Re: Scaleforum 2015

Agree with the positive comments. Excellent show. Very good trade and layouts. Space, relaxed atmosphere, learnt a lot, chatted to many friends. Bought my belated birthday present, stocked up on other stuff. What's not to like? To all those who couldn't/didn't/wouldn't make it - you missed a lot. Th...

Re: Quartering 3mm axles with GW Models Wheel press

45609 wrote so that the push came from further out radially and through the tyres. Pushing at the rim will be better for squareness but I would worry about the force being transmitted through the spokes to the centre. I take it that you have had no associated problems such as deformed spokes? Steve

Another chance to visit - Open Day Sat 5th May

If you missed the earlier Open Day, come along on the 5th and see Clarendon (P4) and other club layouts, two of which will be demonstrating DCC. Open 11:00 to around 16:00, tea & coffee available, and maybe cakes!

Re: Loco Suspension, fitting CSBs

I don't believe you 'have' to understand the mathematics, just follow the published charts on the CLAG site or if yours isn't there just request one. A fellow member of L&WMRS used the spreadsheet and had no trouble.

Re: Rose Grove for Scaleforum

I was there 10 days ago, but didn't see any yard lamps - were they on the old Up Grid? The turntable bridge is nearly complete - Trevor is assembling the mudguards, VERY fiddly / intricate!, and I have just added the buffer stop for the blank exit opposite the line from the coaling headshunt. The 2 ...

Re: Rotary Valve Gear Crab

Very nice, as always from you Morgan. I'm interested in the torque reaction idea. I would be interested on how this works, as I was wondering if, by using a fairly large contact area (the strip/slot), friction under heavy torque would restrict the axle movement. I have seen another idea which was a ...

Re: Eridge signals

A refinement of the PVA idea is to colour the PVA before application using ordinary ink. It worked well on the Walford Town signals (about 24 years ago which is my excuse for forgetting the source of the idea).

Re: Rose Grove for Scaleforum

Well, we are trying to do that, scouring hundreds of photographs, and asking people who were there (much useful information has been offered by ex-Rose Grove fireman Jim Walker). I look forward to meeting you, and you can judge for yourself- though very much remains to be done, including the buildin...
