Have a look at this topic, post #5 for details of a dealer in second-hand H&M controllers. I have purchased from this person with confidence. He also produces a couple of booklets about how to use/connect up the equipment.

There are makers of modern controllers with larger current outputs than the Hornby - All Componants, Gaugemaster and Kent Panel Controls are three you might want to look at. You need 1A output or '12VA' capacity for the old models.

QUOTE (Dinwiddy @ 2 Jan 2008, 21:55) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>.... If the model is still apoor runner and the windings dont look too burnt have a look on the web for 'rare earth' replacement magnets as the Triang ones are 40 to 50 years old now and losing strength. I have heard that the even older Hornby-Dublo locos which have had weak magnets replaced are running better than new now.
Take a look at this link regarding replacement magnets.
