Re: Rail mounted Bubble Car anyone?

There was (May still be some where) one of these built if I recall correctly by Rich Morris and used foe a while at Leighton Buzzard in it's "Iron Horse" days. Scary thing to ride in and with no reverse meant that a crew had to go and physically urn it at level crossings. I think the wheel...

Re: Orange Empire Railway Museum.( Part One)

Agreed Ken , the whole thing looks very scary, unless a lot of equipment guards have been removed it would never pass any of todays safety regs. (I have seen big Electric face shovels & draglines at work.) At the moment though I cant think of an excuse to model it! More pics after the weekend of...

Re: Orange Empire Railway Museum.( Part One)

Now this is a strange bit of kit, unfortunately a building, the sun (!) and a tree stopped me from getting any better photos of this beast..but it sure would make an unusual model.

Orange Empire Railway Museum.( Part One)

During my "Winter " vacation in California my GF managed to find the Orange Empire Railway Museum. They have a circuit of "Cape" (3'6") Gauge trolley (tram) track, together with a shed (aka Car Barn) full of stock. IMG_2638GN.jpg IMG_2642GN.jpg IMG_2635GN.jpg There is also a...

Of interest to some?

Re: RC coming to the Nevada Desert!

Thats looking very interesting Ken. Current draw on those modern motors is pretty low, so your figures are probably accurate. The interesting thing will be to see how long the batteries will last on each charge.

Cheers

Re: North American Minimum Gauge Industrial Locomotives

Thanks for the info, but having built Shay's from scratch in 0n2, 0n3 &Sn3 building one in 1:24 wouldn't be that much of a challenge now (or would it :shock: )No way would I think about hacking a Bachman one about. .....Now do the slot-car people still use bevel gears?

My First Printy Loco!

Some years ago I came across an Australian Cane loco "Printy" in 0 scale by Jim Fainges. I down loaded & printed it & enlarged it on my "home office" printer to roughly 1:24 scale. Then stuck the prints in the box in the top of my wardrobe for months. The other week while...

Gn15 Photos How to access

I've been getting the page unobtainable message since last weekend for the forum, so very pleased to be back! But how do I get to post photos?

I'm still getting the page unobtainable screen?

Now off to see how what I can find elsewhere on the forum since I last visited.

That looks good Bill, and very similar to the entrance to Chilmark Stone Mine in Wiltshire. ( Dont know it its still there) as I used to work on their generator right beside the mine entrance.
