Re: PDH Drawings

Kindling - Thanks for that response, I don't know if your answer triggered bufferstop or he remembered it himself, big job to remember 50+ years mag contents, but solved my problem

Bufferstop- Thanks in PM

PDH Drawings

Has anyone used PDH drawings successfully lately? I ask because I'v been waiting for a response from him for over 5 weeks. I've just been through a topic on another forum and and they seem to be slow, and that was 5 years ago so I'm just wondering if PDH is still in business even though the website ...

Re: BACHMAN SPLIT CHASSIS

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you all on this one. 6c wins - a bulge on the spokes of a centre driver. A bit of careful paring off seems to have fixed it. Thanks for all your helpful suggestions and interest.

luckymucklebackit, Mountain, 6c (close I'm nearer 5c), Iron Duke, Bigmet - thank you all for your responses. I've improved the general running by improving the motor spring contacts but will check all your points over the weekend and let you know the results.

BACHMAN SPLIT CHASSIS

Hi All. I'm having fun playing with a poor running Bachmann split chassis BR4MT. It sticks at the same place on the wheel each time but the quartering looks OK, the motion doesn't appear to be sticking, it still does it is I feed straight onto the two chassis halves and its had a good strip down cle...

Gee Dee Models, Nottingham

The owner (aged 88) has been trying to sell for over 12 months so he can retire, but without any takers. Talking to staff this week they're expecting to be shut by Christmas, everything is reduced by 20% at the moment and the website is talking about an 'everything must go sale' but date not yet ann...

Re: The Railway Executive

Thanks to all who replied on this one. I had a vague idea that it was in the area that D605eagle said but wasn’t sure. Both examples I’ Seen have been dated in the 1950’s so that could fit.

The Railway Executive

Hi All

I have, on two occasions, found plates on preserved industrial locomotives inscribed "Registered by The Railway Executive".
Is anyone able to explain the significance of these plates please?

Well done Geoff. Thanks for starting the tour and putting all the effort into producing Guy.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Great pics Nick, love the variety. Glad Guy arrived in one piece.
Until you get involved in something like this you don't realise how responsible you can feel.

Re: Wordsworth Scale Converter

I'd never noticed this on Mikes site before (always rushing to his kits), I've just downloaded it and can see it being really useful.

Thanks Mike and Tony and Bufferstop for bringing it to my attention.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Breaking News !!! On Saturday evening a pair of young passed cleaners, under the influence of a couple of pints of Joules Stone Ales decided to play a trick on the shed foreman by hiding Guy. Unfortunately they were grassed by the shed creep and will be cleaning the inside motion of 4Fs for the next...

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

It was decided that the safest place for an overnight stop for such a prestigeous visiter would be on shed outside the shed master's office. So later in the day Guy was delivered there with the other shed traffic. https://image.ibb.co/gbet0G/Z01J01.jpg George in the van doesn't seem impressed with i...
