Re: Led's

You have to watch the Coops like mad in my area.. They often put two for one offers on a product but the actual two for one item will be a different sized packet and it will be in a totally different location in the shop, and where it is won't be listed as two for one. So customers buy the expensive...

Nothing wrong with tension locks. They remind me of a chopper type coupling, especially if the front "Face" part is deepened.

Looks a bit like wood veneer? Is it going to be used for a tin shed?

How much do they cost? Not sure if we have a Poundland near here. I think I've seen one. Will keep my eyes open.

Re: Mountain's Competition Entry for 2018.

In the past I've used superglue which works fine except where the rust it was sticking to parted with the body. I just reglued them and they were fine. The first one I drilled holes (Tin is far easier to punch through then drill) and used wire. Wire works OK but is a bit too visible. When I rebuilt ...

Here are a few pictures of more progress.... I will be changing the wheels of the cast metal ...

Re: Financial Woes Continue

A DCC operated on-loco uncoupler that will work with several widely used couplings would be the one doodad that would truly interest me.
