I am sure the moderators have better things to do than be bothered by a duplicated one line post, hardly War and Peace.

Re: Kaboom! Rail mounted gun from Oxford Rail

Yep, I'll be having one at that very reasonable price and I've got a perfectly sized perspex case for it!

Re: Hornby 2018 Range

Well my first loco of the year purchased this weekend, a Terrier, is going back for exchange as its got a motor which emits a ghastly screeeching sound at anything over 1/3rd power input.Thats while I wait for Hornby to do something about the gripless 14XX I bought at Warley. Ho hum.

I had a reply from Hornby that they are awaiting replacement traction tyres, I presume a little thicker.

Re: Hornby Railroad 14XX

I added a sliver of plastic strip as padding beneath the axle either side glued to the under frame to stop the axle moving up and down.In retrospect the rear axlebox would have been the one to do but I wanted to increase the weight bias forward by dropping the front axle, it's worked but was a lot m...

Re: class T9 chassis rot

It could be that at the factory they have been overtightened causing them to break, it may be worth buying a replacement bracket, they are cheap enough, and seeing if careful fitting does the job.
