Hi...I've since painted up the four HORNBY Open Wagons using grey primer for the body work and painting the hinges and corner plates with black TAMIYA paint. I'm well pleased with the re-paint of the wagons it is now a great improvement on their original paint job.

Hi...In my quest to obtain Rolling Stock fitted with the older original HORNBY Couplers I've ordered the following items - I needed to do this to match the Couplers on my HORNBY LBSC Tank Engine and the OO Guards Van for compatibility.

Hi...My first running of the LBSC O-6-OT Tank Engine proved to be disappointing- the engine was a balky runner- wouldn't operate at slow speed- noisy and stalled often. So, after a good oiling with Castrol Oil on the thirteen points on the engine and followed by three forty minute run-in sessions completed - the Tank Engine is now a smooth runner, can operate at very slow speeds in both directions and is much quieter....I'm now very pleased with the HORNBY Tank Engine.

Hi...I've been waiting 18 days on Postage and my Hornby LBSC O-6-OT Staem Engine has not arrived from the UK. The best on postage I've experienced so far is 10 days from the UK so it is doable- the worst is 46 days postage- needless to say by 46 days I'd lost total interest in the project. I do not know what the problem is - it is all very unpredictable and certainly unreliable and certainly very unacceptable. Waiting endlessly makes me feel physically ill.

Hi...With my four LANGLEY Sheep I've made a Paddock. The Hedges are made from cardboard and scouring pads. I plan to obtain more Sheep.
