Re: Anyone Seen This......

I'm short of funds as usual so I only picked up the one copy but looking at the photos of the finished layout it's going to be rather disappointing in regards to the rolling stock given away with this set, it seems to be almost all bits of buildings. I do wonder how much the loco will be though when...

Re: Where to start???

Jut keep a look out for bargains online. Ebay can be great at particular times of the day and there are listings that maybe aren't well described and therefore get overlooked. I got 18 Peco points of varying sizes and shape for £20!! True, i'm a newbie too and I've been scanning fleabay for days ju...

Re: Faultfinding / repairing a loco?

Do you have any idea on the age of the motor itself ? - if the loco has been well-used - it may just be the motor - is life-expired - they are supposed to last 100 hours only.. No, I don't know anything about the history of it. Can someone tell me which motor I would need to buy to replace this one...

Re: Faultfinding / repairing a loco?

thanks for the replies :)
I have the loco apart now and unfortunately I cannot see anything obviously wrong, no broken wires or anything but it does look like the moving parts have been lubricated with some sort of thin white grease, is this normal?

Faultfinding / repairing a loco?

How hard is it to do this? I brought a Hornby Barclay BR Class 06 Shunter from ebay a while back and I've only just tested it to find it's dead. A real shame as although its on the cheaper end of the market, I think its rather a cute little engine. Seeing as I am a total novice at this, is there any...

Re: Rivets

wow, I'd bet that you'd need the patience of a saint to get them to stick in exactly the right place.
I could imagine me trying that, I'd end up with fingers looking like a schoolboys pimply face!

Newbie question - dismantling a Class 35 Hymek

I brought a dirt cheap Class 35 Hymek (D7063) off ebay and that's just it, it is a bit dirty, its been in a loft for a while, is there a guide anywhere to dismantling Hornby's and how to clean them (e.g. do I just use soapy water on the shell? what about the running gear?)

Cheers :)

New body on a Hornby 0-4-0?

I'll start off by saying that I'm very, very new to the hobby. I picked up a Hornby 0-4-0 Queen Mary off fleabay and I must admit I was very disappointed with it, not with the seller but the quality of the model. I knew it was in the toy end of the range but its really, really basic! Are there any o...
