Re: Brecon & Merthyr

I don't think that there are any available at the moment. However the Welsh Railways Research Circle recently launched a range of transfers for Cambrian Railways' stock see http://wrrc.org.uk/online_sales/transfers.php and it is proposed to extend the range to other Welsh railways including the B&am...

Well, high tide will be at 08:58 but it's all changed since you abandoned us Bill. Millions of pounds have spent enclosing Crindau Pill with the sole purpose of preventing Little Mill's baseboards being swept away on an ebbing tide.

If you can work that one out please let us know.

Re: NAGNAG Open Day Sunday 4th March 2018

Good question Philip, In our history the good burghers of Abergavenny were dissatisfied with the N&W line being so far from the centre of the town and pressed for a town-centre station. Wishing to ward off the LNWR the GWR responded by promoting a nominally independent company to build a short b...

Re: Double-sided tape recommendation

Thank you all again I must admit that differential thermal expansion is something I hadn't considered. Gauge widening doesn't really concern me - i reckon that 20 degC temperature rise would only increase the gauge to 18.86 mm, similarly absolute length increase isn't a concern. Differential expansi...

Thanks for your your suggestion (and the spur to look at SN176 again), i'm a bit worried though that I'll be heavy-handed and turn my nice flat aluminium angle into a roller coaster.

Double-sided tape recommendation

We need to attach aluminium angle to acrylic base plates to make up some fiddle yard cassettes (á la Chris Pendlenton vide MRJ Issue 27 1988) so I'm looking for recommendations for a suitable double-sided adhesive tape. Ideally one that isn't going to fail after a few years.

Samhongsa GWR Pannier - conversion to P4/S4

Prompted by a member of NAGNAG I exhumed from my attic a Samhongsa GWR OO Pannier, which I bought in 1981 for the huge sum of £69 thinking that it would appreciate and I would be able to spent my retirement in clover. However, since the real value of the little beasties is less now then when I bough...
