    Stuart, thanks very much for your interest – I’d also like to thank you for your interesting build articles in the Newsletter, esp. your adaptation of the Hornby Caley “Pug”.
    The LRM hornblocks have a circular extension, over which fits an etched bracket – a photo is worth a thousand words, so I include a shot of the instructions and fret, below. I have toyed with the idea of soldering a pivot directly to the top of the hornblock. In hindsight, it would have been far easier to leave the powered axle in a plain bearing, but I hadn’t anticipated the lack of clearance, and had fancied a stab at using CSB suspension. This is very much a learning exercise for me. Cheers.
