Re: DCC Concepts with Stay Alive

Contact Richard Johnson and sort the matter out with him. I know many people who have had pleasant dealings with him inc myself. He is on another forum (Model Rail Forum) or there is a contact link on the DCC concepts website.

Re: 0 - Coarse or Fine?

just to clarify for people, it's;

O gauge - the gauge of the track - 32mm
7mm scale - the scale of the reduction of size - 7mm= 1ft/1:43

Re: West Lulworth in O - Signalling (and some more stuff!) P

Sorry to bump an old topic. But who makes the B4 you have?

And is that Queen Mary a Laurie Griffen offering?

Re: Surprisingly good/bad

Hornby's Railroad Flying Scotsman Funny how you say that as my hornby trainset flying scotsman and peregrine (A4) both run very well! The detail ain't too bad either! I think you've misread. He was saying that it was surprisingly good. The Hornby Schools class was surprisingly bad, due to the fact ...

Help finding a B4

Evening gents.

I'm after a B4 kit, I am rather desperate to get my hands on one as they are my favorite small southern tank and Nine elms had an allocation of them, I've done some searching but with no results, If someone could point me in the right direction, that'd be fantastic!

Re: 0 - Coarse or Fine?

I would say coarse scale is less detailed and more suited to outside - 'playing trains'. Where as finescale is a more detailed approach, more for the serious 'modeller'

Re: B.R steam royal train

Model rail has lied to me then in regards to the pullman stock as they printed a photo of such a train claiming i to be the royal train. Cheers for the answers guys I'll have to do a little digging but at least I have an idea of what I'm looking for. Sorry, thats some misinformation from me actuall...

Re: B.R steam royal train

The southern region didn't actually use Pullmans, they used them for dignitary's trains, but the royal train was made up of pre grouping stock. I'm not sure if they painted parts white on the mildland region, but on the southern region they often painted buffers, firebox strapping, cab roofs and oth...

Re: Partwork Flying Scotsman

I don't suppose someone could measure the actual length of those fire irons? Are they flat or cricular?

Thanks in advance

Re: What is it with some modellers?

What I don't understand is why, on this forum, there must be constant attacks on people on other forums. If you find those forums too 'Elitist' then simply do not go there. Surely slagging them off as fat smelly old men who push children out of their way and are rude at exhibitions is a massive gene...

Re: Birmingham New Street in P4

I have done my best to stay away from this thread, The quality of modelling, and the amount of it leaves me disappointed in myself. However coming here is always fascinating, It's not even my era, but I love this thread. The fine detail you have applied to such a large area, it's wonderful to behold...
