Re: TVT - First Turnout and Infrastructure

Out of interest Graeme why have you chosen not to use your tree bark covered raised beds for the trackwork?

It would look nice having the track running around the bushes you have in my mind.

Re: Regauge wheels

The wheels are solid steel and pressed on.

I will live with it until the wagon has to come apart. It only has an issue with the Peco SM32 shorter radius points SL-E691 and 692.

I found it very difficult to watch if I am honest.

Re: Regauge wheels

Unfortunately, I need to increase the gauge so the wheels need to be pushed closer to the axle boxes.

The wheels will not slide on the axles at present. I guess they would need heating up to get them to move but that will result in burning the wooden chassis and melting glue.

Re: They Shall Not Grow Old

I think the locos were petrol but without Googling and pretending I am knowledgeable then I would not know what exact make and model they were.

The documentary certainly made a lasting impression on me...

Regauge wheels

I need to set the back to back wheel gauge correctly on this wagon without destroying it in the process as I cannot remove the wheels. At the moment the wheels ride the check rails of my points:
