No use for it anyway, deemed an OHS hazard.

I generally use a smear of silicon sealant.

Sounds odd I know, but it works. Best treat joints with care as they are liable to fall apart easier than, say, Araldite etc.

Bogies will remain for the time being under the Tait. Their fate may be decided sometime in the future should the need arise.

It seems much of the control equipment is missing from the Drivers Cab, ...

Mario from ATM will be leaving before 1200 Thursday for the trip to Maldon after he has finished with the Tait unloading at YVTR. He'll be at Maldon late afternoon I imagine.

We have been simply using flat top trolleys to take out sleepers to required locations. No big deal, we are only a small crew and can only do so much at at time. So having a huge sleeper drop is of no ...

Floquil all the way.

I find SEM paints either too thick/dense, or too thin/opaque.

The Diesel Blue seems to take days before setting......


Seems that most think of plastic RTR loco's.
