Good evening Sir Michael !

You will be pleased (I hope) that the M.M.M  R.O.W now stands at 105.00689' !!
Dave the postman (the coolest mail-'person' :cool: out there !) brought me a YARD of HO code-83.
(looks like the E.U are yet to crackdown on PECO, for weights & measures !)

It does look a tad smallish (compared to the code-100, I had already)...
...& WHAT ! the hell are they on about with code-82 IL-115; I noticed that & thought W.T.F !
(what is it for ??... 1/1000" ... are they NUTS ?!)

Your handlayed did look very (nice) Brit. to me (go on, chuck us a pic. up !).

I got the yard of PECO code-83 HO, for a 'quick fix' on the  enginehouse & NEW turntable trackage (both buried).

I did find 5mm x 1.6mm P.C.B uncut-strips (could cut my own; if I'm :Crazy: ).
Also eBay Obeche in 5x3mm strips; I think 50-of 1 yard/metre for 20 Quid; not too bad.

This means the ties at 1:35 would be approx. 6.9" x 4.1" ... Mmmm ...
... a bit wide possibly...
... but who knows ??

The spikes I have are PECO IL-? & Shinohara HOn3 !
(I also have a soldering-iron & some Jack Daniels)

Thanks for the info. Michael.

They have (allegedly) struck $$$ up at the metorite-crater on the mountain...
