  1. Bus wire is thicker because electricity flows through it to/from lots of droppers. So dropper wire can be thinner and cheaper than bus wire but it doesn't have to be.
  2. Great pic of that weird bogie. Coil secondary springs like the B5 but maybe set more laterally, like the dampers, to help with tracking/ride?
  3. In the back of my mind there lurks a layout set on the Carndonagh extension. It had a ghost train apparently, after closure...
  4. Now that's a proper junction!
  5. Quinquireme of Nineveh from distant Ophir, Rowing home to haven in sunny Palestine, With a cargo of ivory, And apes and peacocks, Sandalwood, cedarwood, and sweet white wine Quick, I hear some of this stuff can still be found in Sainsburys...

    There's always dockleaves to fall back on, but watch out for the nettles.
  7. Look carefully and you'll see the Laws of Physics are overloaded!
  8. I would be interested too, looks very decent.
  9. NIR


    Now that *is* nuts

    I'm sorry Noel but your 0.0001% assumes the virus is not going to spread any further when the reality is it is spreading faster and faster every day that passes. It is going to happen now, everywhere, and the death rate is higher than 3%

    With any kind of bug the realistic objective is not to eliminate it but to slow it down and masks are effective in doing this, as are reducing social contact and avoiding international travel. If you don't feel like doing this for yourself then at least do it for the sake of others.

    IE logo period

    This invites the question: did the NIR or NIR ligature ever have a name?

    0%, isn't that just the small numbers fallacy though.

    At our local airshow back in the 80s you would get fighters on active duty with NATO turning up, those fellas didn't give a shit, fast and loud and low, over built up areas!
  15. Peco bullhead looks good as an OO gauge proxy for proper Irish gauge in 4mm. I think their non-bullhead is OO gauge but at 3.5mm scale so the sleeper spacing is wrong, and it does look wrong.
