yep i'v fallen in love with them,but i know nothing at all about them .I have two engines and lots of trucks, i have track but i use my mamod track as its easy to set up. One thing that puzzels me is that the locos are differant sizes but both run on the same track
Your introduction makes me feel old, as the first loco I can ever remember playing with as a child was a Hornby Doublo clockwork loco belonging to my older cousin. From memory it was tinplate, green, lined in yellow (or red), had a tender and was new ! Later the same cousin introduced me to the wonders of three rail electric locos.
Happy memories and we didn't give a tinker's cuss about how close to the prototype the beauty was.
Enjoy your collection and best of luck.
