You need to pop over to Didcot to see their crane.

Re: LOW GHYLL

John I read that this is a good P2 motor replacement although it doesn’t have a flywheel.


As I said it is only something I read.

Re: Hills and tunnels - best material.

I was cutting the really thick stuff with a carving knife and there was hardly any mess. Not too bad even with a saw.

Re: Hills and tunnels - best material.

I was given some Celotex to play with and is very good. Much nicer than polystyrene. Not easy to get in small amounts though.

Edit. The thinner stuff is available in smaller sheets. My son used 6 inch thick sheets in his house.
