Re: RAILEX 2019

Seems packed today. Difficult to get a spot to view anything at the moment. Mike and Judith Edge have some very interesting plans for the months and years ahead. Am hoping they might produce scratchbuilder etches for the Gresley V4 and Robinson 8K chassis. They have an S1 0-8-4T on display; very im...

Re: Mystery apparatus at Radstock

There does not seem to be any connection between the point rodding run that seems to be unbroken between the rodding stools either side of the outlined device. Enlarging the image shows no evidence of a cable run operating the device and connected at different points to the device providing the addi...

Exactoscale Transfer Box - 4GB 112A

I have recently acquired one of these two stage transfer boxes, but unfortunately with no instructions. Does any member have a copy of the instructions that they could scan and e-mail or post to me please. Reasonable costs will of course be covered.

Thanks, SteveT

Re: Exactoscale Products

Good to hear that actions are underway to re-introduce the Exactoscale carriage and wagon wheels and associated components. If with time the loco wheels also return to production that would be excellent.

Is there any news regarding the Exactoscale sprung chassis/underframes?

Re: Kemilway.

Alan,

I always find it best to write and enclose an SAE, you will then normally get an invoice sent through within a week or so for payment, please note that the items you are after will probably not be in stock as they are generally made to order.

Re: Kemilway.

Since then I received an e-mail announcing the introduction of 14 new GNR, LNER, ECJS sets of coach etches that have now been loaded to the Kemilway web site...

Re: Livingston - West Lothian Starters Group

Microscope slide slip covers are incredibly cheap on ebay, £5 or less for 100 pieces at 24x50 mm. You can also buy microscope slides with a frosted (etched) panel that are good for coach toilet windows and kitchen car windows.

Still trading in August, I had a couple of coaches from Peter then and am awaiting a couple more from the same order. I find it is best to call rather than e-mail.

If you check the Warley exhibitors web site you will see there is a second Bachmann stand seperate from the main stand, this will be where the sales scrum will be.

Re: Finally Made A Start in P4!

Chris,

Can you supply a little more detail about your tiebars. What is the diameter of tubing you are soldering to the point blades, also what material are you using for the insulated tiebar itself that is glued into these tubes.

Thanks,

Re: About to order some bits - could use a little advice

If you are not buying point kits it would probably be worth considering buying the common crossings from C&L, unless you are confident in filing rail accurately along with your soldering skills.
