Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Hi Carl I use these in the buildings - or something very similar. Mine came in a pack of 12 (I think). For the platform lamps I found a pre-wired LED where the bulb was less than 1mm sq.

Re: Replace motor prices

Has anyone changed the motor in a Hornby M/N? I've just watched the video again, and as Brian mentioned, the superglue was used when the "new" cheap motor was installed. The motors did look the same, although there were four "dimples" on one side of the new cheap motor. So my question is, how is the...

Re: Replace motor prices

I watched that Youtube video a little while ago. I think for the cost of the motors as used by Sam, it would be worth a shot, before paying the normal(??) price asked for replacement motors. BB

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Wykeham looks a very nice town. What are house prices like? Cheers, Artur Hi Artur Wykeham is named after my road, and if I recall correctly the name comes from William of Wykeham who was the Bishop of Winchester in the 1300's. There is a Wickham (different spelling) between Southampton and Portsmo...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

I thought that was your house viewed from the shed. What a great view. They obviously had trouble with you walking on the grass. Many wouldn’t expect that in the heart of London. The garden "shed" - didn't come from B&Q :D It was a great place to work for forty two years + five years in Gray's Inn ...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Hi Brian - I know the feeling - many a time I would have to work late, but at the same time desperate to get away and would end up looking out of the widow.
