Re: "Neverwas" wagon sides printing

Brilliant! I'll get in touch with Robbie to see what's available. His published list looks interesting and the prices are certainly OK. Many thanks for the lead.

Re: "Legacy" Stainless Steel Code 75 track for '00'

Good points but I'm steering clear of a garden railway for the present; the West Wales climate is something of a deterrent. Breaking news is that a very experienced RM friend has just taken delivery of a whole pack of Legacy track. He's built plenty of SMP fittings in the past and is unlikely to be ...

Re: "Neverwas" wagon sides printing

Thanks, I am considering that as a last resort but I'm not sure I'm up to the graphics required. I can cope with generating various fonts and typefaces but when it comes to two-colour shadowed lettering and printing on a curve I'm well out of my depth.

Re: "Legacy" Stainless Steel Code 75 track for '00'

Thanks for the pointer. I had looked at the RMWeb quite recently but failed to spot what is quite a comprehensive thread. Apparently, the soldering issue can be solved by using DCC Concepts' special solder and flux. It would be interesting to know what grade of stainless is used; unlikely to be ANSI...

"Neverwas" wagon sides printing

An elderly railway modelling friend had two 'N' gauge GraFar wagons specially printed with fictitious liveries that incorporated his family name. This was arranged, many years ago, by a model shop in either Abergavenny or Brecon. He can't quite remember exactly where and I believe the shop has close...

"Legacy" Stainless Steel Code 75 track for '00'

Has anyone had experience of using the Stainless Steel Code 75 bullhead track called "Legacy", made my DCC Concepts and presently being offered by Hattons at a very reasonable price? I can see that the track might be the answer to a garden railway modeller's prayer but how do you make elec...

Re: Vehicle Scale

You have my sympathy. Why dear departed Mr Odell produced so many "Days Gone" models to a scale that fitted neither '0' nor '00' I'll never understand. You can't give them away on ebay but see the difference if the model is from the 1:76 "Trackside" range. As a SR modeller myself...

Re: Analog controller

Did you get your replacement Analogue Controller, either for Christmas or otherwise? I have a Hornby 905 that is looking for a home now that I've "invested" in H&M Duettes. BB.

Re: Triang EMU

I can confirm that excess wheel flange diameter is not the cause; well, not on my Code 100 PECO track anyway. The degree of hardness of the milled wheel rims is certainly extreme. I had similar comments from an engineering works about my Velocette gears so maybe that was a 1950s thing. Since I have ...

Triang EMU

Having just joined this Forum as an old (or should it be born-again?) modeller I would be interested to know if other railway modellers are familiar with what I've experienced with a very elderly Triang EMU. I only acquired this unit recently, off ebay of course, and found that the motor/drive line ...
