Got my Barnstaple working fine now – thanks to you and all your step by step advice!
Here’s a few shots of my layout – it is 8 x5 ft, based on a plan I found in an old HRCA mag.
The LMS N2 tank I did as a renovation attempt on a scrap body, the Silver King I had as a
boy and still goes fine, the Farish Prairie was dublo wheeled and 3 railed for me by Dennis,
dublo surgeon. Runs ok but very noisy!
Have found great pleasure in fixing old models, usually not too bad as so well made in first place!
