Re: MDC G2110 Big Hustler G scale loco kit - pics added

Thanks for the pictures.
That looks like a really well detailed kit with a beefy motor block.
Can I justify having such a loco on the PLR???

Re: MDC G2110 Big Hustler G scale loco kit

That looks excellent, Andrew.
I'll have a word with my signwriter mate in the village to find out how he protects his handiwork.

Re: Tytherington Light Railway

Welcome aboard, Harry. That's a mighty fine railway you have there. I'm glad my musings (and 3D files) have been helpful to you.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how it develops.

Re: Roundhouse Silver Lady

I suppose the implication was “offers invited”. There is little to be gained from posting a price just to satisfy curiosity whilst those with spare cash and the desire to own a super locomotive could have contacted me. But I have had a satisfactory offer so all is good! Does that mean it has been s...

Re: Comparing Geared motors

I've noticed there are low-power, medium-power and high power versions of the Polulo gear motor:

I bought the 12v high power version, assuming it would be more powerful. I wonder if the low power versions run better at low revs??
