I need help with a converted Toby. some time ago I converted my Toby model to DCC then after a while he didn't run as smoothly as when i first converted him. then after a while longer he started would jerk as he moved along. so i ordered a new chassis and motor unit and converted that to DCC. now I'm back to my problem again, and before anyone asks, yes, i oiled him, cleaned the track, cleaned the wheels....the whole nine yards. i wired everything up correctly according to the Digitrax instructions, and made sure I did. I do have some basic knowledge with electronics but not as much as some of the experts.

I'm getting a start on the old coaches and I'm wondering, does anyone have any tips on how to paint them? Huh? (Like the little areas around the windows, for example.)

I used Humbrol #21 Gloss black enamel, to match the finishes of the rest of the model.  Take off the side rods, by unscrewing the teeny tiny bolts holding them on.  Then,  use a fine brush and a steady hand to paint the wheels.

I wouldn't recommend the mod unless you are super confident though.

Hey everyone,
Any ideas on replacing buffers for engines? Some of my engines are missing a few, notables include Edward and Diesel... Roll Eyes

Hey guys, I didn't want to start a new thread to ask this question, so I found this one to repost.

Anyway... I recently bought a Hornby Flying Scotsman on eBay. There is a problem with the engine / tender in that the engine will work on curves, but it will not work on straight pieces of track. Once it gets to a straight section, the engine stops.

Has anyone had the same problem / know how to fix it?

I think most likely get the answer you need by posting this on the Hornby Forum.

Is it the Hornby Thomas & Friends Flying Scotsman you have problems with? I can only imagine it is this one, as you are posting it in the Thomas & Friends section.

^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #69 By Racing James!: I know that Bachmann have a pretty good spare parts range, so the buffers may be included.

^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #71 By Racing James!: It is alright and I am sorry for upsetting you. I know you do not like me, or anybody else on this Forum. I cannot see myself posting anything again, and I think this will be best for everybody then, so I do not upset anybody, or stop them from posting anything.

^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #73 By Racing James!: Well I have been told to do this, not literally, but in the way of several User's telling me off. I do not do these things on purpose, and nobody seems to listen to saying that, so it looks like I will have to leave. I don't really want to do that, but if it get's User's logging on and posting, then I have no choice but too.
