Point rodding.
« on: February 11, 2018, 06:50:20 pm »
Does anyone know if there is scale point rodding equipment available in N? I was lead to believe that the 2mm chaps were bringing some out, but I have neither seen it, nor can I find it on their website.
Failing that does anyone know of an article on how to scratch build it.?
Cheers
Bob

There is an article in the current/latest MRJ -260 - on how to make it. Mostly about the point rodding stools as the other bits, cranks etc have been available as etches for quite a while. All the bits are now listed on the 2mm shop 1 (track) page.

Thanks Caz. Fabulous layout. I have had a close look and it all looks relatively simple to do. Now to the signal wires......

Thanks Izzy. I did look in the right area. Old age, bad eyesight and a recent heart attack are my reasons for missing it  ::)
I shall return to the site and shop 1 and have another look.

Yes, the 2mmSA shops have a wide range of stuff, quite amazing really when you consider the size of the membership, and I often get mesmerized when I go to order something, know it's there, but can't find it in the listing, when usually it's right in front of me!
