Re: What's on the bench?

There was plenty of clearance. It was the friction of the flat/blunt axle just dragging in the sideframes with the extra weight of the coach body. Tried oil, grease & graphite all to little avail. With the pin point axles they most certainly roll now. My glass top workbench has a 1 degree slope on i...

Re: What's on the bench?

I have finally got my Rokal pass cars turned into decent / close coupled runners. Originally, I just replaced the wheels with the newer versions available from Mueller in Germany. These were better but, still ran with the brakes on all time. After a bit of experimentation they now run faster than th...

Re: Naples sTreeT - a Micro Switching Layout

Didn...
