  1. I've taken a photo of the pizza cutter wheels from my sliding door GWR coach. They obviously have a detailed brake disc element to them, but really deep flanges, that makes them unsuitable for fine scale trackwork. Are these present on XC/Scotrail coaches? Is it possibly an oversight from Hornby, or is there a reason they have such deep flanges?
  2. I searched this forum before asking this question, and had not seen anyone mention it. Is there any particular reason why the GWR Sliding Door Mk3s are fitted with pizza cutter wheels (deep wheel flanges)?
  3. I have no problems with this steampunk range. Looks like it could be fun.
  4. Indeed, that's what I would expect, but sometimes, changes are made, and just wanted to assess if anyone had experienced any snags. I have the chips from the Western Pullman set, and 'm looking forward to fitting them to a BP. Once I do it, I'll share any problems I encounter, here.
  5. Has anyone transplanted the Western Pullman Zimo chips from the current set to the original Blue Pullman iteration, and if so did the end result work as expected?
  6. Many thanks GWRRob for letting us know. I guess it would be prudent to contact Hornby then...
  7. What purpose does the baking powder fulfill with repairing the split plastic axles?
  8. Here is another photo of the new teaks, compared with my re-painted Margate teaks having followed the instructions of Mike Trice (of this Parish) to the letter.

  10. Many thanks, the main page for my dairy layout is here:
  11. This is how these look on a layout. Gloss finish is noticeable. I have of course turned the full brake around to hide the lack of the guard window.
  12. The only other obvious thing to comment on is that this current, 2019 batch have been given a gloss varnish finish, compared to a satin finish in previous releases.
  13. In order to leave the Dairy part of the layout, I added an extension to allow traffic to flow onto the continuous run, featuring Durham railway viaduct. Here, an LNER J15 is taking a United Dairies milk train over the East Coast mainline, mainline braking is provided by the short LNER full brake. The overall scene has some additional refinements to make, but it's enough to show the idea.
  14. Yes, happy to report a recent development in that I have constructed a Chivers Finelines (now trading as Slimrails) LNER Pigeon Brake Van. Usefully, this can be used as a milk brake, which is the intention here. Though not yet numbered, I had a go with the Mike Trice LNER teak method published within RMWeb and I'm quite happy with this result. My next update will show an in-progress domestic extension to the layout for home use.
  15. Many thanks for this, and for the PM; tremendously helpful, I'm very grateful.
