Re: GER (Norfolk) single arch under bridge

All very odd - the closer one looks, the more questions are raised. The arched end shows some settlement damage, almost to the point of preventing the door from moving; the left arch support (concrete?) seems deeper than the right. The loading platform has timber above and below. (The model entrance...

Re: GER (Norfolk) single arch under bridge

Oh my! That last photo shows a far more complex variance in levels of brickwork than I had imagined from the earlier shots. You may have to resort to laying one course at a time on that apex. Can you cut single string courses? That would then make it easier to fit trusses right up to the end, which ...

Re: High level kits 14" Robert Stephenson Hawthorn

The post title and High Level say it's a 14in RSH 0-4-0ST. The video link shows "Robert Stephenson and Hawthorns 0-4-0ST Sir Cecil A Cochrane." The Tanfield site list has: "SIR CECIL A COCHRANE is an 0-4-0ST with 12 x 20″ outside cylinders, 3ft 1in diameter driving wheels." but i...

Re: Non-working Exactoscale couplings CH001B

I don't know about that 'model', but googling found a diagram of screw couplings that seems to match your description of parts - see http://www.exactoscale.co.uk/4mmrollingstock.html.
There have been a few sold on eBay, perhaps with instructions, so someone might he the original paperwork?

Re: London Road RSU on Ebay

Well, somebody wanted it real bad!!!
£160.95 it went for! (+ £22.00 delivery)
At that price, I'd rather have a new one.

Re: London Road RSU on Ebay

Only four days to go and now up to £75.00 ....Perhaps I should let the seller know it should be listed in both categories so he gets a good price ;) In that case I'm pulling out. Who are we to interfere with this process? Surely that's why eBay is such fun. One day a bargain, the next someone pays w...

Re: Class 60/56 P4 conversion

And a question for the rest of the Alan Gibson catalogue; why are there two prices for all of their products? Can't seem to fathom it! Yes, I'd wondered the same, so I went back to the Terms of Trading: To assist customers in ordering two prices are quoted in the price lists - the first price (in i...
