Re: Intending to try 'EM'

Sounds interesting Geoff. If it was me and small layout worked out well, I'd probably get carried away and expand it. :)

Re: New Terrier - Remove Cab?

Crews always seem too tall to me too. I've been looking for some 1:87 British crews but any that are decent like ModelU are too expensive.

Re: Grounded Flying Scotsman

I recently had to send a loco to Hornby for repair, it ways about 2 years old, not only did they repair it FOC but refunded the postage cost as well! Years ago I sent 5 Pullmans back to Hornby to have the bogies swapped over. For whatever reason, they were caught up in customs. Simon Kohler got the...

Re: LED's for house lighting?

Warm white or yellow depending on era/taste. Use resistors (always needed anyway) to dim to the brightness you want. Recommended at least 1k. You could end up with 5k or more.

Re: Hornby. KArthur Pendragon

I'm with RAF96. I've got loco's with that system of securing the motor and I'd imagine that screw could easily be tightened too much and end up stripping the thread. If this is the case it needs a complete strip down to drill and re tap the thread and use an oversize screw. Not forgetting to drill o...

Re: AEC

That was an interesting read Dublo, thanks for posting. I went to the AEC works with my father to have tappets and pump timing etc adjusted on the lorry he was driving at the time. Not only was I allowed to be there watching, I didn't have to be dressed in a hi viz suit of armour. Later on I drove s...

Re: What size spanner?

Re: Which glue? Lineside fencing

Dead right argent about the cleaner. I dropped a clanger when I posted, giving the impression that I used the actual glue (the thick stuff). I have the garage door open with a fan blowing the fumes away from me.

Re: Dust

For dusting, I use a very soft bristled make up brush... it's not for my make up, honest. I use the normal vaccum (Meile) but so far I haven't got small parts to worry about.
