  1. Boiler water tanks are a separate moulding that will just pop off if carefully levered off. You will have to make a blanking cover for the boiler exhaust but its a simple process. repaint faded/weathered whatever floats your boat. As for the headcode you could run it pre-tops or tops. Flickr is your friend here plenty of options to choose from. Good luck and Enjoy. Cheers Trailrage
  2. Hello Butler As it happens the 2-Hal Coupling Pocket issue is easy to rectify by simply drilling a 1.5mm hole either side of the pocket in the place where the clips end. I have done this on mine and it works perfect using a Kibri NEM coupling bar in the shape of a screw coupling similar to these :- https://www.dccsupplies.com/item-p-103647/symoba-104-drawbar-nem-362-compatable.htm Cheers Trailrage
  3. I purchased a cheap Hornby Cotswold Rail model with the High Level Airpipes specifically to repaint into BR Blue. Closest match to the Cab/Body combination I could find was 09022 so that was the Loco I chose. Cannot understand why the haven't done the Mundane Blue 09 as they have so much Character of their own. Blue Class 08 with H/L Airpipes are also useful. As Bachmann have never fitted their 08/09 with the H/L Airpipes It makes you wonder if the will ever do it with their Class 03. A Southern Region version in Pre-Tops would go down a treat. Here's Hoping Trailrage
  4. Just thought I should give Trackshack a mention for their excellent service. Ordered a Bachmann Colas Class 70 last Thursday about 1pm and arrived on my doorstep 11am Friday Morning in little ole Blighty very well packed and perfect condition. Incredible considering it was shipped from the Isle Of Man. I've ordered stuff from the Mainland and its taken 3 times a long and looked like it was used as a football! Thank you very Much Trackshack Trailrage
  5. Didn't realise there was one! Cheers

  7. Not just Plaststuct and kits either . I've had 4 Lima B/G Powercar bodies shatter when picking them up rendering them beyond repair. Cheers Trailrage
  8. I would say that Bachmann have his one right
  9. Good Luck with your treatment Jools thoughts and best wishes are with you for a full revovery Trailrage.
  10. Weather it , run it and enjoy it! When my father goes his stuff will be passed to me and when I go my son will get it all. I have several LTD Editions or LTD production run loco's. There only really worth something to me and bought them when I could afford such luxuries so I could run them. Cheers Trailrage
  11. Both sets I ordered from peers spares were threaded. I drilled one set out to fit a Bachmann 08648. first one worked perfect and made a huge difference to the look of the Model. The second I snapped s i stupidly picked up the wrong drillbit an tried drilling to big a hole!. Ho Hum still works with one of each.
  12. Hello Peter, Regarding the Lima class 73 understandable and appreciated that you are trying to go down the keep it simple and cost effective route for the wheels, but would it be possible to produce the correct size for the Class 73 (3'4") which is approx 13.4mm. Hornby use this diameter in its 4-VEP Motor bogie which I have used to replace the original under scale 12mm wheels on the Hornby 73. Although the Difference is only .72mm in height terms it improves the look considerably as it now sits at a more acceptable height. It also looks more in keeping alongside the Dapol Model which uses 13.3mm Diameter wheels. I'm sure there are many people with models just crying out to be detailed I have 10 myself that I cannot justify replacing but cannot use due to going over to code 75 track so this could be a big boon to people such as myself who are working to a limited budget. Cheers Trailrage
  13. My only pictures of the surviving bridge section at Westward Ho
  14. Found this earlier whilst looking through David Christie collection on Flickr. Some Incredible colour Photos on there. I'm Intrigued with this one though as it looks like an ISO Container on a Lowmac.
