Plenty of retro 00-gauge trains here; not just retro 'cause they're models of steam locos but because most of them are 1970s/1980s (although I do have one made in 1959 and still going strong with the original motor!!). One is a '70s Airfix kit I turned into a working version with a few old Hornby spares. Photos to follow some time if anyone's interested in having a peek.

yes pleaes! the Airfix one sounds clever?

I rescued the board from dads garage (I gave it to my sister and its since been used for moving heavy stuff around :lol:), it's a toy box edition - I only wanted it back to film my GF's dance classes with the GoPro, funny how these projects start isn't it ... :lol:

I was shocked at the value of some of these things - I should have looked after my toys better ... :shock:

WD :D

There are a couple of photos in this reply (as attachments rather than "embedded" JPEGs) of both the Airfix BR 4MT 2-6-0 as above, and also one of my Hornby-Dublo 8F goods loco, which is the late 1950s one but with added detail (lamps, cab glazing etc.); I also replaced the original plastic HD carrying and tender wheels with modern metal ones. Hope the pics are worth the wait! The Airfix loco benefits an awful lot from a little extra detailing and especially modern "Pressfix" self-adhesive decals. I need to add some footplate crew figures to its cab some time soon.

This is a great idea that should be sorted as soon as possible... if not sooner.

I'm sure everyone is gagging to see all my shite!! although the missus is having her 74 Alfa spider restored at the mo'.
