George,

 

As always, your buildings are looking superb.

 

I think you need to breathalyze that bus driver though or at the very least get his eyesight tested.

Fitted the peco fencing along one edge of the bay to stop people nicking off the wagons that will be parked up in there, also sprayed some sleeper grime to the track, and the last picture is a major repair job on a Bulleid M/N that has a burned out motor and broken valve gear...

Hi George, I cannot see me making a start on it until the winter at the moment.  Time is just flying by at the moment.
 

Cheers, Ade.

Good luck with the valve gear George.

 

We have an aged loco at the club that defies all logic. It runs sweetly on DC, when equipped with a non-sound dcc decoder and when dc is enabled but it is extremely jerky at the lower speeds when equipped with a sound decoder from the same manufacturer as the non-sound decoder (running on dcc). We're fairly certain it is a motor/decoder mis-match but we baulked at the idea of stripping the valve gear down so that we could get the wheels off because the motor is secured in the chassis by screw mostly hidden behind the wheels.

 

We're obviously not as brave as you!

Not brave Ray just stupid ? Hahahaha the secret is to take a few close up pictures before you attempt to take it apart so you have some idea how it goes back together, l am the same with DCC, don't get me wrong l love it, but l don't understand it and l get mates to do chip fitting etc etc, take care mate and hope to catch up sometime at a show ? whenever that is....

George,

 

Your fencing is very effective. I especially like its combination with the GUV in close up.

 

I am confident you will have the M/N up and running in no time.

I usually cut the springs in half on plunger pickups to stop that happening but I only have experience of Slaters
