One place that may provide some information is the North Yorkshire County Archive, Malpas Road, Northallerton. Some time ago I did go there to see if there was any info on the Sand Hutton Estate and the quarry railway at Kepwick (which from the quality of the remaining stonework was obviously estate...

Resistance Soldering

This may be of help http://www.fourtrack.co.uk/acatalog/rsu_ba.pdf Note the date. You are lucky to have a unit to experiment with. I looked into obtaining a unit 3 or 4 months ago and found none available in the UK now. There seemed to be several reasons given for this, and I came to the conclusion ...

You do gnot have to go to a chemist for IPA (as isopropyl alcohol is known in the UK electronics industry). It is used as a cleaning/degreasing agent so any electronics/electrical workshop usually has a can of the liquid. It is not a restricted substance. FYI, I pay around £5.50 for a 1 litre can. I...

I'll risk raising my head above the parapet on this subject. As it is something I have been playing with for some time The problem I have is finding a way of tackling the subject without getting long winded and without unintentionally upsetting anyone. In the context of a layout, sound has to be app...

Couplings

Thanks for your reply Steve. Since my original posting I
decided to take the plunge and purchase a kit of 0 Gauge
and TT. Then run some tests.

Interestingly, it is possible to use both sizes together


Hmmmm, that possibility didn't cross my brain cell 8)

I know what you are thinking, not this subject again :roll: After taking on board the accumulated knowledge on this site I decided upon DG Couplings for both Gn15 and Gnine. If I have got this right then, for Gn15, the 0 Gauge Coupling is preferred over the 00 Gauge as it is the same size but using ...

Comparing the "original" livery with the green of Steve's model just shows how the lavender and white gives the prototype a terrible air of "naffness" which it perhaps doesn't deserve. Unfortunately, I was brought up with naffness, one of the local agricultural engineers always ...
