Someone asked if we could create a website or photo page because they didn't want to use Facebook

Myself and Andy have set up a photo bucket page and will keep this updated as well as Facebook

Cheers Mark

Layout Planning / Peco Setrack Plan Book (Old Version)
« Last post by Knight of the Thistle on Today at 05:37:45 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I'm looking at putting together a small setrack layout for my son. I remember I used to have a copy of the Peco Setrack Plan book - an edition from around 20 years ago - but can't find it anywhere. It differed from the current book - if I recall correctly - as it was much more focused on traditional oval layouts. The new book is good, but many of the layouts are either too big for our needs or are of the fiddle yard to terminus variety.

I've looked on Ebay but just get the newer editions... Does anyone have a copy they would be willing to sell to me for a fiver?

Best wishes,

Matthew

FYI:

My understanding is that the Cadbury family were Quakers and as such Bournville village was effectively good social housing for the work force in accordance with Quaker ethics. (Similar to Boots in Nottingham and Rowntree's in York).

The village is well worth a visit beautiful houses and yes a high standard of care for their employees. Right next to Cadbury World where you can stock up on sweet stuff and enjoy the aroma in the air!

Train Surgery / Re: Grafar Castle gear problem
« Last post by Dr Al on Today at 05:05:25 PM »
I don't think a wearing gear is inherent of a design problem. It's much more likely that the motor moved in its mount, or jumped out of mount (not unknown) and then the worm being poorly meshed caused the wear out.

Why replace everything - just buy a replacement gear from Bachmann....phone Bachmann service and see what they can do.

Cheers,
Alan

Train Surgery / Re: Grafar Castle gear problem

Ok, well I donít think this is a generic problem with Farish coreless locos, it is the first time I have heard of it in here, so it must be down to either the prolonged operation with the drive axle fault that you noticed, overstressing the drive train in some way, or perhaps a lack of lubrication of the gear train.
Perhaps @Dr Al who has repaired many a loco could comment?
