Re: Michaela’s workbench

Now they DO look good, well done.
Your brake van was a touch too far unless you were going to mark
'Condemned' on the side, or place in an overgrown siding on a
heritage line for spares, or future re-build.

Any more buildings yet ?

Re: 0-4-0 quick makeover

It may leave me unable to buy every interesting Bachmann release,
but I can recommend 100% retirement !!

Re: 0-4-0 quick makeover

A quick makeover ?
O.K I'll admit not a slow as me, but don't you think you're slowing down ?

Re: Bridport & Dist MRC Summer Exhibition 28th July

I'm currently checking out my 'shed' of traction that's nominally allocated for use on Castell Mawr on the 28th July. I may add a video later, my dilemma is simply what to take. Currently thinking for GWR - Castle, 5205, and 57XX. For LMS a Webb Coal Tank, Fowler 3F tender. Then early BR a G2A, 56XX...

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

There may be a video - Youtube permitting, as it's thrown it's dummy out of the pram !! https://youtu.be/c162zU6miwU This should be a video of mostly kit built wagons running around my garage test track St Oval. When I started kit making I bodged up some couplings that proved less than 100% reliable...

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

I didn't get as far as expected. I do have to make a purchase though. Looking into my couplings tin I find I've run out of Bachmann short tension lock versions, only have a few of the long version, but these would increase separation of stock. One almost ready for painting https://image.ibb.co/kMJus...

O.K it's dull and just started to rain ............But I managed to cut the grass first !! Here we have the contents of two of the Ratio SR/BR 12 ton plywood vans kits, No.593. A few thing I like about these kits is a quite comprehensive instruction sheets, Metal axle sets complete with brass bearin...

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

Not been doing much over the last couple of weeks. I've finished Derek's Ratio SR ply van kit and as Lysander says, it's an easy kit looks good and runs well. Here is the best shot I have of it, being his kit I didn't do many photographs. https://image.ibb.co/dCEbJJ/IMG_2699.jpg He wanted a loose co...

Re: Ffrwd Locks. OO WR in North Wales (Wrexham) C1952-1953

Hi Sarah, Brake Vans ? Can you ever have too many ?? I did a video of a brake van special on my garage layout, I think it was 13 (mostly GWR) running around and yes, there is still a reasonable excuse for having more. When I first started into those 2721 pictures I thought "Still Clean ??"...

Re: Not a layout - but railway modelling

Hi Manna, Thanks for looking in. Using the principal of a fixed section of track, best if it's simple. One could easily have detachable and interchangeable 'fields' that slot into place alongside. Something larger than my Shillingstones Lane, that starts at page 5 of this thread. Joins are the main ...

Re: Soldering

Hi crazypotter, You say a small layout - Yes still add that 2 wire track power bus. Here we have the underside of my HS2 shunting layout, just 49" long, or should I say 1205 mm. I used some reasonable quality loud speaker cable, which at the time was cheaper than any equivalent twin wire and mo...
