Re: One of my turns coming on...

Day after day
Love turns gray
Like the skin on a dying man
Night after night
We pretend it's all right
But I have grown older
And you have grown colder
And nothing is very much fun, anymore (except model railways)
And I can feel
One of all my turns coming on!!!!

:D :D :D :D :D

Re: Gateside and Northbridge (Incorporating the Allanshaw Inglenook)

Thanks Glencairn. Not much done over the past week, having been away from the layout "enjoying" (or should I say surviving) a weekend at Blackpool I am back home and recovering! I made a start at the low relief foundry building, by applying the "corrugated metal" cladding using p...

Re: DIESEL CLASS 20 HEADLIGHT CODES

Here is a photo of a loco correctly showing the indication http://www.rail-online.co.uk/img/s/v-3/p518104153-4.jpg If I remember correctly, all the lights remained lit, when the upper half of the disc was folded down it obscured the lamp and ensured that the correct code was displayed Jim

Re: Using Contiboard For A Baseboard?

MDF is like chipboard, OK when completely dry. 18mm MDF is quite heavy though, I would go for 12mm chipboard (cheap) or Ply (generally thought to be the best).

Even Radioshack is not completely dead, the name was bought by https://www.hobbytown.com/ and they still trade components.

Re: Using Contiboard For A Baseboard?

Re: Some general semaphore signal questions

I have an N-gauge layout, loosely based on GWR, which I now want to add semaphore signals to. At a couple of locations I have twin lines, fast and slow, merging into a single line. Would the fast and slow lines each have a single post, one in the six-foot between the lines, the other in the cess; o...

Re: Southern malachite coach livery

Did the railway liveries not get RAL numbers? AFAIK the system of recording all commercial colours by RAL number started in the 1930s so I would imagine that they would have received a coding.

Re: New Beginnings

You could keep an eye on the likes of Gumtree, model stuff comes up there on occasion, but you have to be quick. Facebook also has a but and sell feature where model stuff is featured.
