Re: Lostock Junction

I've got a display cabinet with a few locos like that, plus a few that don"t fit in with the era of my layout (mid 1950s to mid 1960s). Although my dad never had a layout of his own, he was a member of a local model railway club for several years and bought tons of locos and rolling stock which he r...

Re: Lostock Junction

Thanks Chops.
I've got a few older locos that are a bit like that too. Some are very jerky when running and others definitely don't like going over points. In the latter case I thinks it's because the wheel flanges are a little too deep for the point frogs.

Re: Lostock Junction

Thanks Chops, In the UK the standard convention is that the UP line is the one heading towards the more major terminus on the line. So, for example on the lines out of London, the Up trains are always the ones heading towards London, whereas the Down trains are always the ones heading out of London ...

Re: Henley: Moving Goods and Brits

Hi Chops, no you're not the only one to have such problems. As Puddles says adding weight to wagons can help, as can making sure that couplings are at the correct height and that the hooks are straight. If anything I've found that the narrower couplings can be worse than the bigger ones. One of the ...

Re: Lostock Junction

Thanks for the compliments guys. It certainly keeps the timetable writer busy trying to fit in paths for the various freights etc. in between the regular passenger services. The local photographers tend to concentrate on the freights as they offer more variety of locos and rolling stock. Luckily one...
