  1. Morning all as you will see from photos I have made a right pigs ear of drilling holes in marker lights of Hornby 08 to fit Express models lighting kit, does anyone know if someone produce white metal one as I think Hornby won't sell them at 67 my eyes are not as good nowadays even with magnification visor.
  2. Thanks for the replies people, yes I do stick to the policy of buyer beware so I did think about keeping the Clayton and purchase a new motor but just had email from Ian at Gaugemaster who are now Heljan agents but haven't any class 17 motors at this time but if it cost £30 for a motor and postage I can get a discount one for the same cost.
  3. Just purchased a preowned Heljan Class 17 Clayton from Hattons the green D8600, they did say that the motor was noisy but I went ahead and purchased it. Done a 3 hour running in at half speed and plenty of lub to try to quieten the motor to no avail.This morning I decided to fit dcc decoder to try it out on my layout after ten minutes running at half speed total seizure of motor, and the front left hand front window fell out. Heljan quality going down the tubes Clayton going back to Hattons, hope there 0 gauge is not the same for 2021.
  4. Thanks to all who replied to my question about Parkside VEA wagons, I have ordered 2 and purchased LMS BP02 buffers what a great addition to the the kit and my other wagons .

  5. Thanks gentlemen for your advice I've ordered 2 VEA wagon kits to assemble but can you tell me What metal buffers do you use I have been looking at Markits white metal.
  6. Thing about buying some to put under Hornby VEAs Railfreight wagons are they easy to put together and robust enough.
  7. Has anyone used this company for the purchase of MODELTORQUE replacement motor kit for Lima motors.
  8. Thanks for that Half full been wondering what that was hence I also found several AR1s from Digitraxs and autoreversers .
  9. Can anyone out there identify this box and what is does, it was amongest a railway layout which was broken down after its owner passed away. I purchased a job lot so I have no idea what it is. It has two buttons and leds and two small push buttons. I have had this kicking around for 8 years so I would like to know before I bin it.
  10. I now have the body off and it's a Hornby decoder that has 7 straight connections don't know if it can be programmed as I want to change the lights to show red not white.
  11. Thanks Smoke box I didn't pull front down hard enough to release body off the front first.
  12. Thanks for your quick reply Iain I should have given more details the set is all non powered I have modified the front car to be towed and has kadee fitted but I want to get rear lights to work with dcc decoder, the lights come on when I use 9volt battery white and red when I change battery terminals round and for some reason white lights occasionally come when towed around I the layout. I have tried programmin track on my Lenz 100 but just get error 2. Do I have to undo connector with spring on to release the body which I have started to do.
  13. I have secondhand Pendolino set by Hornby but don't know how to get body off dummy car as I wish to see if a dcc function decoder has been fitted or not.
