Does anybody remember which magazine did a spread about remotoring and fitting DCC lighting in to a Hornby/Lima HST, as this is the next job on my work bench. As i have 5 or 6 magazines a month it is quite a big job to search through them all, so if anybody could point me in the right direction it would be most appreciated. even as to which magazine it is in so that i can narrow down my searching.

Thank You

Thanks to Pete who passed on the information to me.

Next Question

How do i tell if I have correct length mk3's or the short ones thta hornby did, as I am remotoring 2 power cars to enable me to have a good model of the New Measurement Train using the Hurst Models Kit and it states that I need QUOTE 4x Hornby (correct length) MK 3 coaches.


Simple - the "shorties" are the same length as the Mark 1's and 2's, (I seem to remember this was something to do with radii) the windows are also compressed when compared to the correct length ones.

Hope that helps


Didn't the short ones have only 7 windows ?
