Have fun Ben but do stick to the instructions and read them at least twice or you may end up with problems (Yes, you know how I know that!)

Re: Coach gangway connectors

Here are a few shots of the Masokits gangway as fitted to my Ironclad brake. The brake end is latched closed and the other open. They are fiddly but worth it, connect to each other if required and they perform well over crossovers. I think the look is worth the effort compared to the Branchlines ver...

Re: Boston Frodsham

Nice work Mike.

After seeing the layout in the flesh at S4um North I recently found myself with an hour to kill in Boston and so visited the swing bridge.
I had a wander around the control building and can see you really have caught the prototype well.

Re: Construction of a Test Track

Hi Colin, Another way round the fishplate issue is, where insulation is not needed, to file a small V in the rail ends so the cross piece doesn't get int he way of expansion. I can't remember where I got the idea from but it solved my issue of the rail ends chopping the fishplate in half and the hal...

Re: A new lever frame design

Just to confirm Terry's comments on the robustness of the catches the NAG group have one on our Scalefour stand which goes to local exhibitions and is as good as when it was built despite many children, and heavy handed grown-ups, thrashing the levers back and forth!

Re: Help on Radius's

Hi Dave,
I've been watching this interesting thread develop and noted your concern about the width of the station baseboard. Could it be two parallel boards, one purely scenic, behind the station? It's a bit unusual as an idea but in terms of weight and movability it might help.

Re: Southern 8' Steam Bogies

I've used Bill Bedford units for most of my stock with good results. They are available from Eileen's without any cosmetic frames so your original plan should work. You might need the secondary springing units as well but they are easy to retro-fit.

The SEMG is very helpful on coach sets if you follow the links from the Bulleid page suggested above to the spreadsheet half way down the "Sets" page. I use this as a reference for all my sets as it summarises information from a number of sources.

Re: Kernow Beattie Well Tank to P4?

Hi Bill,
It looks to me as if the frames are the same but your version has a cradle for the coreless motor to make it fit the original. I've attached a photo of mine for your info.
