Re: GRS Hunslet loco kit with rtr chassis

If I was in the market for yet another loco I would bite your hand off for this one! Unfortunately, I have more than enough to cope with, so it's not for me this time. However, I do have one of those GRS chassis and I agree it is a superb runner and very well made. The motor is rated at 12-24v but m...

Re: NEW FWLR LINE

Good to see you out and about again Rod, your garden looks very tidy and easy to manage, so very little maintenance required on the railway once installed. The bending down part is not the best for us 'seniors' so perhaps a small pit with steps down would be useful, if you can find someone to help o...

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

I discovered something today which I thought I would share with you all.... One of the 3D standing loco driver figures I have has both arms stretched forward, but not at the correct height, so.... as an experiment I tried to lower one arm by about 4mm in order to grasp a control lever.

Re: Coaches for Roundhouse Models

Since I first became aware of Jerry Irwin's kits I have been an avid collector, everything he produces is to the highest standard and at a sensible price too! I strongly suggest you watch his construction videos on Youtube before attempting the build, the chassis are a complex assembly which must be...

Re: Latest developments
