Re: Replacing wheels.

So really the LMS etc coaches should be on 14.1mm wheels. Yet if I did that these coaches would sit above the other stocks couplings atm.

Re: Replacing wheels.

Just a thought I have had.

I have used the 12.5mm wheels on these coaches and they line up the couplings fine.

However I did notice that there are 14.1mm wheels available. Anyone know if these are for use on particular models?

Re: Replacing wheels.

They were a mix of plastic wheel on metal axle and full plastic ( no split in axle). I got some R 8096 metal disc wheels today (just a solid disc, no holes) to replace the wheels on the main 2 I will be using. Happy to report that it was £3.99 well spent and both the carriages I want work fine over ...

Replacing wheels.

Right, I have some old triang-hornby LMS coaches that unfortunately have too narrow a back to back to be able to traverse Peco SL-E92, and SL-E91 points without riding up over the frogs. Also they happen to be plastic wheels so likely going to just add grime to the layout. Anyone know which set of s...

Re: Neworth Heritage Railway

Some photos up later today of the track laid so far. Still have the sidings, the right hand station area to lay, and the left hand station still needs pinning. On a down side, my 3 LMS carriages off ebay are unable to traverse the Peco points as the wheels are too close together and despite much try...

Just finishing off the 4th underlay sheet now with ballast (this actually takes a while to do it would appear)

Another 8 to go but aiming to get 2 done a night now.

Re: Neworth Heritage Railway

Currently fishplating up my Peco Electrofrog's (I luckily had the correct number of insulated plates already bought which is good as I hadn't ordered more :shock: ) The Peco point underlays fit perfectly in with the gaugemaster ballast roll. They just need my bag of ballast and some glue combined wi...

Re: Church Street Models

I didn't know about the model show or the railway club tbh.

I'll ask my mate for the opening times again to double check them.
