" Strange, for a re-release they changed it from 1/72 to 1/76  :)  [whack] :doh: "

Hi Cor  :wave:

Yes ... Very weird ?  L:

1:72 is, I think, the model-plane scale my friend Pat likes. 


1:76 is OO model-train scale ... Right ? 

(Geez, I should check my 'facts' before Posting !)  ;)

Anyone know how come we have TWO scales like these, really close together ?  L:

It aint exactly the only example of this of course.  :P

Def. 'weird' on the part of 'Airfix' though.  :Crazy:

And why did they use ballast on the bridge?
The extra weight makes that the construction has to be extra heavy too.
There other solutions for that.

I understand that this is the way to go today.

A non ballasted bridge will cause a "dip" in the roadbed before and after the bridge,
because the ballast will settle and the steel or concrete bridge doesnt.

This may cause a high powered loco to slip its drivers momentarily,
and then cause stresses on the drive components when she grips the rails again.


.... just noticed I commented to a very old message ....
anyway, maybe its still of interest.
