Re: Scale Compensation Paint matching?

Wikipedia for the RAL standard makes no reference to adjusting colour shades for model making http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAL_colour_standard , however I am aware of the need to compare colour shades under exactly the same lighting conditions, w...

Re: St. Mary Hoo - a clapped out SR branch terminus in P4

I like seeing the hiden bits of layouts. Thats why I like forums over magazines. That filter signal is a good example of forward planning. Cheers Mike; like many other aspects of the SMH project it was something that I'd always thought about, but for a short time there was a small scratch built sem...

Re: Hornby P2 #2001 "C**k of the North"

It is well known that the original Mikado Whyte wheel arrangement P2 was converted several years after release (1934 - 1938) to a Pacific 4-6-2 configuration, so I cannot see the point of the previous posting. Tim Sorry Tim but I agree with Old Man Phil, a P2 was only ever a Mikado, when they were ...

Re: Best 0-6-0 ?

I have seen J72 locos by Mainline and Bachmann at reasonable cost. Are they OK for an 1st radius oval ? Thanks Shouldn't be an issue, I have one and it is a "go anywhere" loco. Beware the Mainline bearing failure problem which has been discussed elsewhere, so far mine is fine, but I have ...

Re: A slightly silly question, perhaps.

I wonder how this tool got it's name, the term "Jim Crow" has some nasty associations with racial inequality in the USA, google "Jim Crow Laws" for more details.
