    Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

    I know mine is not correct, does not match the period photos, but it is close enough for me. So, on the perforated cases was the back light globe external to the case? I think on mine, the globe goes inside the case?

    Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

    That's a good photo of the red bezel on the gauge. I remember reading a while back on here that it was possible to paint the inside of the gauges to make them look like the originals. That does not seem to be the case with the CAV gauge. What were the Smiths gauges like? similar with the red...

    Ford GT40 Anthology - due 20th October 2021

    agree, multiple crib sheets for multiple GT40s. I certainly had similar thoughts when reading it......I cant decide on a particular car to replicate as there is not one in particular, above the rest, that screams out to me.

    Australia, Land of the Giants

    195T I can understand. I have a 40% grade that I’m signalling for at the moment. It’s currently classed as a momentum grade. Ie if the train has enough run up, it can crest the grade. There are no signals on the grade, so no reason for the train to stop on the hill. If I needed to put a signal...

    Chassis drawings book in the works...

    My copy arrived down under yesterday. It was print number 60 of the 365 being produced. I hear that the number sold was getting quite high, certainly in the high 200s. I have had a quick look through the book and am very happy with it. What a treasure.
