Re: scratchbuilding

I quite enjoy building kits which is why I thought I might try scratch building.

Re: scratchbuilding

I learnt about needing weights from building kits and Iv'e taken to slipping 2ps in where I can. As for the buffers, axle box, and springs I brought them. I managed to build a body but I have become stuck on building the under frame. I just don't know where to start. :?:

Re: Moan re Merseyside

I have ordered things from different sellers and it got lost in the post. All that I learned from it is that after a fortnight it is officially lost and (if its in their policy or whatever its called) their responsibility to replace.

Re: Travelling wagons.

So a Coal wagon from Scotland could end up in Bristol and can be as common as a GWR wagon if coincidence allows it?

Wet ballast

I am ballasting my track and I thought to check to see if the electrics ware still working. The train won't run.
Is it because the ballast is wet?
Is it the ballast getting in the way?
