Loco repairs - HELP!
« on: June 10, 2017, 09:51:59 pm »

I'm not sure if this is in the right place - if not, please tell me.
Gents, I have an emergency.
I've dropped one of my locomotives and damaged it. It's a Graham Farish 4F. It fell onto a laminate floor, the tender came apart and there's now two wires visible between the tender and the engine. I found a small piece of plastic I'm assuming came off the loco, but the eyes, the eyes . . . . . . I can't see well enough to know the full extent of the damage!
Can anyone tell me of a good, reliable repairer, please?

Brilliant! Thanks, Kirky.
Have you used them yourself? Do you know what they're like in terms of time taken, for example?

Bob Russell is an ex Frish employee I believe. He is very very experienced. However, I am led to believe that he does get a lot of work and you will inevitably be in a queue. You could always phone him though. If he can do the repair, it will be a good repair.
Yes, I have used him and yes he has lots of work on. In fact I've visited him at home, he only lives ten minutes away from me. Always very accommodating but as I say, he has a lot of work on.

Dobwalls, Martin. Steve here, I came down to pick your brains not long ago.
Apologies Steve, I realised that after I had gone to bed.
Sounds like a professional repair is your best bet.
