I was wondering if anybody can help me with the following :-
I have just got back into model rail after an absence of about 10 years and have resurrected my old Triang - Hornby stuff purchased in the 70's.
I would like to add lighting to some of my coaches and was thinking of mimic-ing the method of adding an electrical pickup strip to rub against the axle of the coach wheels. As most of the wheels are plastic I realise that I will need to change these to metal ones.
My question is, are the currently available metal wheels from Hornby (in packs of 10. Why 10? Most rolling stock wheels are in groups of 4) fully insulated from the axle or are they half insulated so that a pick up could be gained from one of them.
If Hornby aren't suitable, any suggestions on what I can use.
