Re: 1n15 Lister Loco

Sorry, but you're mistaken about this loco making appearances in GB.
I live in Maine, USA, and haven't been in England for years.
Must have been some other 1n15 Lister. I'd like to see it myself.

1n15 Lister Loco

Well, I just completed a Lister loco, in 1" scale, 32mm gauge. I painted and weathered it, and it runs very smoothly on it's Deltang R/C system. BTW, I also sculpted the driver figure. You can read and see a lot more about this project, and the making of the driver, at http://www.carlospirito.c...

Battery Power and R/C ???

Hello, all - I have been modeling in 1/12 scale, but I'm now considering a project in 1/24 (Gn15). I would build my own locos, but they would have to be battery powered and radio controlled . Can someone point me to info about these topics? Also, I am particularly insistent about using batteries tha...

Looking for a figure

I've seen this figure online, but I don't know the scale or source.
I think it's part of a larger series or set. Amazing realism!
If anyone can help me find it, I would appreciate it.

Re: No route... AGAIN.

I went away for a week, and when I got back, everything was working normally again.
Maybe it just needed a rest... or a reboot?

No route... AGAIN.

Hi,
I sent a post here to this thread, but as yet I've gotten no response. I can't reply to it either, because I was denied viewing.
So, here's another cry for HELP! See other post for details.

Lack of posts lately

Is it just a slow week, or am I somehow missing out.
I've only seen a very few posts in the last week, and none in the (usually popular) "Modelling Matters" section.

On the other hand, the whole forum works well for me, with no odd looks to the pages.

Just wondering...

Re: Gnatterbox 'look and feel' hiccups?

I've had the problem on my iMac running OSX 10.9.5 and Firefox 36.0.3
It fixes itself if I do a browser refresh a few times. Hope this helps, and
I hope someone gives you a new Mac. You'll never go back to WINDOZE. 8)

Re: Sleeper spacing - centres or between sleepers ?

With all due respect, all the ties pictured in this thread are waaaay too wide.
I have never seen any prototype track with ties this wide.
Narrower ties will make the track look much better, IMHO.
