Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

Haha. Yes. I need to spend a little more time with the trains as I have neglected them a bit. I have quite a few projects to finish. Couplings comes to mind. Not a big job but is one that once I had a few working I seemed to leave them and move to the next project. Yet without couplings I am stuck! ...

Re: New wheels for older Hornby/Triang coaches?

You maybe just about able to see the red drinks straw spacers on the outsides of the wheels. The Romford 10.5mm wheels which matched the old wheels in size were simply slid along using the old Triang axles.

Re: Nickel silver track?

Put it this way. If you keep cleaning track with a track cleaning rubber (Which is mildly abrasive) for a long period... Let's say 60 years of daily use... The track will still look the same colour on the top surface. The sides can turn brown if left outdoors for a year or two but this is externally...

Re: Foam insulation board & foam underlay combo

I'm afraid I've not tried it myself. I know the boards feel sturdy as we had offcuts when we had to have a new roof due to a tornado. Be aware that though they are supposed to be fire retardent they burn pretty well, so take care with using hot items. They do seem very sturdy. My only thoughts in re...

Lima track has the best looking railjoiners I've seen. The old Mainline track looked realistic but it was a little brittle so doesn't like being lifted and reclaimed. I tried to get my hands on the last of the Lima track which I believe was N/S. It had crossing and poits designed so one can copy com...

Re: Real Rock!!

Excellent photos. Must have been taken around the 1920's at a guess or just before? My area used to look something like that and was a maze of railway lines and industry.

Re: Real Rock!!

Is interesting that businesses for building and businesses for reclaiming. It all looks peaceful there at the moment. I take it that it has been a while since it has been used to scrap anything?

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

While I have the Unimat set up as a lathe, I decided to get an old Triang plastic wheel out to see if it can be improved. These are the type of wheels that are found on the axles which don't have pinpoints. It is a curiosity thing just to see if I can make use of them. To keep things simple, I've us...
