There are two ways you can get your club involved with the MRL Forums!
1. You can send the club's details to an administrator to be advertised such as where the club is based, when you meet up and what your website (if you have one) is.
2. If you want to go the extra mile, you can set up your club's own sub-forum! This will not only allow you to advertise, but also mean you and your members can have a forum of your own to use for your needs.
What ever you want, all you need to do is send an Administrator a PM to get your Club or Society added here, and outline what you would like from us.
Tri-ang Railways, Tri-ang Hornby, Hornby Railways and Hornby locomotives all come originaly with an instruction sheet, which have basic maintenance guides for the locomotives of the time the Instruction Sheet or book was printed.
These can be obtained, to replace original lost ones, from various sources.
Type 5 and 6, 1989.
The first type of Tri-ang Hornby / Hornby Railways Ringfield Motor. Type 1.
The crew are from a Bachmann pack. There are currently two packs containing Steam era locomotive department type figures.
1950s Train Crew Bachmann Model 36-407 Scale: OO (1/76)
Locomotive staff Bachmann Model 36-047 Scale: OO (1/76)
Some really good figures. Some can be modified, by removing oil cans, cleaning rags, wheel hammers, etc. for more general use.
Some have the arms as seperate mouldings, glued into place. These can be removed and replaced differently if required....
1951 was the year of the Standard Steam Locomotive. The Railway Magazine of the time focussed on the development of these locos. Rather than just looking backwards to those days, it is good to listen to and read things from the perspective of the time!
