Anything related to the garden railway world that is not catered for in another board
I think that may have been Dougrail of this Parish, but on another forum or website.BorisSpencer wrote: ↑Mon Oct 29, 2018 11:57 amOn one of the Facebook groups I frequent several months ago someone was looking for "expressions of interest" for some Mamod bodywork overlays.
They were to be of brass, and I think they needed five or six confirmed orders before they could proceed.
There were 2 types proposed, one with extended tanks and running boards, and one with extended cab sides suitable for operation with a tender. I was interested primarily in the former and if I recall were going to be £60.
Suffice to say nothing came of this, I assume the person never got enough interest to proceed. (I do hope if it was someone from this forum I haven't offended with this post).
I like the sound of this idea. Mild steel is a known quantity so far as problems and advantages are concerned, and as such is rather more appealing to me than some of the more exotic material that one hears of from time to time.

Traffic Pattern? What pattern? Spuds out; grain in, but cattle, sheep and passengers are a lot less predictable.
I will see what I can come up with. I think my first effort will be a diesel loco in 7/8ths though as that is my preferred "size" (I hesitate to say "scale" as I like freelance designs).
1:12 really appeals to me and I have even contemplated making 50.8mm track to model 2' railways. 16mm is a bit fiddly.Although there is more material involved in building to 1:12 scale it's not prohibitive and stuff like fasteners etc. that don't look out of place are more readily available. Perhaps I should start a thread about preferred scales?
