PostSubject: An inspector calls   Fri Jul 24, 2009 8:46 pm

A newly ballasted and aligned section of track is completed and the feared MOW inspector, Carlos Eebs, pulls up in his speeder to inspect the work Crying or Very sad


But all seems well as he seems unable to get out of the vehicle





So all is well

good night children, everywhere

Very Happy

I checked on the ballast this morning and the PVA glue I used to consolidate the shoulders hase set nicely. I hope this stops the stones beingf washed away in the rains.

Well I was wondering what happened to that little speeder!

Like the MoW crane wagon thing too - is that something you made or was it bought like that? I'd love to be able to get hold of the crane bit on its own somehow

Hello Clive, teh derrick crane is available on it's own and Jeremy at Dragon had them in stcok at the open day , he may well still have them.
They are rather nice, made of brass, and the winding gear operates.

And the stolen by the birds and chickens.

Glad to see the little MOW vehicle is earining it's keep. And glad too that all is well with picture posting. There are some jolly scenes there that are difficult to take at dusk.

The signals look so nice that I don't thing I'll bother making any more even though the idea was good.

Cheers Geoff, have pinged Jeremy a PM so we'll see. I tried looking for it on his site, but no luck - only a big old PIKO one.

Nice one, thanks for the tip-off. Cool . May one be so vulgar as to enquire about how much cash changed hands?

I bought one for 40 Clive but that was 'open day prices'. I think he was giving us a good 5-10% discount.

I can vouch for their quality. The model is made by USA trains but there is no part number on the box.
It is labelled as a winch.

I hope you got your 5% GSN discount, which he should be giving us actually.
Glad it worked out

Your were there in spirit. Wink

I have not entered into any specific agreements with Dragon G scale concerning fixed discounts but I believe without formalities of passwords and alike Jeremy is striving to offer favourable terms to all those that are from forums like us.

There was discussion of future trading directed at the French market and we await developments.

So if anyone wants something I would recommend you say that you're from this forum (if he doesn't know) and ask him for his best price.

Perhaps we should all mention CGT when ordering?

Well I think from the weekend Jeremy went away with a good picture of who we are.

And as he has done with other forums he seems keen to do similar business with us.

It all that beer and wine your were relentlessly pouring down his throat helped Geoff. drunken Laughing

Seriously for my part, I am keen on promoting good relations with a reliable, value-for-money G scale (or gauge for Brian Smile ) supplier as there isn't such in France.

I'm clear on Gauge Carl, it's just scale that get's confusing!

I'll just have to stop visiting other railways1

Received: 1 package from Messrs Dragon -

Ordered yesterday afternoon - paid for 30 mins ago - arrived 5 mins ago!

It's only because I am away in NI at the mo that it is not already out on the line, being photographed etc.

Nice one Jeremy

Well I've got me crane, and very nice it is too... I am pondering though, how I might allow the arm to be raised/lowered. As far as I can tell, the chain that holds the arm at its normal angle can be pulled to raise it, but then there is nothing to fasten on to, to hold it there. What would be even better is some sort of winding handle in the same way that raises/lowers the hook. But I shall have to give that some thought. Could be a nice little winter/evening project-ette.
