Re: Scalefour North Cancellation

Not unexpected news really, and probably the correct option given all the available options.

Finances would have meant I wouldn't have been able to make it either way. But still a shame to miss such an excellent show.

I'll look forward hopefully to next years show.

Re: 7th Chris Kedgley Skills Day

A very nice day and a great chance to learn a few things and so on.

I can't always get to the skills days as some are too far away, but this is the best I have attended yet.

Thanks to everyone involved.

It's my wife's birthday on the 28th and when I 'booked' my layout for this year I was anticipating the date to be a week later. I think I've got away with it - but it's costing a spa day for her and our daughters! You will come back to happier wife and daughters at least though as they'll enjoy you...

The one from Hannants looks rather useful. They tend to have a wide range of items that might be of interest beyond aviation modelling, so the site is worth a browse.

Re: Harton High Staithes inspired Layout

Have had a slight redesign (nothing drastic) and changed A5 turnouts for A6.5 turnouts to ease things a bit. harton_v29-sketch.png harton_v29.png It looks a bit odd at the top right where the cassettes are, but in reality only one would be in place at one time, and 2 are higher than the other one.

Re: Harton High Staithes inspired Layout

BR 1/146 welded 21T hoppers were introduced in 1952, and the 1/142 welded 13T hopper in 1949. The 1974 date relates to those hoppers rebuilt by Shildon with welded bodies to a new design https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/brhuckbolt21t . Thanks for that. I think Hatcher refers to the ncb welded as b...

Re: Harton High Staithes inspired Layout

It looks very interesting. The combination of three different electrifications is attractive. How high is your staith above the river? IIRC, the RL Harton High Staithes were quite high up, certainly too high for a bank down to dock level. The latter - which I like, BTW - is more like Harton Low Sta...

Re: A shunting plank - Now Harton Collery inspired

It has been a bit of time since I last updated this topic. In that time myself and Natalie have been busy doing research on the Harton and track planning. We've come up with a potentially viable track plan following efforts in Templot and using boards and templates over them. Below is the Templot Sk...

I should have said that it was the H I was interested in wheels wise.

I can't recall what the hornby axles are, are they 2mm? I have 2 of them that will need converting.

What is the price per set?

Re: A possible new P4 wheel source

Inserts for BFB wheels might be of use, with the forthcoming Model Rail Class 12 shunters, the SR/Bulleid ones had bigger BFB wheels.
