It is. Although reports are the wheel clearances are very tight if you fit a size suitable for the large wheeled 54s.

Thanks, Chris. I was thinking about 9.5mm wheels as with the 0.5mm flange they would be 10mm overall which would be close to the 5'2" of the 54xx.

Did you decide on a gear combination for the chassis?

Wouldn't they be 10.5mm overall? ;)

Sadly, David, I only just squeaked an O level pass in Maths . . . 

 

Or, as Captain Mainwaring might have said "I wondered who would be first to spot that" :D

Like most of my later chassis, designed for 14:18 M0.4 or 18:25 M0.3 which both have pretty much the same centres (6.4/6.45mm)

 

30:1 wormset

Chris, is there anywhere where one can see what is in your portfolio?  I'd say catalogue but that would imply it was available (and I understand why it may not be) but knowing what you've got may make it easier to arrange runs for interested parties.

 

There is a price list. But I should say with my current personal circumstances, I am not really up for doing any coach orders. They mostly take a lot of time to collate the various parts. Plus apart from a few types, the resin roof cupboard is pretty bare now.

 

So its really just the loco chassis at the moment.
