Re: Mike G's catch up.

All looking good Mike. Seeing your D1791 coach reminds me that I have a Brake version half built sitting there mocking me. LOL. Looking forwards to seeing your coach finished.

Keep Safe.

Re: Wagon Identity

Hi Guys and thanks for your input. Disappointed that the brown wagon is a GWR one, however, I'm pleased that the grey one is from a more favourable. LOL. I want to get decent replacement chassis/brake gear for them, so if anyone knows what's available please let me know. My period for my layout is e...

Wagon Identity

Hi All, I trust that you are all keeping safe and well? I was routing my draws {storage not grundies before anyone asks} looking for some small project to distract me from what I meant to be doing on my layout, when I came across a box of old wagons. Had a quick rummage through {again the box not me...

Re: Scale Clocks

Hi Ted, thanks for your replies. It was watching your videos on Southwark Bridge that got my mind a thinking about a scale clock. But as you say it's a bit overkill for what I need. A great idea anyway. Had a quick look through your new website, some lovely images of the layout. One I like is of a T...

Re: Scale Clocks

Hi Nigel and Will and thanks for your response. This all sounds like it's getting too complicated for what I need. To be honest I just fancied a small clock built into the top of my control panel to balance out the amp meter I've had to install at the bottom of my control panel. Watching the videos ...

Re: Scale Clocks

Perhaps I should have made myself more clear Daddyman! What I meant was a working clock telling the time in scale. So you can operate from a working train timetable. My old ZTC controller had one built into it.

But thanks anyway.

Scale Clocks

Does anyone know if anyone produces a scale clock on any description? I thought MERG may have done but no. I quite like the type on the Southwark Bridge layout I saw on their layout.

Re: South Pelaw Junction

I use the Masokits Tie bars and found them very good and reliable {so far}. As Julian said they are very robust as they are all soldered and the rail are soldered them. To connect them to the servos I soldered thin brass tubing where the little tags are on the tie bar and two brass rods/pins slide t...

Re: Edington Junction

Hi Phillip., no worries. I found under timber sleepers there's still some noise transfer {hopefully the will reduce with ballasting, scenic etc} but under plastic sleepers it's very quite. In fact when I first started running trains I had to double check that the trains hadn't derailed when they wen...

Re: Edington Junction

Hi Phillip. Yes that's correct rubberised cork from C&L. It's 3mm thick off the top of my head, if it's any different I'll let you know. I've not had any issues with it. Some of it has been down for about two years and had no lifting or bubbling.

Re: Edington Junction

Thanks Neil and Steve. I pinched the basic idea for my control panel from a layout called Kerrinhead. Although at some point I was going to need a control panel it wasn't a job I planned for at this time. When my ZTC controller started burning out motors I need to replace it and as I was planning on...

Hi All. As I was hoping to have the 4f done and dusted {HA!} I decided to start my next loco, a Johnson 1p 0-4-4 Tank Engine. This will be based around a Craftsman kit and the Rumney Models chassis. The Craftsman kit I got off of evil bay and it came with a set of Ultrascale wheels. As this is a rou...

Re: Brassmaster 4F The journey

Since my last update the 4f is finally been painted and numbered. Just as I sprayed the flat coat the weather turned very hot and I think it's effected the finish {not the fuzzy stuff inbetween the BRITISH RAILWAYS, that was me not wearing gloves handling the tender} but in some areas it's a bit mot...
