Ewhurst Green - BR(S) Mk1 Roof Detail

Again, referring to the above photographs many will spot the Bachmann Mk1 coaches are now devoid of the ugly roof-ribbing these coaches are made with. These are simple to deal with using a chisel-edge blade dragged width-ways across each leaving just a perceptible trace; in other words the weld-seam...

Re: Site appeance

Brian,

Thank you for your ongoing interest.

Kind regards,
Colin

Ewhurst Green - BR(S) - Passengers

Ewhurst Green - BR(S) - Gangways

I do dislike the 'air-gap' between coaches. Those fitted here are Keen Systems which are sprung-fitted into the existing corridor ends.

Re: Site appeance

Problem re-ocurred when navigating this site.

This is becoming irksome.

Is there some function /appearance change that I've inadvertantly triggered on the site whilst navigating?

Ewhurst Green - BR(S) - Dynamo Belts

In terms of my rolling stock I do like to see dynamo belts fitted, These are really straightforward and for just a couple of minutes work the effect is quite effective. :D . Dynamo belt 1.jpg . The secret behind dynamo belts is to use a section of brass strip wrapped around the dynamo pulley then tr...
