Re: Railroad specific paints

Mick.

Thanks for the update. I have rang a number of times over the last 2 months asking about these paints being told they are on order and should be here in the next 2 or 3 weeks. Disappointing as we US modellers need a supply of railroad paint.

Happy Model railroading.

James.

Re: Railroad specific paints

An update... I have now had a conversation with Steve at Model Railway Solutions, he has told me the order for Tru Colour paints should be with him in the next three weeks. It would appear the road to getting these has been long and a lot of hard work for Steve so I for one will be supporting him. I...

Re: The NMRA National Convention Comes to the UK

Koos. Are there any updates that you can post on here, please? I would guess that as we start to get closer too, gosh what a thought, 2022 there will be a need for local NMRABR members to volunteer for jobs to support the Convention Team, so would suggest that could well be listed here also. I am lo...

Re: NMRA HO Standards Gauge

Hiya Lee.

In case you have been unable to find one, today I needed to ring Mech Models so asked Barry about the HO NMRA Gauges and was told they are in stock.

Hope this helps. Stay Safe.

With this in mind I pose a question regarding Baldwin DS-4-41000 and the Air Horns used by the Pennsy on this model. Date time frame for this is f...
