Re: First steps in track building and P4.

I recently purchased 2 tri-angular gauges from P4 stores. I had to return one of them because it was impossible to fit the rail head into one of the legs. Jeremy Suter very promptly replaced it. So I now have 2 gauges that work, but there are differences. The two legs at the "pointy" end o...

Re: Turnout construction - Question here please.

Hi Richard,

Thought you might like to see the component parts:-

The important part is the "bobbin" which looks very similar to the "bobbin" part depicted in the first photo that you posted from Tony's track building thread.

Re: London Underground Q38 Surface Stock Trailer

Thanks for your replies. For some reason my intuition leads me to believe that because the spring of the axle with 59% of the load is shorter (22mm) it will be stiffer than the spring of the axle with 41% of the load (27.33mm). If there two separate springs of equal length then I could understand th...
