I did a quick load trial with my 3806 and it easily lifted 25 four wheel wagons plus van from a standing start halfway up a 1in 50 grade. It would have handled more. Hopefully it will be a long term r ...

FREE. Pick up in Newcastle Lake Macquarie area.

I have a large L Girder constructed baseboard module to give away. Approximate old school dimensions 11’ x 2’ standing 4’ high. Very sturdy. It  ...

You plan on using Peco Code 75. I think that is Bullhead rail which is probably more British than US style. Peco Code 83 would be more US or Australian. Code 100 is cheaper if finances are tight.  Som ...

Have you considered Bachmann G Gauge Thomas and associated trains? Otherwise you are looking at Hornby or Bachmann 00/H0 or maybe Brio type wooden trains. Target/KMart etc have other sorts of Thomas t ...

I attended on Saturday and used the train. That worked well as previously I have driven from Newcastle to Liverpool. At 8.45, the queue was shorter than previous ones. My  pre purchased  ticket made f ...

I am not sure what other people have found but I have just completed a load trial of my Wombat 30T on my layout. I tested it on a 1 in 50 gradient formed using a Woodlands Scenics 2% incline system. T ...

I have just given my Wombat 30T it’s first test run on a friend’s DC layout. This was its first time out of the box, so the locomotive was as delivered. My friend’s layout doesn’t have any gra ...

Thanks John. Apologies for posting the question twice. Slow internet. I appreciate your information. Yes, trying to take stock of my collection and reduce excess. 57 Class on a block load of RU’s. P ...

Can anyone tell me the wagon numbers that came in Pack B and C. I have mixed the individual boxes. Thanks in advance if you can.

I went to Liverpool yesterday. I thought it was well organised. The entry at 9.00 was efficient. The hall was well laid out and there was a good range of layouts. Mainly  familiar but high quality one ...

As Ikerman said, avoid silver (tin) track as it will rust outdoors overnight.. A Bachmann Big Hauler 4-6-0 should give good service if you can get one but they have several quality/detail levels so so ...

So now ARTC has the transfer on the 8th April, as "CANCELLED"....

6029 no good?

The link on Facebook posted by Thomas Worley is actually dated as 8th May, so is this an ea ...

What has happened with the 30T is a tragedy on many levels. I am sure Geoff didn't set out to rip people off. This was not a money making scam and it has clearly cost him dearly. Before people think a ...

Gary,

If you go to James McInerney's Lambing Flat site you will find an early post he did on a Lima 38.

[quote=Lloyd]This year the program listed 38 stands, which included the ticket office and trade stands. There were about 12 layouts. Binalong, Dungog and Ashburn were NSW HO, Valley Heights and Model ...

[quote="danpickard"]Couldn't care less about what show specials or new releases were there, but would be interested to know what models and layouts were out for display and entertainment. The Epping ...

If you go to the Powerline website they do list certain spares. Not sure if they have the one you are after.

Yesterday I caught the train (and bus) to Newcastle. Mytrain from the Sydney direction arrived at Broadmeadow Platform 1 at 10.55. Using Platform 1 meant I didn’t have to use the subway to transfer  ...

Ebay, love it or hate it, is one way to determine an item's value in the eyes of a fairly wide audience. Put a couple of items up at a low starting price and see what happens. That's the beauty of an  ...

The first test for this public transport revolution and revitalization of Newcastle will be New Year’s Eve. There are no trains running beyond Broadmeadow and the roads around the Honeysuckle precin ...

[quote=Magic Man]Why would JE move into British outline? The market is saturated, anyway I heard he was looking at retiring, goodness knows what will become of all his tooling, would there be anyone w ...

Sorry for typo, Britrains

Sorry to add to the speculation but JE said he was moving into British outline. The Aftoys site has a loco that looks like a Flying Scotsman, listed as a HO locomotive. Will a HO Flying Scotsman be Br ...
