    EBay madness

    This 'bric-a-brac' dealer of junk still doesn't get it. These have been up for over two years at this silly price. These are 'old school' kits which were good in their day but probably now worth £20 tops. He has several of them! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/144312604895?mkevt=1&mkpid=0&emsid=e11021.m43.l3160&mkcid=7&ch=osgood&euid=738ddc32df01493491d7fe2c070fa555&bu=43704251606&ut=RU&osub=-1~1&crd=20211201015117&segname=11021&sojTags=ch%3Dch%2Cbu%3Dbu%2Cut%3Dut%2Cosub%3Dosub%2Ccrd%3Dcrd%2Csegname%3Dsegname%2Cchnl%3Dmkcid
  3. As an aside, I found this rather interesting and very informative from BRM. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTMqjm5neVg
  4. Problem solved thanks to CK who sent me a copy of the original instructions. P.S. Having read them, the wiring diagram is a bit unclear so if anybody has any further info on that I'd be very grateful
  5. Help please with wiring them up. I salvaged a few from the old Matford but can't for the life of me remember to how to wire them up! I've searched the couple of old RMw threads and various Google searches (including Conrad) but to no avail. They appear to be very similar to the white Conrad variety but the wiring points seem different. Any help would be gratefully received. Many thanks in advance. I would assume that the top three terminals would be for crossing polarity.
  6. Neil, it is fragile but easily 'refreshed' Additional fibres layered will give a good effect. Lightly topped off with some very fine ground foam adds to the effect. This is all layered grasses IIRC, started with 2mm base and then 4mm, 2mm next and topped off with fine ground foam. I do occasionally use longer grasses which I could never get to work using my original 12kv Noch machine but do get better results with the Greenkeeper 35kv machine. Using specific 'basing glue' rather than ordinary PVA do seem to get better results for the longer fibres...don't know quite why...!
  7. You should've done Jamie! What a pompous condescending idiot.!
  8. One can accept the 'removable' ads, but unfortunately this has now appeared with no 'X' to remove it.
  9. Love the buildings G! ....and I do see the influence of Sheepbloke!

    Thanks Mike. I didn't know about the height issues. Fortunately Mynydd Du (Black Mountain) is a real place near the Rhymney Rly at Troed-y-Rhiw, the pit is imaginary. As all those lovely Accurascale wagons were irresistible we must assume that 'Rule 1' applies!

    Thanks Rob. A 'sinuous look' was what I was looking for. After many tweaks, using the old reconditioned 'set track', the final plan is now decided upon (until it changes!). Much planning guidance about workability from the Chief Operations Manager has been incorporated to great effect! His railway operating knowledge and experience far exceeds mine! The two straight tracks that originally went to a 'closed' pit will stop short of the overbridge and modelled as removed and overgrown. The lump of wood represents the old wooden platform for the workman's train. Being a cheapskate, the hotch-potch of baseboard construction has evolved using old recycled and re-modelling unused ones. The new three -way has now been 'chaired'. The cutting of the C&L/Exactoscale chairs in half was a mind-numbing task as usual! There's still a fair bit of cosmetic work to be done but at least stock runs through it nice and smoothly. Workman's trains from 1957 which will be modelled. Pictures from ''Tondu Valleys' book by J.Hodge. Ctsy I.A. Wright. 'Tondu Valley' book.
  13. Very convincing weeds around the goods shed CK. Good stuff!
  14. Excellent news both!
  15. Good to see layout planning with 'what you've got'!
