Re: Four-wheel parcels vans (or whatever!)

The 4 wheel trucks became less and less used on passenger trains as the trains became faster as they were limited to ar maximum speed of 70mph. It was common to see a "club" symbol in the working time table that denoted no 4 wheel stock to be conveyed in that service.

Re: Signals around Maidenhead c1992

Unfortunately the 1974 resignalling notice is locked for members only, however the 1963 notice is available here https://www.s-r-s.org.uk/pullfree.asp?FilePath=ArchiveSignals%5CDownloads%5Cbrwr&FileName=1963-lxo062.pdf Shouldn't be too hard to work out basic changes. Jim

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

A nice looking plan Jim - pity about having to reduce the radii. I know you had to contend with the complications posed by loft height previously. This time you will have to cope with scrambling down under the boards - you don't mention a lift-up/out section. Will there be one? - I think you'll fin...

Re: So, My First Ever Layout Starts ....

Hi Blueday - Always great to see a new project starting, you look as if you have plenty of space there. How are the curved points worling out for you, many modellers avoid these as they are notorious for causing derailments. Can you do a track diagram, woul dbe interested to know where the two track...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Can this be inserted between the struts or is a hut like a loft where you need to have an air gap between the insulation and the outside wall to prevent condensation (see sketch). This is a whole new concept for me so expect lots of questions.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Yes - totally agree, that will be part of setting the shed up, also got to think about running power out to the shed. Any suggestions as to the best insulation? I was going to use that thin plystyrene like this https://www.diy.com/departments/duralay-3mm-laminate-flooring-glueless-wood-flooring-unde...

Re: Modelmaster Loco - Resin Bodies - NBR

Well anyone thinking that it would be an easy conversion from a J36 can think again, the J37 was a longer wheelbase (16ft 11in) against the J36 (15ft 6in) so that is nearly 6mm difference in 00, too much. The Bachmann J15 is closer at 16ft 1in (3mm short) possibly close enough for anyone but the pur...
