Re: Airfix Dr X Wagon Missile

Happy 2020

A garden layout would suit me fine, long summer evenings sitting and watching the trains with a drink of course :D

Re: Heljan class 35 slow runner

Heljan had motor issues with the Class 17 regarding slow running and I seem to remember a lot going back because of this, your Class 35 may be suffering from a similar problem. I own one that's a slow runner, fortunately it didn't cost me anything as it was given to me to use it as a test bed for de...

Dapol Class 68 Trans Pennine

Had an email earlier from Hattons advising that Dapol are doing a OO gauge re-run of the popular Class 68 in Trans Pennine livery. They are asking for pre-orders to see if there is enough interest to do a production run. For anyone interested due to missing out on the first production Brutus, now is...
