Hi Ed.  Thank you for your reply. Is that why EM fans faff around with wheels axles and track? and don’t rate the attempts of OO Modellers. To me that is worse than Rivet Counting. Best wishes Kevin

Basically, yup :lol:

EM and P4 modellers are doing their own thing, which is great for them and good luck to 'em.

Personally, I only want to represent a railway that looks good to me, I ain't bothered if it isn't exactly a scaled down version of the real thing.

Life's too short.


Ed

Hi Ed.  Thank you again. EM and P 4 carry the same passengers as any other gauge. Best wishes Kevin

Grafar Prairie chassis, modified. LOL/BOL. Shows how long ago the kit was designed. When I was doing this I found that with w/m kits in 4mm Bachmann USA N-scale chassis were better due to the smaller scale of 1:160 rather than UK 1:148. Wheels looked more narrow gauge.

Seen a few Prairie chassis on UK ebay Nigel, but I'm trying to avoid really old ones with pizza cutter wheels.

Hi Ed.    Best wishes, but I don’t know if I will around that long, that to see it finished the way I am feeling? It is being cheerful that keeps me going . Best wishes Kevin

Chin up Kevin, as my old Mum used to say, "there's always someone worse off than you".

Hi Ed.  Yeah well, but when I had high blood pressure before and it went too low they stopped the tablets, but they were different. And this time I feel so rotten that I can hardly stand up. Best wishes Kevin

Couple of pictures of the bridge I've been (very slowly) working on.

Done with my phone and a bit out of focus, very little light in here and I forgot it will be getting dark earlier today.

Thanks Claus, although as someone on another forum pointed out, I think I got the buffer stop the wrong way round :oops:
