Re: Back to 4mm, new layout plan.

AnyRail, value for money? depends on how you calculate it, I bought my copy, admittedly at £35, 2 or 3 years ago & I'm still guaranteed at least one more full version upgrade. Based on my experience they also deserve praise for their customer service, when I lost my registration details & so...

Re: Using Insulation Board as the base

Hi John thanks for your quick reply, I'm using the 25mm insulation board. I'm taking my inspiration from this video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_8WzxHrhlI He is spraying directly onto the silver surface so my question is do I need to use any particular type of spray paint so it will key t...

Re: Montfort's Bridge

Bad news. After a lot of testing, I found that my layout doesn't have enough operating potential. I can make only two kind of shunting moves. Back to the workbench ! Fortunately I found another idea ! :D Well, good to see your staying positive and still moving foward! That video is quite interestin...

Re: New layout

Agree with MG, I'd never thought of it. Marvelous modern era workings. The motive power is nothing I've ever seen. If I dare say, would love to see some video of that most interesting goods train banging through the cross over. So this is why I'm so slow at getting the job done, to busy playing tra...

Re: Transferring a baseboard....

Since the dawn of Millville, my model railway, there have always been issues with the baseboards. Basically, well, erm, the plywood top lies on a table. Yup. A 2 inch thick solid oak table. The creation of Millville coincided with the purchase of a new kitchen table. Despite me trying to persuade t...

One review described the series as "the best guilty pleasure currently available" so it's no wonder its been renewed for a 2nd season.

Re: All Change -- Well Not Quite!

I bought it on this site a little while back. I believe it is a Southern (I stand to be corrected) six wheel brake van. It is a white metal kit, and is heavy. I love it :lol: Glencairn Is it a leap too far to imagine Toby as a candidate for conversion to a "motorised van" - to push round ...
