Re: CCT #1 “Robin”’ The Rising of the Phoenix .

Hi Mitch,
Looks like you got enough running to familiarise yourself with the engine, and put a few running in miles on it.
As you may have guessed Friday and Saturday are when all the action is happening.
Did you happen to call in to the GSSU on Saturday afternoon?
Grant.

Top job on the dome coz it looks just like it has a bead around the edge to me.

pretty pleased with how it came out!
And you should be Ted, the 3D tank came out well and the bike spokes look good. Every modeller should have some, very handy things at times.

Re: Wild Rose ~ Quarry Hunslet

Domes can be interesting to make and yours look great. Have you soldered a piece of brass wire around the edge as a bead ?

the gauge does have a tendency to fill with steam,
Andrew, if that is happening, it's more than likely that the bourdon tube is split. Although I have soldered one successfully it probably indicates a replacement is required.

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Andrew, I can so relate to your problems, I run quite a few radio controlled boats and it wouldn't be the first time I have arrived at the lake to realise I have packed the wrong transmitter or wrong battery pack. Those rather large Regner pressure gauges do seem to have sticking problems if not reg...

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Thanks Tom,
Mitch,
The 4 wheel wagons are scratch builds of timber and using axle box castings and "W" irons from Argyle, that are no longer available.

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Thanks one and all for your comments, Andrew, With time, I now realise a few short comings with the appearance of my pass. cars. I don't think I'd go about it the same way again, trouble is they're a matching set and to do something different means a whole new set. While not impossible, what I have ...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Hi Andrew, I like the effect of individual planks, Individual planks do look good, but you could try putting a piece of thin card under the end of a few planks so they sit at a different level, or even between the edge of one or two to accentuate the gap. The van and open certainly look good to me, ...

Re: Wild Rose ~ Quarry Hunslet

Hi Dave, As soon as I saw that timber I thought Merbau. Then you came up with Kwila, had to look that up, to find they are one and the same. It does mill nicely, made good keels and floors on boats too, I've heard it referred to as swamp teak. Boy! that Hunslet is coming along since I last saw it. F...

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Thanks everyone for your kind replies, they are appreciated. As Graeme mentioned it is a new van, and the goods roster guards are very pleased with the update from the old 4 wheeler. I needed a van more suited to running either way, as opposed to the combine type, and the new van is in the older liv...

Greetings all, Spring has sprung on the LNR, so a few pics. from today's runs showing the winters growth (which won't be around long if forecast temps are right for this coming summer.)
