Re: Bristol Barrow Road

Yes, but of course, P4 will never work... ;) Steve But of course we know it works so that's all that matters. I've built a fair few P4 locos for people, locos like Royal Scots and WD 2-10-0s down to little 0-4-0s and as far as I know they are still working. There will always be people who poo,poo, ...

Not the Bring & Buy at Scaleforum 2019

As you will have read in Scalefour News 213, the Society has recently been left a sizeable collection of models, tools and materials in the will of a deceased member. Much of it will be offered for sale through the Bring and Buy stand at Scaleforum 2019. There are, though, some particular items - tw...

Hi Ben

Have you considered contacting Kernow Model Rail Centre to see if they do spare parts from their LSWR Gate Stock?

Re: Professional 4mm model-maker (coaches) sought

This is a genuine request from a non-member, Colin, who is involved in a group of 4mm modellers working in various gauges (see https://www.bloodandcustard.net/). The person contacted me to ask if I knew anyone who could build coaches for them. As a result of a very friendly conversation, I suggested...

Re: Narrow Gauge Group

I’ve received an enquiry from a past member asking if there is an active 4mm Narrow Gauge Study Group within the Society.
So, if there is, or you are interested in resurrecting it, then please let me know.
Many thanks

Re: Colin Parks, Scalefour member

Very sad news indeed.

My condolences to Colins family and friends.

Colin joined the Scalefour Society in 1979 and was a very active contributor on this Forum. I am sure we have all been enriched by his involvement in our hobby.

Rest in Peace.

Re: Southern N class Mogul research

Thanks for the responses Rod and Noel.

Making more sense now.

I’ve corrected the 1954 dates, should have been 3/12/54 - 22/12/54, my typo!

According to the records I’ve found so far, this loco had Tender No. 3071 from new.

Having said that, the colour of daylight varies a fair bit. In summer it is much yellower than in winter. Maybe Burford basks in perpetual summer sunshine?
