Hornby HST

Recommended Posts



  Can anyone tell me how to remove the body on  early Hornby HST non powered and powered cars, please.


Thankyou,  Keith


Early, I presume you mean original Margate made HSTs with / without Ringfield motor...?


Secured by a lug at back ( under connecting corridor door ) and lugs under both cab doors...pull the chassis down from body about middle of model ( fuel tanks ) and rear lug should release fairly easy. Cab lugs should then pop out too, but be aware chassis slides into body a little at the cab end so you'll need to pull out when lugs released - all easier than it sounds really.


I have noticed on later Chinese made examples that the cab can come away from the rest of the body sometimes, which doesn't seem to happen on Margate examples ( less glue perhaps ? )
