Hi Michael & Dan.

Thank you both for the info & ideas on the M.M.M track.
SUPERB loco Mr.S. ! :bg:

Pleased to hear D&RGW ties are 8"x6"x72"...
...that 5x3mm Obeche, I think has got me convinced !

Nice thing with the 3mm height (I think it's an 1/8" realy)...
...is P.C.B-ties are 1.6mm high (1/16")...
...so for the switches; I can glue 2 P.C.B-ties together...
...& BINGO ! the wood-ties & soldered ones MATCH ! :brill:

" IL-115 is + 4 thou" wider on the rail head, + 3 thou" wider on the foot & same height as IL-83."

Cheers Michael; that is great info...
...I guess the rail in my Yard of HO track, must be IL-83...
...will investigate with micrometer !

" Shinohara spikes ?  Where from please ?."

Sorry to say, I bought the Shinohara HOn3 spikes about 20 years ago !...
...from Bernie 'Victors' in Islington, London.
No idea where in the U.K they could be had now. :old dude:

There REALY IS a meteorite ! :shocked:
I'll put some pictures up in a bit.
I have quite a few 'cool rocks'...
...but the meteorite is THE COOLEST by far !

( the M.M.M.M.M.&.M.Co. could cost me a MINT in dry-lettering sheets, if they ever expand !) :f:
