More 3d and a Medfit.

More activity at Padgate works. 2019-02-04-20-31-09.jpg 2019-02-04-20-28-20.jpg This Medfit has those wonderful 3d brakes Guy Rixon produces once more - in this case, the RCH 10ft variant. Easy to use and they look fantastic. The vacuum cylinder and the buffers are from Dave Franks' LMS range The ki...

Re: Screw Coupling Protocol

Thanks Will. I guess it will be 'horses for courses'. The screw couplings on planned fixed rakes can be sized to suit best running, whereas links that are frequently coupled / uncoupled need to be easier to loop over the hook as you suggest. Iain - like the idea of using pencil leads. I ended up us...

Re: Screw Coupling Protocol

The long etch is useful for that added length. A purest might wish to us the short mind. I do not spring the coupling as I simply do not find it necessary on my stock. Running stock on Mostyn, we have tried to keep to basics and that appears to work - sprung drawbars "can" be a source of t...

Re: Rixon Finescale Models

Hallo Guy
Are you open to further suggestions with regards to brake gear?
Might I suggest some RCH reversible shoe items in 11ft and 12ft wheelbase.
The 10 ft ones I bought area eliciting some great interest from others I have shown them to.

To inform members that Mostyn managed to win the "Best Layout in Show" award - humbling and yet it shows all the hardwork is worth it. And to think that the concept for Mostyn as it is now, was first conceived in Wakefield some eighteen years ago. I think the "Lads" had grand tim...
