Re: Progress with Slattocks Junction

Am I alone in being more excited by the excellent LMS carriages, rather than the beautiful locos? Wonderful rake Mike; any notes on the diagram nos, and kit origins? I spotted some LNWR carriages in that formation.

Rod. I've been looking through my books but no success so far. A nagging feeling says a Michael Hale publication.

Re: Another six monthly update...

Mike, I noted the work on Little Mill Junction on the Newport MRS website and with progress on the NAGNAG site, and downloaded the information on the trains through the junction. I note that you didn't have listed the various workings to and from ROF Glascoed. I have a copy of the Neath - Pontypool ...

Re: Making a start - Irish 5'3" P4

It seems that between myself, Philip and John, you may have just flushed out the makings of an Irish Area Group. I think there's a way to send private messages via this site if you want to get in touch. (I'll look into that one.) Alan, there are a few of us, three are three S4 members in the Ulster...

Re: Making a start - Irish 5'3" P4

Hello Rob, Don't let anyone say you cannot build a large P4 layout, there are many (Mostyn, London Road to name two), then there is P4 21mm and for that there is possibly the best layout ever created, Adavoyle. Have a look at: http://www.templot.com/GNRI/adavoyle.htm. Martin Wynne is part of the tea...

Re: Warren Truss viaducts on a curve

Thanks for the replies. The film doesn't help as the views under the bridge were on the straight part. Yes my trusses are straight but support a curved deck. While measuring them is straightforward, there is a problem in that the pictures, poor quality as they are, do not indicate where the extra le...

Warren Truss viaducts on a curve

Hello, Nine years ago I started building a warren truss viaduct for the 1883 competition. I ran into trouble with numerous hurdles (house move, new job, etc) and except for some odd moments of peace making some track I haven't had a chance to wield soldering iron or saw in earnest since 2002. This y...
