Hi people, well the testing of the new CSB sprung BR tender chassis went very well with both the BR1 and BR2 chassised tenders coupled together and a train of 40 wagons behind all hauled and pushed and shunted by a CSB'd 8F also with a CSB'd tender. The test session lasted two hours and not one derailment or other problem, single slips, double slips three way points were all negotiated with no problems, I just love these CSBs. :thumb

The Tender chassis kits will be available before Christmas then I might look at the BR3 chassis.

With the news that Slaters are re-doing the 4mm NER hopper wagon people have been at me to do decent buffers for it so, the patterns are made and in a mould to multiply up ready to make a production mould. With luck they will be released at Workshop Wise in Stannington Newcastle on Tyne.
See this thread from Rmweb//http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/97686-new-stuff-from-lanarkshire-models-supplies/page-23#entry3318724:-

The new LNER coupling rods are arriving today, still to proof-read the instructions then package up. LNER B1, V2, and A3/A4. Both fishbelly flute and the later straight flute on the fret.

Managed to cast quite a few hundred NER hopper wagon buffers yesterday so they will be available at Workshop Wise in Stannington, Newcastle this Saturday. :thumb

They will be on the website for everyone next week.

Forgot to say, the new etched coupling rods will also be released at the Workshop Wise event, what are they? .........

LNER B1, LNER V2 and LNER A3 which will also fit the A4 and a few other big Gresley locos.

They all have the alternative shape of fishbelly flute or straight flute as per the changes over the life of these locos.

Hi all, good news, all the new items are up on the website now.

B053 NER hopper wagon buffers for the re-released SLATERS kit, available as a pack of four or a bulk pack of 20 (five wagons) also available drilled to take standard sprung heads like 51L or MJT.

CR13/14/15 Scale size coupling rods for B1, V2, A3, A4. All can be built as original fishbelly flutes or the later replacement straight flute, The A3 rods will also fit the Peppercorn A1.

A new range of tools suitable for our products including the very fine EXPO HSS drills on individual cards or sets of eight from 0.3mm to 2.0mm.

Oilers with plastic compatable oil,

EXPO German made cutting broaches which are very nice indeed (not the Chinese copies).

Industrial quality 145 degree solder wire which I've been using for years.

Selftapping screws as supplied with our chassis kits for fitting to plastic or metal bodies, complete with the correct drill.

EXPO's own Thread lock glue for fixing wheels on axles, gears onto shafts and even tiny worksplates.

Hope you find something of use and of course any other suggestions would be welcome.

Please remember to go to the home page first and check the date which is now showing October 2018

All the best,

Dave Franks.
