Re: cutting track

Xuron track cutters for me. I only use mine for track and they still look brand new. I haven't needed to use a file as I turn the rough cut end 180 degrees and recut it.

As for joiners I place them by hand but then push them into place with needle nose pliers taking care to only grip the lower layer.

Re: Sleeper spacing - centres or between sleepers ?

My avatar just happens to be a picture of the track at Hythe Station on the RH&DR and shows that the spacing is more likely 30". IIRC, the sleepers originally were closer when built which was found to be excessive so when replaced they increased it. This public domain photo shows sleeper sp...

Emrys, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the effort you have put into the GnATTERbox since it's inception.

Hopefully the forum will be taken over by somebody who has more knowledge, time and resources than I have.

I've been watching this topic with interest. I think comparing 3D printing with resin models is like comparing paint with pencils, they both have advantages and disadvantages. Firstly forget about comparing quality. Admittedly I haven't seen a printed item in the flesh but as regards to resin and wh...
