The place to share your Triang or Hornby 0-4-0 models in their various forms. This is a fun thread but also includes various conversions and scratchbuilds using parts from Triang or Hornby 0-4-0's.

I like how your control switch panels are coming along. I did something along those lines but different in regards to manual point control.
