  1. 1st of August saturday 10am grand opening of Keith's railwayarna. At wansford nene valley railway.come and see wide range of new used.models and railway relics
  2. If any of you where wondering way the model of sng has stainless tread plates.this wos done when it had its roof white for royal train duty when she wos at the nymr a few years ago.a nice touch I think.
  3. 're a4 body removal not as straight 4ward as it may seem .seems to b some what easier if you remove the main threaded bar that hold everything on to centre drive wheel .remove screw that holds speed .remove don't bogie then there is a screw under the bogie and one on cartasie. There are 2 more screws under the back drive wheels remove these as well.take off front coupling. And gently remove you will have to prise the vallance. Over the cylinders. And the body should come away a bit tight mind you.hope this is of help
  4. Interesting point there wos 2 kits of class 89 made back in the 90s one made in Grantham and 1 retailed in Doncaster I made the tooling and prototype model during Hornby hst and lots of plasticard .and 58 chassis. It had rtr rubber mould taken from it cast in resin not to bad .
  5. That ment to say wansford station great to see new shops opening well stocked all sorts of things from name plates to models .frindley staff .who know there stuff. Pre owned models and new to follow. Specialties in railway memrabilia. Lamps to whistles.
  6. Keith's railwayarna and model railways sandford station nene valley railway.opening soon
  7. Got my gwr liveryed 14xx popped a set of brass no plates on it what a wonderfull little loco she is .highly recommend it if you are modeling preserved or gwr runs fine looks spot on well done Dapol a winner.
  8. Exellent to see that hattons sending out detail packs.and that thay now will be with all relevant a4s.well done hattons that's what one expect from you.spot on look forward to seeing mallard any up dates on arrival dates yet.

      She related to Lucy Lane?

  10. Looks like gaugemaster will not be selling replacement gears for o gauge .expensive door stops
  11. Carnt wait to see what the a4 will be like from the other major player. Not that common news but it is out there.thay promise to be the ultimate a4 fingers crossed
  12. You only have to look at it I screams Heljan and to be fair its so much like what Bachmann wos to produce. Makes one wonder if the cad and drawings where both the same. The problem wos expected thats way Bachmann did the bogies the way thay did.says it all realy you gota run before you walk .and if a jobs worth doing do it right .and if you wonder way Heljan made it for Hattons just look at it great looks poor everything else .I only came across my friends locos and totally. Shocked not one of them run as good as even the Hornby job.look forward to the Dapol 1 in my scale
  13. Shame when you buy a loco that you got a wait for the next batch to arrive before you get the detail pack .yet again poor poor qc wonder if next batch will have hand rails.sadly I think not.shame when this could have been the best rtr a4 .in any scale let yourself down Hattons. Horny magazine never even noticed the hand rail missing. And the lining on the front what happened there.
  14. All so worthy of note it's strange how the Hattons 66 seems close to how Bachmann wos going to do its 66 .wonder way thay opted for a better and reliable mechanisam .not alot cosmetically between the to i personaly would buy a loco that can run well with no real problems .the 1s I've seen are extramly bad runners .you would expect better i wonder if thay where made by Heljan
