Re: Peco SL-500 & SL-100

They're different guage right? SL-500 is narrow? In which case the rails may well be code 100 in height, but the horizontal gap between them won't be the same. The 4' in standard guage is not the case for narrow. The track gauge is identical ie 16.5mm . SL500 is designed for 0-16.5 scale models or ...

All Model Railway clubs have membership fees and it depends on the type of venue and costs involved. There ain`t no free ones out there. As bigmet says £60 is good value

Re: DCC Supplies (Worcester)

They can be very hard to contact by phone and their email/log in systems leave a lot to be desired. I have tried all day every 15 mins and repeatedly got the same recorded message. They give the appearance of being busy but often I wonder

Re: How do tender driven engines run?

The repairability of Hornby ringfield drives in both bogies and tenders is down to the sheer number of the things that they made and the wide range of models they went in. The level of spares currently available is an indication of the need for them to be repaired, frequently. Variations to watch o...

Re: Tender-first operations

I thought the point of this exercise was for steam to pull a timetabled service at normal fares. I think Tornado would have been coupled in front of the (leading) loco in each direction between Skipton and Appleby. The diesel may have only supplying ETH over that section but would have been in char...
