Re: NRE 'Genset II' from Trainman

Best bit of news is that the finer handrails sets are to be available as retro parts for the first model esp I had a slot of my Xmas time off allocated to doing a Smokey Valley / brass wire replacement on my BNSF model. Saving me some time there :D

Re: PanPastel

REminds me very much of the weathering kits and tools that Tamiya provides, and the applicators can probably be had quite a lot cheaper at Superdrug or Boots etc. However be aware that when you're testing the various kinds of applicators in the cosmetics isle, depending who you are, the shop staff ...

John

Haven't seen these as they appear to be a new product esp with their limited list of stockists. Would be interested to see how what the pricing for them is given all the various tools and applicators - seems like scope to make your own from cosmetic sponges

Re: Newly announced at Trainfest

Interesting that Accurail have annouced a PS4750 covered hopper. Although the protoype was built in huge numbers for a lot of roads and then subsequently into lessor fleets this car has been done by Intermountain (old model with some inaccuracies) and also more recently Tangent (pricy but accurate +...
