Re: MItchell 45xx battery/radio control

The original ones are shown as "new", whereas the cheaper ones are "used".

Re: RAILEX 2019

I spotted Kelly going round the show and thought to myself that you would be having problems seeing many of the layouts. That was, of course, also a problem for the many parents who were having to hold up their children to allow them to see the trains. I thought that many of the layouts were set at ...

Re: Seeking a source of track and back to back gauges for a model of a 3foot 6inch gauge system

I see that, in 4mm scale, 3ft 6in equates with 14mm (or roughly 14.2mm) gauge, so 3mm Society gauges should work for the trackwork, but I don't know what are the comparisons for flanges etc. I have gone a different way for modelling French metre gauge trains; I am using P4 trackwork, but modelling i...

Re: A new lever frame design

I see that Howard's website states: "Locking Etches for 5 levers cost £34 and are available from the Scalefour Society on-line shop - there is no requirement to be a Society Member". However, earlier in this thread it states that they are available only to members, and they are not in the ...

Re: Templot

Thanks John and Martin for your replies. I followed the link in the original post and landed on the map of Edington Junction with a screen like Martin's, but in the "Explore geo...." screen; the "Find Place" box was available, so I entered Great Torrington into the search box and...

Re: Templot

Thanks John, but I still can't find the scale, neither on this map nor on the Torrington one. I tried IE as well as Firefox, in case it wasn't showing in Firefox.

Re: EM wheels on 18.83mm track

I have done so and I am no wiser as to the problem to which you are referring. If you mean that Martin should not post the same message here and on RMWeb, why not? There will be people who see only the message in one forum and presumably only S4 members can see the messages in this forum. OK, some s...
