Buyer be­ware – ‘Mazak Rot’

Model Rail (UK) - - Workbench -

Be care­ful when buy­ing a sec­ond-hand Hornby ‘31’. Avoid any of the ear­li­est batches that fea­tured in­fe­rior al­loy chas­sis that have since ex­panded and frac­tured, lead­ing to burst plas­tic bodyshells. I’ve dis­cov­ered that two of my mod­els have this af­flic­tion and I have yet to try and sal­vage them – an­other project for the fu­ture!
