  4. HaggisRoll says:

    nice vid. Well done. Mind me asking what the work mat is your working on?

  5. Good job man I'm rooting for you

  6. Well done, Vince. Great video. Love the parts where you fast-forward through the cleaning (excellent job) and the assembling with classical music. So therapeutic to watch. I hope it sells well on ebay. Here's cheering for you. Now I'll have a look at Tronics' video.

    You did a cracking job on that Vince and your Def going to make a profit on it, so smooth working now, well done πŸ˜ƒ

  8. Hi Vince just seen your video. Well I might be able to help you here. As I have a broken homer Simpson doll thing that sings but doesn't dance, this is why it's broken. I will be selling it on my eBay shop very soon. If your interested then let me know. As i think this is a great fix for you. It's not complicated at all. And I think you will fix it and sell it for good money.

  9. Great video and I love the painfully honest sales pitch on EBay. Brilliant all round.

    The reason the locomotive has two pairs of pickups is, in addition to being a bit of a failsafe against gunk on the tracks or wheels, also because that way it can pass over momentary breaks in the track, such as ones created by points with a non-powered crossy-overy bit ("frog" in railroad terminology) in the middle of it. A loco with only a single pickup could stall on one of those.

    Great repair, looks like a good deep clean was all it took. Looks like your auction's got a lot of interest in it. As someone who sometimes buys old miniatures on ebay, good job with the detailed photos showing the true condition of the piece, a lot of sellers could learn a thing or two from you on that front. Good luck with the challenge!

    Yes you did over pay for it I would have paid a tenner at the most for it you live and learn but great fix it vid though and now I think it’s worth between 25 to 30 pounds so you will definitely get your money back at least.
