Re: HGLW loco tweak

OK. So things are progressing, albeit slowly. After looking closely at the photo of the prototype loco, it was apparent that the cab isn't central and so, I decided to move the cab on the HGLW loco back by around 15mm. This required a considerable amount of hacking with razor saw and Stanley knife....

Re: Questions: Inside Frame Skip Wagon - Operation and any drawings

Hi Phil Many thanks for the reply. I also found this drawing of a mine cart at Wikipedia that shows contact of the bucket with the edge of the wheel tread at the reinforced points when tipped. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:30-cu.ft.Minecar.jpg It just felt strange that the bucket would hit th...

Re: Questions: Inside Frame Skip Wagon - Operation and any drawings

Thank you for the reply and ideas Phil. The Fowler's definitely have stop plates. The Bagnall doesn't seem to have anything. The only thing above the the chassis looks to be the bolts for the axle boxes.

Thanks again for your thoughts

All the best

Questions: Inside Frame Skip Wagon - Operation and any drawings

Hi All Can anyone help me with these two questions on inside frame skip wagons? There is a ton of info and drawings I can find on outside frame but not inside frame. 1.

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - Video Library

Really glad you did this build Rik to show what it's like. I have exactly the same kit unbuilt. Is this the version with the motor/gearbox and wheels? Just so I know that is what I can expect it to perform like.
All the best

Re: Drawing of Corris 4 wheel coach

Aha. Yes, thanks for this Rik. That's the new style four wheeler. I'm looking for the late 19th century version which has balconies at either end. Really appreciate the reply and hope all is well. Kind regards.
