Re: Hornby Thomas 70th Anniversary

AFAIK, the model they make is his "new shape"(a black five I think).
It would be nice, as I got my lad a good proportion of the range (Edward was the other one of the original Eight Famous I didn't get).

Re: Items you Regret Selling.....

My Dad bought eight of mine. Loads of my A4s (SNG & Mallard in garter blue: UoSA, Bittern, Canada & Eisenhower in green) plus Green Arrow & Tornado (both Bachmann) at £100 each. All are DCC so he'll use them with his EZ controller. He said he'd rather have them off me than buy from a str...

Re: Hornby Thomas 70th Anniversary

Just wondering how many extra Henry models might need to be produced to satisfy demand?
Im one of a few who didn't get the character & suspect he'll be a popular model.

Re: Items you Regret Selling.....

I had a think about this & had a massive clearout last year. Certainly I do regret selling one or two items in hindsight now. My NRM Midland 1000, a Lion, lovely black five, my Bachmann 37250 & ViTrains DRS class 37, Bachmann 3Fs (both the tank & tender ones) & a GWR Pannier.However,...

Re: Hornby A4 "Kingfisher"

Given that I know Kingfisher was one of only four to have the "experimental" blue/ultramarine, can anyone answer this (please)? Ive had a look on Modelmaster & Fox & wondering which decals would I require to completely repaint a tender? Im not sure what transfers I need for the red...

Re: Hornby vs Bachmann A4

For this particular class, I'd always choose a Hornby over the Bachmann.

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

Probably shoodunt ridiqueuel his spelling, but punctuation is no better. It actually gets to a point where you have to adjust the brain to read it. The seller has found a few railway bits, knows nothing & has done no research at all. Furthermore, they think "Hornby? This must be worth a bom...

Re: Hornby Railroad

Certainly David, you hit on a positive point about RR. My dad has found the range a godsend. He too is concerned about fine physical detailing a chore if he breaks a bit off a loco & it ends up being "eaten" by a vacuum. The latest acquisition, his COTN P2 TTS model, is nicely decorate...

Re: Loco nameplates

MM used to sell individual bits on Ebay, but now you can only get full "loco packs" now. Frustrating that I only need a pair of A4 BR number transfers to do 60024 Kingfisher. Fox sent me etched plates, but no cabside numbers. Having to paint a '4' to match has been a headache, so I'll do a...

Re: Hornby P2 #2001 "C0ck of the North"

Magnificent! I think my Dad is considering getting a TTS release sometime. Whilst not cheap, he wants just one sound-enabled steam loco & loves this. Part of the reason is how easy he found putting a Mikado arranged loco as opposed to a Pacific on a piece of track. Same thing applies to a 9F, as...

Re: Hornby A3 tender drive to loco drive

I did slightly "modify" my A1 (its a loco-drive BTW, GWRfan). Added a bit more to the dome to shape it like a bangocase, but still needs the two square blocks one either side of the chimney/smokebox. Once they're on, it should resemble an A3 to my basic tastes. I ended up with an A1 by cha...

Re: Hornby A3 tender drive to loco drive

Going back to the beginning here...... I have a standard A1 Flying Scotsman 4472 from the RR range made a few years ago. Its the R2675A model & Im wondering how I could fit another "better detailed" body & tender over the chassis (?) Ideally looking for the "banjo case" d...

Re: Hornby A4 "Kingfisher"

I think I found it courtesy of my Dave Clark Locomotives in Detail book.
Should be between the front two driving wheels.
Pretty sure none of mine have them (maybe 2509 Silverlink), cos they're all Railroad or Bachmann.
Thanks for the info, GWRfan
