  1. Hornby Trains O gauge track

    Hello, I have a friend selling a few boxes of original Hornby Trains O Gauge track for Hornby Trains clock work Trains with a few track accerises & she asked if I could ask for a price guide on these. They are all in their original boxes but are '2nd' hand items. Any ideas? -. Thanks in advance, Tony.
  2. You get everything that you see in the photos. Flying Scotsman (Hornby), Lima SNCF loco (bought in Italy) and the red Canadian loco, 3 coaches for the Flying Scotsman, a coach for the Lima and a goods wagon for the Canadian. Battery box for Lima, power block for Hornby. Some track from the three sets, some straight track and a junction piece, viaduct supports (one or two missing), damaged track etc. (see photos). I can't say what works and what does not. All I can say is that the last time (6 months ago) these were set up the Lima and the Canadian locos (which has a cool headlight) worked. The FS worked too, but was very slow going around the track. Since then, however, you can see that the front set of wheels have become detached from the FS loco, and a spring has popped out. I cannot guarantee that any of these locos work now, but all 3 worked until relatively recently, and my guess would be that the Canadian and Lima will work straight off. The FS will need a bit of work, but I expect it is a relatively easy fix for somebody with some skill with these locos (but I can't guarantee that). (Horsetan suggests a simple screw fix). €180 cash for all of this if collecting; €200 if posting to Ireland. More to post abroad. PM if interested. More photos below this message. Email me (northwicklowbooks@gmail.com) or PM if interested... Cash or paypal is preferred. The first photo, below, shows everything.
  3. Electrofrog or Insulfrog??

    Hi lads, I know this question has probably been asked a million and one times but which type of points are better; electrofrog or insulfrog? I am planning a new layout with more complicated track work than before so I need the best running quality and reliability possible. Thanks, Seán.

    Hi all, no photos this time but a video of the progress on Kilmeg since my last update. Enjoy, Seán.
  5. Hornby Vs. Peco Track?

    Hello everyone, I just have a question regarding track for model layouts. Would you recommend hornby track or peco track for running Irish models? On my old basic layout I only used hornby track as that was the only track I knew of at the time but now that I've decided to build a more advanced larger layout (having seen other modellers on the site use the peco streamline track) I'm beginning to think that maybe it's time to move to peco. How do you think the two brands compare when it come to reliability, appearance, build quality and easiness to work with because those are the qualities I want in my new layout. I myself have found that some of my locos don't like hornby track, especially when it comes to points. Any help and feedback as well as advice is appreciated. Thanks all.
