Re: Grub screws

That's very kind, thanks Steve - I probably won't be able to check until next weekend now, but will PM you either way...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I did wonder about the height... Hmmm... Been wondering some more... Looking at the pictures here - https://www.festipedia.org.uk/wiki/Carriage_42 - and elsewhere, I think Chris Timpdon's got his proportions a little wrong. His passengers might be pleased, but I reckon he's allowed too much headroo...

Re: Grub screws

Good advice, thank you! I'll start with the wheels as you suggest (I'd forgotten about the grub screws on those), then contact Graham - I think it was him I bought the loco from c15 years ago, when his company was possibly called something else. While I'm testing I'll see if they fit my Russell's Sl...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I did wonder about the height... In the the well-known picture of a toastrack with 590 at Beddgelert it looks a little higher than the Pickering brake next to it, the latter in its cut down guise, of course. There were some drawings in SMT a while back which I based my one on, by Will Curry. I'll di...

Grub screws

Hello! As I mentioned in my Railway thread, today's run with my Regner Konrad was cut short when the flywheel worked loose - the grub screw that holds it in place had gone missing. It should be an easy fix, but I don't know how to identify what I need to buy to replace it. Can anybody advise on what...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Nice! Yes, I like the Fairlie shot too... Is that the Timpdon Hudson toastrack? It's very nice... I've got a half-complete scratch built one that I started over ten years ago but never seem to finish. I think I might turn it into a bogie flat (like some of the real ones were, featuring in the WHR de...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

I always do envy your line Andrew. That's very flattering, but I assure you you'd lose any envy you felt if you saw my little line! It's short, poorly maintained, and the operations are chaos... The camera really does lie in my case! Actually, I think that's another reason I like to post on here - ...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Hello all, To celebrate the Forum's survival, and to assist in keeping the thing alive by providing some content, I thought I'd run a train today, and take a few photos. As it's "business as usual" round here, with no particular changes envisaged, I thought I'd go for the most ordinary train I could...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Looks good Andrew! What did you use for the handle in the end? I got two of Phil's coal waggons, they're easy to put together but the rivetting is not my favourite part! Hello! The brake handle is just cut from plasticard - I'm surprised that he didn't include one like he did with the beer wagon, j...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Love it Andrew. Let's have the final work done photo please.... Thanks Rod! And yes, there'll definitely be a photo of the finished wagon - I kind of see posting a final photo on here as the equivalent of rolling a wagon or carriage out of the workshop for the first time. Except that my new rolling...

Re: A couple of cute visitors

what a weird thing to see on a Cheshire farm. My sister-in-law was raspberry picking on a farm in Somerset, and rounded a corner to find a wallaby sitting in the next row, munching away on the fruit. Apparently he lived in some sort of children's zoo on the adjacent farm but knew where there was a ...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Looking really good. I do like the worn painted woodwork look. Glad you like it, thanks - I thought it would contrast nicely with the "beer wagon" which is in a much better condition. I've finished the paintwork since posting and added some additional strapping to the non-opening end - the super gl...

Yes you've remembered how to do it!
Welcome back, be good to hear from you again.
Grant.
I'll second that! There were some interesting developments in progress last time we heard from you - and update would be most welcome!

All the best,

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Hi all, Here's a quick coal wagon update, which is now nearing completion. In this picture it's had its paintwork distressed, strapping added and final gaps filled and awaiting painting: FR Coal wagon 3.jpeg I've just ordered a FR-style number plate from Wood Valley Works, so once the strapping's to...
