forwards/backwards RC

Morning all. I had a rare chance to steam up my 'Owain' yesterday. As usual she steamed up ok and was quite happy to gallop along towing a single carriage but would barely move in reverse. It seemed as if it wasn't getting enough steam in reverse. In fact it felt as if the reverser had adjusted itse...

Re: The Rylston Light Railway - work still in progress

Top quality modelling. Real attention to detail. I like the 'white ink' notes on the photos. Nice touch.

Might be worth looking on-line at your local ones. We have a small independant not too far from us who don't normally do web sales or delivery but have started doing it for the duration and are now snowed under with orders!
We have one of those, and very handy they are too.

Re: The Afternoon Mixed

After a difficult and trying day it was a pleasure to sit with a rum and ginger and watch the bucolic railway activity on The Afternoon Mixed. Cheered me up immensely. Thankyou.

Looking at the inside of that wagon no one would guess that is was made from styrene!

Re: Cog Railway for the garden

I enjoyed the video of Leas lift in Folkestone. Sadly not operational at present. Will it be resurrected? We travelled on it( in the upwards direction) one day about 25 years ago. The car was fairly full and as we waited to go up there was silence and an air of nervous tension in the car. My 5 year ...

Re: Edith locomotive

Simple and affordable steam locos are always of interest. Not only does it allow existing garden rail types
to experiment with maybe designing their own bodywork and 'kitbashing' to improve their skills but may entice others into the world of small scale steam.

16mmngmassoc

Am I the only one that thinks the subscription procedure for the 16mm assoc is not fit for purpose?
Surely it cannot be beyond the wit of man to provide a simple online purchasing system involving Paypal.
I have neither the time nor the inclination to wade through their rambling instructions.

I had the same problem with something . I think it was an IP coach kit. Bent an axle.
