" Construction article sent off for future publication "


Hi    Ken  :wave:

Construction article ... Eh !  :brill:


I've never actually got my paws on a 'Narrow Gauge Downunder'.  :f:

Oztrainz tells me it is a 101% super well done magazine for sure.  :cool:

Quarterly I think he said ?  :time:


Jeeez ... Just looked in the Piggy-Bank ...  ;)

... I haven't had a subscription to anything ...

... since stopping the 'N.G.& S.L.G.' years ago.  :us:


Mmm ...  :old dude:  There's a few coins in there.


:java::moose:


Si.

Si.

I have to admit 'Narrow Gauge Down Under' is the only magazine I get,

Oztrainz is on the money!, only downside is that it is quarterly.  :f:


Got hooked with the first issue and never regretted it,

had my first published article in the magazine. :2t:



Need to reduce photo size,

and will post a few more items of the rolling stock I've modelled,

from Peru and other parts of the world.  :)

Best book I have found on South America is 

"Railways at the End of the World"


Contact the authors at this site.

I do have a copy of the book.


Lots of ideas for modelling,

including wind powered rolling stock,  L:

wonder how to build one ?


A few years ago in Continental Modeller,

there was a review for an axle mounted motor drive setup.

Forgot to take down the information though,  :bang:  :bang:

would have been the answer!

I don't know about commercial drives,

but the poms have scratchbuilt them.

Those are very neat,

still oversized for a project I am thinking of doing.


Meanwhile in the car shop, the "Master Maniac!",

is working on a conversion project of a Bachmann stock car,

into a WP&YRly stock car #955


Next up ?

Tank car #11 again WP&YRly.
