Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
I have not built a layout of my own for over twenty years as most of my Hobby time was taken up building locos for other people, and also running a small casting company doing detail parts for locos in 1:43 scale.
If you haven't already worked it out I am in the UK, and with retirement from working on the full size railway I decided to do something completely different. My workshop is not that big so doing standard gauge was out of the question, but narrow gauge in O scale would work, so ON30 it is(with a bit of O-16.5 thrown in).
It is designed for operations and is basically a shelf layout located above my machinery. Although I started building the North Kent Light Railway a couple of years ago, I thought I would start this blog with one of the structures, the Ore bin which is from the Kitwood Hill Models range.
The assembly is very straight forward with the parts fitting without any problems, and as its going to have operating chutes a few modifications will be needed along the way.
Once the main body parts had been stained assembly commenced using super glue, bulldog clips and weights came in handy whilst the glue sets.
The Sluice gates and Chutes assemble without and problems.
