Re: Just a thought!

Unfortunately - much of the optimism generated or perceived - is in relation to the economy not public health - easing of the public health restrictions is still at best questionable - at worst foolish in the extreme - there was a time when the virus could have been mitigated - but the lost weeks at...

Re: Gaugemaster

"Is the slowest speed on the Gaugemaster Q4 a very slow crawl?" This is more a product of the track and locos. With the selected locos - you will get excellent low speed response. My ancient (25 years old) Gaugemaster twin-track with simulator - gives excellent crawl speed with my modern ...
