Re: RAILEX 2019

Just a bump to say RAILEX is this weekend. Good quality layouts and probably one of the best shows for specialist traders too.

Re: RAILEX 2019

We are just getting the bus owners to check the timetable then it will be uploaded, it is not just the new Chiltern timetable we had to check but who was playing in some football related thing that had an effect on the trains too.

Re: RAILEX 2019

Yep the travel on the vintage bus is free, although tickets and programmes can be purchased on the bus for entry to Railex cash only, you can also buy tickets and programmes at the stadium cash or card or advance tickets paypal or card on-line via our web page. hope this is clear.

Re: RAILEX 2019

I have updated the first post to include all the layouts.

We should be able to take card payment on the reception desks this year but not on the free vintage bus which will be cash only.

Re: Any Wheel and size!

A flared boss is very easy to do it is one of the parameters I can change see the two versions of the same wheel. Barcley wheels again no problem I simply change the variables in the spoke shape.

Re: Any Wheel and size!

That is really helpful, is Evening Star the only 9F with the weird second driver? The Centre driver is really different to the others, I can do the variants if people really wanted them! The wheel generator will get the wheels 98 percent there I may have to add things like fillets later but this is ...

Re: Any Wheel and size!

On some wheels yes others no, I can just add in what angle bevel I need and it is there.

The 9F wheels have a bevel.

Re: Any Wheel and size!

I have added more variables into the wheel generator, I can now add the flare of the spokes into the hub and also the shape of the spokes are also adjustable and are oval or egg shaped in section.

Re: Any Wheel and size!

I have refined my wheel creator and can now pop in most variables to produce most standard spoked wheels. The Peckett wheel I added the balance weights and adjusted the spoke profile to a more square profile in a shorter time than it took to write this post!

Hi Chris

what I may recommend now may not be on my recommended list by September next year, plus new places open landlords change etc. I do produce a list for Railex each year which I update before posting out.

Re: Scaleforum 2019 - the social side

As I live in Aylesbury, some places can be good one year then after a change of landlord are not too good while other places get better. Normally the Hop Pole is always good as is the Kings Head and the Millwrights is better than it was a few years ago. The Broad Leys, The Bell and Woolpack at Stoke...

Just a late minute update, due to unforeseen circumstances the layout Ellemere has had to withdraw, the space has been taken by Mega Point Controllers.
