  1. Propelling of wagons downhill to terminii without a runround was certainly done. This was the normal means of operating at Snape Bridge. It should be remembered however that there was a brake van at the front end of the train.
  2. Triang Transcontinental motor bogie, also used for the Dock authority shunter and TC switcher
  3. There seems to be a misconception that Marklin have only produced 2 rail recently. In Actuallity Most of if not all of the Marklin range was available under the HAMO brand as 2 rail 12 V DC. Hamo was bought by Marklin in the mid 60's.
  4. There were several layouts based around the ROD (Railway Operating Division) and LROD (Light Railway Operating Division). There was a complete section devoted to this, including one of the Hunslet 4-6-0T from the Imperial War Museum. I was helping to Operate a friends WDLR narrow gauge layout "Marinique".
  5. Hi, I am about to order a 3d UV resin printer. What resin do I need to go with it? For models I.E. Which resin type and colour is best in terms of being painted? Any that I should avoid?
  6. If the kit has been in storage for a while. It is worth cleaning the etches with Cillit Bang or Stainless sinks before starting.
  7. I think this model is one of the ex LMS 3MT, not the 2MT. I have seen one of these motorized by Mike Shakespare with one of the farish chassis's.
  8. Not looked recently but is the HAMO range still available from Marklin (12v dc versions of its range)?
  9. Does anyone have any experience with the Phrozen Sonic. I am considering purchasing one as it has a slightly better xy resolution. Previous experience with 3D printers is with FDM. Cheers
  10. I have just seen this thread. One Railway I could not see in the above Colne Valley and Halstead Railway 3 District Railway carriages purchased in 1903. These were half of the Joint experimental Metropitan and District Electric Train of 1900. Very modern and comfortable, compared to most minor railways.
  11. Ten Dean Goods Locomotives were actually fitted with Pannier Tanks and Condensing Gear by the War Department in WW2
  12. Hi, Is the trouble you are having with the Stroudley Brake simply that the axles are too long. Alan Gibson will supply wheels on shorter axles to fit Lima HO scale stock on request. Thought you might like to know
  13. The reason Trix models were to 1:80 scale was because that was the scale that trix (germany) was using at the time. It was also in use by others e.g. Rivarossi and Fleischmann. As models became more accurate over time, continental manufactures brought out 1:87 models.
  14. I always thought the body was based on the locomotives of the Oberammergau line. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Falchetron.com%2FAmmergau-Railway&psig=AOvVaw39y2dvHC6yNY6YnH7Z1NMP&ust=1605027214358000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CAIQjRxqFwoTCMDP-cb29ewCFQAAAAAdAAAAABAO
  15. When you use servos did you try using an omega loop in the wire connecting to the tie bar?
