New Range announcements

QUite a few very nice surprises in the range, Thompson Pacifics, W1 etc The RMweb page actually is the best place to view the range at the moment, the sound of jaws dropping is perceptable https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/150159-hornby-2020-range-announcements/ Jim

Re: Model Rail Scotland 2020

Sorry Ex-Pat, need to go on the Friday, promise I won't hoover up all the bargains. (Very short shopping list this year) :D

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

So, after initially granting permission for a hut to be purchased and put in the garden, said permission has now been withdrawn on the basis that "it is too big", "we will lose the use of the patio" (that we never used anyway) or "it will make an already small garded too sma...

Re: Hornby 2020 Speculation Thread - 100 years of Hornby

Speaking of the Clan, it is one of the most talked about locomotives in most Hornby Forums, almost reachin legendary status. Even though the actual metal tools was destroyed surely the CAD drawings for the tooling remain and new tooling could be created. Even putting about a rumour that they were go...

Re: Modular DCC Inglenook

@Paul-H, dowels is a good idea. As it happens, I'm pretty sure I have some knocking around, left over from various items of furniture that have since been taken apart . If I understand correctly, the idea would be to drill holes in the sides of the board, and push a dowel into one end so that the b...

Re: Plausible WR Passenger Operations?

Rule 1 applies - It's your layout and if you want a visiting Gresley Pacific - so be it! :D Nothing in what you propose sounds far fetched, if you wanted to be more prototypical you could expand your collection and "time group" sets of locos and coaches and have running sessions set in var...

Re: Best Track for Semi-permanent OO DCC layout

My advice is to avoid anything that has to be frequently dismantled, any type of Settrack will work initially, but frequent assembly and dismantling will slacken off the rail joiners and you also have to think about a reliable power supply to the track, especially for DCC. Get a small board that wil...

Re: Simple horseshoe layout

The terminus could be based on Fort William of Mallaig which are both simple Island platform termini with a siding, the halt would be just a platform beside the line (e.g. Loch Eil outward Bound). You might wand a fiddle yard off scene for the train to go

Re: Hornby 2020 Speculation Thread - 100 years of Hornby

Wonder if the J36 sold well enough for further versions to be produced, perhaps a tender cab version (just to annoy Ex-Pat :D ), would also think they will be eagerly awaiting news of the new Trenitalia west coast Pendolino livery so that they can get a version out ASAP. Wonder if the Hattons decisi...

Re: Railway room safety

This was something that I was aware of when I had the layout in the loft as when I came to think about it, I had several flammable liquids, the layout was made of wood with cardboard buildings that would burn easily, and there were the usual sources of fire, such as soldering irons, relays with a ri...

Re: BACHMAN SPLIT CHASSIS

Are all the nylon bushes still intact, these commonly fracture and become dislodged, can be easily sorted with a bit of superglue.
