  1. Whilst getting things ready to photograph, I have found the gear that I had put in a safe place, and the chassis now runs!!, sorry to cause you any trouble. Steve.
  2. Is there a chance of a replacement nylon? motor worm for the gear box with the extender gears for the Fell locomotive?
  3. There is /was a cased rig in the N.R.M. Warehouse, where you could operate the model of the Fell gearbox as in the film, but only a rudimentary label of course.

    Em Gauge layout

    I haven't tried the EM Gauge site yet, I am a member by the way, and as the space is ruffly square I was thinking on a continuous run layout. Steve.

    Em Gauge layout

    Since moving to the South east I haven't had an EM Gauge layout, so I am looking for a layout that could possibly fit into a 8ft square space or thereabouts. Steve.

    Yes, delete the telephone No. if your not going to answer it, and reply to emails, I try to within a few days. Steve. By the way I have got around using his etches by fabrication or making resin castings of what I need!

    He still will not answer his phone, (various times on the three days} I know he is a one man band but this is just plain stupid!! and Warley is not an excuse ether.
  8. Has any one managed to contact Shawplan recently, I have tried his phone several times to place an order (Monday, Tuesday, and Friday) with no success, is he still trading?
  9. Looking for an N Gauge class 85 electric resin body kit , unbuilt, part built etc.

    Roy Jackson

    He was an inspiration to us all, and I certainly miss the pilgrimage with the BNNRS to see him and Retford before I moved to the south east upon retirement, as a fellow EM modeller he was keen to see something that you could bring to run after the sequence, ending with the Deltic and passenger train belting across the junctions way way above the supposed speed limit!! I have a short video of my DJH Garrett (single motor) pulling his long freight for a few circuits, he and the crew were surprised that it completed them as a few guest locomotives did not, yes Roy you will be missed, RIP.
  11. Thanks for that, I will take one if you still have one left.
  12. Is there a price for the Fell yet?
  13. If the van rear is thin you could use a nail as I have done on one of my Scalecraft Roadrailers.
  14. Dare I ask, how much is the Fell?
  15. 10203 seen on Bigbury at the Sevenoaks show.
  16. I have "Exe Halt" a layout based upon the Exe valley line "Up Exe" station in BR days near closure 4' X 3' operated from the rear. with assistant! And a Lone Star layout Four Feather Falls 4' X 3' again operated from the rear. If these are any help. Steve.
  17. This show is not on the calendar page for JUNE? Steve.
  18. Just in case you wondered what all the fuss is about this layout, it was described in R.M. May 2004, the photos show it when I sold it on. Steve.
  19. I have just found this thread, Yes , it's good to see my old train set is still going strong and being shown at exhibitions, something I did not contemplate when it was along the garage wall and just used for some occasional shunting. Steve.
  20. Here are the locos on top of my article in the March 1988 R.M., at the left hand side back is the B1 conversion using an old Westwater & Kirk kit, they also did a V1, Steve.
  21. It was very good for the time and adaptable, I built a Royal Scot, Patriot, various Black Fives and an 8F from the the Jubilee you but couldn't get away with it now though, and I described them in the Railway Modeller, funny though I had them down at the club last night to see if they still worked and they did after all those years. Steve.
  22. Its the old one in any scale, say from O gauge down, to keep costs low for a smaller British market, British body,s to the same scale would not fit onto a Continental chassis with out increasing the size, the Trix A2/A3 and Minitrix Britannia are good examples. They use a modified German pacific chassis as a starting point, unlike now where the manufacturer / tool maker stars with a clean sheet of paper so to speak, even with similar models or even between batches of the same models, OO Gauge "Bogie bolster C" plateback bogies I have found at least three slightly different ones from different
  23. Is there any news on the green ones arriving yet? the website says March/April.
  24. Just found this thread, awesome build, reminds me of my attempt at your resin class 25 with two motors, delrin drive and running fan, it pulled the first train on "Idleford Town" the B.N.N.R.S. O Gauge layout but since sold on, here's a couple of photo's of it. Steve.
