Re: Bachmann 1P Johnson 0-4-4T 58072

Tim/Philip, My conversion is fairly basic. I have replaced the Bachmann wheels with Alan Gibson drivers and pony wheels - 5'2" drivers with 1/8in axles and 3'0" 2mm axle wheels for the trailing bogie. First problem is the model has 3mm axles on the drivers. Each Bachmann axle is held in a ...

Re: Combined Weighbridge

Hi Steve, The short answer is yes. As a retired Trading Standards Officer I have tested a great number of weighbridges during my career including road/rail ones. The long answer depends on which period you are looking at. ICI on Severnside had combined a road/rail weighbridge which had a concrete de...

I thought it might be. I've been told I need one of myself for Barrow Road but a younger version.

Great video Geraint. Obbekaer has come a long way since you started on the buildings - when was it that I first saw them? at the Watford show in the mid 90's with Middlepeak?
