Re: 0-4-0T - an alternative chassis

I have not tried it myself but would imagine a terrier or the Toby the tram chassis would be a possibility. If you need a Triang body (Not a perfect one but something to use) I actually have a choice of two as I use the chassis for narrow gauge conversions. Thank you for your suggestions, Goat. I'v...

Re: 0-4-0T - an alternative chassis

Hello Godiva ,,,,,,,,,,This is not my interest but if you look at what is available in OO gauge you are bit limited as Hornby dominate it. I think you should have a look around at what is available in HO. Try looking at HO 0-4-0 locos and chassis. You may find something useful. The HO market is hug...

Thank you both for your input.
An old Airfix "Schools" kit appears to satisfy my needs.

0-4-0T - an alternative chassis

Ever keen to create a fleet of freelance (steam) locos for my Wessex & South Midlands Railway, I rather like the bodies of the older Triang-Hornby 0-4-0T's, but I'm not a fan of the wheel arrangement. I would like to fit an 0-6-0T chassis to such a body, but which chassis? I'd be very pleased to hea...

Perishing T9

Firstly, I must say that I'm not certain which is the best forum section to post this item in. I have an opportunity to acquire, on-line, a non-running Hornby T9 4-4-0 which the seller describes as: Slipping gear, chassis block & motor mount perished. I've been in touch with several repairers asking...

Converting a Hornby Edward 4-4-0

Thanks to Rails of Sheffield's current generous offer, I have acquired an Edward with a view to converting it to a freelance 4-4-0 of the Wessex & South Midlands Railway. I need to replace the "face" smokebox door with a "real" smokebox door. I'm keen to know which (Hornby?) smokebox doors will fit....
