  1. Andy,


    I am 78, a long time member since you appealed for funds to buy a new Server

    - I was flushed at the time and you hit lucky with me.


    I am lost on the new layout, and i feel I have lost a pleasure of a good read and exchanges

    on the site.


    Could you please consider going back to the previous format - the logic of the current defies me.

      Sorry, that is not possible. 

  2. LOL! Looks like this is what it is reduced to. N.
  3. Shapeways now print in HP Nylon and a Bevel Set is performing well with good feedback. N.
  4. My uncle was a wheelwright of the wood kind from the 1930's and restored old road vehicles at Goring-On-Thames into the 1970's when his collection was sold. Oval spokes, YES, hence the "SPOKE SHAVE."

  5. The Pollen E frames are reputed salvaged from the Broad Gauge wagons. Guinness Book of Records list the Pollen E as to oldest commissioned wagons set in Service; that is before they were taken out of Service! Not only photos of detail by Castle, but also available NRM Drawings and those published in various of Tourret's books were used for the models They were produced to "Castle's Approval" - and with 84998 & 84999 opposing Brake Handles faithfully reproduced. WAS IT A BUILD MISTAKE, adding the Buffer Beam to the wrong and identical end of the second wagon - in place of making right & Left handed wagons? I keep telling myself, "No more diversions, I must get on with my Writhlington layout!" - it all started with a 3D experiment to produce a Colliery Wheel - now I have the S&DJR 25a Dazzler too.

  6. Chris The "Trap" points I interpret as the Catch Points on the incline, within the Colliery Gates, and on "Private Property" By Sidings, I refer to the Main Sidings alongside the Mainline - how far in were these Lever thrown. Noel
  7. Hi There is a pic' somewhere of a worker in Writhlington Sidings holding an old rag, maybe for operating brakes - but also point levers?. From when were the siding points rod operated from the Box, or has that always been the situation. Noel
  8. Tony Your Dad as a teacher was clearly more valuable to you than having him as the owner of a Pub. We have a rich boy in charge over here, whom I doubt knows anything about Agamemnon. Noel
  9. Hi! I have chosen 30" x 60" inch x 6" deep modules that are still comfortable to be handled by one person, and give problems like these more room. A 2280 x 1140 (8 x 4) provides all the additional support work. Noel
  10. Hattons replacing bad runners will ultimately degrade the offering. - what a way to go! Are all DJM models like this?
  11. + This page is so overprevailing the site should change its name ! Is this what rmweb has now been distilled down to? Noel
  12. Jamie, Have you tried an N20 motor with a gearbox ratio about 60 rpm with purpose designed bevel gears - the whole should sit within the 12mm of the frames See:- /topic/132105-n20-motors-railway-modeller-april-2018/
  13. Hi ! As stated above, current offerings do not meet the need. - these are bespoke for the purpose and affordable as a simple solution. The current eBay item is # 123215503408 (Relisted on trip with more than 10 sold !) Of course these are designed for N20's with the square brass gearboxes The N20 are high reving and 12v geared down to 60 rpm gives excellent torque for small OO locos. On the 0-4-2 SDJR 25a the assembly leaves the Cab free for detail. Noel
  14. Hi ! On eBay.co.uk there are Shapeways 3D HP-Nylon bevel gears bespoke for these N20 motors sold as 2 pairs. Axle Gear is a force fit on a 1/8" axle and has glue lines; the motor gear fits the flat of the motor shaft.
  15. A Bevel Gear set for the N20 type motors, now popular, is available on ebay.co.uk There is a 60rpm option of the motor available. It is in Shapeways printed HP-NYLON material
