Etch primer and painting advice

Hi Just stripping the paint off a 1984 Roundhouse Lady Anne. I say stripping - it doesn't require any chemical stripping as it is just all flaking off leaving a lovely brass finish! Just a couple of questions if I may please... What brass etch primer are people using at the moment? Upol acid 8 ? Rec...

Re: Double Heading at Summerlands

Enjoyed that Chris.

Cheddar Ivers are great value live steamers, well built and reliable in my experience. They really benefit from the addition of a few extra details like yours.

Re: eBay madness

I see Simon (ANG) has another VOR for sale for £3250 so that must be their worth now I guess. Interesting to see the price of Tony Sant Finescale Engineering locos too - I'd certainly like to own one if I can save enough pennies

Re: eBay madness

Yes that is bonkers, If you wanted one they do crop up for about 2K, there's something quite clunky and wrong with Roundhouse's version but can't put my finger on what it is. John Please can you find me one for £2000 - it's a loco on my bucket list :D . I've watched 3 sell so far this year, all for...

Re: Merlin Leek and Manifold

Dads Merlin L & M has found a new home, probably the best place it could go. It is with a collector on the south coast who also has the Merlin 'Beast' and a Mac Muckley L & M. He is delighted with it. Sad to see it go but nice to see it being appreciated and being used regularly. We hope to visit on...

Re: Lets see your Pearse live steam locos

Good idea.....

Here's my Dads Auric awaiting a rebuild - hopefully it will be running in the spring. He thinks he has all the parts bar a bracket to hold the boiler to the chassis.

Re: Pearse USA style locomotives

Ian - Mike isn't the only one interested in Pearse build numbers. I would be very interested in build numbers for the Auric and Lew if you had an approximate idea? Btw - the Merlin L & M has found a new home, probably the best place it could go. It is with a collector on the south coast who also has...

Taw and Lyn pull away from St Just on a double headed service at the 'West Cornwall Light Railway'.

The track behind the train swoops away towards the 'Newlyn' end of the line.

Credit to Peter and Bruce Dawes for the location and Tony Rodwell for the first 3 coaches and Lyn.
