Support your local Model Shop!
So most of my needs are aquired at shows I attend or, mostly, at 3mm Society events.
However, needing some paint, I popped into a general model supplier, mainly aircraft. Historically they stocked a small amount of Model Railway items, mostly Hornby, but couldn't make it pay.
Hiding in a cabinet was a long forgotten 16V AC plug in transformer by Hornby which will do just right for operating the Dapol signals I recently reviewed and it only cost £7!!. This will save me having to have a jump cable to transfer 16Vac across the join. Also picked up some brass strip which will do nicely for the Hymek chassis- Goes to show mail order isn't always best. In case you are interested-Channel 4 Models, Charminster Road, Bournemouth.
