Just the one then to break up the pattern :smt002
Back to you Kieran :smt023
Hehe, nice shot there, think ive seen it posted somewhere before, BATS or UKTS maybe?
Certainly an impressive round house scene though! But tsk tsk, one loco is missing a headboard!!
THAT IS VERY NICE SHOT of the turntable there =D>
I had run out of blutack :smt002
"From Night to Dawn"
that pritty cool nice one =D> \/
I love the shots of Clanline! Very impressive! =D>
Are those lights hot? :smt001
[smilie=to funny.gif] They do get quite hot, but not hot enough to burn. :lol:
Nice Kieran!...I have a big collection of loco's maself...any offers to build a layout for me?.....lol...sorry, but they are all Black, and of LMS or BR origin!.....ducks, and runs away!
ian you would be welcome to run them on my clubs if you want anytime pm if interested its 19 ft long by 8 and coltroled by a old bbc computer its all dc control ect
Well as i have to leave feedback for my christmas present my new B12 has to stay out until i run it, so i took a few snaps of her before she gets tested and put away. :wink:
She is seen alongside two Bulleid Merchant Navy loco's, 35005 "Canadian Pacific" in BR Blue and 35028 "Clan Line" in BR green. I should have got my blue A3 and Princess out for a nice BR blue line up.
So badly want that B12 now, did you get the set? just wondering if you could take some photos of the coaches with it as well keiran, I'm contemplating buying it!
Mine wasnt the set, i got this one on it's own for about £30 on ebay, not a bad buy really, the body has "Hornby Railways" on so i think it's just an improved one. I was suprised to see the tender has the little grinder thing in still to make steam loco noises!
That's gone down in folklore that has, I remember when they first moved to China, the mag reports said they'd sent a B12 out to China with the order 'copy this'. So they did
I think ( I haven't had my B12 out in years) it was a cam on one of the tender axles that had some kind of sand paper on it that rubbed against another piece making some sort of chuff noise
You are correct, and yes rough shunter a grinder thing... im not too sure what it is called and it grinds on the sandpaper... so yes it is a grinder thing. 8-[
thats scary thw way my locos run id be worrieing does it affect performance of it
Its only a bit of plastic and sandpaper on a very light weighted tender... loco's performance isn't affected, the original Hornby Railways B12 [which i have in LNER green] does the same.
