Re: Gaugemaster T4 transformer

I have to agree with Bufferstop here. For the last few years it has actually been a legal requirement, at least in the UK, that anything to do with mains electricity (even at the level of changing a light fitting) has to be certified by a qualified electrician for safety reasons. I guess they chang...

Just for extra info if you look at the 9F 2-10-0 the centre driving axle is flangeless due to min radius problems.
