A fabulous motor replacement & refit to my aging Austerity 2-8-0, including rebuilding the motor cradle. A couple of months on, the loco is as new. I have De-Weathered the loco so as to match its ex-Works condition. Totally trustworthy team of enthusiasm for our delight. Thank you Hobbyrail.

Bought an N gauge layout from Hobbyrail, Barrie spent a few hours with me at the shop going though the wiring to check it was ok and making sure my loco ran ok.

I recently acquired an N gauge set that had been dismantled over 10yrs ago with 5 engines, Barry spent over an hour with going through the basics and testing the engines for me. Have had trouble procuring the IPA as chemists no longer sell it, got some off Amazon. Once I have completed the base support units I shall be back V. From Lichfield
