This is my version of Glynn Guest's free plan of Ogdensberg. I have timed it as the 2nd. August in 1937, which was the August Bank Holiday and the cars are all left hand drive with passengers for each. There is a story behind each group for my own satisfaction.
The main s/s is located on brass ferules that come with servos, the lifebelts are the 'heads' of brass rods that hold the s/s in place. Took me ages to work that one out. Motor is a 555 with an old Hitec esc and runs on 6 cells, moves nicely.
The ramps were made of coffee stirrers but it is crap wood and would not do it again, they do hinge down on dolls house hinges. Of the vehicles all to 1 : 43 scale the most sought after is the motor cycle and side car, I put in her a very disappointed girl friend expecting a naughty weekend but ending up in a sidecar!
