Stop bullying me  ???
Not my best offerings but a bad back and breathing problems rather messed up photo sessions etc :(





The wagons choose not to like my code 80 track with its tight curves so I didn't get to enjoy running them much  :'( nice models tho.
Would try again this week but Shiney is waiting his turn

Very good pictures fella.  Sorry to hear they didn't like your curves. :thumbsdown:  I'm sure it won't matter if you kept them until the weekend. ;)  I like the different levels you have on the layout.

#1...... Ive PMd Shiney to say they will be posted today/tomorrow latest.
#2....the parcel is packed etc.
#3 hmph :-\ there must be a #3 surely
As a youngster when I had a good old Hornby 3 rail train set I was always trying to get it o go 'uphill' and over bridges but always failed to get a satisfactory outcome so now Ive started  (30/40 years later) in N gauge one of my 1st challenges was to get an extra level up above the rest of the layout.

Not good news I'm afraid chaps   :(

Just got them onto my track and it seems there is a problem with both wagons not wanting to go round any curves at all without falling off,so looks like it was not jonclox track that was at fault.

I will PM Tank to see if it's ok for me to effect a repair job as the bogies are quite stiff on their pivot points so as soon as they get to a curve they just want to go straight on.

Hopefully normal service will resume asap  :thumbsup:

Well its good that they have arrived for you but not the rest of the post.
Yes they  did seem stiff to me but I thought it might have been the fact that they are so long and therefore not designed for tight curves.I ont think it was anything that  had done wrong but you ave me worried now :-[

Thanks Bob! :thumbsup:  I have to say that they never came off of my layout, but there weren't tight curves on it.  Good work though. :beers:
