Re: Getting started

I have to agree with Mountain. £250 is too much.
It's here for £225 https://www.petersspares.com/hornby-r11 ... o-gauge.ir
I'd make an offer at £200 then see what the seller comes back to you with.
Thanks

Re: Backscene blending

I like Dublo's suggestion. A level / zebra crossing. :)
The two contrasting colours of black and white would distract the eye away from the join as well as hide it.

Re: Backscene blending

Hi Ewood and welcome to the forum. :)
I think that perspective looks really good. Once the white lines are lined up properly it'll make a difference.
You might need a reason for the cars to be stationary. Perhaps traffic lights permantently on red. :idea:

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

I managed to pick up a hole cutting set from the boot sale this weekend for £4 so set about cutting the new holes for the wiring run this evening. I have only cut new holes in the original baseboard, leaving the rest until they have all been connected so I know where the holes can go, unlike the ori...

New Gaugemaster GM360 Catalogue

News just in. Gaugemaster have released a new catalogue. I've never seen one before. I was there on Sunday and yet they weren't promoting it.

They do, but then bundle all of them together and try to sell it to us for nigh on £6 every month in the form of a magazine. :lol:

Re: Lledo Days Gone scale??

It's funny you should mention that Bufferstop. I was "playing cars" with a young member of the family yesterday and noticed that all the cars seem to be roughly the same length but you can spot the scaling of the boxes they came in a mile off. I think some were Hot Wheels cars though. Than...
