Re: J94 CSB chassis questions.

Good evening Simon,
With regard to the High Level Jig then, yes, the holes are to offer options for best fit. There's a useful tutorial on the High Level Site at: http://www.highlevelkits.co.uk/jigpage.html
Have fun!

Re: Kernow Beattie Well Tank to P4?

Hi Jeremy,

I got them from Bill some time ago; you remember, that time when going to exhibitions such as S4um could happen!

I'd PM him if he's not lurking watching his name come up.

All the best,

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!
