Re: Railwells 2013

I like seeing good layouts at shows, regardless of what scale or gauge. I understand that Society shows should showcase what members of our society can achieve, but I'd rather see good modelling from other gauges and scales, than poor modelling in 'our' gauge. As for taking photos, poor David man's ...

Bearings for Masokits Sprung W-Irons

Hi chaps, This might sound like a very simple question and I'm fairly sure of the answer, but would like to check before ordering. In John Hayes The 4mm Coal Wagon he refers on pages 66 & 67 to Exactoscale pin-point bearings when assembly the Masokits Sprung W-Irons. The photo in the book sugges...

Hi Gordon,

Ah I had forgotten the High Level tender. Is there a link on his website? (I did look, but only saw it mentioned.)

Mainly Trains GWR 3500 Chassis

Hi,

Is it possible to compensate the Mainly Trains MT100 - GWR 3500g tender to fit the Bachmann/Mainline tender top? Or is there a better product suitable for the tender body?

Kind regards,

Nick.

Re: Tim V's workbench

I must admit I had a really good running 45xx in 00 and couldn't get it to run smoothly in P4 using Gibson wheels. So decided to put it back and build either a Comet chassis, or wait for High Level, which might not happen, and replace the whole thing.

Re: P4 wheels and suitable 'P4-able' kits - Directory

Hi Knuckels, I can't really help on the kit front, although I would, where possible, use Ultrascale wheels for my locomotives and stock. They are much more expensive than Alan Gibson wheels, but I find them a better product. My Gibson wheels, which have steel tyres, have rusted, whereas Ultrascale u...

Re: Wanting to convert some Bachmann 12 ton ventilated van

Pragmatism trumps lazy in my book, either way, it almost always comes down to how much time there is for anything.... ;) I've found that it is quicker and the running quality is better with a complete chassis rebuild, rather than trying to faff about with the rockers on an RTR chassis! ... perhaps ...

Re: Wobbling Wagon

If the W-iron rocks freely and the wobble is up and down, the culprit will be an eccentric wheel. Hi Russ, I've swapped the wheels over and it isn't any better. The wobble is up and down, but I've just noticed that the rocking w-iron is falling to one side, rather than sitting in the middle. So I t...
