Re: Phosphor bronze wire for buffer springs

Bob,

You do not mention what gauge wire you are using but I know that Roger Sawyer (aka Eileen's Emporium) will probably have what you want. I have some 30swg and 33swg phosphor bronze wire that I bought from him not so long ago.

Cheers....Morgan

Re: Rotary Valve Gear Crab

Tony, Dave, Thanks. I should have said encouragement and spare time. A looming exhibition deadline for Brinkley usually gets me motivated. We have one coming up in October so watch this space. The Crab tender is running on a Masokits universal springy beam underframe. The loco will be suspended on c...

Re: Rotary Valve Gear Crab

Thanks Tim. The pickups will be part of a removable busbar/axle keep arrangement. This has been fabricated but is not shown in any of the photos that I have posted so far. As you noticed I have used some thick copper clad for some of the frame spacers. The only reason for this is that I have a load ...

Re: Ex-Metropolitan Peckett 0-6-0ST

Hi Jeff,

That's a really attractive loco. The LT livery, even unlined, really does look the business. What are the Mercian kits like as a P4 proposition? They do a number of interesting industrials that I have always found rather tempting.

Morgan.

Re: Brinkley Baseboards

Hi Robin,

Congrats on your first posting here. After pestering you to show people what we've been up to I guess I only have myself to blame for appearing in the pictures.

Cheers....Morgan

Re: Eridge signals

Hi Rod, I think your signals look great having seen all of them posted on RMweb http://www.rmweb.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=14951. As you probably know getting them to work reliably is half the battle. Although you haven't posted the pic here I really like the idea you had for making the op...

Re: Rotary Valve Gear Crab

Thanks Howard. Just hoping posting it on here will encourage me to make some progress with it. Has been in this state for nearly a year.... :oops: Below are a couple of pictures that hopefully explain what a torque reaction tab is. I suppose it could also be called a torque reaction bar but in this ...

Re: ex-SR Hampshire Unit (2H)

Hi Dave, I have recently put Kaydees onto a rake of Bachmann Mk1s. Ted Scannell of the CLAG gave me some useful advice after I had looked at their webpage. http://www.clag.org.uk/kaydees-mk1.html For my installation I used #711 Kaydees although #714 will also do as the only difference is the length ...

Re: Midland Bracket Signal

Hi Allan,

Thanks for the kind words. Having seen the signals on Burntisland first hand I was very impressed with all the lattice work. Your experimentation on illumination sounds interesting. I will be trying it on the next signals I build.

Cheers....Morgan

Midland Bracket Signal

I thought some might be interested in the construction of Brinkley's Down Home bracket. P1030428.JPG The posts are made from real timber. The wood used was purchased from an aero modelling shop. I believe it is lime. It was perfect for the job as it is, strong, light in colour and has a nice fine gr...

Rotary Valve Gear Crab

Here are a few pictures from my workbench. Apologies to those that may have already seen these on RMweb. Although progress has been slow, most of this work was done over a year ago, the locomotive will eventually become 42825 as it would have appeared circa 1954 with original Lentz valve gear and sp...
