Re: CB&Q SM-18 36' stock car

Parcel went off to Leadville today. I have sent trucks with both types of wheelsets, 714 & 1025 couplers, height gauge and section of track.

I will discuss options with Leadville once he has the samples to see which will give the best results.

Re: Some British suppliers

Lincoln models - to get something running fairly quickly I have ordered one of the W&M railbuses which I will plonk on an old bTTb VT chassis.

Hopefully with production and postage times it will be here before Christmas.

>> If you click on them they show up correctly. I have no idea why it does that. <<

Don't worry about it. The clever ones amongst us ( which is ALL TT modelers - isn't it?? ) will print the page out and turn the paper right way round!!!

Re: CB&Q SM-18 36' stock car

Didn't think of that one. Not sure what he means by revise the frame so will check. Would be ideal if we can get it set up correctly for the bogies/trucks and couplers. One question - for all of you - If possible do you want it set up the European standard wheelsets or the finer flanged US RP-25 whe...
