Those are for airbrush, I want mine for a normal brush.

 

You can use them for brush, just patience is required ;)

He added 3mm ;).  An important factor with a signal on the 'wrong' side is the clearance between the arm and loading gauge - which Rob also took account of.

Good point! Must remember that for Porthmellyn Road...


Once they go black, you'l never go back..

 

Unless of course they are unlined post war green that is  :jester:  :jester:

Black is the new black.

Holly is very nice but I prefer Charlize Theron who does the "shed door" advert I alway get a movement watching it.  :D

First impressions are good and the packaging was better than expected. No bits were off in the box.What a weighty beast too and I suppose I'd better check the running...

Couldn't you wait for the G.W.R. one ? :biggrin_mini2: , be bit careful with pony truck the axle keepers are a bit flimsy

can you let me know if you managed to shorten the draw bar and run it without de-railment hapepening.

 

Yesterday I had a mass running session and found my one started to de-rail on a curve it was running

round last week with no issues so I started to mess with the track and it still came off I thought buqqer 

this I'll run something else and that came off I replaced the problem bit of track which turned out to be

twisted it had been down 5 years, an hour later the problem was solved which was a relief.   

Staying with Heljan loco's my saddle tank managed 20 6 wheeled tanker through reverse curve it's

the first time I had used it with anger it does look funny flying round with 12 coaches in tow.

After several days of all- blacks it’s good to see green again, and I think Heljan’s shade is really agreeable. I hope this beast stays that way!

It really is a beast as it comfortably pulls every wagon I own , 35+ with ease, opens, covered vans, toads, cattle, you name it.

 

Here it is meeting the black Hall.

Black is all right on those up country n'gins but the GW should be above all that and paint everything green.  Shows a bit of class!

But why such a dull boring green? Saxony green is a much more pleasant shade...

Oh that does look good Rob, almost as good as a SR engine that is. Beasty thing. Local spotters will faint and Mini and whoever she was, will swoon.
