It's OK Gerry, I get where Barry is coming from and think it is a very good idea to have button links on the various pages, aswell as the menu to hover over, it will give an alternative way of navigating around, thanks for the suggestion Barry, I want to make it as easy as possible to find things.

Thanks again guys. To answer a few questions: Si - Yes the shipping is a bit messy and I'm trying to find a better way to integrate it into the cart, hopefully just a temporary way of doing it.

Thanks very much guys, much appreciated. Still a work in progress and the first few days have shown up a few problems that need tweaking, but overall I'm quite pleased with the way it is working.

Pepper7 updated

Hi folks, yes I know it has been a while. Well I can now reveal one of the reasons that i have been quiet of late. At long last I have entered the world of website creation and a new shiny (or not) version of Pepper7 is now online. As this is my first attempt, I'm sure there are mistakes and errors,...

Just a quick response, as just getting ready to head off to a show this weekend. I am back online and have a huge amount to catch up on and data to retrieve. If you are waiting for a reply to an email, probably best to send again and I will get back to you next week. Direct email is in the email but...

Took a moment to work out what you were talking about Joe, you meant "Greenwich" couplings I think :wink: Yes they should work ok with the DG's as long as the heights match and the DG's will enable delayed uncoupling between the two. Stick with the Type C, they are more reliable and robust...

As a relative new comer I will hold up my hand and admit that I, as I'm sure others have, have posted non Gn15 threads in Modelling Matters, simply because I didn't realise it was intended for Gn15 only. In future I will post my non Gn15 (but still minimum gauge!) modelling questions elsewhere. Don...

Re: Future of the Modelling Matters section

Over time other sections have been created to cater for other scales. The only scale that doesn't have a specific section now is Gn15! Well yes and no :roll: Originally, Modelling Matters, Prototype Prattles and Trade Tittle Tattle were all grouped under the Gn15 heading. Due to a few (who are no l...

Well these were imagineered but based rather loosely on the vehicles produced by HAWE in the Netherlands for use in greenhouses, as Gerry rightly said. To see the real thing that inspired several different variants of this type of vehicle, here is a link to a site all about the restoration of one wh...

G'day Many years ago Pola produced a working lift bridge (both in N and HO) but try and buy one now :shock: :shock: Last time I looked on eBay a kit was $130 (including postage). Original cost was about $15 from memory. Pola really ought to think of reintroducing those kits. Every time a similar br...

With Gerry updating this on his Loco Shed trawl, it reminded me that I have been meaning to try a Halling KSW motor bogie under one of these self propelled vehicles. As it turned out, it was even easier than I expected, so a quick post to show how. All that is needed is a 2mm or 0.080" spacer a...

That must have been a long time ago.
The railway was dismantled after his death and if I remember correctly, most of the equipment went down to St Austell in Cornwall. Not sure what happened to it after that as the St Austell line must have closed about 20 years ago.

It's a different process, it's more of a cutter than a printer really. The object is cut from a pile of paper by a blade on the print head. A lot cheaper on materials than the current 3D printing process.

Good to hear they arrived ok, was a bit uncertain how long it would take with the chaos from the floods. Just seen the local news and saw the current state of the railway heading your way.
