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 ...

Lidl's currently have a range of DIY tools on sale, sanders, jig saws, soldering irons etc etc. Having resisted the temptation to buy anything more expensive, I treated myself to a "Precision Tool Holder with Magnifying Glass", useful for fine detailed work whether soldering or painting. A...

Re: Layout Advice Please

I tried anyrail and was impressed, but it is limited to 50 pieces. I had a go with SCARM and was very impressed, so that is what I am using. In a moment of wild extravagance a bought a copy 2 or 3 yrs ago for about £35, I'm on ver6 with a free upgrade to ver 7 when ever that comes. So 3 or 4 yrs fo...

Re: Layout Advice Please

Hi, Attached is my first draft of a layout for an N gauge board. It is not based on anything other than my imagination. The system will be DC as I cannot afford DCC.
