Hi Brian

Best wishes with your new project. My own Dublo 3 rail stuff was packed away many years ago & hasn't been touched. My pride & joy was the 80054 tank loco it seems you've got, plus the 3 carr ...

Thanks for the replies.

Agreed that a lot of stressed wooden structures weren't painted- trestles for example.

And yes, I remember it's a Southern Models piece.

So the decision's made. I've given i ...

This is really a prototype question, but since most people at all interested are likely to be modellers I'll try to get away with posting it here.

I've got an HO model of an elderly NSWGR wooden gant ...

My Antons turntable has breaks in the contact strips so the polarity is always correct. There's an arc of several degrees where there's no power to the turntable rails before they pic ...

I have a still in the box unpainted CBC. The body colour is a deep red & the roof is unpainted clear.

It's fitted with coarse profile black plastic wheels of 10mm dia.

The box doesn't have any class ...

Thanks for all this. I can't find any reference to the subject in my Regulations or General Appendix books, just mentions that the Guard must make sure his van has them. So it's looking at photos now. ...

I hope someone can help.

To complete some models of NSWGR guards vans in the late steam era I need to fit some "tail discs".

Looking at photos, some of these were triangular & some circular. Does th ...

Thanks for the reply. I've had a lot of trouble logging in here lately.

Unfortunately I don't have a copy of the instructions, which has got me into this trouble in the first place.

Tryi ...

I have a standard Eureka D50 with sound.

Today I pressed buttons 1&0 together & an American voice said "ID 21 disconnected" (21 is the loco's program number).

I can't reverse this. The loco's sound  ...

Thanks for the replies. Lambing Flat, the article I was thinking of is in fact in Issue 142, referring to the Trax FS & BS cars.

Over the years I'd got the idea into my head that the first of the Tra ...

I just tarted up an old Powerline MHO that'd never been used, doesn't look too bad but it rides much higher than other passenger stock. I seem to recall that AMRM had an article on lowering them many  ...

Just had a quick squiz, will certainly return later & check it out properly.

Well done that lot! Wish you success.

As for personnel, etc, I don't know these people & have no comment. I wish the people producing the mag well.

My principal issue is that Australian prototype modelling should be encouraged & if this  ...

I don't have a problem with the magazine's Ozcentric focus. Overseas magazines mostly concentrate on their own local prototypes, MR does & at least two British magazines make it plain in their titles  ...

Where are the daily articles in the Australian about "how your money's being spent" reviewing this massive influx of dosh borrowed by our government?

Poor Joshy. He was the one who was finally going  ...

I run my layout using a sequence timetable - a train works out to the terminus & later on it goes back again.

In my admittedly half hearted attempts at timetabling I've found that shunting takes up a ...

The term is also used on the 1:1 scale railroads. Another word for what in Oz is called running in.

Thanks for the reply.

Answering my own question, I've just received a lengthy phone call from Al. He's been unwell but is now back on deck. Sounding pretty chipper.

I've been trying to contact AR Kits via emails, snail mail & phone for weeks now, not getting a reply. Does anyone know if there are any issues with the firm at the moment?

The kickback style of plan, where trains travel most of the length of the layout in one direction & then reverse gets a lot of track in, as you've managed here.

The loco depot looks about right to si ...

Some time ago-20years at least, there was a 4 wheel flat truck stored for a while in the Mittagong factory sidings. Shorter than a KF, I assumed it was an SF, but apparently not so. Don't know what it ...

Thanks for the thoughts & info. I'm hoping to buy the new book on NSW goods stock, but retirement income coupled with recent surgery costs (so much for being in a health fund all these yea ...

Hi Salty & all praise to Matthew Fisher.

SF wagons were short wheelbase 4 wheel flats introduced about the turn of the 20th century. They get a bit of a mention in Ron Preston's goods train book. I u ...

Aeons ago Casula Hobbies did a "kitbash" kit for an SF flat truck. It basically consisted of a pair of S truck frame sides & a flat top. I bought a few & built one. The little mongrels have always int ...

Good news indeed.
