Supplier of small nuts and bolts

Just a quick query - conscious when I was fettling with the rc linkage on the reg at the weekend that if I loose any of the nuts/bolts screws that I have on the loco, I don't have any spares.

Where is a good source to buy a selection of very small nuts/bolts /screws to get some spares to hand

Re: A stream for the Elderbury & District Light Railway - FINISHED

Looks brilliant, Philip! Once the moss and groundcover takes a hold, it will tone down the starknss of the concrete. Your sump cover does look a whole lot more subtle than my upturned dustbin lid and will probably be a lot more efficient. I think this project is worthy of an article in Garden Rail....

Re: New quarry engine

Indoor shunting layout required for that loco :thumbup: Using Deltang that could run R/C as well. Yes - its funny you should say that! If we end up renting, that's the route I'm going down as a temp measure - Tony Hill's (now sold ) Melin Llechi is an inspiration - I have wondered about starting so...

Re: Trims on Radio Control

Thanks for all your replies - had a steam up at the weekend and managed to adjust the linkage length - the linkage has a screw end at the bottom which in effect tightens it up - this allowed me to put the reg at a closed position and get the grub screw through the hole and re attach the linkage. Chr...

New quarry engine

With no line to run, my stock building is key focus - I should really be just building wagons to build up the number I have BUT I do like a loco - so I’ve had a go at a Phil Sharples mini Jack kit - it just needs the electrics fitting and ready to go - including real crushed coal!

Re: Welcome to the CHLR

That's going to be fun! The option for indoor running seems like a good one, and I love the siding that runs into "the works", ie the workbench. It will be so satisfying to trundle a finish project off the bench and onto the rest of the line for a test run... That idea's not possible with my curren...

Re: Loading hoppers for the sand quarry

Stunning Rik - very impressive - you are the home of hopper loaders - I remember you built one a while ago based on a kit (Piko?) that featured on your blog and was the basis for one I built - how you have moved on now though!

Re: Welcome to the CHLR

Well - thought I'd share the trackplan - still no house sale so still planning, not doing - (grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :evil: ) Always hard to plan something without any reality to place it onto BUT it gives me a vision to aim for - the line runs end to end from one side of the garage ( towards the bottom of...

Re: Track Plans

Hi - I use PowerPoint - drawing lines and shapes and adding text and colour - I use it a lot at work so I guess I'm able to get lots of practice - the example below is what I have in mind for my new line once I can sell my house and by a new one - it shows a garage at the bottom with two stations in...

Re: Trims on Radio Control

Ok - this is a pic of a similar transmitter to what I have -- I think I use the LH stick for the regulator - so if I want to extend the travel of the servo, which bit do I fiddle with?
