Hi Max,

Nice (and another way to keep the wheel treads clean). Junior scales have to do with cosmetic frames (Kadee do them) or DIY, although no reason why working ones couldn't be done (but it begs the question who cares as you can't see them anyway?). Next up - working hand wheels and Ajax gear units to lock-down those brakes on hills? Compressed air cylinders in the locomotive and working air lines? Under DCC control. Lilliput next stop.

Nigel

Very skilful but what a complete waste of time.  He won't be able to operate the brakes during the vehicle's normal routine on a model railway, so what is the point?

I guess that you could extrapolate that question to all of our endeavours here, Terry.

I just like to watch the proto modellers for fun.

I recently saw a loco carved in a pencil.  :shock:

Hi Terry,

You could stage a derailment and flip-over and have the underside nicely exposed for viewing. Lookatmeeee.

I suppose if you use thick brass it adds some weight to the truck/bogie.
