Re: Aylesbury (Town)

It has been a while since an update on Aylesbury, although quite a bit of the trackwork is laid wired and with point motors working. Hopefully in the next few months the remaining track and platforms will installed.

The fit I can get on an axle is similar to that of a Gi...

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: 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!
