Re: What Got You Into Railway Modelling?

My dad, who passed last November :( , he worked for BR at the goods depot and was able to bring home lost / unclaimed items some of which were Dublo / Tri-ang items.

Cheers Dad!

Re: Your latest acquisition

Purchased a Bachmann 4F from the recent Rails sale / bargains promo.
Loco running well on DCC.

Just yesterday ordered a set of Hornby coaches, the Midland Suburban set of 4 BR Maroon coaches.

Hope her indoors doesn't notice. :o

Re: Bachmann 2019

I get plenty of email updates from various online retailers regarding Dapol and Hornby new releases for loco's at least. Not seen much at all relating to Bachmann products recently. I could be wrong and the Hattons story aside but are Bachmann struggling to keep up?

Sorry, not looked at the forum for a few days. All is well - just pulled a little harder and new coupling safely fitted.
same here with the Cl37 front coupling, just pulled harder and it came free.

Then remove it, even when glued the whole lot will come away quite easily. There isn’t really a glue on the market that will stick a coupling in place permanently.
I've had a good go at it, but spurred on I will have another go :D

Re: Replacing faulty couplings

A s/h Class 37 I purchased last year had glued in couplings!

Pretty annoying as I wanted to remove the front one or aesthetics.
