To be honest the ARM 38 class steam locomotive and tender looks to have been designed by two teams one for the loco and the other for the tender.  The Loco is quite good runs well and has plenty of pu ...

Removing the profile photo on your Google account will stop that and put up just a figures outline of a head or something from memory in place of it, not your head outline though.  It is a sort of fil ...

The longer Geber leaves the cars out in the open the worse they are going to get so that in the end all he will have is a load of scrap metal.  The museum cannot put them under cover for him simply be ...

There is a real difference that can be seen between the tangerine version of a 800 and the later colour on the models, the Tangerine is a bit darker than the the others. As for running, they run nicel ...

On the ARM 38 that I have I checked all the wheels the wheels are all in proper BTB gauge on both loco and tender according to my NMRA gauge sorry Terry Flynn. I also checked the wheel width and those ...

Why could you not run a tramline into the airport along the median strip of the road, other high voltage would be present in any airport and the overhead for the tram is not exactly very high either.  ...

Well I have now got it rough painted still needs fettling though. The chassis and electronics have not been altered except at what was the cab end where a small piece of plastic around the centre surf ...

There were actually 4 of them from memory at Dry Creek two on standard gauge and two on broad gauge but only one on each gauge was used at a time, they would use them as demand needed though.  They ha ...

The quality of the model is excellent it is a bit on the light side though but you can easily add some weight into it mine are DC but the DCC ones might be a bit different to add some weight into them ...

[quote=CPH8]Do you remember a boiler sitting out in the middle of the sewage farm? It had two firebox openings and I often wondered if it was from one of those American locomotives - I think they were ...

That is quite true about the sloping sides etc but as I want to use as much of the original as possible without resorting to make a complete new body I have done it this way.  I am not altering the de ...

While having 7 of these locomotives now and quite nice they are to I was looking at a book on Australian diesel locomotives and came upon the standard gauge WAGR H class loco's and the 2 Goldsworthy M ...

From memory Powerline wheelsets where larger in size than normal wheels on the prototype and they also had semi pizza cutter type flanges on them, not as deep as Lima's but still deep though.  Later P ...
