Description
This is the B & M diesel. It will fit on an oldTri-ang TC Bo-Bo chassis but I need to shorten it.
Description
Railroad 9F with Tri-ang Dock Shunter cab with Tri-ang TC Pacific tender behind. This will become a British version of an American ALCO steam loco, Needs a bogie under the cab. Will become 93007..
Description
These are the coaches that came with the Dickie Toy Train Set I bought in Cyprus. They will be fitted with Lima continental coach bogies..
Description
This is a very heavy kit of the prototype HST (2 cars). It sits on an older Hornby HST set. It is so heavy if I run it quickly on the Garden Railway it tends to go straight on at the one tight curve! It is a two car set.I glued it together and it’s coming apart. I will have to solder it together and see if it lasts longer. It looks good on a set of Mk III’s in Ex livery.
BEING WORKED ON
Description
The chassis seems massive sitting under the body. Not a lot of options to add to the body to over-lap the chassis as the two bogies have to swing. Needs some thought and then a new livery.
Description
Old Tri-ang 101 DMU with wheels not that happy on PECO 100 track. I replace the wheels with Wrenn wheels that I pick up at Toy Fairs. They cost £2 an axle. The axle is slightly longer than the Hornby replacement wheels and therefore fit OK.There are two types of Wrenn axle; one has a blunt end as shown and that fits the hole in the bogie. The other is a pinpoint axle which would not fit so well. There are spoke and solid wheel versions too. 
Description
The wheels are bright chrome so I use a black felt tip pen to blacken the rim.
Description
Some changes. The bogie wheels have been changed to small metal rimmed ones. The American style tender has gone and a Hornby Duchess power bogie now propels the loco with a German style tender top and it is now oil fired. Still needs work such as some filling, more pipes on the other side of the cab-firebox and some transfers and number on the tender as of May 2019.
Description
Hornby A4 tender drive. The loco was very corroded but cleaned up well. Pick up from the coupled wheels to the tender drive had corroded away so added wire from securing screw to the electric tender coupling under the cab. Pick, a piece of stiff wire, was soldered onto the motor collecting from one wheel. Goes well.
