Re: 3D Printing – Metropolitan Chesham Coaches, 4mm/OO

Hi mattmay05
I would have thought a test piece or two and correction assistance from the printer would be part of the cost.
These things are never right first time.
Like you say sometimes it takes more than one person to get these things right.
if they ever do go to print PM me.

Normal working would be the signal man clears the signal the crossing activates first then the signal clears allowing the train to depart The freight line is a b...

Re: New Mexico HO layout

Hi SR/ScR Fan
Given the BNSF is a merger of the BN and the AT&SF and the BNSF loco is fresh out of the paint shop as it should be.
Any BN and AT&SF locos going in to the facility should be of a suitable care worn appearance.
Nice job on the office shame to hide it under a roof.
