Re: NEW FWLR LINE

Great to see you've got things up and running, Rod. 28 mins sounds like a good long run for a live steamer to me. Rik Thanks Rik. It's been a bit of full on 18 months that's for sure...She could have gone on for longer, but like I said my finger was getting tired. I still need to drive her with som...

Re: NEW FWLR LINE (1st, 2nd, 3rd RUN UPDATE)

It's been sometime since I ran my Billy ("Patricia Anne") You may notice I have took the old name plates off. After Tom's maintenance on her and only finishing the relaying of the line on Friday, the rain stopped for Sunday. So after going to Fleetwood, it was a large fishing town in the North West ...

Re: Battery Connectors

That Tamiya connector looks at bit worse for wear. If you have soldering skills I suggest replacing them with XT30 or Deans connectors. Easily available from Ebay. I've always found the Tamiya connectors to be horrible - bulky and poor contacts that wear out quickly. Thanks Busted, I do have some c...

Re: Battery Connectors

Hi Rod, the white connector is a Tamiya connector as used on their range of RC cars, these should be available off-the-shelf from most model shops. I can't help with the others unfortunately. If you look at www.componentshop.co.uk and select Leads and connectors you will see a huge variety of types...

Re: set-track advice

Filcris is expensive Mike. Wouldn't 5mm to 9mm ply do. A 6' x 6' board would do it, you will have loads of room to put anything else on it too. And if you use Flexitrack, you can have whatever radius you need. It's cheaper and lighter. Are you going to be using it for a temporary extension, that can...
