Re: New to dcc large layout

I think you have seen the light with those comments :) Definitely progress slowly, it's part of the learning curve so you don't fall down a deep hole! :o Get it up and running on DC first, but if you want 4 separate running lines, you will need 4 controllers (do you have 4?) each with its own connec...

Re: New to dcc large layout

You would need feedback of train positions or software that controls set distances of running, both require special software and a PC connected to any DCC you choose, I think the software can get very expensive but some are free. You may need encoders with Railcom. I will leave the details to those ...

Re: 8x4 roundy round

They look good. Needs a ghosted worn out advertising sign on the end brick walls!
I think scalescenes have just brought out a transfer. One day I will have a go printing from PC onto a transfer sheet (it's very low down the investigation list, but I have a pack of transfer paper)

Re: New to dcc large layout

Hi tanks for your replies I am new to dcc so I may be expecting too much, I thought I would be able to start 1 train on 1 circuit then as I have a long circuit start start a second train on the same circuit at the same speed when the first is half way round. Then leave these running at set speed th...

Re: Leberecht, My Prussian modelling adventure.

can't see an issue with Jif, its just a detergent with an abrasive powder suspended in it, but it just don't sound right, laving it on your models.

Re: panning
You need a steady cam! If you can weld, I can knock up a steady boom in 3D for you to make two of. One for you and one for me!

Or just buy one of these

Re: West Bay Bridport - Club Layout

Time certainly fly’s, we have now been in four years and I have only managed to complete one micro that has now been scrapped. I was lolling along, taking my time, but I used the excuse of "Guy" visiting, to ramp up the main completion, a fixed goal is definitely needed to push you forward.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge (Incorporating the Allanshaw Inglenook)

The loading bank looks great! Some people collect penny's in a jar, I collect all my scrap, offcuts, swarf and oddments in readiness for my eventual needs for a scrap yard and scrap loads! :lol:
