Triang / Fleischmann /Marklin bulbs    

Triang Spares - Bulbs for Tri-ang colour light signals. I'm much more of a Hornby Dublo supplier, but am aware that all of the above bulbs are identical to the original Triang bulbs, part numbers S6284 (green) and S6285 (red). They will fit the R573 double track gantry, and also its single post equivalent the RT405 / R405. They do not fit the later Hornby Railways version, which uses screw-in bulbs instead. I understand that they will also fit the Marklin and Fleischmann systems.

     

Some feedback about the bulbs: "Many thanks for the bulbs. They do indeed fit the oldest type Hornby Colour Light Signals and give a nice realistic colour and tone."

Traction tyres - Hornby Dublo diesels & EMUs.

F44 - New/unused/repro items. These are shown on the left side of the photo They are the correct square cross-section (c.1mm square) so fit HD wheels extremely well, they run well, and are cream coloured. "The tyres work extremely well - better than the originals!" "Hi, I bought these tyres off you recently. They are brilliant. I checked your listings this morning and see there are none listed. Any time you have some more in stock you have a ready buyer here. Regards". "These are the best tyres"... "Excellent. Fit better than the originals. Thank you"..."The traction tyres work really well on my BOBO and COBO so I would like to fit them to my two Deltics."..."Thanks John They work a treat"..."Hi bought 2 packs recently very impressed with performance so buying further sets for spares."..."Best tyres yet- fitted 2x class 20's no problem; recommend a try- many thanks ++"..."Many thanks for sending the Traction Tyres so promptly. I have fitted them to my locos and they work extremely well, in fact the CO-CO loco hauls 20 heavy goods wagons with ease!"

 

Diameter of wheel (groove) they typically fit:  13mm.

Unstretched internal diameter: 8.0mm.

Unstretched width: 1.35mm +/- 0.05mm.

Unstretched thickness (depth): 0.8mm

 

Generally supplied in packs of 6 (£5.70 delivered) although other quantities can be supplied. (25% discount for 4 or more packs). (Several equivalent items are usually available). (60p postal discount only on this item).

     

Some further feedback about the Hornby Dublo tyres: They may well fit other locos with a grooved wheel and a diameter around 12 - 15mm or so, for example Wrenn / Hornby small tyres / tender drive locos. A long-standing customer reports that their stretchiness makes them excellent for some Lima and Airfix tender-driven locos and diesels. Another has stated that they’re just the ticket for Lima Class 20 and DMUs. But I haven’t tried these, and so can’t provide any advice about any other applications.

 

A cautionary tale - it's essential to clean out the groove before fitting the tyres: "John, I did as you suggested and found that what I thought was smooth metal was in fact the remains of a very badly worn previous set of tyres. Problem solved ! The loco is now working permanently nose-to-nose with another one, and last night at our HRCA meeting they pulled 42 wagons plus a brake van, so there are obviously no adhesion issues now !

Traction tyres - OO gauge - fit many diesel and tender-driven steam locos  

Tyre Details - Table

ONE PACK BOUGHT BY RS. ONE PACK BOUGHT BY JW. ONE PACK BOUGHT BY ME.

 

Traction tyres - generic OO type.

These are made from the same cream coloured material as the type above, but have a slightly larger diameter. These are brand new traction tyres which are suitable for many OO gauge diesel locomotives and tender-driven steam locos. 

 

Diameter of wheel (groove) they typically fit:  12 - 15mm.

Unstretched internal diameter: 9.5mm.

Unstretched width: 1.35mm +/- 0.05mm.

Unstretched thickness (depth): 0.8mm

 

Generally supplied in packs of 8 (£7.00 delivered) although other quantities can be supplied. (25% discount for 4 or more packs). (Several equivalent items are usually available). (60p postal discount only on this item).

      Some feedback about the generic OO tyres: "Brilliant item....transformed my Hornby 4f into a decent runner again...now able to pull 6 x mainline coaches....excellent!...many thanks. Regards"."As you will know, I've bought these from you before and found them to be fantastic. Easy to fit and very effective." "They fitted my Airfix Royal Scot with tender drive perfectly. They have so much traction it's hard to move the loco by hand!! Fantastic product." "Fit Mainline Peak perfectly". For an Airfix 4F - "it fits and works properly", "Have fitted them to the “Mainline” Peak diesel which now pulls five HD super detail coaches with ease (six at a push) so am more than pleased with them. The loco did need more weight to it on top of the lump of steel fitted to completely stop wheel slip but the tyres fit well and stay on at speed." "Great price, fit Airfix 4f & Mainline Cl 45.", "Great for hornby 25 37 47 43 hst 91 very happy 100% Recommended. thank you.","Many thanks for kindly sending up the traction tyres. I've tried several varieties, and these ones are by far the best." One long-standing customer reports that their stretchiness also makes them excellent for some Lima and Airfix tender-driven locos and diesels.....Feedback from another is "what great tyres they are. They fit the Lima railcar and type 33 bogies perfectly." Also, “I coupled a train of 10 Triang/Hornby coaches including 3 from the 1960's which are notoriously heavy and unwieldy, onto a H0 Lima class 33 chassis fitted with these tyres and with the SMALL ballast weight. It dragged them round the track as though they weren't there. Now that's what I call traction.”....Also “Hi. You may recall I bought some of these tyres several months ago and left the second comment above. (re Lima). I have subsequently fitted one of these tyres to an Airfix (made by Bachmann) CPR Jupiter 4-4-0 wild west loco with 16mm driving wheels. There was still some capacity left for even larger wheels. Whatever compound they're made of its stretchiness is superior to any others I've tried. Hope this is useful. Regards”....Another comment: “just to let you know the traction tyres have arrived safely and are as good as the last lot I purchased. Don't know how my Lima locos would manage without them. Thank you for a great service and product.” And again "Thanks I had to reorder ran out used them on 2 Hornby class 25s a Lima king class and a Lima class 33 fit great thanks". I understand that these tyres are too narrow for the Airfix 4F, so if you have such a loco or similar, I suggest you measure the tyres carefully and contact me - I can cut these tyres to various widths.
Traction tyres - OO gauge - wider variant  

Tyre Details - Table

Traction tyres - Wider variant of the generic OO type.

These are made from the same cream coloured material as the types above. They have the same diameter and cross-section as the generic OO type, but are slightly wider. These are brand new traction tyres which I understand are suitable for earlier tender drive Hornby locos eg R303. 

 

Diameter of wheel (groove) they typically fit:  12 - 15mm.

Unstretched internal diameter: 9.5mm.

Unstretched width: 1.70mm +/- 0.05mm.

Generally supplied in packs of 6 (£6.40 delivered) although other quantities can be supplied. (25% discount for 4 or more packs). (Several equivalent items are usually available). (60p postal discount only on this item).

      Some feedback about the Wider variant OO tyres: "Perfect fit Hornby 125 37 43 47 52 25", "Hi John, received tyres today. Fitted them to the Airfix Royal Scot. First run the tender waddled around and fell off at a point. Rechecked and carefully lined up all the tyres in the middle of the wheel. Made sure they were all seated correctly. Tried again. Success. Loco ran perfectly. Ran through cross over in both directions, did the same with 5 coaches on. Will gradually fit them to all the Loco's over the coming days. So thanks so much for all your trouble." "Fitted the wider tyres on duchess tender today stopped it crabbing many thanks." "For the following three types of locos: "Results Good . No Slipping no slowing down on curves . Pulling extra Carriages / Wagons . Hornby 9F [R550], Hornby Evening Star R 861, Hornby R552 Oliver Cromwell", "your wide OO traction tyres fit my vintage tender driven Duchess of Sutherland R066, easy and perfect".
Traction tyres - N Gauge Larger Steam locos.  

Tyre Details - Table

Traction tyres - larger-wheeled N gauge steam locos.

These are made from the same cream coloured material as the OO tyres. These are brand new traction tyres which are suitable for many N gauge steam locos - pacifics and similar. The photo shows one tyre stretched over a socket with the same diameter as the driving wheels of a Minitrix Britannia which is shown for comparison (but is not included in the sale).

 

Diameter of wheel (groove) they typically fit:  9 - 11mm.

Unstretched internal diameter: 6.5mm.

Unstretched width: 1.5mm.

Unstretched thickness (depth): 0.8mm

 

Generally supplied in packs of 8 (£6.55 delivered) although other quantities can be supplied. (25% discount for 4 or more packs). (Several equivalent items are usually available). (60p postal discount only on this item).

      Some feedback about the larger N Gauge tyres: "Just to let you know that I've fitted the traction tyres to my old Minitrix Britannia and they have given it a new lease of life. The loco is now quite happy to pull a rake of eight Pullman coaches up a gradient with no bother at all! Absolutely delighted with the product! Many thanks!"

"Hi, Thank you ever so much for the Traction Tyres they fit lovely and our loco is working a treat....Will deal with you again when I need more of the above, as they are just as good or even better quality than some on Ebay for double the price. Many thanks once again. My kindest and best regards."

Traction tyres - N Gauge Diesels & Smaller Steam locos.  

Tyre Details - Table

Traction tyres - Diesel outline and smaller-wheeled N gauge steam locos.

 

These are made from the same cream coloured material as the types above.

 

Diameter of wheel (groove) they typically fit:  6 - 8mm.

Unstretched internal diameter: 4.5mm.

Unstretched width: 0.8mm.

Unstretched thickness (depth): 1.0mm

 

Generally supplied in packs of 8 (£6.50 delivered) although other quantities can be supplied. (25% discount for 4 or more packs). (Several equivalent items are usually available). (60p postal discount only on this item).

      Some feedback on the smaller N gauge tyres:

 

"Great for lima class 31"

 

"Received safe and sound thanks - fit a lima 31 perfectly."

"Thanks. Product arrived in good condition this morning. Good to see my 45 year old Lima N gauge diesel running successfully again."

"Thankyou for the tyres. They fit my Lima class 31 well."

"Hi, I recently bought a set of n gauge diesel traction tyres. Just to let you know that I have changed the tyres this afternoon and it has made my lima deltic a totally different locomotive. It is at this very moment pulling 16 coaches with very little effort and a good turn of speed. Many many thanks,"

"Just received traction tyres and they fit my Lima class 55 Deltic perfectly so thanks very much for your help"

"Bought a set of traction trees for my lima Cl 86s. both now running like a dream. Excellent value for money."

From a different purchaser: "Lima class 86 is running very nicely now, it pulled 8 coaches with ease, have not tried any more than 8 yet... " and then "It has improved it immensely, tried it with 10 coaches and it still pulled very well, no slipping at all!".

"Cheers John, received this morning. N gauge Lima Deltic now gripping nicely, no more wheel spinning. Regards."

 

"Thank you Thank you all arrived yesterday morning in the post tip top condition fitted locos perfect. Could not be more pleased with the service and product. Once again thanks and will order again if needed."

 

Then finally "I have decided to do all my minitrix class 47s with the tyres now, and my other lima trains too, so impressed I was with the Lima 86 I did recently". Also "Hi, thanks. These tyres work a treat, I m using them on my Lima n gauge class 31 s...of which I have quite a few".

 

However, evidently they don't suit Farish or Kato models because the depth of tyre is deeper than the wheel flange - the inside diameter is spot on for Farish class 47, 50, 55 etc, but the outside diameter is a little too large.

"Excellent , better than the Lima tyres."

Fishplates to suit Hornby Dublo  

J52A

J52B

J52C

J52 - Fishplates / rail joiners to suit Hornby Dublo. I got rather fed up with cannibalising my poorer track to find fishplates to fit the coarse rail profile of my 3 rail track, so I've found some that fit. They do fit tightly though, so you'll need to carefully tap them into place, and that's a good thing because it means there will be excellent electrical conductivity. The photographs show my first attempt. You can see the before and after photos, and the fishplate before and after it's been fitted. I've also shown it fitted on 2 rail track. £6.20 for set of 10 fishplates delivered (other quantities can be supplied). Track not included. (Several equivalent items are usually available).

HORNBY DUBLO SERVICE SHEETS and EAGLE CUTAWAY DRAWINGS. You can click here  to go to a page elsewhere on my site where you can find useful reference material:

 

All the Hornby Dublo Service Sheets are available for you to copy - save on your computer

or print them out - if you don't have the excellent Hornby Dublo companion book (Foster). 

 

Also, the "Eagle" comic had many really interesting big drawings of all sorts of railway operations in the 1950's, just the right vintage for Hornby Dublo. I have taken lots of photos of these, and, since they don't appear to be anywhere else on the internet, have published them as well. They show how the locomotives, equipment and operations worked in a straightforward way, usually using cutaway drawings. If you haven't seen them before, I

hope they give you as much fun as they did me.

 

These are all large and detailed images, you will find them all by following the above link.

 

 

** Equivalent item note (Several equivalent items are usually available). - in most cases, the exact item in the photograph will be the item supplied. However, in the case of small pickup components, screws, etc, one is normally so similar to another that there is no point in photographing them separately. Where marked, an equivalent item will be supplied rather than the exact one shown. Photographs of the specific item to be supplied will be happily supplied on request.
