Re: Lumsdonia Website and YouTube Updates

I could do with spending some time reading your site. There is a lot on there to read. It must have taken ages to write. It is certainly getting to be a site with more substance and content! :) It does take quite some time, several hours to create each new page. A lot comes from text I have written...

Re: Lumsdonia Website and YouTube Updates

Due to frequent questions on forums and facebook, the mysterious subject and strong debate on Cork vs Nothing vs Foam has resulted in me making a webpage guide to direct questioner's to!

Re: Is a final coat of Acrylic clear needed?

I don't think it is necessary for non rolling stock, that are not handled regularly, as static items if not touched will not get the surface disturbed or rubbed.

Re: Getting started

If you intend to 'move/upend/split' the layout, you need something much more robust than 2x1! If you intend to 'hang' from above, then you need the next level of strength!

Re: Mortar colour

I tend to use cream with a hint of grey (or less black) and mix my own. The trick is that no mortar looks the same in any one area of a wall or building. By not mixing thoroughly, different shades can be applied in different area's. For under a bridge (very damp) I have even used cream and green!

Re: Lumsdonia

Cheers Dad-1 and Dublo. Been working away, so progress is slow. Finally cracked the bearing supports (principles) for the bridges, the steel bridges all have pins in the legs and locating holes in the piers. Testing and casting of bearings is proceeding.

Re: UppyDownyRoundyRoundyRailway

Good old magnahesion technology! Seems a useful upgrade. Your lift out section aapears concerningly large, and heavy but without it would be quite a crawl to get to the operating well.Good luck! I couldn't have said it differently! Power base seems to work well for all! How will you handle the lift...

Re: As exotic as it gets, EE Gas Turbine 3

Where will they get the recorded sound from? There's nothing remotely like it that's running. There's the experimental APT but that was a turbine with electric transmission. The could always come down to Lumsdonia and record the JETSTAR! :lol: That really is a project among projects. Truly an engag...

Re: New Railway Modellers Shop

I recently ordered from them and am very happy with the speed service and they sorted out a problem of the original manufacturers, with no hesitation whatsoever. Very happy customer.
