  1. Analogue Race Control, Lap Timing & Software.
    This set up works reliably, counts 1 to >10,000 laps, times to the msec, and all the components are easily available in the UK. My Python code is nothing to be proud of but it works. [email protected]
  2. Scratch building
    I designed and printed this 1/64 scale boat tail car. My favorite car of all time. Complete with picnic basket, serpent horn, and custom spoked wheels. A friend built and painted her. But will she float? Or fly?
  3. HO scale
    Can anyone help me identify these? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254678551244 They came from the States with some Tyco US-1 Many years ago. Although I have listed them on eBay if anyone on the Forum wants them I will end the listing and send them to you Free of Charge. I can rule out them being...

I started my page when I decided to resurrect my newsletter from a couple decades ago, so I can post pictures of my collection. I became famous for a minute by writing a couple articles for a now defunct, nationally...

    Here is a 1961 Marx set with the brass rails and early controls. This was the 1st train slot car set made in the world . The 2 cars have brass gears and a blade guide not a pin. But Marx in 1938-39 did make a race car- train set all electric and tinplate. So they made 2 car train sets before...

    Here is a HO Marx Corvette. Most people think 1962 was the 1st year of Marx HO cars but it was not. This car was made in 1961. The difference is the brass gear and the Blade guide not a pin guide. These 1961 slot cars with the blade guide are rare. Also early HO 1961 Marx trak had brass rails...

  12. HO scale
    Hi. I'm brand new to HO slot cars, in a way. My parents found the track I has as a kid. It has been in an attic for ~20 years. I am surprised by the quality of plastic used for the track. I have all the pieces to the track, but the picture below shows I'm missing 1. It was fun piecing it...

    Chatting to Roger at the Coventry Transport Museum event today we agreed on me taking a Tyco US-1 Road and Rail layout to Gaydon in 2018. I had been booked to be there with it in 2017, but an issue with a Stepladder changed all that! I see there have been a few postings about US-1 on the Forum...
