Re: eBay madness

Rod mentioned that this particular Blanche does not have radio control. That can be quickly and easily remedied without much further outlay. Another factor that has to be considered is the lining, in that it has been lined! Geoff Munday's recent retirement from LightLine has created, I feel, a bit o...

Re: Track Sweeper Wagon

So that the bottom of the brush is moving forwards, to lift debris up and hopefully clear. If it goes the other way the debris is pushed back under the wheels and sets it up for a spectacular entry into the "epic fails" thread! Thanks, makes sense ... I did say it may be a silly question. Has anybo...

Which way does the brush rotate?

Re: Joining code 200 bullhead to other stuff

My other thought was to solder a short piece of one type to the end of the other, does anyone know if I’d be able to join nickel silver and brass in this way? That's the way I would do it. Two short lengths of rail (one of each type) placed head down end to end and then silver soldered together, an...

Re: Loco name-plates

Last set of plates for myself were ordered from MDC on 7th July, and delivered on the 25th. And, of course, there is nothing to pay until they are delivered.

Re: Loco name-plates

Please, do not use glue! So-called SuperGlue creates so much heat during curing that it will create a paint blister. Epoxy has a bond to the paint stronger than the paint has to the metal. Removal of plates fixed with either will almost certainly cause paint damage. Fitting instructions here: http:/...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

This picture shows a turnout in Longmont, Colorado. The main line is the turning to the left, with straight on being a little-used branch. Note the check rail on the left immediately in front of the point blade, so placed to stop flanges on the right-hand wheels from "picking" the point blade and at...

Re: eBay madness

But selling "The Guide to 16mm Modelling" is being a bit cheeky don't you think... Errr... why? It is the member's personal property to do with as they wish, surely. All of my SMTs and other Association paraphernalia (except for the Bulletin whose glossy colour pages go in the recycling box ... grr...
