Re: Little Stainsacre

With the edging fixed, I laid a temporary loop of track down and watched a train trundle around.

Now that I know it works, I need to raise the trackbed up a couple of inches from the base:

Re: Little Stainsacre

Version two is underway.

I will build the baseboard 'upside down'... the flat bit is on the bottom and the scenery will rise above it, very much like Geoff's St Oval pictured above.

Re: Identify decoder

I have no experience of the Hornby system, but a quick google search suggests that it can.

If you dont have a manual you can view and download one on the Hornby site.

If you get something worth less than it should be, kick up a mighty stink. Demand they sort it yesterday, tell the world how they have been wronged.

If you get something worth more, it’s not your fault, keep it.
