Re: GWR 1366PT - Heljan Model

Just had a reply from CSP saying the 1361 kit depends on new etches being delivered. Basic kit price: £95. Could be released this year.

1366 kit: not sure. Instructions need rewriting, apparently.

Re: Some North Eastern Locomotive Builds

I wonder if the Bradwell chassis would work under the later Hornby body? Dave was of the opinion, when he mentioned it to me, that the Hornby B1 was not quite right - he thought the running board drop ahead of the cylinders was over-scale. I've kept my eyes open for a cheap spare body to check this...

Re: Hornby King

I wish to convert over to P4 a recently obtained tender drive King. Can substitute P4 Wheels be obtained to fit tender or do I have to strip out and fit new chassis ? To convert a Ringfield tender-drive to P4 is quite a challenge. It is in effect the same as a three axle Ringfield diesel bogie, but...
