For me, it was the ladders restricting bogie swing.

Thanks Barkfast.  That worked.  One driving gear was cracked and had to be taken off.  My Black Gear replacement doesn't fit it.  Unfortunately, that means one less driven axle and now my U boat set w ...

[quote=cootanee]I decided to have a go with remote uncoupling, installing the 321 magnet using the jig. No matter what I try the couplers don't release. Checked the trip pin with the Kadee gauge seems ...

I need help.

I have a Southern Rail U Boat power car which has a "clicky" gear needing replacement.  Despite a lot of looking and poking, I can't see how to disassemble the bogie.  It seems to have a ...

Not being an electronics whizz I have only an idea of what is developing here.  But I'm  pleased to see there appear to be experts working on it.  Thank you for sharing.

If one side of the base should otherwise be flat, put it on a sheet of glass, put it in an 80 degree oven for 15 minutes, check, and if it has returned to "flat" take it out and let it cool.  If the f ...

[quote=apw5910]Been reading about rear end banking up Raglan and Tumulla, mainly prototype articles from Roundhouse and Byways. A couple of ancient articles about Tumulla in AMRM mentioned it might be ...

Can anyone help?  I'm trying to take the body off a Eureka NSW 38 class (streamlined).  I've got the front free no problem.  I've taken out the two screws holding the rear end but I still can't separa ...

The kit in my bottom left drawer.

To provide insulation, if either the suggested styrene or nail polish approach is not to your liking, try the old fashion electrical tape trick.  Cut it to size and stick it to the chassis.

You might need to elaborate a little on "does not run that well".  Is the problem structural/mechanical (twisted chassis, gear misalignment etc), or electrical (lack of pickup, intermittent shorting o ...

AMRM served the hobby, and me, brilliantly for many years.  But, for me it no longer serves my needs and I stopped buying it two years ago.  Whether that is because I have moved on in the hobby, and p ...

I'm with Railway Dog.  Start with sequencing.  No time pressure!

A quick comment.  I've just got back home to the south coast after spending four hours at the exhibition.  There were some issues which need improvement (ain't it the way every year) but I enjoyed it, ...

I've successfully done three Trainorama driving wheels (but maybe my luck will change on future attempts).

I lay the offending loco on its side and apply low power so the wheels turn reasonably slowl ...

As David has pointed out, and using your image as a guide, the size of your layout in HO scale will need to be quite large.  I'm guessing, but the image appears to cover a length of about 4-500 metres ...

If, like me (until I followed the link), you are wondering what STS is, the following quote is from the page which "Bevan" is referring to:

And it works well Roachie. Well done.  I do the same.  The only thing we miss is the coupler swing (with self centreing) but an appropriate shank length will avoid buffer locking.

[quote=Gremlin]Have purchased some Woodlands Scenics rock molds and need to make some rocks - what sort of plaster should I use?

Is there any advantage to using Woodland Scenics (special blend or s ...

Six members of the Eurobodalla Model Railway Club (centred on Batemans Bay in southern NSW) toured Sydney attractions last weekend.

On Saturday we visited the NSW Rail Transport Museum in Thirlemer ...

You don't even have to go to a quarry, unless you need its specific colour.

Get a bucket of sand from any fresh water river bed and sift it to size.  You will find it will "flow" onto your track ea ...
