Railway workshop diorama
 
Hi I'm planning to build a railway workshop which will incorporate a rolling road like the one explained by WTD in another post. Now can anyone tell me where I can purchase some of the tools which would have been used.:)

Have a look at http://dartcastings.co.uk/ OR http://www.langley-models.co.uk/ What type of tools are you after.

With me modeling a railway workshop it will be tools like drills, grinders belt driven and other tools such as hammers and workbench vices. I know Wills make a workshop kit. Thanks for the links.:)

Looking at the few photos of full size rolling roads online, there don’t seem to be many tools, if any at all, lying around. But in a more general steam workshop it seems anything goes - from shovels and steps to lathes, milling machines and lifting gear. And the main item seems to be piles of junk.

I donít suppose have loose tools laying about when a steam loco is on a rolling road travelling at 90 mph is a good idea.

Must have been an incredible experience alongside the rolling road.

If this rolling road is the same thing as a wheel lathe or something different, the wheel lathe at Hither Green worked by dropping the wheels down into a workshop under the pit used for steam loco's a diesel wheel lathe at Stuarts lane the wheel was turned while still on the loco. any other sort of rolling road i never come across.....

A rolling road was as in this picture Tinker. Loco stands on it and runs at speed, just like the model versions.
