  1. I suspect that in this instance the fault, if any, lies not so much with the highway code as the design of the road layout. Many of these mini roundabouts are squeezed into the space ocupied by the original junction and the small size often makes it extreemly difficult for drivers to decide exactly who has presedence. There are a couple of roundabouts I encounter on a regular basis where traffic grinds to a halt because no-one can decide who should go first.

  9. I did some work on the workshop body at Duxford some years ago and was told then that it was originally a railway wagon body that had been re-purposed at the time, I'm not sure of the veracity of this though. PT

  12. I have this Swittch board charging No 1 if its of any interest, missing the two regulators though. PT
  13. Glad to hear its up and running, well done. Officially two 6v batteries with a capacity of between 85 -170 Ah, I run mine from a single 12v 85Ah leisure battery. For a mains power supply I use a 240 -12v caravan transformer, dont be tempted to use a Switch mode PSU as these will trip out on overcurrent when the rotary transfomers start up. PT
  14. Both the fuel pick-up tubes on my lightweight have the gauze filters, never had a problem with them blocking up. PT
