Re: Finally a new loco start

Hi David,
where did you get the gear motors? The one in this picture( IMG_1685.JPG (105.44 KiB) Viewed 399 times) looks like one I could use if they have them in 50/60 RPMs.

Re: Light weight bridges

After WWII a lot of BAILEY BRIDGE Elements found their way in the NG field.
They where cheap as surplus and all over the place. On top of that,
light weight and easy to assemble without the need for heavy lifting gear.

Re: Historic Construction Site Meet

Hi Simon, TOTALLY wroth it! They are real narrow gaugers/mine tram users, re constructors of equipment.
Their historic pictures, travel reports of existing mining/quarry rr and trams all worth it.
Give it a try

Re: Where to get link and pin couplers?

Here is my solution. The gauge is a 32MM . the coupler is from OZARK. To get them to work properly in the PUSH mode i allowed them to swing a bit. This also helps when pulling through tight radius curves. https://s20.postimg.org/l3uwco6jt/IMG_0363.jpg Never forget, thousands of roads lead to ROME......
