Continental N Gauge / Re: Viessmann 6478 N Wall lamp
« Last post by Globibahn on Today at 05:21:07 PM »
Thank you very much for your reply @ntpntpntp

I think I will be taking that route :)

Viessmann stuff is just bonkers over priced. Or overly high quality, however you wan tot look at it.

I would adapt somehting from an Ebay China sourced street lamp if you are ok with soldering and tinkering.

Yes, the raspberry ripple mk1s:

If you're modelling the WCML then you could also run it with a battered set of Mk1s and a Derby RTC test car:

It was also quite common to see it on a mk4 set substituting for the class 91s. It was also regularly used to rescue HSTs:

N Gauge Kit Built Rolling Stock / Re: Class 71 or 74
« Last post by greenlaneman on Today at 05:04:56 PM »
Some while ago I acquired three Etched Pixels class 71 in resin (second grade castings).
They were designed to be fitted to the Bachmann class 33 with a little bit of filing of the chassis. They are listed on the Etched Pixels website but as unavailable .
Being second grade, they required work, especially around the window openings, and the bottom of the pantograph well needed replacement especially on the loco where the pantograph was not fitted.
They have all been 'completed' and painted in BR blue with yellow noses.
They are currently in my 'round tuit' box for window glazing, decals - especially the loco numbers - and possible changes to the bogie side frames so would be interested in Mr Sprue's bogie side frames x 6

Layout Construction / Re: Midlands Coal & Freight, Late 1980's

Very impressive! Would you not have been a prime candidate for code 40 trackwork...?

Cheers Nick. A pet peeve of mine is wagons and locos bouncing (jigging around) over joints and points. I've been keeping insulated gaps as tight as possible and profiling the edge of rails so there's no lip. My smallest and lightest wagon, the presflo 20T, rolls over them cleanly.

Now... there's a Code 40? I thought Code 55 was the best we had on offer.  :confused1:

Just Googled it... well, you learn something new everyday!

I'd better go and rip it all up and order me some.  :smiley-laughing:

I have heard that Wickness Models provides an excellent service for models that need a bit of work for DCC conversions.

Best wishes.
