Well, it's been a while but I have been looking for information on Charing station on and off. I recently re-joined the MRC of which I was a member of 30 years ago. In their library I found a MP book that has a track plan of Charring station and yard. Diligent viewing of Google maps has enabled me t...

Re: Please help me find info, Charing station...

Thanks Rod,

I will make a point of visiting Ashford library and having a look, good idea. If you do have some plans at home I would like to see a copy of them when you get a chance to dig them out.

… I edited the subject line!

Ralph.

Fast track - I'm a bit confused...

Hi Guys, Three of four years ago I purchased a selection of track making 'samples' at a visit to Scaleforum.. Up until that time all our track-laying had be done using Brook-smith Ply and rivets. Having been away from the hobby for quite a few years we were amazed at the advances made in track const...

As a first attemt at a coach I am about to convert and super detail an Airfix GMR auto trailer (Diag A30 - I think?) to 18.83. What bogies and wheel do I need and where can I get kits. I could also do with a good drawing. The OPC GW coach book is not much help on this model. I have been looking at t...

Cosmetic chairs for Brook Smith track construction

Hi Folks I have been away for a bit (about 25 years, maybe a bit more) and the method on building track seems to have improved no end. I remember some talk about introducing some white metal chairs just before I left the hobby. Now I find myself years later with lots of Brook Smith sleepers and rive...
