>Hornby upgraded their MKIII coaches a few years ago and are now correct length
which is why I bought Jouef Mk IIIs for the HST I had many years ago. Are the Jouef moulds the basis for the Lima or are they lost forever?

>I always understood that the Lima Mk3s were their own production not related to Jouef. Weren't they separate companies at the time?.

The takeover of Jouef by Lima took place during my 20 year holiday from modelling, so I can't say.

>They still had buffers and the Jouef wheels were awful.
But the length more than made up for that compared to the "shorty" MkIII that came with the Hornby HST.

>Oh and you need to add a little flouride to your water supply.
I'm pretty sure that became mandatory during the last couple of years. Now the government are debating (internally, I don't think they've asked the rest of us) adding iron to our flour.
