Re: Ewhurst Green - BR(S)

What do other modellers use? I'm keeping my 00 gauge tension lock for now as I'm slowly selling my 00 gauge collection as I rarely get to use it. My efforts go into 0-16.5 when I do any modelling... I did try a brief period of S&W to trial them out and they work well. It was more the cost and effor...

Re: Hi everyone

Would perspex fitted at 90 degrees to the track base be an idea? At corners a little fence could be made instead. I was trying to fathom the copper... That is to catch them if they have already left the board I'm assuming? My thoughts are to hold them on the train board area so they dont come off th...

Re: Ewhurst Green - BR(S)

Not heard of Winterley. I assume they are not cheap? The good thing about tension lock in 00 gauge is they are already there and they do work... (Most of the time! :lol: ). I'm actually surprised that the RTR manufacturers have not found a better coupling system though. Something that looks more rea...

Re: Ewhurst Green - BR(S)

You've made them look good there. Kadees look very much like buckeyes. Lifting those things can be quite a job on the real thing! I dont like the look of kadees on locos and older wagons but in between coaches like this, nothing can match the realistic look that they give. The problem is, unlike the...

Re: Hi everyone

That's very impressive. Any thoughts about some sort of guardrail in case of derailments? Perspex or a thin wire fence? I am really impressed with the structural work that you are making. It really looks good.

Re: Using Polysyrene sheets as backboards

Nice Brian Sheriff backscenes. I like them but they take ages to cut out! :) Worth the effort though.
