John Webb has posted this information in another part of the forum which may be useful for collectors:-

QUOTE There is a firm 'South Pole Magnets' based in Bradford on Avon in Wiltshire, that advertises replacement magnets for Hornby Dublo, Triang and Wrenn in recent issues of 'Railway Modeller'. Tel: 0845 8386803 is their website. They use modern magnetic materials and claim to restore performance without the need to remagnetise. I haven't tried out their goods, but it sounds good in theory.

It is relatively easy to replace the magnets in old locomotives as the motors are bolted together and easily taken apart and reasembled.

Happy modelling
