arrived today. luckily not wet today, so arrived dry.
letters page article explains why older Peco small radius curved point was required. I think I got the other one on offer as I find them very useful.

Here too, saving it for after the kids are in bed so I can read it in peace (instead of in pieces).

Mine arrived at lunchtime - I need to bring to your attention a small typo, on Page 13 - the address for Carls Scrapbook site on "Chicago Fork" has lost a letter - it should be http://www.carendt.com/

Mine arrived in deepest Hampshire yesterday, full of insperation. Being a new subsciber to both the mag and this forum it has been a eyeopener and tempted me to try American layout. Biggest trouble for me is the is the terminolgy can anyone translate the popular ones?

Derek, like with most things in life, Britain & America are two nations divided by a common language. Just as with cars/automobiles, railway/railroad terminology can be completely different Laughing
Here's a few just off the top of my head... UK term first.....
Wagons are Cars.
Bogies are Trucks
Passing Loops are Sidings
Sidings are Spurs
Stations are Depots
Points are Switches
Sleepers are Ties
Rails are.... oh, Rails Razz

There is no direct UK equivalent of a US Short Line, basically a smaller (may still be huge by UK standards), private-owned line to handle freight between customers and the Class 1 Railroads (CSX, BNSF etc...)

That's a start, anyway..... Wink
