Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Thanks Jim,

I must admit, when it first came to life I knew it wasn't going to be the last I'd have.

Thanks

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Hi everyone, I had big plans to get loads done over the weekend but it just didn't happen. I did manage to have a bit of fun on the layout. I bought a Hornby TTS sound decoder for my 67. I have never had anything with sound before. But at less than 40 quid I thought it was worth a punt. To try it ou...

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Mine was a cheap eBay item. It did come with a handy reducer and a small brush ended attachment. This seems to seal against the wagons and increase the suction. More luck than judgement though.

Thanks

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Thanks PNP, I am yet to make a control panel for the loader. Basically the switches and rotary control knob are hanging by wires. The track is dirty so the slow running is very bad. I was simply having a play and thought I'd film it. Also a little practice will help me out. I am going to cut a pit u...

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

This is a quick video meant as a test for the gravel loader.

Rough round the edges, and the hand of god due to dirty track. But I am happy how it works

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

I think moving figures could be a stretch, but never say never! I fell on my feet with the faller vehicles. My era was set by my favourite ECML livery. Dark blue gner. It just so happens that this seems to be a popular era for the faller cars. I only pick them up when they are well priced. They are ...

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Thanks end2end I like other things moving too. That's also why I have a few faller vehicles. I'm just getting into servos. The gravel loader chute moves up and down with a servo. The faller cars are stopped with servos / magnets. I'm planning on having some opening gates and maybe one or two other t...

Re: Hello from across the pond!

Hello and welcome,

I agree with Dave. Nothing wrong with the traditional 'train set'. It's what is going to get your juices flowing for your next project

There is a wealth of information on here, don't be afraid to ask

Thanks

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

Hi Jim,

This is really nice work. I'm very impressed. I am currently messing around with tin foil making corrugated sheets to clad a building in my gravel loading facility. If it's half as nice as your work I'll be happy.

Keep it up, it's looking brilliant

Thanks

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Hi Lenht,

You're very kind. It does still feel like there is a long way to go, but I'm getting there.

Hopefully I will get another update on over the weekend as I'll be away next week. I'm mainly working on the gravel loader at the moment

Thanks

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Jim,

I was thinking exactly the same thing re: lighting. It is a relatively easy conversion but will add a lot of atmosphere. At least, that's the hope

Thanks

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Hi Jim, Thank you for the comment on the ballast. I did the tracks about two years ago but never filled in the gaps in between. I quite like the look of the new stuff against the weathered stuff. I think I may come back in with the airbrush and tone down the tracks again and leave the new ballast as...

Re: Kavster's Loft Build

Hi Kavster, I have just read your thread for the first time. You are making really good progress with your loft conversion and your baseboards. I do have one suggestion. You could screw on a length of thin ply to the front of the baseboards. Let it protrude 30 or 40mm above the surface and then bend...
