Re: where are the members ???????

how is it negative? could be used to drive traffic here, I miss great threads all the time on here, a group where you can post something like "hey I've just updated my thread with this, here's the link" could be useful? was just a question

Re: where are the members ???????

There are times when I wonder why I spend so much time on here, exactly WHY ?? Certainly in the early days I was a new railway modeller, knew nothing about railways, but needed to find out the why's and wherefores as I wanted a reasonable standard. I was already an experienced modeller of scale air...

Re: where are the members ???????

...rmweb certainly gets a lot of activity, but over there I feel like an outsider looking in at a clique, and my posts get largely ignored... I have been a regular on RMWeb from its first week of operation. There are many distinct 'groupings', and many more such that have come and gone. I don't loo...

Re: Fitting lights to a steam loco with a 21 pin decoder

Main thing is... Is there room for anything additional? Many locos just wont have the space or headroom for additional PCBs. wouldn't be additional, would be to replace the ones that are already there to make soldering the various wires for lights etc a lot easier in the case of 21 pin decoders The...

Re: Fitting lights to a steam loco with a 21 pin decoder

while this thread is still relevant, has anyone used components from here before? looks like they would make fitting lights etc a lot easier, plus I also need a replacement socket for an n gauge loco

Re: Michaela's Layout

Michaela, I've said it before, you should live down here on the Dorset coast. I could give you several sound fitting jobs, and a few of those stone cottages wouldn't come amiss. I've got lazy and don't comment much nowadays, but you've been doing some cracking stuff. Geoff T. aha thank you, althoug...

Re: Something On Rails Made From Lollypop Sticks And Tea Stirers Challenge Thread.

wish I'd seen this thread sooner, is it still possible to join in? I recently spotted a large, unopened bag of tea stirrers in work and naturally my brain instantly started trying to work out how I could use them for model railway purposes...

Re: where are the members ???????

I did notice a big drop off in activity on here a few years ago, not sure why, I have a few people i made friends with on here on facebook and some I now know in real life, they're still building model railways but say they don't come here anymore, did something happen that I totally missed? or has ...

Re: Michaela's Layout

I would imagine that some of Bachmanns older models built before they started to add DCC sockets did not have much space. Example, there is only just enough room to hard wire a simple Lenz N gauge decoder which happened to be the smallest on the market at the time, and this was with a 00 gauge loco...

Re: Michaela's Layout

I've moved on from N to O-16.5 now, so although the scale is large, the little narrow gauge locos aren't! Having said that, my latest loco (my first attempt at a scratch-built body) probably did have space for a sound chip! Mind you, the noise of the mechanism would probably drown it out - and not ...

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street on a 1914/1919 theme

I'm liking that dock scene, particularly the way you've got the false perspective background in there
