Re: Rumney Models

Justin, I wonder if it was related to the change in position of the body mounting springs on lot 3082, which were on the internal longitudinals, not the solebars? Lots 3232 and 3275 to the same diagram reverted to external springs but the brakegear sets for one [or both?] of these lots could alread...

Hi Colin,

Yes all the chassis can be purchased. They can be found via Rumney Models. I will also be at Scalefour North in a few weeks and Scaleforum in September.

Re: Starting From Scratch - SGW meets Inglenook

In the search for the simplest possible method of springing buffers, plastic or white metal, may I suggest it is preferable to drill right through 0.5mm first. You will find it is quite practical do this by hand with a drill in a pin vice(for methods see below). So long as this first hole is accura...

Re: JJNewitt's Wonderful World of Wagons

Many thanks for the replies gents. I've sent you a PM Philip. I'd got it into my head that Eillen's only did wire down to 36SWG which is the smallest I currently have. The 41SWG stuff could prove to be useful.

Re: Fitting W irons

Since the ‘nuclear’ option of staying true to the prototype in every last detail remains unattainable, usually scuppered by the things that don’t scale - like gravity, or the properties of readily available materials - we all have to choose compromises. If 4mm/ft leaf springs behaved as predictably...

Hi Noel,

I wasn't aware of the articles by Peter Fidczuk. I'll have to try and seek them out! Those ratios for wooden bodied minerals are a useful guide, thanks for sharing them. I'll have a look through MRJ 151 as well.

Re: JJNewitt's Wonderful World of Wagons

Those figures are useful Justin, however those of us a bit older(!) remember the series by Don Rowland which said you needed 400 mineral wagons for every 4F (or thereabouts). I keep looking for the 400 minerals whenever I see a 4F, in vain. I think Don's article fell on deaf ears ( I don't have any...

Re: Fitting W irons

Until the wagon is built you have no idea where the axles will be in the w-iron, because of the springs.[/list] So it seems to me that building the wagon, resting it on the assembled w-irons, and checking the height of the buffers against a know marker, e.g. a buffer height gauge, is a lot more pra...

Re: Fitting W irons

Bill - I accept that floor heights vary (which was my main point), but if the geometry of the W-irons is constant, what is the following dimension for a 13.8mm buffer height? I don't see the relevance of this. The buffer height depends as much on the deflection of the springs as the dimensions of t...
