graeme king a4 type front for a hornby p2

Post by COLNAGO » Mon Jan 02, 2017 12:23 am

Good evening everyone

Can anyone help me in finding how i can purchase a Graeme King A4 type smoke box for a Hornby P2.

I am new to this forum but have been looking in for a long time, many years .

In my pre married days i use to live on the up side of the line from Gospel Oak to Hampstead Heath, seeing the cross - London freights with Hornsey 0-6-0 tanks and wd's often getting a push up the hill by the following Broad Street - Richmond electric, good old days..
All the best

Mick Wildey.

Hi Mick,

My attention has just been drawn to your message. Those smokeboxes were meant to be available almost 2 years ago but I got sidetracked in rather a big way! I'm back on the job now and I'm just working on the mould for the Earl Marischal front at present, with the A4/Bugatti type of P2 nose to follow. I hope to have something to offer within a few weeks, although demands on my time from my real job are heavy and variable at present. Fingers crossed anyway......

Hi, not sure if i have done this correctly. I need to contact Graeme King, re his resin conversion to convert the peppercorn A2 into the thompson A2/3
Thanks
Mike

I’m sure this will have been brought to his attention by now, or will be shortly. We will both be at Warley this weekend so I shall check for you.

Hi Mike,

If you post a few more entries on the LNER forum you'll acquire the ability to send and receive private messages too, then we can communicate properly. It's highly inadvisable to post e-mail address in this widely accessible part of the forum unless you want to be inundated with spam, so I wouldn't suggest that short cut to easier communication. I'm afraid it's no use me giving you my phone number as I don't have enough hours in the day to keep answering calls, so I largely don't bother! 90% of callers are time wasters from spiv-run call centres anyway....

Thanks for your interest.

Graeme

PS: I'm also "gr.king" on that other railway modelling forum if you find it easier to use the PM system on there.
