i am nearly ready to test my 2" burrell on compressed air.
I therefore need to buy a sutable air compressor, can anyone recomend a sutable compressor? I will hopefully hopefully be building a larger scale model next (DCC Road or scenic) so all suggestions are most welcome.

Ello chap,

Take a butchers through the forum, I believe it to be Tony as well as a few others have said what kind they use, I believe a little one from summat like B&Q did the job fine for one person. I've been thinking though with regards to some comments left regards to WATER in the system afterwards from the air, MIGHT be worth seeing of you can get ya mitts on a water seperator??

Best Regards,

LilyJack Cool
