Re: More eBay nonsense...........

One very experienced seller who really should know better has three listed describing them as "3 DAPOL or similar BR Mk 1 CORRIDOR COACHES in BR Maroon Livery OO Gauge". In all fairness to the dealer the starting price is only £15 so he's hardly describing them as Bachmann. or attempting t...

Thickness of Peco platform tops

Does anyone happen to know the thckness of the Peco platform tops. I have aquired a large number of platform edges and I would like to use plasticard for the surface which I intend to scribe, hence the need for the thickness required so I can buy the right size. Thanks in advance :D

Hi Ned and thanks, the controller is a Fleischmann one which came with the turntable I acquired about 20+ years ago for the princely sum of about £20, I knew it would come in hand...

Re: No name loft layout - Now named OUTSTREET

I have now decided on a name for my loft layout, OUTSTREET, it’s an anagram of what the wiring gave me ( Tourettes, :lol: ), the neighbours must have wondered what on earth I was swearing about in the loft.
