Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

Now I'm on a roll with the SlimRails wagon kits I purchased, here are two open wagon bodies fresh from painting. Picking out the metal brackets and hinges in black was quite fiddly, but I think they have come out ok (for me!). Weathering will blur the joins between black and grey and tone down the s...

Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

Another Slimrails wagon - slightly different style ('cupboard' doors this time), lighter colours and a bit cleaner! https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4862/46230817141_0de30088c5_k.jpg IMG_9240 by Pink Nosed Penguin , on Flickr https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4888/31292109787_0788e35f20_k.jpg IMG_9241 by...

Re: Reusable, modular layout base in N-gauge

You're making great progress - and that road bridge looks excellent! I esp like the way you have locating dowels to make it removable . . .

Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

Some Slimrails wagon kits I ordered arrived and I have constructed the first one = a box van with sliding doors. These kits are well made, quite reasonably priced and go together nicely - I fitted the door closed on one side: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4891/45232324885_2b4159b307_k.jpg IMG_9230 ...

Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

Thanks guys :D.
TimberSurf, yes that's the same technique in your video, only the one I followed did not mention the magnetic removal (I added that bit myself). However I think I should have used a larger piece of metal in the load (like you did) . . .

Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

After seeing these slate wagons at LLechwedd over half term, I was inspired to add loads to some of my wagons :D https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4819/31166368207_091058d018_k.jpg IMG_9168 by Pink Nosed Penguin , on Flickr Like the above I wanted to pack slate into a wagon, but probably not such thin ...

Re: And the next photo will have...(real railway version)

Next let's reduce and look for a small loco, say 0-4-0. Here's the small but perfectly formed 'Alice' on the Bala Lake Railway: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4883/31123568627_e4af58add5_k.jpg IMG_9066 by Pink Nosed Penguin , on Flickr Next lets 'double-up' and see an 0-8-0 :-)

Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised to find I had a wagon kit I hadn't made up yet :D - a Smallbrook Studio Inside Bearing Tub Waggon . It took my fancy because of the 'inside bearings' configuration. It is a simple kit to construct: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4900/44224858650_a7029073d5_k.jpg ...

Any other type of crossing over the railway. There is a simple crossing in this photo, but really its just an excuse to post a photo of this impressive Garratt on the Welsh Highland Railway :D https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4842/45989983772_a26c59cbe6_k.jpg 20181101_151934 by Pink Nosed Penguin , o...
