  1. Unfortunately not Mike as we wouldn't have space. However you will be able to see TLJ at an event on Easter Saturday in Netherfield, Nottingham to make 50 years since Colwick shed closed
  2. Hi Neill, Maerklin use the same spec as Lima 24.4 - mm axle length so old Lima wheels will fit but if you pm me a street address I have a bag of assorted continental wheels that he can have. They’re mostly Roco (axles 24.75mm) so you may have to swap the wheels onto the Maerklin axles but both use 2mm diameter. All the best Nick
  3. The Carlsberg wagon is close to a it’s prototype. https://www.jernbanen.dk/dsb_zvognsolo.php?aar=1893&vognid=198 The car isn’t an ice reefer, but is probably insulated - widespread pasteurisation of beer will have made refrigeration unnecessary but the beer would ave to be kept from freezing. The Brawa wine wagon looks to be a standard box van, I suspect wine has a lower freezing point. Carlsberg replaces its heritage stock with a fleet of modern (1960s) beer wagons that were in turn replaced by swap bodies and trailer on flatcar.
  4. In Eurostile font for that sci-fi/dystopian vibe? https://typesetinthefuture.com/2014/11/29/fontspots-eurostile/
  5. Pretty certain that it’s the FA/FB that fits - I’ll check my Model Railroader Cyclopedia.
  6. I’m really looking forward to seeing this at Mansfield, speculative fiction based layouts are still unusual on the exhibition circuit but I wonder if GMRC will change that. Have you decided on the locos/ done any detailing or modes?
  7. The ladder like structure sounds like a coil cradle, the roof bits maybe parts of a removable cover - any chance of some pics? https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/ho-scale-gondolas-coil-steel-load-csx-76150112
  8. Get a set of cutting broaches (not jewellery) and ease the holes https://eileensemporium.com/index.php?option=com_hikashop&ctrl=category&task=listing&cid=1135&name=transfers-fixing-masking&Itemid=189
  9. European industrial shunting - sounds good, looking forward to updates.
  10. As long as your De Lorean travels forward in time as the same speed as the rest of us! (Now edited)

  13. When I e-mailed NCE about the thumb wheel on my Powercab I was told that shouldn’t fail and would be repaired free of charge. I just paid for shipping, I described it as “item for repair” on the customs declaration when I sent it.
