  1. Although not a British bus - so a bit off topic - the buses which operate the free 16th street mall shuttle in Denver, Colorado are right hand drive to make it easier for the driver to see boarding and alighting passengers. this is a very high frequency services with a stop on every block resulting in 19 stops in total on a 90 second or less headway. This is one of the older hybrid buses now replaced by a battery electric fleet. https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3333/5843233241_d0a5a2b967_b.jpg
  2. But that would double up on the decoder requirement which the through wiring avoids. We’ll see.
  3. The original batch had NEM couplers at the outer cab ends only. The inner ends have a separable electrical connection to allow the unit to use just one DCC decoder and power the lights throughout the unit in DC operation. The electric coupler is not in an NEM socket because replacing it with an NEM standard coupler would not allow the lighting feed to be maintained. I cannot see why the new version would be any different. http://www.lendonsmodelshop.co.uk/pdf/Arnold Service Sheets/HN3001 - Brighton Belle.pdf
  4. In a post on 26 November 2019 on the 3D printing forum M0rris/CMAC Models has said he is getting test prints for the Rover 800 which should make an small impression on the 1980s/90s list of unmade cars. https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/99217-cmacs-n-gauge-multiple-units-and-sbb-icn/page/9/#comments

    I played with that sort of sound set on a little N scale moving diorama about 10 years ago. It was better in the cardboard than on video. https://youtu.be/lfQw1PguzvU
  6. But would you have made your first run in public view? Or would you have done so privately? Just imagine the impact of that annoying piece of swarf in the drive system. I think that KR were sensible not to demonstrate the model until they had the chance to run it themselves privately.
  7. I am pleased to say that this cab and the wheels are now in the standard RTI range, amongst other new items released for November. I have the bits now to make an East Kent service truck. http://www.roadtransportimages.com/online-shop/item/579-fordson-model-61-25-35cwt-1936-cab
  8. Delighted to see that Graeme had several new items available on his stand at the Warley MRC show at the NEC this weekend. I just had to get the bits for FOR14 the Fordson Model 61 which Frank Waller had never released although I managed to buy one Frank had put together as a GPO van. The November new items appear on the front page of the RTI website:- http://www.roadtransportimages.com/
  9. This designer has some British outline cars in 1/160, and might be persuaded to scale them up to 1/148. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/3dcerebro?section=1%3A160+N&s=0 Some of the French and Italian ones were seen regularly when I worked in the docks at Dover.
  10. In the recent UK newsletter Rapido said they had found 20 unopened sets so potential there for replacement working chassis.
  11. Sunrise have an extensive range. http://www.modelbuszone.co.uk/tmb/kits/sunrisetransfers.htm
  12. Might be easier to contact RevolutioN direct with that question, because it is not something anyone else can answer., and they did already ask you to contact them directly following your previous questions on here.
  13. Of course the DJM CAD included the IP protected double coupler. :-)
  14. How big/what scale is the school building? You could make the hinge integral with the printed walls so no need to drill anything.
