Re: Pedanticmongrel's New O Gauge Layout

My oh my, Just so much better looking than '00', just wish I had the space (and money) to have a decent '0' layout I think that to a degree the space and money thing is all relative....

Which other thread are you talking about? Because he has sold up his OO gauge stuff, are you talking about his stock on tour one?

Thanks, Stew.

Have you decided on a period or will it be a case of just enjoying running whatever you like?

Re: 3 1/2inch GNR Atlantic 'Maise'

I haven't used a TiG (or TAG) welder for years....
Back when I fancied buying one they were way out of reach for occasional home use.

Re: 3 1/2inch GNR Atlantic 'Maise'

Whilst I do have some pics of the Simplex they predate my ownership of a digital camera. I'll see what I can do but the loco is currently stored away at my parents house so I can't just nip out to the shed and take some shots :? Do you have proper brazing/silver soldering gear then Pete? I used to h...

Re: Pedanticmongrel™'s O Gauge (Loco & Stock on tour)

Some very tasty models there 8) I am impressed with the cab detail on the 1361 and have recently been tempted by a Tower Pug but have yet to succumb to adding it to my very small collection of O Gauge models. 2251 is always a favourite just like the 57xx Pannier. I don't see myself as a GWR man but ...

Good looking machine with an impressive spec.
How do you find the torque at lower speeds for turning wheel castings etc.?
I ask as I'm more used to back-geared machines for this and have no experience of variable speed drive and wondered how it compared?
