  1. * The idea of this alternative form of uncoupling ramp for tension locks has been around for more than half a century. CP
  2. * I am afraid this is incorrect. 1:35 scale is 8.71mm/ft. 16.5mm track therefore scales 22.73ins. Translation: it is not far off being reasonably accurate for modelling nominal 2ft gauge (inc 1ft 11.5 ins and 600mm). [Figures above to 2 places of decimals.] CP
  3. * As I understand it, sadly the KATO Unitrack very sharp radius points are not live frog. Larger radius are. CP
  4. * "Sutton Wharf" - 1:25 scale on 16.5mm track representing (inaccurately) 18ins gauge. See here 12.50- 15.20. CP
  5. * May I please ask what the chassis is under the right hand van in the above shot? CP
  6. * Apply to Peco Publications and Publicity. If the issue in question is not available they may well be willing to supply a copy of the desired article. CP
  7. * Thank you - this is an excellent idea and I hope it proves a success. And to state the obvious the brass strips could be chemically darkened whilst remaining electrically conductive. CP
  8. * Agreed. I have done the same, did not see it May 1961, but could not find my copy of Nov 1961. CP
  9. * There has been a thread here (scroll down this section) entitled - Chiltern Model Railway Exhibition - Stevenage 11/12 Jan 2020 - for some weeks. It details layouts attending, parking advice, etc. CP
  10. * Excellent and most welcome news. CP
  11. * Thank you for this most interesting and informative photograph. May I please ask if the servo mount is a commercial item? And if so what is its origin? Thank you. CP
  12. * In the interests of accuracy and to avoid confusion, should this not refer to the "King Alfred School"? The "Kings of Wessex School" is in Cheddar. CP

  14. * As a seasoned exhibitor (in excess of 200 exhibitions and on three occasions having driven with layouts from the UK to Liepzig and back) I fully understand the issues of forward planning, distance, etc. For more than 25 years I have driven approximately 100 miles each way to ExpoNG (either as a visitor or exhibitor) and intend to do so again this year. The NG content at the Mid Wales exhibition this year is very attractive. Three of the layouts I have seen before and would be happy to see again. I would especially like to see Roy Link’s “Crowsnest Tramway” (making its first appearance) and would gladly drive the 160 odd miles each way for the privilege of doing so were it not the same day as ExpoNG. I appreciate that my viewpoint in this matter is that of a dedicated narrow gauge modeller, but I suspect I am not alone in feeling that this tragic clash of dates is both unfortunate and very disappointing. Yesterday the latest issue of Narrow Gauge & Industrial Railway Modelling Review arrived on my desk. On page 384 there are two (and only two) exhibitions of interest to narrow gauge modellers detailed. These are ExpoNG and Welshpool exhibition. For those unaware of the matter the editor of this most excellent journal is the aforementioned Roy Link. I rest my case. CP
