Re: 2023 RMMBC

I don't see anything about location, but we'll find out soon enough I guess. The location of the last one in Queensborough wasn't bad, if a bit of a long trek by bus. Would be cool if it were up at SFU again.

The Hungarian M41 is not a big locomotive... and the 22 is still small next to it

Re: Lincoln Locos

It almost does! When I first opened the package I wasn't near my models and my brain was trying to tell me it's 1:148 even though I knew better.

Re: Lincoln Locos

Well now this thread is relevant to 1:120 too, as Lincoln will do almost anything they have in 1:120, price same as for 3mm scale. I ordered and received a Class 22 shell, here it is beside an SW - British equipment is so small! 20221103_220253.jpg I've got a Piko V90 on order to power it... dimensi...

Re: Some British suppliers

Heads up with Lincoln models - THE SERVICE IS GREAT. I can second this - ordered a Class 22 shell on the 20th, got an email from Lenny yesterday saying it's been shipped, and had the difference in postage vs the £20 I paid refunded. So now it's with the Royal Mail, hopefully the rotating strike act...

Re: Some British suppliers

Cool. I'm seriously thinking of getting an AC railbus body for the same purpose, myself, since they fit in with my Yeovil interest (they ran shuttle services between the three Yeovil stations in the mid 60s). I'm just about to send them payment for a Class 22.

Re: Hornby 2022/23

It seems that incorrect gauge to scale is so normalised that correct scale to gauge is not grasped as a potential reality. It strikes me that it's something related to that: the idea that British models are completely unrelated in scale terms to the rest of the world is so ingrained that people are...

Re: Some British suppliers

The lincoln loco shells certainly hold a lot of promise, especially if your not critical of the chassis unit. I'm going to order a Class 22 shell from them, and then find a Piko V90, because the key dimensions of the V90 (wheelbase, pivot centres, length) are all very close to the 22, and being nar...
