  1. I've had another look for images and this time used W22W as the Google search term, which revealed some shots on Flickr, which confirm that W22W did / does have these vents. (I still don't know if the Hornby orientation of the vent is is correct though ! Reminds me of my first Ian Kirk 4mm coaches which used Torpedo vents. How was I to know, at the age of 12, that the vents went perpendicular to the direction of travel as opposed to in-line, they're called Torpedoes !) Thanks for the info.
  2. I know this is an old thread, but I was hoping that people who have built models of the Razor Railcars may know an answer to this question... If you look at the picture of the Hornby railcar above (Entry # 3), then please look at the brake end of the roof. As well as the 4 shell vents, you can also see 2 large circular vents above the Brake End. What are these vents for ? and which members of the class needed them ? I have been looking at photographs of the real things and I have not found one that shows these two vents on the roof, but there are very few pictures of the roofs of any
  3. Mike, so far, so good. The non powered bogie sides are certainly good enough to avoid the need for scratch building the main bulk of the bogie sides. Send us a PM when you're willing to take this further.

And if you regularly take sharp tools abroad and have not had any issues then please could you also reply ? I normally use Scalpels and Swann Morton Craft blades to cut both plastikard and Cardboard, and I would put my small tool sandwich box in my suitcase and therefore they would end up in the aircraft hold but with all the latest changes to what you can and can't take on a plane, it wouldn't surprise
  6. I too am following this post, and I am actively looking at collecting the components to give it a go. The reasons that I have been looking at trying to get an Electronic Flywheel to work is directed firstly at the cost of Motors in O'gauge these days. The suppliers want to charge us £25 odd quid for a double ended motor that can supply enough power and take a flywheel, when some high quality, and highly suitable, single ended Mabuchi's can be found for around £5 each. This makes a terrific difference to the cost of an O'gauge diesel with twin motor bogies. Secondly, there has always be
