Re: Bass railways

Thanks Tim - very interesting - would like to have seen more of No.20. I've seen an Ordnance Survey map of the system and it's well worth looking at to appreciate the size of the system - I imagine there was much cursing at the level crossings in the town. There is a N gauge layout of the whole sys...

Re: Bass railways

Yes No20 is a bit of an oddball, I've not seen a BE loco of that style before the noses are much shorter than most. {Edit] Seems I miss identified it, it's a petrol powered loco (transmission not stated) which makes the design even more oddball! They were affectionately known as Coffee Pots, they h...

Re: Zoom Model Railway Talk

Advertising the subject matter in advance in some detail is a good plan too. Some of us have to participate very regularly in such online meetings. I find them pretty fatiguing, and am by no means alone in that experience. The result is selectivity: a decision to look in only if the session covers ...

Re: Control panels. Show us yours.

Wow that's a lot of tracks you have there Forfarian. :shock: :lol: Hmm, I didn't think to separate the switches from the actual track lines but can see why you've done it that way. The panel would be HUGE if you had the switches on the lines themselves as I plan to do. Thanks End2end The tracks on ...

This is my control panel about 4 months ago, it now has another row of switches along the bottom for all the LED gantry signals I have made during "lockdown"

Re: narrow gauge railway going

This railway is about 15 miles from me, it has been part of the summer scene in Arbroath for many years, but as the article says falling numbers doesn't pay the bills, It will be sad to see it go, maybe someone will buy it as a job lot and move it where it will be used.

You can make up your own mind which operating method you like and buy as required.
Surface mounted point motors are the easiest to fit, I have 46 of them, but its a personal choice.

Re: Extra Traffic for your Railway. Food for Thought

There was a regular traffic in outsize loads, transformers from Stafford north towards Sandbach. It had to transfer to road when the WCML was electrified (too much to take down once the masts were up. Still gets some use today, The islands along the A34 have straight through lanes gated at either e...

Re: Hiding surface mount point motors

Hi E2E I have 45 surface mounted point motors, I looked at hiding them also, but point motors are visible in real life, so what I have done is hide the wires. I have used different types of ground cover and PVA glue to hide the wires, at the same time keeping the hole in the baseboard as near the mo...

Re: Dynamis Ultima Function Problems

Hi Sam I am not conversant with the Dynamis as i have a NCE. Are you cancelling your actions after using them i.e. On the NCE control if i press any key for a selected sound, then after the sound is "used" i have to reset the key to zero by repressing that function key before it will work ...
