  1. No - CV112 to 256 not standardised, they are for manufacturer's use.
  2. Bought direct from Redutex a few times without any problem and used PayPal which avoids charges. As has been mentioned - things will change. Unless there is some kind of deal, WTO rules apply which for model railways is a zero % tariff BUT - VAT is a great complication. Its not completely clear what will happen after 1st January 2021. This is the bit that I think will substantially impact "For goods sent from overseas and sold directly to UK consumers without OMP involvement, the overseas seller will be required to register and account for the VAT to HMRC." I just cannot see outfi

    Thanks for the comments - close up camera of the overhead power system makes me cringe though and one other gaff I am not going to mention! The SRS write up and photos are very good as well - saw you got a mention and picture too with Raetia Paul.
  4. Scotchloks are one alternative but higher rated choc blocs also give more space and easier for multiple wires.
  5. M-Machine Metals in Darlington are very good for materials, the other part of their business is reproduction panels for classic mini's. Helpful catalogue online. http://preview.m-machine.co.uk/CATALOGUES/metals catalogue.pdf
  6. Here are the detailed schedules, including the Engadine steam special on Sunday..... 12A93AF0-C987-6832-1B569F3D6E667BDA.pdf 12A955D2-9472-AF1C-B9F8C2E88AB0859F.pdf 5643D7D3-A30B-B362-506B3C1197A40D87 (1).pdf
  7. Used Dynamis for years and never encountered that. Suggest you contact Bachmann Europe for technical support - use their enquiry form. I have found a guy called Roger Tozer there very helpful in the past.
  8. Don't over complicate it, its just a beam with a pulley hanging from it and a rope.

    Following the traverser on 2013 and creating cassettes for train storage, I have revisited 1913 to add cassette storage on that layout as well. The period stock really does not like to be handled and this should substantially reduce that. First step was to add a demountable shelf behind the fiddle yard with a new point and spur of track which leads to the cassette locating point. Electrical connection is using audio jack plugs. The cassettes are plywood with closed cell foam to the inside. Dimensions are not as tall as 2013 as they don't have to accommodate pantographs
  10. This is a close fit to what you are seeking but still possible too big. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Proxxon-PS-Pen-Sander-12V/dp/B000NDGUXU
  11. Just curious, has anyone ever tried mixing some with fine iron filings?
  12. This was posted on Facebook the other day - from 1999 - just confirms how well you have caught the look of the place!
  13. At some point, it would be good to see a trackplan, love the different levels you have achieved.

    Finished the pelmet for the 2013 lighting rig this evening - make a nice pair!
  15. They appear to be actively trading via their Amazon shop and getting reviews which are current, maybe trying to contact them via their "ask a question" button may work? https://www.amazon.co.uk/sp?_encoding=UTF8&asin=&isAmazonFulfilled=&isCBA=&marketplaceID=A1F83G8C2ARO7P&orderID=&protocol=current&seller=A1VI37NUMN68HD&sshmPath=
