I am now building a new layout and wishing to custo...

ticket platforms

Ticket platforms were situated just before the regular platforms at stations where busy excursion trains arrived.
Llanberis station in the old county of Caernarfonshire had one.
My question is, How were they used?

Could it be that an automatic update has caused the problem? Has any one on this forum come across something similar. I would love to hear if the have and what...

A9CAD programme

I have been using the programme for quite a few years to design layouts and scratch build structures with good results. Unfortunately at the weekend, in the middle of drawing out a signal box for laser cutting I seem to have lost the properties window so no alterations or amendments can be made. The...

Father Brown BBC1 23/01/2019

Did anyone watch the episode of Father Brown yesterday? Ignoring all the unprototypical railway operating errors, can anyone identify the line and station used on location? Also the model featured in the story, has it been seen on the exhibition circuit or has it been reported on in the modelling ma...

Re: Too much weathering

Yes these are the wagons in question. I have remover the ICI lettering and the continuous brake details as the SUMMERS wagons were loose coupled and I have fixed ladders to each end. I have renumbered the wagons and have applied the SUMMERS lettering to the sides of the body. As some of the wagons w...

Too much weathering

I posed the following question on the Model Stripping page a week or so ago and am surprised that there have been no responses to it. Perhaps it is on the wrong page, so I am asking the question again under a new category. Someone out there must have a suggestion or two. "Having bought a RTR ra...

Re: Model stripping

Having bought a RTR rake of weathered wagons, I think that they are a little over weathered and would like to tone the weathering down a bit.
Any ideas please?

Using the track as a bus

My previous fixed layout was a large double track run around with associated goods yard and a ten road fiddle yard. The under board bus consisted of wire from twin core and earth mains wire with every piece of track connected by at least a pair of droppers. Electrically this proved to be ok. I have ...

I will shortly be fitting DCC decoders to some older diesel locos, to which I will also be fitting headlights with leds. What is the voltage output from the decoder on the yellow, white, green and purple wires so that I can fit white light leds with the correct resistors? I will not be fitting red r...
