Signature: I've been in the hobby since 1999 and received my first Hornby train set when I was 3. Since then it's been one huge roller-coaster ride in this amazing hobby. I love to talk about trains all day long and I have a small but growing collection of Hornby, Dapol, ViTrains, Accurascale, Cavalex and Murphy Models products. As many of you'll know I also do a lot of 3D modelling and love to help and assist members and friends with all their 3D modelling and 3D printing needs. I also custom build Indian Railway models in N scale, HO scale and OO scale. It remains to be my most interesting aspect of the hobby. Many of you'll love to get in touch with me.

The September edition of The Engine Shed was quite a heavy one. I'm extremely pleased. It was sad to hear about Paul Isles' departure from Hornby. But I wish him well. Glad to hear the blog will continue under a new writer.

 

The Mk1 coaches look really nice. I want to order the Intercity one, but I am not sure if Hornby has done other Intercity Mk1 coaches to match it? I do have a ViTrains Intercity Class 47 that needs some suitable stock. 

 

All I can say about the LNER W1s is that they are jaw dropping...gorgeous is an understatement.

 

The ones I'm most interested in are the Class 91 and APT-P samples and they look mighty impressive. I wish I could afford a 5-car APT-P set. Already have a Class 91 on order. Looking forward to receiving it in early 2021.

 

Glad to hear that ARM has selected Hornby to be their distributor for the UK and EU. That C38 is on my wishlist, but I would like a streamlined version.

Hi, i have the previous blue one, 5 car set. Have they changed the couplings, as on mine, you have to join it all up, and then, offer it to the track

 

No they haven't by the looks of it. You can couple them on the track as well. Any flat surface will do.

I have the old one with the "iffy" connectors, I use the Zimo decoder but I have never touched any of the cv values.

 

I don't recall Hornby-Arnold ever changing the couplings on their N gauge Brighton Belle. It's been the same since release day.

I've always heard people talk about this product call T-CUT and they apply it on a cotton bud/ear bud/q-tip and rub it on. The tampo-printed numbers shsould come off slowly. 

 

I personally use isopropyl alocohol sparingly as it can damage the paint. A coact of varnish after that hides the blemishes.
