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.
