    Here we have a Hornby Class 50 R3471 in Network southeast livery it's in mint condition only ever been test run once when I put in a decoder. The detail pack is missing though but I have included a pair of etched Nameplates that need to be fitted.


  2. This advert is COMPLETED!

    Hattons 14XX 1432 0-4-2t weathered and DCC fitted 4mm scale 00 gauge. Condition is as new. Dispatched with Royal Mail 2nd Class signed for. This loco is boxed as new has only been tested when I fitted the decoder and runs perfectly. All the detail parts are enclosed in the unopened bag in the box with the correct paperwork.


  3. I'm not sure if this has been asked previously but is there a DVD with the magazine as I was having a quick browse in Whsmith's in Northampton station yesterday and there was no DVD's attached to the front of the magazine. Other than that this looks to be a decent edition of BRM. Cheers Colin
  4. I've taken the plunge and bought a 121 in blue & grey and also ordered some round buffers from DCC supplies.
  5. Good afternoon,

    I see on the Bargain Hunters thread you have a Dapol Class 122 that doesn't fit in with your era.

    What Livery is it, are you looking to move it on ?




  6. Hmmm I've got a 122 that doesn't really fit in within my era I'm after a blue and grey 121 though. Doh!! I missed out on the Hattons blue and grey bargain 121's by an hour or so
  7. Well with winter well and truly here it's back into the spare room with the layout I've been concentrating on detailing stock for the layout I'm in two minds regarding the coupling of the stock. As the layout maybe exhibited someday hopefully I would like to use scale screwlink/instanter couplings but they can be a pain then there is the option of the standard tension lock couplings but I'm trying to get away from the toy look on the layout. What does everyone else think as I'm in a bit of a dilemma?
  8. I followed you all the way from Stechford to Rugby I thought it was you when it was heading back North from platform 6. It was a tad slippy when I was right behind you as my sanders and WSP light was on most of the time. Cheers Colin
  9. Do you fancy making another one purely for display as that is simply stunning. Cheers Colin
  10. As it's been an age since any kind of update here's a couple of pics to show what's been done. Firstly a Heljan class 33 now complete apart from painting the pipework on the bufferbeam. This loco has had the full works done to it repaint,weathered and laserglaze added both bufferbeams detailed. And loksound V4 decoder with legomanbiffo sounds added. The second pic showing the slow progress on the signal box. Cheers Colin
  11. I would like to thank everyone for there suggestions on curing the erratic running but I've tried everything now and ive now dumped the loco back in its box and into storage as it was becoming very close to sending it to the modelling equivalent of M.C. Metals. Cheers Colin
  12. Now the two wires from the motor to the circuit board they appear to have a suppressor each would it be worth it removing them and see what happens ?
  13. Many thanks for all of the helpful replies I'm unable to test on DC as I've no longer got a DC controller. I've tried removing the pins from the Jack shafts and the problem still happens.
  14. I'm really looking forward to seeing this 323 unit. I wish I had the skill and patience to do what you've done as the 323 units are my favourite the first type of unit I've driven on the mainline. If you need any photos of the underframe I can do that no problem at all as we have two units that stable in Coventry North Yard every night. And I prep them for service most mornings. Keep up the great work. Cheers Colin
  15. Hi all I've had a Bachmann 03 for a while now which runs very erratically sometimes it'll travel a few feet at very slow speed then it'll stop and after a second or two it'll move off again and do the same and then sometimes It'll move a quarter turn of the wheels and stop and it will constantly keep doing this. I've checked all the wiper pickups they are constantly in contact with the backs of the wheels. The wheel sets are cleanas are the pickups. This is only when I run it on DCC I've tried a Gaugemaster omni decoder and a hattons decoder both with same results as mentioned above. Does anybody have any ideas what I could do to solve this.
