My preference is using a propane torch for copper and brass. I have trouble soldering with soldering iron, perhaps because the soldering iron does not get the metal hotter than the solder.

There was a model featured in one of the British magazines a few months back. Can't find it anywhere though. Will keep looking.

Google WDLR or War Department Light Railway for more info

Slater's do a number of kits in On16.5https://slatersplastikard.com/wagons/16NGWagons.php

Can't find the model I was thinking of but here's one in OO9

Mike-all you need is a 1:32 Lindberg Model T kit (just some of the kit). Some styrene/basswood. Grandt Line WSLCO speeder wheels & chain (O scale). A tiny servo motor and gears. AND some r/c stuff under the bed.
Now, will you build it?

Best wishes from Tejas

The 1:32 Lindberg Model A is what I built the Brookville from...well, and a Bachmann Davenport.

Will I build one of these? Maybe sometime but it's down the road a bit. Right now, I have some other things in the queue.

Wow!  There's been some very intriguing information published on this thread.

I came across an interesting writeup on operations on light railways during WWi.  The link to this article is here.  Good reading!

I'd like to say thanks for the link but it never loads. Anyone else having that problem?

Keith's link? That opens for me at the moment ... maybe try again?

The T-Lorry is available as a 1/35 kit by Resicast ... have one on the shelf for "wunna these days" ...

Interestingly, that website wont load on my iPad but I read it on my desktop machine this morning.

That was a great read, Keith. Thanks!

If anyone went to that website and missed the link to the outstanding the video at ECPA D, here it is.

If you like trench railroads, you'll love this video.
