Re: A suspended railway...

+1 for the link given...

Pulleys etc could be used but I would be worried about dropping the layout! The winch system linked to would be cheaper than converting the loft and you will be warmer!

Re: Making a TMD

Have you considered track cleaning? The method you propose runs the risk of you removing paint or damaging the surface depending on your preferred track cleaning method. For this reason I would go with plasticard... Then whatever rail profile you are using you can accurately ensure the surface is sl...

Re: New Baseboard

That looks better... You should be able to reach things, but 720 is still quite a reach when you are building scenery. You will probably want to make the tunnel removable or have some other way of accessing those tracks in case of derailment.

Re: Power cuts with points

Does it cut when part of the loco is on the points, or when it is on the curve?

Re: Peco Code 55 Points help?

Hi, All I am trying to do is balance the argument so that people can make informed decisions whether to carry out the 'full' modification or only 'part' of it. My point (which seems to escape many people and I am going to give up trying) is that all this modification does is remove ALL possibility o...

Re: wiring electrofrog turnout`s

At the end of the day, it is up to the individual to weigh up whether all of the results are required: 1) Adding a point motor = the point can be thrown remotely 2) Adding an accessory switch to the above = improved electrical continuity through the point, thus improving slow running 3) Modifying th...

Re: Permanent / removable setup

Yes, that's the one... But it's saving grace is that it is open on a Sunday... Which is quite useful.

Re: Code 55 points...

Karhedron is correct, you don't need a switch but you do need to fit insulated rail joiners to both of the vee rails. As one of the reasons for selecting electrorog point work is smoother slow running then I would advise you use one, SEEP PM1s are cheap and incorporate a switch in to the motor. I ha...
