I am interested in contacting anyone, preferably close to where I live, who could help with the maintenance of some older OO scale locomotives manufactured by Triang-Hornby, Dapol, Airfix etc. In particular I am looking for help in replacing broken or worn wires and ideas to reduce the noise of models which run quietly without the body but are more noisy when the body is attached!
