Scale Speeds

Help please!! I'm at (friendly) odds with someone who has posted a video on Facebook. How long should a "OO" scale train at 90 mph real speed, take to cover a 1/76 scale mile? My "O" level maths says 1/76 x 1760 = 23.16 yards. Sadly as it's past wine o'clock brain :oops: refuses to go any further :o...

Re: Great parking...

I sat and watched a woman (in the grey Corsa) end up like this. To make her parking even worse, when she was trying to get her car into the bay, the silver Vectra wasn't parked...that bay was empty. When she finished parking, she walked away as if nothing was wrong ! https://i.postimg.cc/F7FFNyPK/9...

Re: Modelling On A Shoestring.

Thanks for replying - all the bits are still in a cardboard box awaiting final assembly!
Pleased with my initial construction, then fell at the final hurdle - just can't get my head round the electrics :cry:
