  1. The Heljan turntables are notoriously problematic and unfixable, if you type Heljan turntables into the search box you should see previous discussions on this subject.
  2. Click on the "spanner" emblem under the speedo display, then "edit loco", then properties, then you can sideways scroll 8 screens up to F28, switching them on or off and latching or permanent, and testing them to see if anything's there.
  3. No, it's 'cos the big cheese of Daimler and the big cheese of the Fiat group have plans for world domination, and Toto was told to back off. "It's believed that Mercedes' decision came directly from parent company Daimler, following a direct contact between chairman Ola Källenius and his Ferrari counterpart John Elkann." This paragraph was copied from F1.com, can't remember where I read the original story yesterday.
  4. YooChoos seems to offer the "full bag o' mashings".
  5. I DCC'd a Hornby 2P (or 4f, can't remember which) with traction tyres, and spent ages poking and prodding as it worked when it felt like it, (I have previously done other similar locos with no probs), and when I removed the tyres it worked fine. I couldn't figure out why, ( sometimes fine on rolling road, not on track, and vice versa), but just accepted it. If its easy to get the tyres off give it a try.
  6. There are 6 LMS ones on Ebay at the moment, from £15 - £25, this is the best one, 'cos it's mine! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/193306525837?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  7. My un-used one has those fitted, but there is a small pack with just screw couplings in it.
  8. Glad to see the message is sinking in, at least with the proletariat if not the masters. Feel free to badger Bachmann at every opportunity, even if you just say "For God's sake give 'em one just to shut the moaning oiks up"
  9. So that's where your name comes from, merci Buc.
  10. 5th was.... A 3rd piggin' LNER one. Sod ' em with knobs and bells on.
  11. Channel 4 coverage extended for 2020 https://www.planetf1.com/news/channel-4-extended-f1-highlights/
  12. 1st loco they did was a Southern one. 2nd was a GWR one. 3rd was an LNER one. 4th was............... Another LNER one. So sod 'em. An LMS fan.
  13. I've been banging on this particular drum for years, usually in Mr Lovett's ear at York show, with a generally non committal response. However, at last year's Derby exhibition I had a bash at his younger replacements, and got the response "I suppose it is about time we did one"; so I am now as optimistic as I have ever been that it might actually come to fruition.
  14. Have a heart. Mr P does his best typing with 1 finger whilst swinging a big mug of tea in his other hand.
