  1. Once again this project is on the back-burner whilst we wait for the new buildings to be completed and we are sure of what space is available to us. But, in the meantime we are busy with a new project - A P4 model of the "New Kilns", workshops, and drift entrance at Rosedale East Mines, for the "Land of Iron" Project. Personally, myself and a colleague are constructing an 8 X 4 Hornby Dublo 3-rail layout to display at our annual show on the 3/4 of August. Howard Wilson
  2. Hi John, Thanks for the swift reply. I seem to recall that early Trix-Twin Locos ran on A C current before changing to the more common D C. How do I tell which my loco is designed for? Regards Howard Wilson
  3. Hi All, Myself and a friend are currently building a H.D. 3-Rail layout and have been given a Trix-Twin Britannia Loco. Will it run on H.D. 3-Rail Track? Regards Howard Wilson (Cleveland Model Railway Club)
  4. Hi All, I have recently been gifted a Trix-Twin "Britannia Loco. Can it be configured to run on Hornby Dublo 3-Rail Track? Regards Howard Wilson Cleveland Model Railway Club
  5. Hi all, My self and a friend at Cleveland Model Railway Club have decided to resurrect our H D 3-rail model railway. We have constructed a 8 x 4 ft board in two parts. The trackplan will basically be two loops with sidings off the inner one. What is the best way to get power connections across the board joint? Or is it better to have multiple supplies to each loop so all the track is powered? Regards Howard
  6. Hi All, as part of a project to build a Hornby Dublo 3-rail layout I have recently been given a c.1939 S.R. open wagon No 19260. The body is in V.G. condition and the chassis is good. Unfortunately it has no wheels or couplings. The method of fitting wheels is not one I am familiar with. Has anyone got one of these open wagons and could post a picture? Also what type of couplings were used. Regards Howard Wilson - Cleveland Model Railway Club.
  7. Hi All, Myself and a friend a Cleveland Model Railway Club are putting together a Hornby Dublo layout on a 8X4 board. Most of our stock ,including locos, is 50-60 years old. As a consequence the loco magnets are losing their power. Where is the best place to get then re-magnetised. Regards Howard Wilson

"Search Engine" they have responded as follows. old railway poster-solved.docxold railway poster-solved.docxDear Mr Wilson. Thank you for your enquiry to Search Engine. The poster is definitely railway related. The image shows an InterCity Pullman stewardess, the poster is advertising on board services for InterCity Pullman. We do have the uniform in our collection but unfortunately we do not hold a copy of the poster. They have dated it c.1994
  12. Hi Guys, many thanks for your replies and thoughts. Down near the bottom does it say Darlington to? Any one know of any service from Darlington to ? or was it just that the nearest main line station to Redcar was Darlington? Regards Howard Wilson C.M.R.C.
  13. Hi All, A mystery poster has been revealed on a shop wall in Redcar, n.yorks. It could possibly be railway related (Tyne Tees Pullman - "Hadrians Bar"?
