Hornby OO trains. How many names should be added here?
Triang for sure. Wrenn, Mainline, Dapol, Airfix, and others. How many other names? These are the one most familiar to me. I think the name Mehano is one. How many are lost to time? Also, my spelling may be bad.
I have a collection of these trains. I would call it a sampling. The nature of things says there should be
another name in the list of other great HO trains. Then from that sub-listing of all the other trains who names
I am stumbling with added, but others here can supply and give meaning and stories to these names much better than I can.
Well, What English made train should I start this with. Should it be big or fancy? I need to think about this.
Well, I won't do a Model photo but a vintage ( very Old ) view of a Locomotive a few members have posted. With some prototype info.

Here is my model of the "Lord of the Isles". It would seem that the locomotive was made with no cab. One was added later on with a new tender.

Here is what you get if you remove the streamlining from a coronation class pacific. A Duchess class pacific. Now some these duchess class retained their Coronation class type. They were all kept their City of prefix to a city name.
* This is one. The "City of Nottingham".

Tri-ang OO trains were popular here in Canada during the 1960's. I had a set when I was really young.
There was quite a few CP and CN versions of North American trains sold here by Tri-ang.
My set was an RS1 in early CP livery. I'd love to find that set! I've decided I'm going to start collecting some Tri-ang pieces. I still remember how heavy that locomotive I had was and how well it ran.
It looks like this set will be my first Tri-ang purchase.

Confusing the Peppercorn A1s with the Gresley A1s there, Ken. A contemporary example of the Peppercorn A1 class would be Tornado, the loco that brought the class back from the dead

Now I had 2 Tri-ang 0-6-0t locos in the BR Black paint numbered 47606. I repainted them for the PGW and numbered them 2 and 3.
* Here

The one on the right is what they looked like before the repaint.


* Next are 2 photos of the repainted PGW locomotives together.



Hope you enjoy seeing them.

** For my Canadian neighbors and forum members, I'll share with you, and everyone else, 2 Triang Pacific locomotives I only have because of a good Englishman, Ken. The first is the one I like the best Tri-ang 1542.
For whatever reason, it has the name Transcontinental. I repainted it for The PGW. I put its original number back on its cab. It is a good running locomotive and can pull a 5 or 6 passenger car train. I really like the all-weather cabs !

Hi just saw the British locos. Nice, very nice. Just to let you know why Lord of the Isles look different. Because it is two different machines.
The cabless one was the first, it was Broad Gauge running on 7 foot wide track.
The Tri-ang model was a newer loco re-using the name but on standard gauge.
It was out of date very soon after being built and gone before the turn of the century.

The second Canadian Pacific is Triang #2335. It is basically the same locomotive but with a different tender. Please no hissing or booing, because with many of my locomotives, wherever they are from
I have replaced couplers so they can be used with all my cars. I"m a horn hook X2F modeler. Only because of the sacristy of these nowadays I have started to use the new fangled knuckler couplers.
Well so much for trying to avoid controversy, back to the toy trains.
Here is Triang #2335 !

* Well back to some more critters. Main Line models made many British locomotives for the use of the citizens of Great Brittan. Among them were 0-6-0t class J-72. I am guessing at the number.
Due to the split frame technology that went into these, the main flaw in this design plagued both locos.
Metal wheels with plastic axels does not a reliable loco make. A pair of these 0-6-0t's made their way across the pond to the Frankford branch of the PGWrr, from the London branch.
They were a gift. Here they are upon arrival.



* The neat little critters needed some work. of the 6 axels, 5 were slipping. 2 of them were worn out, but one axel and 2 wheels were saved from this bad pair.
So once the axels were repaired there were only 5 axels for these locomotives to use. One locomotive was immediately returned to its former type, a 0-6-0t.
The other needs some work. It went in the shop a 0-6-0t and left the shop a 4-4-0t.
Many thanks to the ingenuity of the shop workers.

This is the 4-4-0t suburban tanker.

Good save on that 4-4-0T. Not only did that salvage an otherwise doomed engine, but it makes for a neat little locomotive in its own right.

Those are just beautiful. Mainline you say. Never heard of them.
Sounds like they really struggled with taking a most interesting
piece and getting it done right. I wonder what that backstory
was like. Remarkable save.

The story continues. These two locomotives the J72 0-6-0t and the whatever 4-4-0t still are a part of the PGW. They are seen here repainted in their PGW colors.
The 0-6-0t -s #78 and the 4-4-0t is #34. They are seen here today pulling a freight going to Bound Brook and the Reading Railroad.



* Now look who is on the east bound track to the Johnson Ave terminal. Old # 2 and 3.

For those of you who were intrigued by the Canadian Tri-ang set I found, there is a fantastic website devoted to those sets sold in Canada. Be prepared to spend a lot of time browsing it and be prepared to WANT a lot of those sets!

Locked in a bidding war for this old Chippy. With shipping it is a bit more than I would have to have paid, but what the heck.

A Hornby Terrier to be pressed into commuter service pulling a string of Triang celestory
coaches. This appears to be identical to the Dapol version, which had a 50:1 gear ratio,
making for nice slower speed ops. Won this on British Ebay, then had to wait three weeks
for delivery!

Good find if it is a Hornby. Buss! which one is it? The Bachmann or the Hornby? The Hornby is made to last. The Bachmann, well it is a Bachmann. The eyes move.

My LOTW. Got this from Hatton's today. What a great Hornby piece.
Gearing is nice and low and it creeps and shuffles perfectly. Using it
to power my Electrotren coach set for now. I wish everything ran
this well.

Fresh in from the "Doll House" of Glasgow, Scotland (dinkydoll on eBay): a Joeuf
D6100 in beautiful condition, with a three set of Joeuf wagons. The treads show
very little wear, so hopefully with a decent lubrication she will fire up nicely.
The wagons are also Joeuf, my very first, and they are interesting in that
while plain, they are sturdy and nicely proportioned- meant to be used
by little hands. They also show no tread wear or other damage. Joeuf, was
a French company that built sturdy OO French, and also some British,
outlines. I believe they were bought out by Hornby.

* Well back to some more critters. Main Line models made many British locomotives for the use of the citizens of Great Brittan. Among them were 0-6-0t class J-72. I am guessing at the number.
Due to the split frame technology that went into these, the main flaw in this design plagued both locos.
Metal wheels with plastic axels does not a reliable loco make. A pair of these 0-6-0t's made their way across the pond to the Frankford branch of the PGWrr, from the London branch.
They were a gift. Here they are upon arrival.



* The neat little critters needed some work. of the 6 axels, 5 were slipping. 2 of them were worn out, but one axel and 2 wheels were saved from this bad pair.
So once the axels were repaired there were only 5 axels for these locomotives to use. One locomotive was immediately returned to its former type, a 0-6-0t.
The other needs some work. It went in the shop a 0-6-0t and left the shop a 4-4-0t.
Many thanks to the ingenuity of the shop workers.

This is the 4-4-0t suburban tanker.

Wish I had remembered this useful post before I sunk 25 pounds into exactly one of these.
Like most Bachmann stuff, it is a beautiful shell wrapped around rotten transmissions and
hopeless side rods. Bachmann needs to bang a gong next to the collective ear of their quality
control people. I am tired of Bachmann rubbish that looks beautiful, but runs as reliably
as a Tyco Power Torque. These Chinese and their split axles are intolerable.
