Thanks both.

You should have seen Sue's face when she opened hers! It was a picture! She was soooo pleased, all the unwrapping stopped and we had to go and give it a run. :D

Very nice... While you are there with your lovely locos, will they turn in a space of just 6ft? Someone is asking on another post.

Hi MG, yes they will, Heyside as 6' curves but this is considered to be the smallest practical size for turns.

Diameter or radius? He is mentioning diameter by the looks of it.

Quote from a very experienced kit builder and manufacturer about a W1 he makes...….The model will go round 6 ft radius curves....just. If you want to get it round tighter, you're on your own!
