I'll have to look into that, as I did not know it even existed!

Thanks for pointing it out.

Latest update: Assembled inner box structure in situ on chassis. I need to trim off those pesky buffers!

Will the chassis come with the kit? I don't know what a "Clarabel" is? Colonist don't you know! otherDoc OK got it! It is an HO passenger car from the Thomas series. Probably difficult to source in the US. Are there any alternatives? Not difficult at all. I believe they are still freely a...

Here's the latest incarnation. I'll have to stop now as there are no lights in the shed. A giant laser cutter, but no lights. LOL I'm very pleased that the sash for the drop down window in the door came out so cleanly, even though it is only .050" across. I also changed the end, as I felt havin...

I'd prefer the chassis with no buffers if possible.

Agreed. There's really no way they would work properly either.

QUESTION: Would everyone like to keep the buffers that are moulded into the chassis or is it ok to remove them?

Thanks

Re: (M) Listers for sale

Now I know this thread is a decade old, but are these locos still available? Surely someone kept the master patterns. I'd even take a built up model that has been left under the workbench.

All in all, I'd love a few of the channel frame Listers...

Sigh.

Gibraltar Dockyard Railway?

Would anyone have more information on the boxcar seen here? I'd love to know more about the line, perhaps there is a particular book to recommend?

WTB: Bachmann well wagon from TTTE set

Hello everyone. I'm looking for the spoked wheel version of Bachmann's bogie well wagon. I believe it came in the Thomas the Tank engine set. Would anyone know of a source to purchase both wagons and separate bogies? My usual sources have come up empty.

Thanks!

Re: Coalition?

Coalition and Eclipse were converted from Bagnall locos, not Hunslets. I think the 7mm NGA may have published drawings of them at some point, but I cannot find them in my somewhat chaotic filing system (AKA a big heap :shock: ) From memory I think the wheelbase is about 3 ft 3 inches if that is any...

Many thanks.
