Re: Brassmasters J94

Hi Jim, I have bought J94 wheels recently from Alan Gibson. The first set I asked for replacements for the Hornby J94 which my son Dave has - they look pretty good, but have the unusual diameter of axle which Hornby use. :? The last time I bought another set from Alan Gibson, but forgot to ask for t...

Re: Wagons for South Pelaw Junction

I would just try a straight wheel swap and see if they run without any compensation within the bogie. I have plenty of such like bogie wagons running without trouble and know of many coaches that run without any compensation. If you have any trouble I do have a way of compensating which works and on...

Re: Queensbridge Road Wharf

Do what you can when you can has always been a motto of mine- there will always be something to do, this building is coming on well and I love the colouration in the original as well as the design, Very nice.

Very Nice Jim, :thumb If it comes with the full motion, even if it does not operate that's great. I have just been making dummy ones, the main part you notice below the boiler is the large balance weight which moves according to the setting of the gears for forward and reverse motion. In DCC and usi...

Hi Jim, :) I do not have a Brassmasters one, but am completing a trio of J94s at the moment using a variety of chassis, there are little variations in each of them, but would happily take some photographs if you are just checking what should be there. I took photographs of the real thing operating a...

Hi John, :) I have no electronic background at all, but I am adding in some to my layout being a MERG member I like to learn new stuff, it does keep your mind exercised. I prefer electro-mechanical items as normally you can see a fault quickly and hopefully rectify it at exhibitions if necessary. If...

Hi Tony :) We have always made a habit of doing this as there are not many layouts covering this period or area for that matter.

Re: Burntisland at Alexandra Palace 2019

Just to mention, :) There were other roundhouses on the North British. The best known was St.Margarets in Edinburgh. There were two there in NBR days. One belonged to the North British Railway and remained there through to BR days. Unfortunately it lost its roof during the LNER period and it was nev...

Re: Crab Comet conversion

I do agree with what you have said about t...

Hi John, :) these are superb and I assume for the colliery tip. Are they compensated or not from the underside it is not entirely clear?

Hi John, :) I did see the EM version of South Pelaw Junction at Newcastle this year and thought it superb in all aspects. Anyone remembering the area from the 1960's was bound to be impressed.
