Re: Hornby M7 tank R2840

Ah, that's one thing I can check then. Thank you for the suggestion.

Hornby M7 tank R2840

I have acquired for a very decent price a very nice secondhand Hornby M7. Now, I did realise before I bought it that it wasn't going to be able to pull much of a train, but even so, skin ... rice pudding ... All I want it to do is get round 90°of 32" radius bend on a 1:44 incline with one ordin...

So how does the good woman expect to keep you in comfort in your dotage if she isn't charging a realistic rate for her talents?

Re: Another "which glue" question!

Cheers BIgmet. I keep thinking how useful Spraymount would be, but I've always been put off by the cost. Do you reckon it would work for roofing a plastic card building either with Slaters embossed tile sheets or doing cartridge paper one-strip-at-a-time up from the eaves?

Another "which glue" question!

What's my best bet for sticking 4mm scale corrugated iron sheet made from aluminium foil on to plastic card? The sheeting's not very robust at all, so I need to use something which won't require much pressure applying to make it stick.

Re: Dust

I use the same gear as Bufferstop (and well worth the £8 or so it was on Ebay too) in conjunction with the household Henry, but IMO the way forward is to keep the dust down as much as possible in the first place. Therefore my railway's covered when not in use, particularly if I'm doing anything like...

Re: Motive power for track cleaning

Thank you gents. The main problem I face now is my total lack of any knowledge of diesels: I know that Bo-Bo is four wheels per bogie and Co-Co is six (at least that's what I've always thought!), but that's about it. Looks like my next challenge is to take the suggestions kindly given in this thread...

Re: Motive power for track cleaning

Cheers gents. The Lima seems to be available for around £25 but I'm wondering about those flanges running through Code 75 electrofrog points. Any idea if that should be OK? Unfortunately it looks like the diesel goes for more money than I can afford to spend on this. The track cleaner's nothing spec...

Motive power for track cleaning

My new improved Mk 6 (or maybe it's Mk7) track cleaning wagon seems to be working a treat, but alas the old Bachmann pannier which I use to push it round the layout can only just manage the drag induced by the weight on the cleaning pad. I suspect that I could solve the problem more or less by weigh...

Gaugemaster Uncoupler ref TLU

The good news is that for £9, the Gaugemaster solenoid-operated uncoupler has given me remote uncoupling in my furtherst-away siding. The bad news is that this being model railways, getting this thing working properly wasn't straightforward. Basically it's a solenoid which you mount under the basebo...

Re: Four-wheel parcels vans (or whatever!)

Thanks gents. So other than a carriage that needed covering, what would typically be carried in a CCT?
