Old hornby Pullman coach

Postby gromit54 » Sat Jan 15, 2022 4:05 pm

Hi guys,
I've got a set of horny Pullman coaches that are 40 odd years old and the name plates were water transfers.
Now they are not looking too good. Anybody know where I can get some new ones of recommend a replacement?
Tried hornby, they were, shall we say, less than interested

These might work? I haven't used them myself, but there seems to be some positive feedback..

Perhaps you should try Horny Manufactories, instead.

Quite saucy, those old coaches.
Nessie rocks!

Model railway sites so need a s/w spelling patch to autocorrect to 'Hornby'.

As it's your thread title, you can edit it to correct the spelling, click on the 'pen' in the header of the post to edit, click on submit when you are done.

I can only do it for this specific post, because I was not the thread starter.

Hi guys
Just a quick update, I got some replacement nameplates from fox transfers, (thanks for the link nickholiday).
I think they are about 1mm small but look ok from 2 feet away and with my eyesight they look fine.

Thanks for the help
