I too agree that hornby ,etc,have gone stupid with the small plastic detailing,everytime I get a derailment (often)there is always a trail of annoying small plastic parts that have broken off,given gluing them back on now,with new models that I have bought recently.

Hornby has gone away from providing model trains for kids and are soley basing their market on the (rich) adult modeller.

You cannot beat the older loco's for reliability,rebuildabilty and sheer strength.

I shall be enjoying everyone else's cast offs for years,most of my loco's are 30 years or more old and with a bit of love and care,soon return to their original selves.

Wear is usally minimal and most just need a set of brushes,some a recon motor,to make them as good as new.

Dont think I will be bothering with DCC and smoke,lights,sound.

Too much trouble!!
