Re: OO 6x2 Small Layout

I have seen that used before but I would probably prefer to go with wood, something like 9mm ply and some 2x1 bracing. I've spent some time fiddling with plans and while I could get a decent fiddle yard at the top, it would need lots of complicated kickback arrangements to get any stock to the sceni...

Re: London loft build

That looks like the Royal Mail 128 - I had the blue one but sold it a while back, a superb running model. Can't wait to get a few for my new layout..

Re: OO 6x2 Small Layout

There is a wall at the left side, the door needs to open on the right end, so in theory I could use a cassette to load on a small train when the door is closed. I did want to keep it quite simple, however even though I find 6ft is quite a big space, I'm used to N not OO so it's not really possible t...

Re: OO 6x2 Small Layout

That was my main concern. It is actually 6' 6'' and there is absolutely zero room for extension. I'm not allowed the other spare room that would give me 10ft plus..

OO 6x2 Small Layout

Hi all Been away from the modelling for a little while due to a couple of moves, but finally settled in a nice house with a very appealing spare room. Not as big as I'd like but can't have it all. I don't want to make it too complicated, I will probably give up if I make it too big. I fancied and L ...

Re: Terrier's Shed №2 - Now Known as "Forton-on-Sea"

Any updates Chris? Not been on here in forever and I see you're going to N Gauge - I'm going the opposite way and changing to OO because I always break stuff in N because I'm rather ham fisted!

I had the Bachmann before I had the NCE and it was a good controller, I think it was only around £35

Re: Planning my layout

I used to do several plans, export them to a photo format such as JPEG and then stitch them together.

In the end I just bought it.

Re: Acton North - Modern North London 00

Great layout - love the plan and wish I had the space for something like it!

As for DCC, I use an NCE Powercab, it's easy to use but has a lot of features.

I can't remember how much it cost, something like £120.

Rolling Road

Hey all

Just wondering, since I don't have a full loop to run in new locos, is it possible to run them in using a rolling road?

Cheers
