I was running 2 motors on 8 rechargeable AA batteries (10.4 volts tested) initially and then a 6v SLA. and the problem was the same.

Re: IP wagon scale

Hi. If you can get yourself a copy of 'Wheelers Day' published by the Welsh Highland Heritage Group you will see some superb shots of WHR goods stock between pages 46 - 50 taken in situ in 1935 including brake van number 2. No sizes I'm afraid though. I am currently in the process of sorting out pla...

Re: IP wagon scale

Hi.
I draw out my own plans for making my NWNG stock. One method I use is to find a photo of an end view. Using the rail gauge as 2 foot I can work out the width and height and other details. From a side view photo, if I know the height I can work out the length and window and door dimensions etc.
