Love the wagonette, perfect!

Looking forward to the FR carriage truck too...

Re: Southwold coach

Wow! That's really impressive Rik, it really captures the charm of the originals, and will look great on your line - how long before we get to see it with your Southwold tank and van? I've never thought of it before (maybe I've never looked at the originals closely enough in their original open-balc...

Brilliant, thanks for confirming Chris!

Steve, looks like I'll be taking you up on your kind offer, thank you!

Re: Whole Stick wagons for the Ringbalin Light Railway

Very nice!

Glad they run well, there's nowhere to hide extra weight if they need any help staying on the track!

I look forward to seeing them suitably weathered in due course...

All the best,

Andrew.

That's very kind, thanks Steve - I probably won't be able to check until next weekend now, but will PM you either way...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I did wonder about the height... Hmmm... Been wondering some more... Looking at the pictures here - https://www.festipedia.org.uk/wiki/Carriage_42 - and elsewhere, I think Chris Timpdon's got his proportions a little wrong. His passengers might be pleased, but I reckon he's allowed too much headroo...

Re: Grub screws

Good advice, thank you! I'll start with the wheels as you suggest (I'd forgotten about the grub screws on those), then contact Graham - I think it was him I bought the loco from c15 years ago, when his company was possibly called something else. While I'm testing I'll see if they fit my Russell's Sl...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I did wonder about the height... In the the well-known picture of a toastrack with 590 at Beddgelert it looks a little higher than the Pickering brake next to it, the latter in its cut down guise, of course. There were some drawings in SMT a while back which I based my one on, by Will Curry. I'll di...

Grub screws

Hello! As I mentioned in my Railway thread, today's run with my Regner Konrad was cut short when the flywheel worked loose - the grub screw that holds it in place had gone missing. It should be an easy fix, but I don't know how to identify what I need to buy to replace it. Can anybody advise on what...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Nice! Yes, I like the Fairlie shot too... Is that the Timpdon Hudson toastrack? It's very nice... I've got a half-complete scratch built one that I started over ten years ago but never seem to finish. I think I might turn it into a bogie flat (like some of the real ones were, featuring in the WHR de...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

I always do envy your line Andrew. That's very flattering, but I assure you you'd lose any envy you felt if you saw my little line! It's short, poorly maintained, and the operations are chaos... The camera really does lie in my case! Actually, I think that's another reason I like to post on here - ...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Hello all, To celebrate the Forum's survival, and to assist in keeping the thing alive by providing some content, I thought I'd run a train today, and take a few photos. As it's "business as usual" round here, with no particular changes envisaged, I thought I'd go for the most ordinary train I could...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Looks good Andrew! What did you use for the handle in the end? I got two of Phil's coal waggons, they're easy to put together but the rivetting is not my favourite part! Hello! The brake handle is just cut from plasticard - I'm surprised that he didn't include one like he did with the beer wagon, j...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Love it Andrew. Let's have the final work done photo please.... Thanks Rod! And yes, there'll definitely be a photo of the finished wagon - I kind of see posting a final photo on here as the equivalent of rolling a wagon or carriage out of the workshop for the first time. Except that my new rolling...
