Re: Wadebridge Light Railway

George, could you not go up to the bottom of the windows with the green and see how it looks then. I think it could be because the IP are two compartment and they look compressed compared to your other coaches. If by painting with the green to the bottom of the windows doesn’t look right, you can a...

Re: Rusty Chain Couplings

Well I was disappointed with the water only and just the same with adding vinegar. I did just try only vinegar, but Anne hated the smell of it. So I did what Tom suggested, I did leave them a bit longer though, they started glowing red :roll: :roll: Here they are, the top two needed some more heat o...

But the technology has moved on a lot since I was told. Now I can hear a lot better….though I may have to turn them off when the Grandkids come at the we...

Re: Help with track

Hi Rik,
