Re: Help Needed, Lima GWR Small Prairie Parts

Im not sure how far you'll get mate but i'd give East Kent Models a try, if they cant supply a lima one they may be able to supply an alternative. Their number is 01227 770777.

Re: Dapol 14xx Limping!

I thought it might be that myself, so i replaced the traction tyres and it still did it. I think you may be right there though, another wheelset may be in order. Later on im going to check and double check nothing is catching anywhere before i take sutch a step though methinks! :)

Re: Hornby 2010 Surprise Announcements !!

...........if they wanted to pep up their marketing and their range they should have done a surprise release of something completely new, a new tooling, like bachmann did with 'Truro', instead of using the same models, just in different versions i think. :roll:

Re: autocoach bogie problem

Hi Stu, You may have checked already but are the coupling hooks bent? or maybe the buffers are interlocking on the curves? they are quite long? Possibly a wheelset not located properly maybe or not turning freely enough?
