Re: New Rails / Dapol OO terrier

I phoned Rails this week and was told that there had been a slight delay due to an issue with the PCB but they still should arrive soon, I hope so as it’s my Christmas present 😊

Loco repair

I have a broken wire on a Hornby loco which needs replacing, it’s the connection between the engine and the tender, anybody know where I can get this done? I’m based in North West Kent.

Thanks
