  8. Thanks 34tlbB&D! Will look out for the conduction path. I have a new chassis block from Peters Spares as the original has rotted. If the new cover fails to do the trick I have a big tub of Evo Stick that should do the job! Thanks again Steve
  9. Thanks Heiter I have a spare chassis block and gear cover from Peters Spares, so am going to give that a go. If that doesn't work I will fall back on your suggestions. Thanks again, Steve
  10. Heiter, Do you have any suggestions to address the weak worm gear cover. I have a number of patriots and Scots, one of which just came back from Hornby after repair; am wondering what proactive steps I can take to prevent future problems? Thanks, Steve
  11. Back to the OP, I recently returned a Royal Scot to Hornby for repair. It had never been out of the box, but when I tested it during lockdown the gears weren't meshing. Sent it back to Hornby and after a couple of weeks got an email saying it was being sent back and when to expect it.

  13. Southern Pride Models have a large selection of 2nd hand items for sale, whilst some items have already been sold there is a lot left and at good prices: http://www.southernpridemodels.co.uk/
  14. Mark, So sorry for your loss, my thoughts are with you and their family. I didn't know Kath or John, but a double tragedy that their lives were cut short and in such rapid succession. Too many lives are being lost because of Covid, both directly to the virus and indirectly as patients with other conditions struggle to get treatment. So tragic that John managed to get the treatment he needed only to contract Covid in hospital. This is a very nasty and virulent virus, unfortunately not something everyone appreciates. Kath and John are together again, looking down on fam
  15. Another vote for perspex from me. HMBaseboards sell a control panel box and I then get a perspex top cut to size. I drew my trackplan on art card and mounted this behind the perspex using aluminium U section and steel "corners" from Wilko and bolt it all together. It can then be drilled for various switches etc. Steve
