  1. Hornby LMS pug £48 on Amazon until you look at it. https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Hornby-R3727-Class-0-4-0ST-11244/dp/B07N89YC8C
  2. Hereford have discovered a load of old tool Hornby diesels they are selling for about £40 http://herefordmodels.com/index.php?main_page=products_new&disp_order=6&page=1
  3. Derails this week is EFE J94s Still mulling over the lurid NCB one. https://www.derails.co.uk/index.php?route=product%2Fsearch&filter_name=J94&fbclid=IwAR2nqVEmrr9gDrS_H8sE55BM-3cMqpH6swoxGh1gbGKg3_1gZu8zHTMu7xc
  4. Plus of course Yellow Pages 'Do you have an R186 signal box?'
  5. There was that episode of The Bill where Reg Hollis inadvertently solved a crime by bunking off work to buy IIRC a blue A4 of some sort.
  6. The Derails offer is for some Bachmann 7Fs at £106 https://www.derails.co.uk/index.php?route=product%2Fsearch&filter_name=7F Class&fbclid=IwAR1VPC5c4lc0-OeQWaXEqLXGrWphbygNgT7BsbMtMBjND4gUDWivLzPKEss
  7. £40 donation out of £75 delivered to your door. No they didn't profit. They got it to your door incredibly quickly too.
  8. Had a play with the £75 Photon Zero. I just printed this with the default settings. Lost Bernie’s foot but quite happy with the results.
  9. My plan was to evaporate it. We keep chickens and have a heater for their drinking water. Basically its a plastic thing that gets slightly warm. You stand their drinker on it and it doesn't freeze. I was thinking of doing something similar with a bucket of resin water.
  10. I ordered some Elegoo water washable resin to see how that works out. If I can avoid having to dispose of loads of ipa that would be handy. I did order the cure & wash at the same time as the printer. While I expect I'll upgrade the printer if I like this 3d printing lark the cure & wash should last a good while.
  11. For a budget 3d printer this has to be worth a look. Resin printer £75 posted. Basic & small but reviews well at its original price. I'd assumed this was coming from China given the PayPal receipt was in Chinese but I ordered it Monday and it's in Bristol now. Need to get some resin ordered for when it arrives. https://www.anycubic.com/collections/3d-printers/products/anycubic-photon-zero There's a cure & wash similarly priced too.
  12. I've been pondering resin printing and came across this Anycubic Photon Zero. I'm aware it has a small build plate and low resolution but it gets decent reviews and for £75 at PayPal's conversion rate it's worth a punt. https://www.anycubic.com/collections/anycubic-photon-3d-printers/products/anycubic-photon-zero The wash & cure machine for the same price is definitely a bargain. https://www.anycubic.com/collections/wash-cure-machine/products/anycubic-washing-curing-machine Shipping is free from China so it might take a while... Edit:
  13. It's a while since I did mine but I think I just replaced the three driving axles with Slaters and they fit the wheels fine. The rest of the wheels, being smaller and not needing quartering were ok with the Hachette ones.
  14. Do concave buffers exist anywhere? I'm struggling to find a reason why they would.
  15. I bought one of the 'refurbished' ones from DCC Supplies. Refurbishment being chucking the troublesome smoke unit in the bin. Along with the lights for some reason. It's a nice loco in this DCC sound only form. I don't know how much lower the price would be if they sold like this but it would save them a few bob in warranty claims.
