Hmm, the other night I was wondering what to do next on Callow Lane...<br /><br /><br />More of this, perhaps? It needs doing, but I could do with a bit of a rest from it, to be honest...<br /><br /><br /><br />Then again, there's this that I've been thinking about recently:<br /><br /><br /><br />So, what's it to be?<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />No contest!!<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Very basic conversions to P4 of the Bachmann Presflo. The wheels (a mixture of Maygib and Exactoscale) just slip right in. A bit of extra weight under the axles (roof lead), plus scale couplings. I might fit some sprung buffers later, but the three wagons have no suspension or compensation. High speed hauling and propelling tests of this rake, plus other wagons were carried out on Callow Lane the other night, with satisfactory results (no derailments or other problems).<br /><br />I'm going to accept that the brake shoes aren't quite in line with the wheel treads on these, but at least with the P4 wheelsets they are admittedly a bit closer than in OO... <img src='http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/public/style_emoticons/default/wink3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />   They are simply 'layout wagons' to pass through and get stabled for a while in a siding, prior to moving on (there is no cement terminal on Callow Lane!).
