Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

Ordered a 12v 2amp power supply that I was hoping would be man enough to switch the points as well as power the one signal. All the points work fine except the one with the signal associated with it, there is a PL-13 switch mounted to the point motor to switch the signal but the extra "drag&quo...

Re: Deadend Lane, a micro 00 gauge layout

Lights MK2 :D They help take the edge off the bufferstop LEDs if nothing else. Had three altogether but feels like that would have been too many so just went with the two, same as with the previous lights. https://thumbs2.imagebam.com/59/8d/e1/2c2d521348462085.jpg https://thumbs2.imagebam.com/97/e5/...

Re: Deadend Lane, a micro 00 gauge layout

Need to replace the lights I had already fitted, they started behaving a bid odd and were flickering and a lot dimmer than they were to begin with. Not really sure why as they were supposed to be usable on either AC or DC and a wide range of voltages, perhaps wiring them into the DCC bus wasn't the ...

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

It looks quite atmospheric with the building lights on. Often you see model buildings with every light in the house turned on! Yours is much more realistic with just one or two rooms lit up. A couple of streetlamps would add some more nighttime ambience- there's a guide somewhere to making your own...

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

Few milestones today, Dapol class 68 with sound turned up and I made a bit more progress on lighting a few of the buildings in the town. Will finish the wiring another day when it isn't quite so dam hot :twisted: https://thumbs2.imagebam.com/ad/a9/77/54d8681348002146.jpg https://thumbs2.imagebam.com...

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

Ordered a load of the Woodland Scenics lighting stuff. Put the 3 lights in the depot area, got some nano lights that will light 3 buildings in the town area as well as a few others. The wires on the lamposts are so dam fiddly and you can barely see them :D They connect into an adapter that then allo...

Re: Deadend Lane, a micro 00 gauge layout

This has now sprung the fiddle yard on it that I had planned on all along, at least now I can switch locos around a bit and have a slightly longer area to run the trains on. The top piece of track is just an unpowered storage area. https://thumbs2.imagebam.com/11/c9/e8/51967c1347560604.jpg Got a few...

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

Quite pleased with how this bit has turned out so far :mrgreen: https://thumbs2.imagebam.com/3c/0c/1e/7afa8a1342952973.jpg https://thumbs2.imagebam.com/aa/1a/0a/20d5211342952975.jpg This is looking good. The police box on the corner could allow for some interesting cameo appearances- perhaps a cybe...

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

This looks great. I missed it first time round in 2017. The ground cover in front of the shops/houses looks really good. It’s a nice tidy little layout. Top work. Thanks Dan Thanks, by the time I started my dad wasn't very well and he died shortly after so I lost the will to carry on with it at the...

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

Started remodelling the left section, was never that happy with the retaining wall there so now I have opened it out so at least there is now a way to get into the depot itself :mrgreen: https://thumbs2.imagebam.com/7b/79/5b/056fc51346054470.jpg Also just about finished the ballasting, few little ga...

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

Back from the dead :D Dug this out again during lockdown and decided to crack on with it. Difficult to tell seeing as the previous pictures no longer work but I redid the top area which originally was just a storage area for locos and not scenic in anyway. Made a top and put a few houses, cars, figu...

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

Progressing slowly with the ballasting,starting to get the bare board covered over. Done another hard standing area to reduce the amount of ballasting required a little bit :) https://t11.pixhost.org/thumbs/167/46877789_20170713_170453.jpg https://t11.pixhost.org/thumbs/167/46877792_20170713_170500....

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

Very slow progress but used some MDF i had left over to create an area of hard standing. Needs a bit of weathering and deciding what i want to put on it :) Dummy point motors also in place now need the conduit and lineside boxes to make it look a bit more purposeful. https://t11.pixhost.org/thumbs/7...
