Intermodal container gooseneck tunnel dimensions?

Most intermodal containers 40' and longer have a gooseneck tunnel at the doorless end, designed to slip over a raised neck on the trailer chassis that carry them by road. You would think that, as much as these containers are used, the dimensions of the gooseneck tunnel would be commonly listed. Sadl...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

I'm aware of hi-cube containers. I just didn't bring them up there. They would be even more of a pain to make from printouts of 20' containers. Incidentally, I was on that site earlier today and I am quite ticked off at it. It and every other website I've found with container dimensions. Because som...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Mike, how much bother would it be for you to make 40', 48', and 53' containers (Note: 53' containers are 6" wider than the other sizes)? Would it not be possible to alter the percentage dimensions of your printout to whatever size you require. A little bit of DIY is another rung on the learnin...

Re: ZTS workbench: Structures, rolling stock, locos, and mad

Contrary to what Model Shillroader magazine would like people to believe, horn-hook couplers are not demonic menaces that should never ever be used and cause endless derailment and magically uncouple around curves. They're just not the most realistic-looking and can't be magnetically uncoupled the w...

How lovely that photo inserts are working again (knock on wood). http://img04.deviantart.net/7783/i/2016/028/9/f/mantua_pacific_pickup_solution_by_zeldatheswordsman-d9pmvpv.jpg A lot of American steam loco models, especially older ones are wired to pick up power on one side from the loco, and the ot...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Well, whatever the exact cause of trouble is, I'm betting we'll have it fixed by the time Mike makes another update :P And darnit Mike, I know people were asking for the subway, but I'd have rather you posted the dang ramps and made us wait a bit more on the subway than the other way 'round! Without...

I've got plenty of projects on my desk.

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

So, I got the basic construction of the main building done, with modifications. http://img12.deviantart.net/8677/i/2015/344/a/1/wordsworth_grand_station_bldg__mostly_done__by_zeldatheswordsman-d9jpgko.jpg It started with just the transparent windows in the facade, as I'd had to cut out the printed o...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

I'd actually soldiered on building the station, working around the issue, because I'd already mounted several pieces when I discovered it. So I had to wait for an opportunity to reprint the appropriate pages for proof of concept This is already a reprint, and in fact in grayscale, which you somehow...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Well I've checked my original copy of the Grand Station & I'm struggling to find the problem, I've checked the final outer shape of the components that make up the wall & all seem fine & mirror each other OK. I've checked the aperature cut outs & the inner print shows through OK, th...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

there good if your wantiong that kind a stuff form me and modern image sadly a no go I'm not sure what you mean. Most of the kits are for old-style houses and shops and railway buildings; there's very little modern to be had here. Has anyone else had the same issue I did with the station? And speak...

Re: Wordsworth - 00 Loft Layout

The new layout looks well. That grand Wordsworth Station is coming together nicely - sort of a shame that it doesn't have acetate windows like the original effort from back when that was to be Southern Fangore, but on the other hand with the lack of an interior they're not exactly missed too much. I...
