Well, just a short post today.
(I think most of you are watching the news and reading the papers anyhow)
Fred’s been kind enough to send in this reply to Dan’s question from last time:
“i see no reason why a 65 foot or so long cars cannot be used with 22 in radius they do have a bit of a hang over on the rails that has to be planned for. 22 inch radius will fit quite nicely on a 48 in wide bench and allow for a circle. i took some pictures of 89 foot and 60 foot cars sitting a 22 in radius they will run but the 89 foot are bit of an issue with realism. i am like the majority of blokes here no way to put anything over 22″ in any space i have.
Fred’s post reminded me of Rob’s Big Curve project, which you can see here.
That’s all this time folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
I’ll leave you to get back to the news and the papers.
PS Don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to get off that arm chair and get going. Who knows, your layout could be on here soon…
Ebay cheat still going strong too. Lots of HO stuff at the mo.
