Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

Indeed. I can still remember the Emett railway you exhibited at Warley many years ago. I kept going back to it. All my friends couldn't understand me as usually I am known for prototypical accuracy as much as possible but I thought it was the best layout there by far.

Re: The Charlwood Light Railway (CWLR)

Looks good to me too, and very interested in seeing the painted locomotive. Vac bags are also what they're known as on the East Lancashire Railway. Draincocks are also known as the taps and some refer to the injectors as pumps!

Excellent. For me it's all about having fun and that looks fun. Although it looks very cold!

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

I store my rolling stock in wooden trays with the compartments lined with felt, similar to your boxes. To stop things rattling around when being transported in the car, I make spacers out of wood or ply and pad them with felt. Graeme I have used this method for over 30 years for my OO stock without...

Re: RWLR - Robin Wood Light Railway

I haven't double headed single handedly, but have double headed my Lady Anne with another Lady Anne seen at 9:26 into the following video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhWGIasy_dQ Is double heading with Deltang equipment easier? With my current R/C sets I don't have enough hands to double head on...

Re: Changing of a Roundhouse Silver Lady - Steamy Clare

Hi Joe, I wouldn't recommend doing what I did as it isn't perfect and tends to spit water out when steaming up. There are now suppliers who sell water top up plugs that will allow you to fit a Lady Anne dome: https://www.thetraindepartment.com/roundhouse/roundhouse-parts/ Anyone know of a UK suppli...

Excellent project!

I just noticed the reverser. I hadn't been able to see a Quarry Hunslet reverser before. It looks like a screw type. I wonder why
The reverser looks to be on a quadrant in the pictures I can see. Perhaps PH or others familiar with the Quarry Hunslets can clarify?

Re: Run time

In my experience run time will vary according to a number of factors. Ambient temperature, whether or not warm or hot water is used to raise steam. How high or low the gas is turned up (for gas fired locos - obviously) and the load. I only worry about running out of water before gas. I always try to...

Re: Accucraft Baguley Drewery 2018

Dealing with Accucraft directly now as it out of dealers hands, convenient for them. Let's hope the replacements they send are of better quality than the originals supplied. Under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 it is the retailers responsibility to sort the matter out. The retailer must repair or repla...
