.

Re: I must stop spending!

My total spent was
£29.99 outstanding balance on a TTS Gadwall A4
£10.99 on some Corgi trackside DIY vehicles.
Ok, whilst not "cured", still a big improvement from my past.

Re: Silver Jubilee

This was precisely why I took a gamble & bought 2509 when it got its initial release & stuff the costs. That A4 dressed up in "Silverlink" Jubilee livery was pretty hard to resist. Impossibly so if an LNER fan I expect. Interestingly, much as I genuinely like the Silver Jubilee li...

Re: Silver Jubilee

Something ever salient in mind in these winter years, is that if I want something specific model rail, I'd best buy it when it releases and is available, as I have noticed an interval of several years before that product or even a like substitute is produced again if I don't. This was precisely why...

Re: I must stop spending!

That ruddy ridiculously low priced 3F early crest at Hattons is massively tempting. I had one a while ago, didn't think Id miss it, but the magnificent detailing for less than a Hornby RR model screams "Buy me: you'll regret it if you dont!" I don't even model anything Mids or LMS but well...

Colour query

My apologies but I couldn't find the topic on the Hornby RR "Falcon" model, but this applies to some other models as well. I looked at my proposed conversion of a LNER 4484 Falcon to 4464 Bittern & came up with a "simple" idea to save a whole lot of stripping down the numeral...
