Re: ROD 2-8-0 by Bachmann

roco, Whilst the Bachmann ROD models are 1:76 scale. as the full size engines were to the smaller British loading gauge, the 1:76 model would not look too out of place on a 1:87 HO layout. Apparently 46 of these engines went to China after the First World War, amongst the railways that got them ther...

ROD 2-8-0 by Bachmann

Folks, I see that Bachmann is issuing a model of the ex W.D. R.O.D. 2-8-0 locos. What has this to do with China, you may ask? After the Great War, a number of these engines were sold to China for use on various railways there. Some of them survived into People's Republic days, and there became the K...

Re: Attaching or posting photos, how to do so?

Mark,
'Upload attachment' tab, where is this?
Can't see it on this website.
I have an 'Attachment' tab on my normal e-mail set up, but cannot see how to marry it to this site.

Bill.

Of all the many photos therein, there are only about twenty that have depot buildings in them, and only one of them had a roof top sign. This was Sujiatun. The sign was sixteen single c...
