Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Its great being able to get to run something isn't Andrew after all the flipping rain we have had. I have a problem with my bridge at the moment so a full run around the line isn't possible for now, but I will do a short video of a battery soon hopefully. :thumbright:

Re: It's a Sign!

Hi Andrew, When my Dad used to get his wagons sign written the guy used to chalk out the sign first and then use that bit of stick that has a piece of cloth wrapped around it. He had many different sizes of those because some letters were really small, like the bottom of the doors on my Dads cabs w...

Re: Chassis thickness.

I agree with Aaron, bracing is a must now and the width like Phil.P says the overall dimensions will hurt you when building it. You could put thicker right angle corner pieces to make the dimensions better and stronger. No harm in looking at that mocked up and seeing if it helps, I think it would an...

Practice, practice and more practice Drew, like anything else the more one does something the better and easier it gets, or should be. I fail miserably most of the time with somethings I do :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Nolwyn Valley Tramway

Well done Drew. My little help thread has succeeded in doing what I wanted it to, to get more members to make videos and show off their lines. Yours is a little bit short your right :lol:


But hey, who cares, you have done it and I like the speed of the loco. Nice clear shot.:bravo

Re: Yr Hen Felin & Yr Orsaf Newydd

Can I make a suggestion Phil. Why don't you try with some 3 or 5 ply full length, you then can put wood screws countersunk every few inches or so and then fill in the small gaps with wood filler or something that will be ok to use outside. For the ramps at the end I would score the underneath about ...

Re: Yr Hen Felin & Yr Orsaf Newydd

Those coaches are very very nice Phil. Yep a live steamer pulling them would look great, but what you have looks the part I think, but what do I know, others with far more experience in these things might suggest something else, who knows. :dontknow: But remember Rule 1 Phil, (it's your line and if ...

PDF CLOSING

Read this morning from Leanne Farley, that she is having to close the business, which is a real shame. They produced some fabulous models and they are going to be sorely missed. I for one have had loads of help from Peter and those that took over when he passed. There maybe someone who is willing to...
