  1. Just done my EOI for Original IC. Came close to buying a kit and sacrificing a Bachmannn 37 for this but there is no way I would be able to match the potential quality of this little beauty. Thank you Rails and Accurascale and good luck. Cheers Trailrage
  2. Had this come up on my emails https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hornby-Class-90-Electric-loco-non-power-bogie-with-wiring-OO-/353013929923?_trksid=p2385738.m4383.l4275.c10

  4. Only experienced that on two pots of Railmatch paints and Ive been using them for the best part of 30 years. My two culprits were Royal Mail Red and EWS Yellow. I once had the complete opposite with their Matt Black which no matter what I did came out like clotted cream! Cheers Trailrage
  5. They certainly are. I ordered 6 bottles just over £20 and was post free for railmatch paint about a week ago. Received them in 2 days. Excellent turn around by them and Royal Mail. Thank you both loads. Cheers Trailrage
  6. Hello 5BEL Found these on the Bay of E Not exactly Bargain price but should do the Job. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bachmann-BR-STANDARD-MK1-TRAILING-BOGIE-COMPLETE-ELECTRIC-PAIR/233286094283?hash=item3650ef4dcb:g:14kAAOSwW8ZdKNAf https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bachmann-BR-CLASS-416-2-EPB-EMU-DRIVING-CAR-BLACK-UNPOWERED-BOGIE-ONLY-No-1/133361279581?hash=item1f0cf3a25d:g:iWkAAOSwOWtebVVH Cheers Trailrage
  7. This about as close you'll get albeit an 09 https://www.hattons.co.uk/25759/hornby_r2872_class_09_shunter_d3721_in_br_green/stockdetail.aspx
  8. I have a 9 coach set That ran fine pulling but just derailed when pushing. seemed to have plenty of power but then I had no Gradients as such on that particular layout either. Fitted a second powered chassis under the non powered end and no more derailing. had no issues with the Powered Chassis fighting each other either. Hope that helps Cheers Trailrage
  9. Chatham Street Models under the the Multi story Carpark and SEA which were electrical repair shop that also sold Lima and some White Metal detail kits such as 3 and 4 aspect signals from I think W&T. Trents (later Beatties) also had a smaller shop at Meadway Precinct in Tilehurst. For a While you also had On the RIght Tracks which was at the Hospital end of Watlington Street. It was good to have options back then! Cheers Trailrage
  10. My Father recently gave me a Railroad DOG which although had been ran in had barely been used. Problem is it going forward it runs like a DOG! Reverse is smooth as can be. He did say he thought it was like it when he first ran it but I've been running it for weeks and so far no improvement. I did take a film on my phone of it running in each direction (about 10 secs) but it's 18mb I cannot upload. 2 questions come to mind :- 1 If it was quatering would the running be the same in both directions ? 2 If it was a split gear would the running be the same in both directions ? Ayone else experienced this with theirs? Cheers Trailrage
  11. Wow now that looks brilliant. Love the weathering How easy was it to remove the Number and what did you use? Also who's replacement Numbers were they ? If you don't mind me asking. Cheers Trailrage
  12. Images do seem hard to come by but hopefully these may help to a degree
  13. 550014 -2011 550024 - 2011 550026 - 2011 550029 -2014 550037 -2014 550038 - 2014 550048 - 2008 I hadn't realised that even the new ones have the numbers on the top as well Not a roof shot but an interesting side view of a brand new Flask Wagon with the hood open Cheers Trailrage
  14. Found a few shots that prove at least some did have the large number on top of the Flask hood.
  15. Thank for taking the time to look everyone. I's much appreciated. Have to admit at a quick glance from across a field it would look similar. Cheers Trailrage
