David,

You're quite right to be pleased with the way things are going. The running is excellent and the track holding exemplary and a wonderful advert for P4.  Wish mine was always that good!

Just a couple of thoughts.

Are you intending to put any edging strips on the runs round to the cassette yard - a derailment on those sections would end in catastrophe. It looks as if the glazed central portion of the main station building has distorted somewhat, compared with previous photos of it. Or is that just an optical illusion?

Dave.

Hi Dave

 

Regarding edging strips, I've thought about it but although I've had plenty of derailments I've not have any catastrophic plunges (yet) or indeed anything close. Stock which comes off tends to stay upright.

 

You are right about the wood section of the station building, I made the drawing the same size as the gab between the two main parts of the building and didn't allow for the quoins. I just need to sand about .5mm off the ends!

 

thanks for the nice commends

Hi David,

 

It looks beautiful and runs beautifully! Can I ask about your E4 - did you use the Gibson compensation method, ie with his hornblocks, or another method, and what motor / gearbox combination?

 

Also noticed in your blog that you managed to fit a Portescap 1219 into your Gibson J15 - how did you fit it? With an MJT conversion kit or similar?

 

Thanks very much!
