Midlands Model Eng Show

Hi All Just a quick line to let anybody who was interested in going to this year's show that the organisers have announced today that the 2020 show is now officially cancelled. Still, look on the bright side, that gives us a year and a bit to save the pennies for the 2021 show, lol. Best regards to ...

3D Printed Wagons.

Hi everyone. I have just been watching a piece of film on YouTube showing the building-up of a 5" Gauge GWR Shunters Wagon from a 3D printed kit by "3DPROLLINGSTOCK" and would like to know if anyone here has any experience of these kits, they seem to be very good value for what they are. I realise t...

Re: 17D Wagons.

When I was looking for "scale" Cattle for the Cattle Wagon, I found some resin sculptures of a Bull made by "Leonardo.co.uk" in their "Reflections" range. They were rather expensive as they are meant to be artistic sculptures in a gold colour but they are very detailed and just need repainting. I pu...

17D Wagons.

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all safe and well. I just wanted to ask if anybody else had noticed that 17D have taken 5" gauge Wagons out of their Ready-to-roll Price List. I bought one of their 5" Loriots last year and was very pleased with it and was contemplating getting another wagon in the not to...

Re: Turnout Backnumbers.

May I just take a moment to say a big Thank You to Bill Sharp for ,first of all, taking the time to get my details from the GL5 Society and ringing me to say that he could provide me with my missing Turnouts and, secondly, taking the time and effort to actually print them off and send them to me. It...

I only have a short ,single-...

Re: Mica B

Hi Ben
Just a quick question that will have an obvious answer to most on here but I will ask anyway......I assume the chassis parts are slot and tab for silver-soldering?

Miniature Railway Magazine.

I recently came across an advert for the above mentioned magazine and thought that I would get a copy to see what it is like, being a relatively new guy on the 5" scene. I have since received the copy and ,personally, find it a good read. Not quite as much 5" stuff but even the bigger gauges is stil...

Re: Help wanted by new guy please.

Many thanks for the copy of the article Dave. I did not expect there to be so much info in the third article, It will be most useful. Please let me know how I can re-imburse you for your trouble.
Best wishes
