Re: Upgraded MSS loco - expecting too much?

When i bought my Roundhouse loco earlier this year, the recommendation were the loco would require "running-in" under a light load for a couple of hours. I found that the pulling power was not as good as I was expecting, especially up gradients. However a couple of weeks ago I put the heavier load o...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

A I have had a play with TinkerCad on my Chromebook and can export an STL file to a USB stick for printing. .....if only I read all the posts more thoroughly.

Re: Ringbalin Light Railway

I have used the odd piece of artificial grass, in that odd place where I haven't planted, but want some green to control. In the UK you do need to manage it though, as seedlings will sprout through it.

Re: "Black Friday/Monday"

Have to admit, I got fed up with emails from dealers/sellers, and i have unsubscribed to just about all of them, if I want something I will just "Google" it for the best price :)

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

There are some errors. Firstly the harness around the horses chest has a gap just in front of the girth. Secondly the collar is at an angle.

The price has just gone up from yesterday - only by about £4 though I think. I'm tempted too..........
I think that is because the price is in dollars, so varies according to the exchange rate :)

I have tried to point out that visitors far outnumber members and appealed for them to join, so we hav...
