That looks really good. Have you painted the frogs, or are you not using the cast ones any more? They look great.

I will then supply chairs pre trimmed to fit around the cast K crossing area.

Will these be available separately to fit round the cast crossing on points

They are the same castings, but yes blackened using brass blackening fluid.

Yes, I can also supply these as cosmetic chairs for adding around the cast frog/K crossing.

I am now just spending my Sunday evening with a beer, trying to work out the next steps in the project... :beers:  8)

Are code 40 bullhead fishplates/rail joiners likely to be available soon?

Thanks,

I hope you know what you've done, Wayne. Now you've produced the Single Slip I'm going to have to plan and build a Midland Railway layout and buy a bunch of Farish Midland & LMS loco's. And I suspect many others are thinking the same thing. I hope you're happy with yourself...

I just made an order for a couple of lengths of flexi and the jig. My layout is too far on to really take advantage of this amazing track but I can at least try a bit of it.

Is there a three way point in the pipeline?

Thanks for your order.

Yes, I've been looking at the geometry for a 3 way point...
Thanks,
Wayne.

The slip looks good!

I've just updated Anyrail and am very pleased to see Finetrax present in the library. Will the half metre flexi be added at some point?
