That brake van looks great, you certainly managed to get the old and decrepit look.

Re: corrugated iron

The SE Finecast is a bit coarse for 4mm, too my mind.

Re: RAILEX 2019

It was an excellent show and even the girlfriend enjoyed it. The only down side was being stuck at Exeter for 75 minutes on Monday afternoon due to a train breaking down at Totnes.

As soon as Dave has recovered from this year's show and announced next year's, I will book my hotel.

Thanks David

I can now plan, the transport arrangements to help Steve on Dewerstone, as I have a long standing prior booking in London on Friday night.

Re: Show attacked

The total raised so far is now in excess of £81000. A fantastic response, I must say, but I can't help wondering if such an amount will become a liability in being able to use the funds in an accountable and transparent manner. A news piece today stated that the event was for a charity, the initial...

Re: Joggled Stockrails

Julian,

If you're building GW turnouts, the timbering is square to the centreline, what Martin describes as 'equalized - incremental ' in the timbering munu.

If you're building something else, , then forget I mentioned it.

Re: Joggled Stockrails

Hi Julian, That's the way I read it. Having played with 12ins to the foot GW turnouts. We had a preserved railway director trying to tell us it was over gauge we explained to him that this was correct for GW switches and everything was ok. I don't think he really bought it, but we weren't about to c...

I would agree with the cautionary note about Pauk Dunn (CooperCraft), if you want the bits only buy directly from him at a show.

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

Jeremy,

I think that this kit will be a true Rolls Royce amongst kits with the level of accuracy and detail it has. It's also well thought out and should be relatively straightforward to build.

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

Having looked again at the photos, I think it might be for the safety valves and is only on one side. I hope that Jeremy is going to add that feature to the kit.

Anyone got any idea as to what the oval hole in the roof is, just infront of chimney and is it also on the other side? I have not noticed it before in photos or drawings.

Small diameter rod as formers, maybe?



Almost certainly, but to do it before or after the rolling the main body of the tank, is my dilemma! I can foresee difficulties with either approach.

Just received my 1361 kit. Same here. Instructions refer to a pre-rolled saddle tank, but there isn't one 'cos this is strictly DIY.

Phil, It would be finger trouble, you did the 'place in line' twice, but both times for the same image, hence the other image just appears at the bottom. You can just go back in and edit it.
