Re: 4 axle HO wagons wobble, how to fix?

I had a similar challenge some time back. As Peterm and Bufferstop have suggested replacing the wheels with metal wheels on axles solved the issue.

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

Just one question: why don't you paint the rails sides? It's just my opinion but the bright metal disrupts the amazing, beautiful harmony of all the rest but in the places where it is painted the atmosphere gets really impressive.

The end of the line at Clarence Dock. IMG_5319.JPG When I ran my Class 52 locomotives it was always to Rule 1. Two weeks ago I ...

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

Re: A Set-Track shunting loop Project

The idea sounds good.

Ah! I see the problem. There are no images I can see. :mrgreen:

Then as if by magic they can be seen.

Looking good. Love to see the scenery on it. :wink:

Re: Hello from America

Welcome on board, SM.
As SRman says OO and HO use the same track gauge.
Over in the U.S.A. you can get Peco track (as well as American makes).

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

A misty, almost rainy day as Class 25 25218 on the Leeds Central to York local waits at the signal.

And near the junction. Is the mist clearing?

The same train near Canal Corner. A shaft of sunlight?
