  1. Thanks for that. Whenever I haved C&L components in the past, I've built with thin timbers to match SMP plain track. So, your advice makes sense. Thanks.
  2. Although Peco have promised diamond crossing in Autumn/Winter, I am tempted to buy a kit from C&L. C&L supply kits with 0.8mm and 1.5mm thick timbers. Can anyone advice which timber thickness is most appropriate for use with existing Peco bullhead points and flex track? Bob
  3. Sorry Andy, My post should have been addressed to Wayne. Grey moment. Bob
  4. Is the "K" crossing the only problem and the component that needs to be rail rather than cast? That being the case, it would seem that the solution is clear. "K" crossings can be troublesome for me when scratchbuilt in rail but I expect the precision and refinement I've seen in Wayne's other kits would easily overcome the problems that I've faced in the past. I suggest the solution is there. My problem is timing. I'm now ready to lay track and the double junction is the logical start point. I may have to bite the C and L £60.95 bullet. Andy, Is it possible to supply diamond base, rail and common crossings so that I can attempt to produce a diamond using the same techniques and concept of your existing kits, please. Thanks, Bob
  5. I'll be starting to lay track shortly and was hoping the diamond would be ready for the junction. Things being as they are I considered building one with a C&L diamond kit. £60.95. I can wait a bit longer.
  6. I'm not sure I follow. Presumably you're talking about the rail die. If die wear is such an issue, surely it would affect Wayne as much as any of us and I expect he has as much control over rail dimensions as anyone. Apart from the bloke doing the excrusion of curse. What I would think is more of an issue is the source of the rail. One extruders code 75 might not be the same as anothers. So, the source is critical. One way around this would be for Wayne to let customers know the source of his rail or maybe sell rail to those few interested parties.
  7. As you get older, your memory is the second thing to go. I can't remember what the first thing was.
  8. Phil, A young lad like you shouldn't be able to remember this sort of stuff. Bob
  9. Smashing to see the progress, even with the odd set back in colour awareness. Reminds me of the famous snooker commentary when colour television was a new fangled idea. "For those at home watching in black and white, the red is behind the brown".
  10. Phil, It really is good to see you back in the saddle again. For me, this is the most exciting part of the process. Construction and track laying. I've been stuck in this part of the process for decades so I must love it. Bob
  11. Nice job. Mind you, that's a strange looking Western.
  12. Hello Phil, Great progress, but do you know there's a shortage of HGV drivers to get it to shows? Bob
  13. I have to admit, my experience with Rails has always been positive. Service has always been good. I've just never come across this sort of risk deflection approach to sales. Anyway, Shrek is one of my favourite films. I'm not ogreist.
