Re: Like Father like Son

What a great gift. :) The choice of 009 combined with the distance to Gaugemaster will work very well. I was in Gaugemaster a couple of weeks ago and they do cater for many scales that some model shops do not, from Z right upto G. Also just in passing, near there is also MORRIS MODELS of Lancing. Ga...

Re: Linka

Thanks e2e, but I think the problem with the bottom left is that you have used a B3 window in a B2 tile! Mine and dublo's work fine if the correct window is fitted! Silly me. :lol: I thought they were generic. I must say that the bottom middle and left are not tiles I recognise! I do not know of a ...

Re: Dapol Wagons

Armed with the product code you should be able to find it elsewhere and maybe cheaper too. :)

Re: Dapol Wagons

I use this one https://www.dccconcepts.com/product/bac ... rd-14-5mm/
DCG-BB145 Back to back gauge for RTR (ready to run) NOT the 14.85 version.
Solid brass and no messing about. :D

Re: Linka

Here's a couple of test pieces and how your window glazing fits Timbersurf. I used different windows from different glazing sheets to test a few out and placed the test tiles on a piece of paper over a light so they can be seen. First an overall view with 5 windows with glazing. (I broke the bottom ...

Re: Dapol Wagons

Further the Bigmet's reply, I always replace all Dapol wheels with Hornby spoked wheelsets, and to Bufferstops, yes get yourself a back to back gauge.
It's INVALUABLE! :mrgreen:
And always check the back to backs of ANY new wheelset. Even from the factory they can be out of gauge.
Thanks

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

Just a couple of pictures of the decoder tester so far. TesterCircuit1sm.jpg TesterCircuit2sm.jpg I haven't tested it yet, rather waiting until it's finished with the 4 pin lead attached. I didn't have any orange 16.0 wire for the "other way" wires coming off the board so they are grey and...

Re: Dapol Wagons

I was actually doing this yesterday to a small loco. :D I use pieces of lead sheet cut up. The same stuff used for roofing. It's easy to cut with tin snips and you can make the "weight" as large or as small as you want. In my Dapol wagons I have a peice covering the whole inner floor of th...

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

The decoder tester is nearly built but I need the 4 pin lead to finish. I've managed to find a 4 pin lead with pins on one end and a socket on the other end. There are 2 versions both by TCS. TCS 1410 4 Pin Mini Connector Coloured Wires £11.00 TCS 1475 4 Pin Micro Connector Coloured Wires £12.50 htt...

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

After sending a message to the seller, what I thought was a 4 pin DCC lead with socket to attach a decoder to my circuit actually isn't so can anyone point in the right direction please? Ideally it would be leads to a 4 pin DCC SOCKET also with an adaptor to change the end from a socket to 4 pins. O...

Re: Sleeper grime

Yes. I did the same. You don't really want to paint the rail tops though.
