Hello all, question to anyone with Hornby products. If I were to order a Flying Scotsman for my layout, would the tender derail on a 22" curve? I don't want to order it then discover it won't run properly.

Who knows Huh? That company speaks its own language when it comes to curves. Whatever a "third radius" is (the Hornby site assumes you know this). Know wonder its avoided like the plague in the states. Id skip it and buy something Bachmann.

I have a Hornby Murdoch and he handles 18" curves fine. If a Hornby 9F can handle 18" curves, then an A1 can take on 22" curves

Thank you both for the help! I will most likely get it now. One last question, the model is tender driven correct?

If anybody uses scenic cement on their layout a lot, I would like to ask a few questions to see that my bottle is alright. I don't know too much about it, and was wondering what's supposed to happen with the ground cover after you use it, to see if my batch is working how it's supposed to.

Could someone please at least elaborate on what 1st, 2cnd, 3rd, 4th. etc Radius means? In 40 years I have never heard these terms and can find no reference to them outside the Hornby site. What a silly way to try and sell track. Take note Bachmann, better photos (always appear very low pixel), and more complete info in your catalogs might sell a few more trains too. I have passed on more than a few items due to lack of info in the catalogs before, and will again. Its not like I can go to any old store to see one or handle one. Sorry for the minor bash, I love you guys, but catalog and store info containing real detail vs pretty words and sales smack, is somewhat lacking here too Embarrassed.

Recently, about two days ago, I was running my Henry model when suddenly he made this grinding noise and stopped. There were no sparks or anything, but when I went to inspect it, he was able to roll without power (freewheel), but did not work on power. Wheneevr another engine is on the same line, they go very slow and are unresponsive. Any help would be great as to what the problem is and how to fix it.

thanks,

@Anthony P2 @shining time

 I'm sorry for all the questions but if I were to get a Hornby Flying Scotsman, would it run on a 72" x 45" oval of track? It's from Bachmann's Overland Limited set and I misunderstood the description of the track it comes with.

the 45" dimension translates to 22r curves. others here have already state they can run theirs on 18r.

just a hint:

if you're going to be planning a layout you'll nee to brush up on your basic geometry. it's hard to plan a workable layout if you have no idea how much space things will take up.
