Modelmaster - Alive and well

I can happily confirm (Jim phoned me at 21:10 last night) that Modelmaster is alive and well - despite what you may have heard in 'another place'.

Re: Swap cabs

The body mouldings from the late 70s onwards will fit this chassis - go for a later body Jinty such as the S&D one - as these have separately-applied handrails and other detail.

Re: Parkside shock-absorbing wagon

Agree with the above comments - 0.45 handrail wire is considerably more robust than the 0.30 - which they tend to supply with their wagon kits...

Also it responds better to being worked - like putting the right angles in that will be required..whilst not looking over-thick.

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Hi 6C, These LNER/BR hopper wagons are a nightmare with so many different designs all purchased under the original LNER Diagram 100. None made 'In house' and each contractor making a chassis to suit themselves. The PC80 Parkside kit looks the nearest to Metro-Cammell production. I'm using two David...

Re: RMWeb forum joining???

It's a bit incestious - as they are actually linked to Bachm*** - try criticising the big B and wait for the storm that will follow - from the admin. Recommend not joining - just rip off any ideas you like - as most potentially useful posts - are rapidly de-generated into armchair modellers spats, w...

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Thanks Geoff

Was thinking of getting a few of these for a Coke train, but will probably just beautify some Dapol RTRs with Dave Bradwell's excellent detailing kit - as I have done previously.

Re: Lowmac

There is also a Hornby ER-lettered version of E260863 - Lowmac-EP - R6240A.

From the standard Hornby ex-Airfix RTR stable, seems to be a nod to its parentage, region-wise.

Re: Spam cans on branch lines

Basically as Stuartp says a train for the 'withered arm' such as the Atlantic Coast Express would leave London as a 12-15 coach formation and shed portions of 2-3 coaches at Exeter, Yeoford, Okehampton, Halwill Junc. and Wadebridge - so you would still have the large main line loco still at the head...

Re: "R.U." on a brake van

Certainly in BR times this wasn't too strict see - Hornbys R6257 toad - W17274 which was restricted - according to the bodyside lettering to 2 trains only between Birkenhead and Bersham Colliery (around 18 miles apart) and return, but it was seen in Worcester ! I suspect this was for Loco Coal - for...

Re: Golden Valley new loco

Got a red-liveried ICI Janus from Hattons for £50 in early June - been run-in on my oval test track - which settled the initial poor slow running - vital as it's normal running is shunting and slow trip freights around a mini-dock complex. So an A+ for running and reliability... I will be updating t...
