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

Thanks Alex and Geoff - great info. Just built 2 of their LMS 3-plankers (573) from the Parkside latest packaging - they went together great, but like all plastic kits needed care over the fitting of wheel bearings and axles. I will be writing to Peco - to enquire over the possibility of re-introduc...

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

Cant be certain but came across a reply to a post on here about lost ratio rolling stock kits where 'mahoganydog' mentions finding a "1502 24T Iron Ore Wagon" which is described as similar to Bachmann's 37-508 in type (whatever that is?) Alex Ah the almost mythical Ratio 24T ore hopper - ...

Re: Coopercraft - GWR Provender wagon diagram Q1- kit 1011

Sorry for the tardy reply - been one of those weeks :shock: :roll: The background is I have acquired a built wagon - but the underframe is a bit of a mystery - it seems like it is missing on one side. One side - has full brake gear - rigging, v-hanger and brake shoes, whilst the other side just has ...

Re: 2020 range EFE J94

S..but I had a J94 that only ran half speed one way while sounding like a cement mixer with gravel in it. This was on DC too.... Sounds like my 'original' Dapol WD Austerity (with a later Hornby J94 body), that I use for shunting my iron ore wharf - grinding bag of spanners - but v.near 30 years ol...

Painting Metcalfe Signalbox steps etc

Will soon be starting on the Metcalfe 00 PO233 Signal Box for my LMR layout circa '59. The kit is a reasonable approximation of what I need - apart from the green colour scheme for the steps, corners and window valances - which I think should be a Maroon for my period.... Will acrylic paint work on ...

Re: Hornby Peckett B2 0-6-0 Anyone got one ?

Having been pleased with the B2 I'm tempted to get a W4 0-4-0.......... Nothing much to do with any Hornby input, but having slightly reduced the wheel brakes* on the Green Frog Brewery stock my Hornby Ruston is able to move 7 without wheel slip and it's super quality slow running is great to use. ...

Re: BARGAINS!

Bachmann LMS vans are worth buying - BUT for the chassis - that you can then pop a Dapol or Airfix body onto. A word of caution the late LMS vans including a batch built in early BR times had diagonal bracing on the side panels - which only appeared in the 40's. Cambrian have a good range of earlier...

Re: Just a thought!

It is worth accepting risk to get the essential parts of the economy - which includes education - operating as well as possible. Without a functioning economy we very rapidly cannot afford all the many essential services that a developed society requires, and that would be an even greater magnitude...
