Thanks!
2  Discussion Boards / HO / Pulling Fluff/Hair Off of Side Rods? on: October 03, 2020, 11:54:49 PM
Hi all,
I recently came into possesion of an 0-6-0 after a club member and personal friend died. The engine works, except there's a lot of fluff on one of the side rods (wrapped around the connecting pin) that I believe is affecting running.



I've been trying to pull it out using an Xacto blade and tweezers/pliers, but I can't quite get it. Does anyone have or know of a better way of getting the fluff out? Thanks!

I don't think the UK versions have been released yet, but if you do a search for https://railsofsheffield.com/, they ship to the US.

Here we talk about trains that are made by Bachmann. In the general forum, we talk about real trains as well.

And I'm not entirely sure that it was their choice where the question went. If you look to the right of our names a little bit, it shows "Re: N Scale Thomas." For the person who asked the question, it says "Wanna Discuss Something."

I'm not sure why it would be different, but the same thing happened in another topic on another sub-forum a few days ago.

I'm glad you're on the home-stretch of beating the virus!

I'll be praying for you as well! I've really enjoyed reading through everything you did!

In the kitbashing section of the Large scale parts area, there's a motor for the 0-4-0 Gas Mechanical. Does anyone know about how large the motor is? Like, what are its dimensions? Thanks!

Sorry for the double post, but I got a bit more of my project done today!

Part Two: The Airfield Control Tower & Windsock

I was able to get the airfield control tower put together this week. The top of it doesn't really reflect the original model's design, and was only included to give a rough sense of height. It is only a mock-up project, after all. I didn't include the stairs or the sock itself, but they don't take up much room anyway.

Just curious, could these connect with the Skarloey engines?
Kind of. They all have NEM coupling pockets, so if you switch out a few couplings between the wagons, they could connect, but if you wanted to just connect them without doing anything, they couldn't because they have different couplings.

I don't know if any of you have heard this, but there's a guy on YouTube called InstrumentManiac and he's been doing instrumental covers of the classic Thomas & Friends themes recently. I highly reccomend checking out his channel. I would post a link, but I can't seem to get one using my phone and I don't have access to a computer right now.

I missed the Thomas and Friends presentation part. Does anyone have screencaps from that part of the new products?
If you go to YouTube and search Trainworldtv, you should be able to find the presentation. The Thomas & Friends part starts around 18 minutes in.

This was pretty awesome! Like everyone else, I'm super happy to see the updates to everything, but I'm especially glad to see the new N Scale Tankers! They look great!

Today I started on the Air Traffic Control Tower, although I haven't cut anything yet. It's kind of an interesting building, because it's simple enough that I could just put the bordered detailing on it and paint it, but it's still got that complex control box on top, which I haven't started yet because I'm not quite sure how to do angled stuff like that. Here's a pic of the side with the stairs:



And here are a couple of pictures of what I've done so far. I'm not quite sure that I  positioned the window that's circled in red right or not (it's the one by the stairs on the real model, hence the above picture).

One thing I would like to add. Just looked on trainworld's website and Annie, Clarabel and the Truck's are all showing (add to cart) where as Thomas and Percy are (Taking Back orders) so maybe they are out now? My brains not working 100% today so someone please tell me if I am wrong
That's interesting, it's showing the same for me, too.
