Recent FB purchase
Thanks for the info on the scissor lift Bijo. Sure hope you can get the elevator working.

I am all good, super, just been busy and less in the plarail game than before.

Bijo, is your set complete? Mine is missing the newspaper bundles and 2 of the mail sacks, if memory serves.
my website address has changed:

I believe so. It has 3 of each.

The newspaper bundles and mail sacks, however, were renamed by my son to 'presents' and 'sausages' respectively and he won't accept them being called otherwise Big Grin

"Presents and Sausages"  I got a good laugh out of that Smile

Recent FB £5 pickup. We had the green tracks with the 'coded messages' before but not had a train that was using them. So when I saw this I messaged the seller immedately. When we unpacked it to play with it, it turned out the train was broken and despite the motor turning and passing the movement to the wheels, putting the train down resulted in something skipping and it not going forward.

Took it apart and after all the cogs fell out Big Grin I found the drive axle's cog was snapped and loose on the axle. I could just superglue it but there's a gap between the teeth and it won't run as it should. For now I've used another axle from some spares I have. Still not matching the blue colour of the engine, but will get that sorted soon. For now, it works.

Besides the gear problem which looks like you took care of, that set looks in great shape and a steal at 5 pound sterling. Excellent find Bijo. Smile

A complete Talk 'n' Action Magic Rail Set?! I'm surprised how many of those tend to turn up. The thing with the gears is a very common problem with those engines compared to their normal counterparts. Ripley802 (one of our members) specializes in Talk 'n' Action and made several threads on how to repair them, but here's hoping your solution will last long enough. Either way, it was worth finding the complete set like this for only £5 and on Facebook.

Side note: I like how those mats give the illusion of fields by having bright shades on one side and dark on the other. Great presentation.
