Has anyone tried one of these? They look interesting, though 45mm only is obviously a restriction for many

Re: IP Engineering Jessie rebuild

Hello-in February I put up a post you can see further down about fitting the new IP engineering 3D printed gearbox with brass gears to my old Jessie. It's a simple drop-in fit, correctly drilled for the retainng rod to go through, so if you have any problems with your gearbox, this is a simple solut...

Re: IP JESSIE

Hi-I'm aware of your Jessie,it looks and sounds great. I think the motor block was a great idea, so if this doesn't live up to expectations, I may go that way too. Can I ask if you are behind RC Trains? I wanted to order some stuff but I can't open the website

Rolling Roads

What's your experience of rolling roads? I recently bought a new Bertie and thought it would be a good idea to start it off by running it in a bit on a rolling road, as the users manual suggests that the loco may tend to be a bit difficult to run slowly for the first couple of times. I bought a roll...
