Re: Another Wild Rose Project

Enjoying this thread guys thank you for all your input.

It is always worth explaining as much as possible as not everyone is as experienced as you think.

Re: The Charlwood Light Railway (CWLR)

That's the kind of sidings I wanted to achieve but I didn't have the space. Magnetic uncouplers and Slomos make it all possible with live steam!

Do they use Deltang components or is their RC stuff custom made?

Glad it inspired you.

I don't come from a practical family so I appreciate where you are coming from.

Paul I think you may be worrying too much if your kids have jumped about all over it then it should be fine.

Trains in this scale are not heavy after all...

Re: Sand hopper

That's the first plastic wagon I have seen with wood painted that achieves that elusive silver colour, well done.

Re: The SOL project

The prototype body looks fairly simple to replicate so it should work well to house everything you need.

Re: Ballasting track

The gloss finish didn't disappear when I used SBR, however, I was using fish gravel so some of the stones were polished so that could be the reason for the shine.

I was going to try and spray a matt lacquer over the ballast but the railway is lifted now.
