I have tried the things mentioned but I still cannot read some postings on the site. I am using Windows 7 home edition premium and am using internet explorer but I do not know what version (7-8-9).

Hi David

I cannot re3ad the top few posts on this page because of the adverts. I have tied the compatibility mode but it makes no differance. Why have the management given others the right to edit my postings and comments? I thought that 1984 had gone

Hi can any body tell me how to get rid of the adverts on thne RH side of the page? I try to look at several postings and they seem to spread right across the page, and a strip of adverts blocks half the text. I spoke to Diane about it and she suggested it my be the version of internet explorer I am using. Can anybody help please, as I cannot carry on using the forum?

Thanks Peter

Thread: steam brake cylinder

Hi Simon I think you will find the Princess of Wales was deseigned by Martin Evans but it is a lovely loco. As others have said the steam cylinder should be anchored to obtain purchase on the brake gear.

Hi Brian

Try polly engineering for the cast iron cylinder block for the Q1 . It isa a solid block of cast iron with 2 cored holes, not very dear and I think could be used with the 2P.

Good luck

Hi Brian

Dont worry about the 3mm steel it's only 8 thou smaller than 3 mm just keep the internal ditance between frames as the drawing. My 5 inch Stirling only has 3 mm frames and they seem ok. By the way 3/32 inch is near enough 2.5 mm.

Good luck with the build

Why not try Don Young's 4F and do what I did with my first loco. I built the tender first, it gives you experiance of making frames, axle boxes and wheels etc.

Hi John
The dates of the Martin Evans Stirling articles are 2cnd August 1985 until and including the 7th November 1986.
Good luck and I hope you decide to build it. If you do keep in touch,as I am in France and do not have any model engineers to talk to about problems.

Hi David
I meant can you repeat some or all of them for newcomers and old timers benefit.

Hi David
Great to read the "Rodean" series as LBSC is always good to read. Would it be possible to reprint his " Lobby Chats" as they always contained some good tips

Hi Bob
Martin Evans did a series in the ME some time ago on the Stirling 2-2-2 single, and I know Blackgates does the ex Dave Goodwin castings for it. They also made me a very nice set of flanged boiler plates for it. I am building one myself and can give you the start and finish dates of the MEs you will require. good luck and let me know how you get on

Please could someone tell me the name of the adhesive/sealer that Nick Feast used to construct his tender, and also where I can buy it . I live in France and get all my materials from the UK by phone or on line.

Thread: The end of IMLEC
14/05/2011 16:53:50

I agre with the rule that a winner is allowed to defend the following year with the same loco an d then that loco be excluded for a set time. The same situation occured in the Isle of Man in the fifties with the clubmans TT the BSA Gold Star won year after year and in the end the ACU stopped the races to everyones loss. I hope this does not happen to IMLEC.
