Re: Taiwanese mining loco

The Thomas Yorke version was much too short!


So how long should the loco be then ?. The Yorke model has room for a driver, the gears and the motor.
I would love to see your interpretation.

I think, Rue d´Etropal mentioned these Pin Ups a year or two ago. He announced, he´d use them for a loco he was building. I don´t know, if he ever did.

Thanks for the picture with the Carlo Spirito figure. The goods wagon indeed looks tiny. 78 mm long, 38mm wide, 62mm high (plus chassis. Almost HO dimensions. Too small for my Gn15 purposes.

Discount always sounds good. But I would love to know the model modensions of these offers.

If I am informed right, these pictures are not from China, but from Taiwan. A 600mm gauge coal mine, now closed. In case you plan to offer something in Gn15, it might make sense, to buy and build the kit of a suitable loco, offered by Tom A. Yorke,(USA), to get an idea of possible dimensions. https:...

Re: Clarabel has a new (laser-cut) dress

Coach is approx. 8' 6" by 42" wide.


That scales out to approx. 108 by 48 mm for the model.
Figures sitting oppsite need approx 70 mm, so the coach is too short
for 2 populated compartement.

Re: Clarabel has a new (laser-cut) dress

How about some dimensions of the box. How many passenger will it hold?
2 compartements should be enough room for 8 seated passengers.

Two in each compartement will have no window to look out.

Would he be more likely to mean that the edge of the wheelset base should start 16mm out from each end?


That´s the way to fix them. 16mm from the edge of the base, before buffer beams are fixed. The distance between axle centres will be 40mm.

Re: The Little Big Oak RR

You forgot to mention, they do not cost very much. So what do you expect. They scale out to about 1 : 27 - 1 : 29. Your stiff Bachmann driver figure comes in 1 : 20,3, so it is very much larger. Gn15 is modelled in 1 : 24 most of the time. Plenty of figures in that scale are available on the market....
