Re: Scaleforum 2019

Somewhat eccentrically I purloined one of the chairs in the hall and made a point of watching Burntisland and Pulborough from a seated position as well as standing .... this may be old hat but was a revelation to me. Standing is a good position to get an overview of the layouts and to be able to ge...

Re: Ilkley Engine Shed, West Yorkshire late 1950s

I assume the next job will be to add some water? :D

Looks like it works well. Is there room to add a man to push it?

Autumn is fast approaching and this one will bring a bumper crop of new releases from Rumney Models. Instead of leaving everything to the last minute as usually seems to happen I thought I’d let everyone know what will be coming their way in a few weeks a little more in advance this time. Further de...

Re: 1P 0-4-4T chassis by Rumney

Hi John, The cirtical dimension for the spring carriers on the 1P bogie is 4mm. This is the vertical distance from the axle centre to the bottom of the hole in the spring carrier onto which the spring wire bears. If you need to make new carriers then use this dimension.

Frame Spacers for P4 and EM

As part of the steam loco chassis commissions that I've recently been undertaking I've some analysis in CAD using EM and P4 tyre profiles to derive the amount of sideplay necessary for a given minimum raidus (I usually design them down to 1m) and therefore set the frame spacer widths from this.

I have a number of Comet Mk1's with the Comet brass 'slab' soldered onto the underframe. I was hoping that your design might be adapted to allow me to use them without having to un-solder this big brass washer, described on the Comet site as 'Threaded coach bogie rubbing plates, bolts, nuts, pair' ...

Re: Flexi Chassis an Appreciation

Iron or steel solebars are narrower than wooden ones, I suggest. It appears that a decision was made to maintain the overall width of the chassis frame measured over the outside of the solebars, which implied a slightly greater width between the inside verticals. Why this was done, I don't know. Th...

Re: Flexi Chassis an Appreciation

I think the crank in the W-iron on steel frame vehicles was introduced to bring the W-iron axlebox guides into the same position as with timber frames, the timber solebars being thicker they had need of a crank in the W-iron. I was going by the drawing here http://www.norgrove.me.uk/history_files/S...
