Hi Philip
That is extremely generous of you - thank you.
I look forward to seeing them at the Modellers Workshop. How can we get a length of track on which to run them?
Do you mind if I advertise, on this Forum and in the June Newsletter, the fact that they will be there (your car permitting!). It should increase the attendance considerably.
Regards from Roger

There are several sources of Gauge 1 track. Cliff Barker is perhaps the most popular. However, it would be nice to have LNWR track, which brings me to a question I posted elsewhere on the forum - if anyone has drawn an LNWR track chair in 3D CAD. A commercial glass case for each model and LNWR chaired-track would set them off beautifully and protect them too.

Can the LNWR Society be seen to display beautiful LNWR models on Midland track? The shame of it!

Well, there has been no answer to my request, so I conclude that model LNWR track, at least in the larger scales, doesn't exist. So, I am having some plain and joint chairs solid printed in Gauge 3 and Gauge 1. I have NO plans for them to be commercially available, but if the Society accepts Philip's kind gift then I'd be happy to supply suitable chairs for somebody to make the track in the display cases.

Two things.

I picked up the current PECO catalogue this week and a gauge one suitable Code 200 bullhead rail section is available; (Streamline ready built track appears to be flat bottom?) . That makes 5.08mm for the web, head width 2.46 mm and foot width 2.87 mm.

Also; I noticed the BBC report on the Pete Waterman sale; if you've not seen it it's on:- http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-32194297

So I was wandering around a charity shop as you do, and came across a book titled "A Train is For Life", Pete Waterman.

Contained within is a photograph of No1304 Jeanie Deans and also Webb Compound C1 No1814.

Interesting points at the start of the book are that Geoff Holt built the LNWR engines, and also further to discussion on the day these were first presented at Kenilworth regarding if etched parts had been used or if they were cut from the living metal:
"By watching George and Geoff it was obvious that certain parts of their skills could be reproduced by computers. We have used etch technology for well over 40 years now...."

The locos would have been painted either by Brian Badger or Lawrie Goddard, which presumably is a typo in the book for Larry Goddard.

ISBN: 978-0-7110-3329-0

Not a bad find for a quid

This is probably not the best place to discuss Gauge 1 model track, but I am responding to a previous thread.

In the latest Newsletter is an appeal for somebody to supply Gauge 1 track for four models at Kenilworth. There is plenty available off the shelf, but only with Midland or Great Eastern chairs. As you can read above, I have had some LNWR chairs specially made and if anyone would care to make up a section of track I'll have some more cast at my cost. They are whitemetal with a peg for fixing to sleepers which need to be jig drilled and come in four types: standard with LH and RH keys, and wider joint chairs also with LH or RH keys.

If anyone is willing or considering making track for the LNWRS please get in touch and I will explain how they work.

I am very pleased to say that a capable member has come forward to make up this track, so the lovely engines will sit on correct LNWR track. Not sure whether he wishes to be named, so will just say thank you John.
