Re: Scratch Building a Station Building

I know so many of you will have been unable to sleep wondering if I ever got round to finishing my station building so I thought I better finally do an update. The answer is still no, I still haven't finished it yet, so much for that original competition deadline, but while I have been recovering fr...

Lms coaches

To introduce some variety in colour to my locos plus the fact it looks gorgeous I am getting very tempted by the bachmann crimson lake patriot that is on offer at rails. The question is what coaching stock should I pair with it? Have got some carmine and cream mk1's but think they are too late in er...

Re: Sending locos to Bachmann for repairs

Have had very mixed experience with Bachmann service department, last time I sent a loco back it was with them for months, they were experiencing staff problems/shortages and when it finally came back I had to send it straight back again as the motion was binding. Cost me a fortune in postage. i loo...

Re: Derby Friargate LNER/ BR garage layout

Agree with the comments above, some great modelling, I love the bridge in particular. What did you use for your shop interior? Is it all scratch built? I am trying to detail the inside of my station building at the moment and it is taking ages scratch building everything, just wondered if you had us...

Re: Shuntig Puzzle wiring Problem

Plus have a look at Brian Lamberts website, explains everything really simply with lots of diagrams. Got me through writing up my layout including an electrofrog double slip on dcc and I am no electrician either.

Re: Shuntig Puzzle wiring Problem

How are you switching the polarity of the frog? Via a point motor or a switch?

Re: Hornby L1 front truck

Cheers for looking, if you do any quick fixes on the front pony truck I would be interested to know how they go, especially with a picture or two to make it easier for me to understand. :oops: Or is there a link to where you found it and were there pictures?

Thanks

Re: Hornby L1 front truck

I have has a L1 for a while and not had any problems with the front pony derailing, it just doesn't look very good the way it flops about on the corners. If there is an easy fix I would like to know as lately I have taken to running it bunker first so it looks better.

Sounds like you got a bargain.

Re: Scratch Building a Station Building

made a little bit of progress, has taken me a long time to make the little progress I have, seems to take ages cutting all these little pieces of microstrip. Have added the quoins round the corners of the building, not 100% happy with how they look, but I guess they are always going to look a bit st...
